BROOKVILLE — Jefferson County’s first medical marijuana dispensary has opened in Brookville.
A Wednesday ribbon cutting ceremony marked the opening of the Herbology facility at 240 West Main Street in Brookville, below the Medicine Shoppe.
The new firm’s hours of operation will be 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sunday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Individuals must have a medical marijuana card to enter the dispensary.
According to Ian Gibbs, the Community Marketing Manager for Herbology, Pennsylvania is one of the easiest states in which to apply for a medical marijuana card.
“The process is really simple, you go to the medicalmarijuana.pa.gov to find out the process, or you can call our store and we can explain the process,” Gibbs said.
If an individual does not have a medical marijuana card, and needs help applying, the workers at the dispensary will assist in the process. They will come outside to talk with individuals and explain where the proper forms and paperwork can be found. They can also be reached by calling 814-817-6658.
“Pretty much every cultivator there is, we have them here, so the patients have access to any version or type of medicine that they require,” Gibbs said.
The main supplier of the dispensary is Grassroots, which is the parent company of Herbology. Grass Roots supplies all 59 dispensaries across Pennsylvania, nine of which are Herbologies.
