FIDDLER’S GREEN: In Mountain View and soon to open.

The state Alcohol Beverage Control Division, which regulates medical marijuana in Arkansas, has approved Fiddler’s Green, a Mountain View dispensary, to open. CEO Lisa Murphy said she hoped to be open by the weekend, but it depended on how quickly she could package the medical marijuana. The dispensary is located at 16150 Highway 9 in Mountain View.

Rebekah Hall interviewed Murphy for the Times in February:

She said then that she anticipated deliveries being a big part of the business.

“I think [because of] the fact that we will be able to deliver anywhere in the state with the touch of a button, folks won’t be concerned about where we’re located,” she said.

After patients enter the dispensary’s front office, they’ll be required to present ID before they’re allowed access to the rest of the facility, which Murphy said will be a “clinic setting with a nice, relaxing atmosphere.” It will feature a “bud bar” where patients can view and learn about different flower strains.

Fiddler’s Green will grow its own limited amount of marijuana on-site. Murphy said Fiddler’s Green plans to offer name brand strains as well as proprietary strains grown in-house. The dispensary will also offer CBD products and different lotions, creams, tinctures and edibles for patients who don’t want to ingest by smoking.

This is the sixth dispensary to receive this approval. Others in operation are Doctor’s Orders (Hot Springs), Green Springs Medical (Hot Springs), Arkansas Natural Products (Clinton), Greenlight Dispensary (Helena-West Helena) and Native Green Wellness (Hensley).
