BRISTOL, Va. – Dharma Pharmaceuticals, the first medical cannabis dispensary in Virginia, has opened its doors. Dharma Pharmaceuticals is one of four licensed medical cannabis companies in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Located in Bristol, the company’s mission is to provide patients with high-quality, safe and effective plant-based medicines, all while bringing crucial jobs to an economically distressed area.

“We are eager to provide a new treatment option to Virginia patients and also provide jobs and economic growth within our community,” says Dharma Pharmaceuticals Co-Founder and CEO, Shanna Berry. “This has been a long process to build out a facility, grow cannabis plants from seed, process and extract the cannabis oils, and finally have product ready for patients. As a lifelong resident of Southwest Virginia, I am thrilled to bring this life-changing medicine to our state and provide much needed jobs in our community.” Berry has waited ten years for the climate in Virginia to shift to allow for medical cannabis and the start of Dharma Pharmaceuticals.


Berry is joined by Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Jack L. Page and Co-Founder and Chief Pharmacy Officer, Michael Johnson. Johnson, who has 27 years of Virginia pharmacy experience, is thrilled to finally serve patients, saying “Each patient seeking medical cannabis is unique, and I look forward to cultivating relationships with them to develop treatment plans customized for their individual needs.” Page says, “Dharma Pharmaceuticals is truly a homegrown effort led by local business professionals with a passion for our community and helping patients gain access to medical cannabis. We are the first to produce and sell medical cannabis to Virginians thanks to every member of our team.”
