New medical marijuana product announced

The Maui News – Medical marijuana dispensary Maui Grown Therapies is releasing “Kona Gold,” described as the “first in a series of rare cannabis varietals.”

The company said it plans to begin sales of the product today to registered medical marijuana patients.

The new product “provides a much clearer, uplifting experience than most cannabis products currently available,” said Dr. Andrew Weil, the company’s chief science officer. “This variety has always been prized for its mood elevation, focus, insight and analgesic potential and will appeal to patients seeking pain relief with less sedation.”

Kona Gold stems from tropical varieties of narrow-leafleted cannabis plants brought to Hawaii in the 1960s from southern India, Thailand, Cambodia, Columbia and Mexico. Maui Grown Therapies cultivates its cannabis plants at its 7-acre Upcountry production site.
