Trulieve Cannabis announced the first state inspection for the sale of low-THC medical cannabis products at one of the Company's partnering independent pharmacies in Georgia, the first state in the nation to allow pharmacy sales of medical cannabis.
Riverside Pharmacy in Gainesville was among the first independent pharmacies in the state to apply for a special permit to dispense low-THC medical cannabis products. On Tuesday, October 24, inspectors with the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency will evaluate Riverside's inventory management operations, security protocols, and adherence to Georgia state regulations, paving the way for the locally owned pharmacy to dispense Trulieve's wide array of low-THC products to its customers.
Licensed pharmacies that meet certain requirements can apply through the Georgia Board of Pharmacy for a special permit to sell products derived from low-THC oil, the only form of medical cannabis currently legal in Georgia. Applying pharmacies must submit to inspection by the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency and must also obtain all their low-THC products from companies that are licensed by the Georgia Access to Medical Cannabis Commission ("GMCC"). Trulieve Georgia is one of only two companies currently operating under Class 1 production licenses issued by the GMCC.
Trulieve-partnering pharmacies will offer a range of low-THC products under Trulieve's Momenta brand including nasal spray, tinctures, capsules, and topicals.
