Company plans to make, sell cannabis oil in Manassas

Regulated medical cannabis oil could be arriving in Manassas as early as next year.

The Virginia Board of Pharmacy has issued conditional permits to five companies to produce and sell medical cannabis oil to people who have received a certificate from a doctor, including a company that plans to open a location in Manassas.

Dalitso LLC was one of the five companies issued a pharmaceutical processor permit on Sept. 25. The board is set to perform background checks to finalize the permits either this month or November. The board expects the facilities will open next year after board inspection.

The five companies were selected from 51 applications. The permits will allow companies to cultivate cannabis plants for production of medical cannabis oils  and sell to patients who have a certificate from a doctor, according to the board.
