Local company BeLeaf Medical brings medical cannabis to Missouri
A St. Louis based medical marijuana company is the first in the state to begin operations today. BeLeaf Medical’s Sinse cultivation facility in St. Louis County is the first grow operation given the okay to operate by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services after passing all required inspections. BeLeaf Medical has been awarded 3 cultivation licenses, 2 manufacturing licenses and 5 dispensary licenses all in the greater St. Louis area.
“We are privileged to be the first to bring this medicine to the people of Missouri” said Kevin Riggs, BeLeaf Medical President. After winning the licenses in late December and January, BeLeaf has been finalizing the first phase of the cultivation operation with the intent of being operational as soon as possible. The cultivation operation will work under the brand name of Sinse. Sinse is shorthand for Sinsemilla (meaning without seed) or the highly potent flower of the cannabis plant.”
The Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) has created a process to bring all the licensed entities onboard in accordance with licensing requirements established by the State of Missouri. “While achieving licenses to bring the long awaited medicine to Missourians was the initial and difficult first step for Sinse, finally receiving commencement after rigorous review and inspection of our operations along with the expertise and capabilities from DHSS, was equally gratifying and a testament to the commitment of the BeLeaf/Sinse Team of Associates” said Riggs.
“We are thrilled to begin growing the strains that we know will bring meaningful relief to the medical patients in the state” commented John Curtis, BeLeaf Medical COO. “We plan to have wholesale product for sale in Missouri by 4th quarter this year” Curtis said. Sinse plans to sell bulk and packaged flower to dispensaries. It will also sell pre-packaged flowers in 1/4 and 1/8th jars as well as pre-rolls.
