Compassion Centers in Delaware are vertically integrated cannabis businesses that handle cultivation, processing, and dispensing of medical cannabis to qualifying patients. These licensees own and operate the cultivation/growing facility and the dispensary; processing various cannabis extracts and edibles is done in-house at the dispensary or cultivation facilities.
Cultivation Facility – More commonly known as grow facilities, this is where the cannabis plant is grown from a seed to a mature plant to be harvested and processed into extracts or sold as plant material.
Processors – Processors take harvested cannabis from Cultivators and create derivative extracts for edibles, concentrates, topicals, and prepacks.
