HUNTINGTON, W. Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This week, Cookies brings its first cannabis dispensary to beautiful West Virginia, advancing the international cannabis lifestyle brand’s long-held desire to serve patients with singular cannabis quality and warm hospitality in every U.S. state and country where cannabis is legal.

Cookies is partnering with retailer Country Grown Cannabis, which is highly regarded in the Mountain State for its commitment to medical care, to open the Cookies dispensary at 2689 5th Ave in Huntington on Saturday, Sept. 23.

West Virginia has experienced challenges with high rates of addiction and mortality related to the misuse of prescription pain relievers. Cookies is committed to supporting the community by leveraging the power of cannabis-based treatments for qualifying patients, with the hope of contributing positively to the broader health landscape in the state.
“West Virginians facing a range of medical conditions have been able to apply for medical cannabis licenses since 2017. Since then, as patients learn more about the advantages of medical cannabis, more and more residents of the Mountain State are gaining licenses and shopping for medicine at the state’s cannabis dispensaries,” said Brad Doyle, CEO of Harvest Care Medical. “Given Cookies’ international renown for providing extraordinary cannabis products and exceptional service, we are thrilled to offer West Virginia medical cannabis patients the same five-star Cookies experience that cannabis consumers across the country and around the world savor today.”
