Growing medical cannabis First tour of its kind gives inside look into highly regulated Maui Grown Therapies production site in Kula

KULA — The Upcountry site where cannabis is cultivated and manufactured for Maui Grown Therapies, Hawaii’s first licensed dispensary, is part James Bond and part Albert Einstein.

It is a far cry from growing marijuana in the cane fields or in secret greenhouses under grow lights.

Christopher Cole, director of product development, this week took the media for the first time through Maui Grown Therapies’ cloning, vegetation, extraction and manufacturing rooms — each pristine, organized and cataloged to meet biosecurity and legal standards. Up until about six months ago, media were not allowed in such Hawaii facilities, said Teri Freitas Gorman, Maui Grown Therapies director of community relations and patient affairs.
