Southwest Missouri gained a new medical marijuana dispensary.
Thrive Branson West opened Sept. 10 at 18490 Business Highway 13, according to a news release.
The Branson West dispensary is operated by SW Retail Holdings LLC, according to records on file with the Missouri Secretary of State's office and Department of Health & Senior Services. It's the first of two dispensaries in Missouri planned by Thrive, though the release did not indicate where the other store would be located. The company operates four medical marijuana dispensaries in southern Illinois.
SW Retail Holdings was one of three companies awarded licenses in the Table Rock Lake area early last year by the DHS. Como Health LLC was issued a license for a dispensary in Branson West, and Grassroots OpCo MO LLC was given the green light for a store in Branson, according to past reporting.
SW Retail Holdings is organized by Stacey Adam, according to state records.
The Branson West store joins a Missouri medical marijuana market that has generated more than $113 million in tax revenue to date, according to the release.
A career pivot for a former human resources professional resulted in Bosky’s Vegan Grill; Neverending Game Store LLC made its second move in as many years; and Mercy Springfield Communities added a second Queen City clinic focused on sports rehabilitation and performance improvement.
