Trulieve Cannabis has begun the first state inspection for the sale of low-THC medical cannabis products at one of its partnering independent pharmacies in Georgia.
Georgia recently announced it would be allowing pharmacies in the state to dispense medical cannabis to registered patients. The development makes the state the first in the country to allow pharmacies to sell cannabis.
Trulieve-partnering pharmacies in Georgia have now begun to offer a range of low-THC products including nasal spray, tinctures, capsules, and topicals.
Riverside Pharmacist Jordan Loggins commented: “This marks a significant milestone in the advancement of access to medical cannabis here in the state of Georgia.
“This inspection gets us one step closer to putting Trulieve’s full selection of low-THC products on our shelves and, ultimately, improving the lives of more of our patients.”
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 evaluated Riverside’s inventory management operations, security protocols, and adherence to Georgia state regulations.
Trulieve Georgia President, Dr Lisa Pinkney, added: “We are excited to partner with Riverside and other independent pharmacies throughout the state.
“Having these mutually beneficial relationships with independent pharmacists across the state increases our ability to reach new patients in more communities.”
“At Trulieve, we have always been on the forefront of expanding access to medical cannabis and we are proud to be part of Georgia’s pioneering efforts in this arena,” said Trulieve’s Chief Executive Officer Kim Rivers.
“Working with independent pharmacies like Riverside offers us a new and innovative channel to educate and serve Georgia patients.”
