Processors entering Arkansas medical marijuana market



Two Arkansas-based medical marijuana processors have been approved to create oils, edibles and other products to be sold at the state’s dispensaries, and another processor could win approval next month.

Shake Brands Corp. of Johnson received the state’s first processor license from the Medical Marijuana Commission last month, and Dark Horse Medicinals of Little Rock was awarded its license April 19. The two companies can now make products with marijuana plants grown by the state’s cultivators and dispensaries.
