Harvest Inc.’s Williston location opens as the third dispensary in North Dakota.
— Harvest Inc’s Williston location opens after two years and eight months of discussion with city officials. Harvest of Williston was named dispensary for the region in November and nearly faced a delay due to last-minute issues.
The grand opening was on Friday, July 12, with patients filling the store within hours. The store has heavily tinted windows to maintain client privacy, and Ben Taylor was on hand to help as the company’s new store opener.
“It’s been a hectic day, but we are really excited that we finally get to open the doors,” Taylor said.
Harvest Inc.’s Williston location is on 26th Street Easy and marks the third dispensary in the state. Medical marijuana cards have been handed out to 753 active patients in the state. Taylor claims that the low active patient card count allows the company to offer one-on-one service to patients.
Employees at the location are tasked with evaluating the patient’s needs and finding products that best work with their conditions. Harvest will work with patients and their doctors to better understand their conditions and offer treatment on a case-by-case basis that can best help the patients.
Employees undergo multiple training courses both at the location and offsite to ensure that the dispensary follows both corporate policy and North Dakota state law.
The dispensary allows anyone to enter the dispensary and look around, but a registry identification card is required to shop at the location. “I’m happy to see Harvest is opening in smaller communities and serving all markets, not just the ones that are flashy,” said Taylor.
Security personnel is present at the dispensary and is comprised of several former police officers. The dispensary currently employs ten local residents. The store is in the middle of finishing the interior and putting security measures in place, but it remains open to the public at this time.
