Africa’s First Medical Marijuana Dispensary Is About To Open In Durban

The home of the Durban Poison cannabis strain is about to be the birthplace of Africa’s first medical cannabis dispensary.

Africa’s first medical marijuana dispensary will open on June 1st in the continent’s most well-known cannabis city, Durban South Africa. The dispensary, known as Holistic Relief Wellness and Pain Management Centre will sell CBD based products prescribed to patients by in-house medical experts.

According to a report by Al Jazeera, patients at Holistic Relief Wellness will first consult with a traditional healer, but the owner also hopes to have an in-house doctor and chiropractor to provide patients with a full range of medical services.

Africa’s first medical marijuana dispensary will be run by Kirithi Thaver, a local activist who has been pushing the government to legalize cannabis since a landmark Superior Court ruling declared the ban of personal possession unconstitutional in March.
