Enlightened’s mission is to create a comforting and inclusive environment for all cannabis users. The brand seeks to make cannabis products more accessible to patients, regardless of their experience with the plant, conveyed in its motto “Come as You Are.” The dispensaries will emphasize the importance of cannabis education, with employees trained to speak about different strains and products to best fit the needs of patients.

“We are excited to serve the highest-quality medical cannabis to patients in an inviting environment with knowledge and professionalism,” said Enlightened dispensary owners Lee Hatcher, Dr. Dewayne Goldmon, and Dr. Regina Thurman in a joint statement.

Pure Health Products, LLC (PHP) has been retained to manage the Arkansas locations’ daily operations. Dusty Shroyer, who is heading the managed services team, said, “We are looking forward to welcoming Arkansas patients, giving them access to high-quality cannabis supplied by a team that cares about meeting each of their needs.” Shroyer is also the COO of Revolution Global, a multi-state cannabis business, which also operates in Illinois, Florida, and Maryland and owns PHP via one of its subsidiaries.
