Good Day Farm, a leading cannabis company in the South, made history today when its flower was sold to an Oxford, Mississippi medical patient. The cannabis flower, cultivated at Good Day Farm’s 130,000 square-foot facility, became the first legal medical cannabis purchase in the state almost one year after the Mississippi Medical Cannabis Act was signed into law.
Good Day Farm is elated to make our premium cannabis flower the first product available to patients in Mississippi.
“As a proud Ole Miss alumnus, I’m elated to make our premium cannabis flower the first product available to patients in Mississippi,” said Ryan Herget, head of Good Day Farm Retail Management. “As one of largest cannabis companies in the South, it’s a privilege to serve thousands of waiting patients across Mississippi with truly good products grown and sold by good people. With six convenient dispensary locations spanning from the Tennessee border to the Gulf Coast, we stand ready and eager to serve.”
Mississippi is the fourth state for Little-Rock based Good Day Farm, a leading cannabis company in the South with operations in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Missouri. The brand’s signature portfolio of flower strains are available for sale today, to be followed by Good Day Farm’s full assortment of edibles, vapes and tinctures — including its award-winning THC gummies and patient-favorite rechargeable Go Pen vaporizer.
Beginning Friday, the company will open the first of six Good Day Farm-branded dispensaries, first in Hattiesburg to be followed by Biloxi, Brookhaven, Corinth, Laurel and Tupelo. Good Day Farm Mississippi locations will be open to card-holding medical patients Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sunday from noon until 6 p.m.
To mark this milestone moment, the Good Day Farm-branded dispensary in Hattiesburg will hold a Grand Opening celebration this Friday, January 27. The event will take place at Good Day Farm Hattiesburg, located at 6083 US-98, and will include a 9:30 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by a 10 a.m. store opening including branded merchandise giveaways while supplies last.
Now that legal medical sales are underway Good Day Farm expects to scale its Mississippi operations quickly, with plans to double its cultivation and production footprint in the coming year. The Company is also committed to giving back to the communities it serves, most recently donating 840 cases of drinking water to assist disaster relief efforts in Jackson.
Said Zach Wilson, head of Mississippi Operations, “Our team has worked tirelessly to prepare for this milestone moment, and we’re proud to bring Good Day Farm to market as the first brand available to Mississippi patients. From cannabis advocacy and education to jobs and charitable giving, we look forward to demonstrating our long-term commitment to Mississippi in the months and years to come.”
