The new medical marijuana dispensaries in Osceola County look similar to other Harvest Health & Recreation facilities across the county as shown above. If you don’t have a medical marijuana card, you are not permitted inside Osceola facilities.
Last month, the first of three dispensaries permitted for Osceola County opened in the heart of Kissimmee’s tourism corridor near U.S. Highway 192 and State Road 535.
It’s called Harvest, and it recently became one of the largest cannabis companies in America.
Despite its big name and profits, the local Harvest site that opened Feb. 12 is housed in a purple pop-up modular trailer behind an abandoned, boarded-up Bob Evans restaurant affixed with prominent No Trespassing signs.
The old eatery is being gutted and refitted to sell the medical marijuana products currently permissible in Florida – oil pens, CBC oil, low-THIC items and edibles. Smokeable cannabis will eventually join the mix, thanks to legislation heading to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ desk this week.
A young man in a charcoal T-shirt screened with the word “Harvest” in orange letters sits on a bar stool to greet visitors inside the entrance of the modular out back.
The entryway where he sits is small, with two doors only accessible through a staff member swipe card. There’s also a double-sided mirror, an ATM and pamphlets about legal cannabis on a side table.
“Are you a medical patient?” the man on the stool asks.
This purple pop-up trailer is the current location of Harvest, Osceola County’s only medical marijuana dispensary that opened Feb. 12.
If you’re not – meaning you haven’t already registered with the state and obtained a medical marijuana card from a place like Kissimmee-based Green Relief – this is where your visit ends.
