From Art Hanson, This That and Other Things – Medical Marijuana Dispensary
Eight months of planning, working, worrying, and waiting have finally came together for the opening of This That & Other Things II Medical Marijuana Dispensary in Newport at 320 SW Coast.
Art and Heidi Hanson first purchased the business in March of this year with the intent on bringing their agricultural and business backgrounds into this new venture. Art having a studied agri-business for five years at the University of Idaho and being in some facet of the cattle industry for the last sixteen years after college has a vast knowledge for lineage, breeding and genetics. Heidi grew up in a business setting, where her family owned a metal fabrication business. She brings an upbeat personality, great customer service and a great business mind to the shop.
Currently the store is still Buy-Sell-Trade in the lobby section and Dispensary in the office. The Dispensary has three to four different strains available along with concentrates and edibles, in the form of hard candy. They are also looking to expand their strain variety and have a plan in the works to start the cultivation of the world renowned Charlotte’s Wed Strain. This strain is low in THC (the chemical that gets you high), and high in Cannabinoids, which are the natural compounds that stop seizures and has other helpful properties.
If you have your OMMP Card or are a registered grower please stop in and see the product and possible discuss placing some of your product in the Dispensary for sale. The shop is also a stopping point for Analytical laboratories, out of Portland, that do the testing of product. All products sold through the dispensary are tested and come from registered growers.
Another Newport based medical marijuana dispensary has opened, this one on the Nye Beach Turnaround at 861 NW Beach Drive. They’re Nye Beach Holistic Health. There is another location that was intending to open on NW 15th, a block west of 101.
