BALTIMORE, Aug. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In an announcement made today by the Natalie M. LaPrade Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission, Curio Cultivation and Curio Manufacturing were awarded stage one license pre-approvals for growing and processing medical cannabis, respectively. The parent company, Curio Wellness, is among the fifteen companies selected by the Commission to bring medical cannabis to qualifying Maryland patients through a safe and effective system.
Michael Bronfein, who pioneered "Paxit", the robotic drug distribution system that's revolutionizing chronic medication management, serves as CEO. Bronfein, along with his team including a prestigious scientific advisory board, will bring an unparalleled commitment to quality and professionalism as Maryland enters into the medical cannabis business. Curio Wellness will offer superior patient care at the core of everything they do.
"Throughout my career in healthcare, we've always looked for ways to innovate and operate on the forefront of the industry," said Bronfein. "As we've researched the benefits of medical cannabis and consulted with world class scientists and physicians on the topic, we are certain that many Marylanders will benefit from the medicinal usage of cannabis. And it is our core mission at Curio Wellness to establish the benchmark as a professional medical cannabis provider and educational resource for patients."
Bronfein and team quickly saw the opportunities in the emerging medical cannabis business and took steps early on toward obtaining these license pre-approvals and building the infrastructure necessary to launch a successful company and brand.
"We've been working toward this moment for the past two years and are honored to be selected from among 146 grower applicants and 124 processor applicants. We take this business very seriously and we intend to build a company focused on leading the pursuit of wellness," said Wendy Bronfein, Marketing Director. "We're also excited to announce that we've entered into an exclusive partnership with Dixie Elixirs & Edibles to produce their notable cannabis-infused products here in Maryland."
