Arkansas Medical Cannabis Cultivator On Track To Be Growing By Early 2019

A representative for one of five companies awarded licenses to grow for Arkansas’ fledgling medical marijuana industry says the business will be ready to start cultivating and supplying the product early next year. Oklahoma businessman Ben Kimbro, a Tulsa City Council member, is director of public affairs for Harvest Inc., a national medical cannabis operator based in Arizona.

Harvest holds medical cannabis licenses in seven states. The company’s CEO, Steven White, has a small ownership stake in Natural State Wellness Enterprises, one of five Arkansas companies to be awarded a cultivation license.

Other license holders are Natural State Medicinals Cultivation, Bold Team LLC and Delta Medical Cannabis Co., all based in the state’s Delta region. Osage Creek Cultivation is headquartered in Berryville (Carroll County) and registered to Jay Trulove, whose family owns Trulove Dirtworks. Messages left for Trulove and Osage Creek’s attorney, David Nixon, were not returned.     MORE
