A medicinal marijuana dispensary, Herbology, will open its doors in Dickinson this December, having received their certificate of occupancy from city officials on Monday, Nov. 25.

GrassRoots, the parent company of the forthcoming Herbology, completed a “two-tier process” of approval by the state and local government officials in Dickinson. There are three other Herbology locations in North Dakota: Jamestown, Minot and Devils Lake.

According to their application, the company will offer therapeutic cannabis products, including dried flower, extracted oils for vaporization, sublingual absorption and ingestion, tinctures, topicals and transdermal patches, as well as delivery systems for each.

According to the Health North Dakota government website, in total there are seven dispensaries across the state, with Dickinson's dispensary slated to be the eighth.

"People need to know where to go to purchase products," Jason Wahl, director of North Dakota Department Of Health's Division of Medical Marijuana, said.

In accordance with state regulations, products sold at Herbology will have a maximum THC concentration of no more than 6 percent.

Because North Dakota has only approved medical marijuana and not recreational usage, customer will need to have a medical marijuana card issued through the state first.

The process of obtaining a medicinal use card begins with an application at https://www.health.nd.gov/mm .

Applicants must be at least 19 years old to apply, with some exceptions. Application fees of $50 and support from a medical doctor must be completed prior to being approved for a card.

As of Nov. 18, there are almost 2,000 active patient cards issued to North Dakota residents, and the number is expected to grow over the coming years.

The location will be near Walmart at 320 24th St. E. and their proposed hours of operation are Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m; Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Currently, the location has a single banner outside the building to mark its presence.
