A cannabis dispensary has opened in Las Cruces at 1405 S. Valley Drive. It’s in the same shopping center with Village Inn restaurant, near the intersection of Valley and Avenida de Mesilla.
Green Goods opened Aug. 18. The company is a subsidiary of Goodness Growth Holdings, Inc., which defines itself as “a physician-led, science-focused cannabis company and IP (intellectual property) incubator.”
The Las Cruces location is a 2,490-square foot storefront, Green Goods said in a news release, making it Goodness Growth’s largest retail space in New Mexico. Green Goods also opened a new 1,995-square foot dispensary in Albuquerque. The two businesses could generate a combined 30 jobs, the news release said.
The new dispensaries will offer a wide variety of Vireo Health products and items from other cannabis growers in New Mexico growers, including cannabis flower, concentrates, pre-rolls, edibles, tinctures and topicals, the release said.
The City of Las Cruces does not yet have a specific designation for cannabis businesses, but this likely is the first or among the first to be licensed in Las Cruces.
The Las Cruces dispensary is opened 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and
