Third Grateful Meds Dispensary Finally Opens in Talent, Oregon

By Oregon Cannabis Connection

After nearly two years of delays, Talent Oregon’s third, and last, marijuana dispensary opened on January 30, 2016. After delays in construction, permitting, and licensing, they are finally open for business and providing customers with another option for quality cannabis in the Rogue Valley—Oregon’s premier growing region.

“We wanted to open months ago, but we had delays in our licensing from the Oregon Dispensary Program,” explained Brent Kenyon, the shop’s owner. Grateful Meds also has stores in Springfield and Portland.

The city of Talent is small, and they decided in 2013 to allow only three dispensaries in the town, one of them being Grateful Meds. The store is set between Talent Health Club and Green Valley Wellness, which have been open for many months, and were able to capitalize on early sales in Jackson County when only a few dispensaries were open locally. Grateful Meds missed out on much of the early rush.

“We are glad we can finally sell some medicine and begin to pay some of the bills that have racked up over the past year plus,” Kenyon explained. “We have great products and good prices. I am sure we will do very well, now that we are up and running.”

The store is one of three Greateful Meds locations currently open. They also have locations in Springfield at 1401 Market St, and Portland at 7050 North MLK Jr Blvd.  Their Southern Oregon location is open from 10:00am to 7:00pm, seven days a week. Visit them ay 630 S. Pacific Highway in Talent, Oregon. Their website is for more information.
