When Oklahoma flung open the doors to its medical cannabis industry, Denise Mink thought it would be a good opportunity to “semi-retire” by opening a dispensary with her husband. But things didn’t go quite as planned. In this episode, Denise reveals to MJBiz CEO Chris Walsh some of the lessons she learned while trying to get Med Pharm off the ground.

Denise shares:

  • How her lack of experience led to costly inventory mistakes.
  • How she and her husband dealt with pushback from the community, including from the local police force.
  • Which marketing vehicles have proven to be the best investment for Med Pharm.

Who is Denise Mink?

Denise Mink was the most successful agent at the real estate company where she was employed, but she was also super stressed and ready for a change. So when Oklahoma launched its MMJ market, she jumped – even though she had no experience in the industry other than visiting a few dispensaries in Colorado. But a willingness to surround oneself with cannabis veterans plus her persistence and business savvy helped make Med Pharm, located outside Tulsa, a success.
