On January 9, 2019, the Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission unanimously approved the scores for the state’s 203 dispensary applications, naming Bloom Medicinals of AR, LLC as one of the thirty-two to earn a license to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in the State of Arkansas.
Bloom Medicinals, with affiliate operating companies Midwest Compassion Center in Romeoville, Illinois; Bloom Medicinals of Maryland in Germantown; and Bloom Medicinals of Ohio with dispensaries in Akron, Columbus, Maumee, Painesville Township and the Village of Seven Mile, offers high quality medical cannabis and cannabis products from state-licensed growers, cultivators and processing centers. From its earliest beginnings in 2014, Bloom Medicinals and Midwest Compassion Centers have been recognized as industry leaders, organizing community events, holding educational symposia, and offering its team to speak at nationally recognized conferences for physicians, clinicians, patients and industry leaders.
“We are looking forward to serving the residents of Arkansas and sharing our expertise,” said Nicole van Rensburg, CEO. “We know a lot of patients have been waiting a very long time for the Arkansas program to launch, and we are honored the State has chosen us.”
Bloom Medicinals is a family company started by sister and brother Nicole van Rensburg and William Hollander. For more than three decades the Hollander Family has sought innovative ways to help people dealing with serious medical issues. Their businesses have grown to serving nearly a thousand physicians in multiple states with a fleet of mobile MRI and neurological testing units, and continues today as American Imaging headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida.
With patient choice in mind, the medical cannabis industry was a natural fit for the Hollanders. “When we first began speaking with patients, I was taken aback at just how sick many of these folks really are,” said William Hollander. “For many, medical marijuana is their last hope to experience relief, as traditional medicines have failed.”
Bloom Medicinals will be located in Miller County in the city of Texarkana at the southwestern-most part of the state. “While we certainly have our work cut out for us, we intend to be operational by the end of the second quarter of 2019 and have already begun our preparations,” said van Rensburg.
