( — March 22, 2018) Tallahassee, FL –The number of marijuana dispensaries in the U. S. is on the rise, especially now that the plant is legal for medical use in 29 states. Even before legal cannabis businesses started opening rapidly across the country, the public has already known the benefits of medical marijuana. What they may not know, according to successful businesswoman Kim Rivers, are the benefits of marijuana dispensaries.

“More and more marijuana dispensaries are opening in states where marijuana is legal,” says Rivers, who also serves as the CEO for the Florida-based marijuana dispensary Trulieve. “But there are still many people who fail to see just how much marijuana dispensaries can benefit the people. They are either simply skeptical or distrust them due to preconceived opinions or stigma towards cannabis. Some of them hesitate to switch from their dealer because they are already used to doing business with their dealer.”

Whatever thoughts people may have about the growing medical marijuana industry, Rivers says that there is a lot to be thankful for now that medical marijuana dispensaries are available. People who suffer from medical conditions that medical marijuana can treat or help ease the symptoms of no longer have to resort to buying through illegal means just to get the medication they need.

One of the major disadvantages of buying from a dealer is the anxiety-inducing risk of being arrested. People who buy medical marijuana illegally either have to deal with the anxiety that comes with it or get arrested on the streets. People do not have to worry about either of these things when buying from a legal marijuana dispensary.

Another major benefit of marijuana dispensaries is the assurance that their products are of high quality. Marijuana dispensaries only market products that have been tested in a laboratory environment. Trulieve, the first fully-licensed cannabis business in Florida, grows the plant in a climate-controlled environment in compartments that enable them to control plant health and growth one-on-one as opposed to growing marijuana in a massive space. They then do in-house testing and third-party testing, implementing only the strictest lab standards in the country.

“Apart from ensuring that our products are of the highest quality, we also post lab results for our patients and they can easily look up the item by batch number to see the test results,” adds Rivers.

“The medical marijuana industry is growing fast and marijuana dispensaries will only continue to improve and provide high-quality cannabis products as well as excellent customer service.”
