Star Buds announces dispensary cancer relief program  


Star Buds Dispensary is looking forward to providing Missouri cancer patients with affordable relief through the Star Buds Dispensary cancer relief program. Under the Star  Buds Dispensary Cancer Relief Program, qualifying cancer patients may purchase one gram of eligible RSO or FECO oil each month for one dollar to help offset the cost of this potentially life-saving medicine.

“Hash oil has long been used to treat a variety of ailments, including asthma, multiple sclerosis, anxiety, depression, inflammation and a variety of other conditions,” says  Chris Chesley, long time advocate for medical marijuana in Missouri and a founding member of the Star Buds Dispensary team, “Rick Simpson oil is a THC heavy marijuana oil that has shown promise in mitigating the symptoms of cancer, with some indications that it may even reverse the growth of certain tumors. More research is required, but this is an extremely exciting part of the industry and one we are watching with a lot of hope. Star Buds Dispensary is proud to offer a program to help Missouri cancer patients. We will begin the rollout of our program and post terms and eligibility  requirements, as soon as product availability allows, and will look to enhance all of our  patient support programs as we go forward.”



Occidental Group was formed by Missouri residents shortly after the passage of  Amendment 2 in 2018. Our founders have strong roots in advocacy for safe and legal medical marijuana. Occidental Group partnered with Star Buds, a well-known Colorado-based dispensary brand to form Star Buds Dispensary, a medical marijuana dispensary operation focused on offering Missouri patients a superior experience in selecting,  purchasing, and using medical marijuana products.
