US (MD): 26 acre medical cannabis farm and research center under construction

A dispensary owner and medical cannabis grower plans to take the Southern Maryland region back to its agricultural roots with a blooming industry.

Charlie Mattingly, the owner of Southern Maryland Relief, a dispensary located in Mechanicsville, has been working over the past several years to create an innovative industrial complex in St. Mary’s County. The plans consist of constructing thousands of square feet of greenhouses, farmable space, and a research center to bolster one of the most highly anticipated industries nationwide.

With all permits approved and proper prerequisites met, Mattingly has begun construction of what he says is over a $10 million project being built on his property in Seventh District.

A review of building permits and recent construction on the property shows a 52,580-square-foot building under construction at the roughly 26-acre parcel found in the 21000 block of Abell Road. The property is home to several businesses, including at least: Seven Points Agro Therapeutics (dba Prime Extracts), Story Cannabis Co, and Abell Agro.
