Two cannabis growers in Southern Illinois have commenced cultivation as the state’s medical cannabis program continues to gain patients. Ieso, LLC, which holds the license for District 13, operates a 23K s.f. facility at Southern Illinois Airport. Wellness Group Pharms, LLC (WGP), which holds the license for District 22, operates a 27K s.f. facility in Anna.
The state has currently authorized 15 growers as of October 30th. WGP holds an exclusive license in the state for the Charlotte’s Web strain, which is high in CBD and is used by many to treat childhood seizures, and it will grow seven others as well. The company is currently engaged in a dispute with a former consulting partner, AmeriCann, which claims it is owed over $1mm.
