Blue Sage opens first dispensary in Lebanon
Blue Sage Cannabis announced yesterday that they will open for business at their Lebanon, Missouri dispensary on Friday, January 22. Lebanon will be the first of two locations to open under the Blue Sage brand and Friday’s grand opening will no doubt be well attended by Missouri medical marijuana patients in the region.
CEO and co-owner LeAnne Dickerson, an independent pharmacist, has extensive experience with patients, which she hopes will translate in the medical marijuana space. With over 80+ years combined experience in the medical field, the team at Blue Sage will bring best practices to the Missouri cannabis industry.
Blue Sage’s dispensary staff was trained by the Cannabis Care Team, clinicians who have been providing dispensary training for employees in multiple dispensary locations in Missouri and Oklahoma. CCT’s training incorporates the importance of not providing medical advice to patients, but instead how to best serve patients with education about the plant’s anatomy and potential therapeutic benefits.
“We are a family operated business and we are committed to providing a patient-focused experience, as we’ve done in independent pharmacies in the past,” said Dickerson. “Our employees are local and we’re a part of this community in every sense.”
Patients can visit Blue Sage in Lebanon at 1210 Deadra Drive, Lebanon MO 65536 beginning on Friday at 10 am. Hours for the Lebanon location will be Monday – Saturday from 10 am to 7 pm and on Sundays between 12 pm and 5 pm.
“For our opening, we’ll only have flower, but will add additional products to our lineup,” said Dickerson. Cannabis flower from cultivators C4 and Solhaus will be available in person or for online ordering and pickup and strains will be visible at their website before Friday’s opening.
Blue Sage Cannabis plans to offer more product types in the weeks to come and as the year progresses, and their Carthage location will be open for business soon.
