Windward Oahu dispensary passes inspection; set to open this week

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The first medical cannabis dispensary store in Windward Oahu is set to open this week.

Noa Botanicals has a wide range of products for those with a medical cannabis card.

The Kaneohe dispensary is set to open as early as Friday after the location passed a final state Department of Health inspection Wednesday.

The company says it wants to share the medicinal and therapeutic benefits of cannabis.

“It’s really just a plant, it’s nothing to be scared of and we’re trying to get past this stigmatization,” Brian Goldstein, CEO and founder of Noa Botanicals said. “We’re seeing the legalization of cannabis both medically and recreationally taking place across the country.”

The dispensary is located in Windward Center. It’s the latest of a handful of dispensaries to open in the state.
