WICOMICO COUNTY, Md. - The Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission on Monday announced the top 15 growers and 15 processors who are in line to eventually be licensed, if they win final approval after background checks. Nearly half of them were selected to be both growers and processors.

The commission chose from a pool of 145 grower applicants and 124 processor applicants. The commission is expected to grant 94 dispensary licenses out of 811 applications later this year.

Here is the full list of grower and processor finalists:

GROWERS
-Curio Cultivation, Baltimore County
-Doctors Orders, Dorchester County
-Forward Gro, Anne Arundel County
-Freestate Wellness, Howard County
-Green Leaf Medical, Frederick County
-Grow West MD, Garrett County
-Harvest of Maryland, Washington County
-HMS Health, Frederick County
-Holistic Industries, Prince George's County
-Kind Therapeutics, Washington County
-Maryland Compassionate Care and Wellness, Carroll County
-MaryMed, Dorchester County
-Shore Natural Rx, Worcester County
-SunMed Growers, Cecil County
-Temescal Wellness, Baltimore City

PROCESSORS
-AFS Maryland, Wicomico County
-Blair Wellness Center, Worcester County
-Chesapeake Alternatives, Queen Anne's County
-Curio Cultivation, Baltimore County
-Doctors Orders, Dorchester County
-FGM Processing, Charles County
-Holistic Industries, Prince George's County
-Kind Therapeutics, Washington County
-Maryland Compassionate Care and Wellness, Carroll County
-MaryMed, Dorchester County
-Pharmaculture Corporation, Allegany County
-Pro Green Medical, Frederick County
-Rosebud Medical, Montgomery County
-Seven Points Argo-Therapeutics, Prince George's County
-Temescal Wellness, Baltimore City

In Wicomico County, there is one glaring omission from the list of potential growers.  CannaMed Pharmaceuticals was planning on opening a growing operation in Hebron just off of Route 50.  The company had secured the locations, began renovations on the property, and was getting ready to install growing equipment.  Company officials were confident the steps they were taking would put them in a great position to be chosen by the state's cannabis commission.

Medical cannabis is not expected to be available from Maryland dispensaries until next year.
