Georgia Licenses Pharmacies to Sell Low-THC Cannabis Oil

Georgia has become the first state in the nation to license pharmacies to sell low-THC cannabis oil to eligible patients.

The state Department of Community Health announced the Georgia Board of Pharmacy has approved the sale of cannabis oil at independent pharmacies in Warner Robins, Tifton, and Omega, a small city that straddles Tift and Colquitt counties.

Two manufacturing companies licensed by the state to produce and sell low-THC cannabis oil opened dispensaries last spring to sell their products to Georgians suffering from a range of diseases and enrolled in a state-run patient registry.

Georgia has almost 1,000 ‘independent pharmacies’ eligible to apply for a license.
