News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Aug. 10, 2018: The Caribbean has its first retail marijuana seed store.
EPICAN was recently opened by brothers Karibe and Dwayne McKenzie in the Marketplace on Constant Spring Road in Kingston, Jamaica according to the Jamaica Gleaner.
Dwayne McKenzie told the paper that the opening of the store will highlight the therapeutic properties of the cannabis plant and he is happy that Jamaicans will have a place to go to be educated about the plant, as well as to partake of all its by-products.
The company was granted a license to cultivate, process and retail medical grade marijuana by the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) in Jamaica.
On its website, the company says its “mission is to help establish an international standard in the emerging global cannabis industry; pioneering the mass production of safe and consistent cannabis-based products while building a sustainable and healthy industry that respects the environment, local economies and people’s health.”
