Show-Me Organics acquires grow and manufacturing facility from Holistic Industries


Missouri’s Top Selling Brand of Cannabis Concentrates – Vivid – Moves Into Flower With State-of-the-Art Grow and Manufacturing Facility

Show-Me Organics – a Missouri-based cannabis company and operator of Vivid, Missouri’s Own, Buoyant Bob, and Blue Sage – announced it will purchase the 80,000-square-foot cannabis growing and manufacturing facility in Kansas City from Holistic Industries, one of the nation’s largest, private multi-state operators in the cannabis industry. Terms of the deal were signed by both parties Oct. 3, and will close upon approval by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. No other details of the transaction were disclosed.

The facility is currently operational and produces more than 1,000 pounds of high quality flower per month for dispensaries throughout Missouri. Holistic Industries recently entered the Missouri market under the Strane brand, and sells in about 30 dispensaries statewide. Show-Me Organics will acquire the genetics and flower currently being produced, along with rigorous standard-operating procedures that consistently produces cannabis at THC levels between 25-33%. Included in the genetics are highly sought after strains like Florida Kush, which will now be sold by Vivid.

“We believe we are acquiring the best designed grow facility in the state, and we tip our caps to Holistic Industries perfecting the design and process through build outs in nine other states,” said Boston Dickerson co-founder and CEO of Show-Me Organics. “This is a one of a kind opportunity, from the staff, to the facility, to the genetics.”

Josh Genderson, Founder and CEO of Holistic Industries added, “Quality tends to find quality, particularly in the cannabis industry. We are proud to pass on what our team built to what is likely to be among the top players in Missouri.”

The acquisition of the grow and manufacturing operations makes Show-Me Organics a vertical player, adding to its portfolio of two dispensaries, manufacturing, and transportation services. The company plans to take on approximately 60 employees at its newly acquired manufacturing plant, while continuing to operate its laboratory in Springfield, Missouri.


Founded in 2019, Show-Me Organics is a locally owned and operated cannabis company built from a history of serving Missouri patients through family owned pharmacies for more than 30 years. The company operates several popular brands including Blue Sage dispensaries, Buoyant Bob, Missouri’s Own and Vivid which are collectively sold in 95% of Missouri dispensaries.


Missouri’s Own is a brand of edibles from Vivid that launched in March. The brand celebrates Missouri’s vast botanical diversity with flavors inspired by locally cultivated fruits, such as Pawpaw, Raspberry, Concord Grape and more. The gourmet gummies are vegan and made with all natural ingredients, and features branding inspired by Missouri’s rolling hills.


Vivid’s expert extraction team applies the precision of modern science to optimize traditional hash making techniques, bringing products to Missouri that are on the forefront of cannabis innovation globally. Vivid’s wide range of products derives from the brand’s focus on different cannabis users and is built on understanding cannabis affects everyone differently. Learn more at
