Maui Grown Therapies opened Maui Grown Express Lahaina, the state’s first click and go fulfillment center available to registered medical cannabis patients who order online.

The fulfillment center is open Wednesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1087 Limahana Street in Lahaina. The pharmacy began placing patients by appointment on Wednesday March 17.

“West Maui patients can now avoid going through the tunnel to retrieve their orders in Kahului,” said Dr. Gregory Park, Co-Founder and Chief Compliance Officer of Maui Grown. “Our ‘Click and Go’ pharmacy in Lahaina is designed in such a way that up to two patients can be treated quickly and safely at the same time by appointment.”

The state of Hawaii was one of the first states to legalize medical cannabis in 2000. In 2015, the legislature set criteria for the Ministry of Health to select and regulate licensees for medical cannabis pharmacies. In 2016, Maui Grown Therapies received the top rating out of 66 applicants for eight statewide pharmacy licenses.

In August 2017, Maui Grown Therapies became the first Hawaii pharmacy to supply medical cannabis patients in its flagship store in Kahului. Since then, more than 5,000 patients have visited the Maui Grown Therapies pharmacy at 44 Pa’a Street in downtown Maui Lani.
