Cannabis processor Dark Horse Medicinals puts its own products on the shelves October 14, 2022 By Griffin Coop Cultivators and dispensaries aren’t the only ones putting their own cannabis products into the Arkansas market. Dark Horse Medicinals, one of five cannabis processors in the state, has produced vape cartridges, gummies, chocolates and other products that began appearing on dispensary shelves in March under the Dark Horse brand, according to Casey Flippo who owns the largest stake in the company. As a processor, Dark Horse does not grow its own plants — only cultivators and dispensaries can do that under Arkansas law. Instead, Dark Horse buys material, either flower or distillate, from those cultivators and dispensaries and makes its own products. Dark Horse also does “white labeling” in which it takes material from cultivators or dispensaries and processes it into consumable products that are sold under other brand names. Dark Horse, which has expanded from 3,000 square-feet to 10,000 square-feet at its Little Rock facility, produces a wide range of products. Dark Horse products include vape cartridges made from strains such as Maui Wowie, Jack Herer, OG Kush, Mango Kush, Wedding Cake and Blueberry Headband. Dark Horse also makes gummies including Slurricane, Hawaiian Haze and Unicorn Pee and concentrates. The company has a couple of flavors of chocolate bars and is working on others, according to company general manager Jeremy Davis. The other processors in the state are Pure Pharma, Mink and Kimball, Shake Extractions and New Day, according to Scott Hardin, spokesman for the state Medical Marijuana Commission.
