State approves seventh Maui medical Cannabis retail dispensary

Pono Life Maui received the green light from the state Department of Health to open its fourth medical cannabis retail dispensary.

DOH issued a formal notice to proceed after the facility passed its final on-site inspection. The new retail site, located at 95 E Lipoa Street in Kihei, wasted no time, beginning sales on Tuesday.

“Maui Pono Life Science’s new dispensary will provide much-needed access to patients on Maui,” said Liam Gimon, Dispensary Licensing Section supervisor. 

The new facility is Maui’s seventh retail dispensary and the 24th retail dispensary for the state. As of September 30, 2023, a total of 32,693 in-state patients and 2,817 caregivers were registered statewide, including 5,606 patients and 521 caregivers on Maui.

According to DOH, the primary reported condition for registered adult patients is severe pain. The primary reported conditions for patients under 18 are seizures and post-traumatic stress disorder.
