One of Two Missouri CBD Dispensaries Open for Business

One of two licensed Missouri businesses legally allowed to grow and dispense CBD is now open and has been serving patients for about two months.

BeLeaf is growing and dispensing a high-CBD strain of industrial hemp called Noah’s Releaf imported from California. It so far has about 20 customers from across the state that range in age from 8 months to 33 years, a local NBC affiliate reported. All suffer from severe epilepsy.

Missouri law only allows for those with intractable epilepsy to legally obtain CBD oil, although an effort to legalize a broad medical cannabis program is underway in the state.

The dispensary is located in Earth City, a suburb of St. Louis. The second licensed CBD producer, the Noah’s Arc Foundation, hopes to be serving patients by the end of the summer.

Aside from Florida and Texas, Missouri is the only state in the nation that has passed a workable CBD program that parrots broader medical marijuana laws. It permits non-psychoactive CBD but strictly prohibits any level of THC that would get a consumer high. Numerous other conservative states have passed similar laws that are generally unworkable because they require a doctor’s prescription or some other provision that can’t be implemented.

    Why can’t they just issue this for BIPOLAR Patients? Son will not take prescription drugs. He doesn’t like how he feels on them.
    Desperate to save my home from being destroyed by my 24 yr old son?. Can this be ordered from a State were it’s legal?

      You can pick it up in Cape Girardeau at a place called Hempies. Same CBD oil as state has legalized but extracted from hemp in a different way from what I understand. My son has uncontrollable epilepsy, he is now 22 yrs old. He also has HUGE spells of anger and trashes our home as well. We have visited his Neurologist today and he is signing the needed forms for us to get it the way the state has mandated and will let you know how it works out.
