A third commercial cannabis permit has been granted for the City of San Luis Obispo.

City leaders say they reviewed two permits recently and gave Natural Healing Center, LLC, the go-ahead to open a retail storefront business.

It will join Coastal Delivery SLO and Megan’s Organic Market SLO, which received operating permits last month.

Officials say they also reviewed a permit for Elemental Wellness, but it was not approved. SloCal Roots, LLC, will now proceed with a background screening.

“We appreciate the cooperation of all of the applicants as we have worked our way through the approval process,” said the City’s Economic Development Manager Charlene Rosales in a press release. “The standards we have in place were established through a collaborative process with the City and community. They’re designed to help ensure permitted cannabis businesses are set up for success in our city.”

Eleven businesses reportedly applied for commercial cannabis permits earlier this year.

Three contingent operator permits were issued at the end of March, including non-storefronts made up of one delivery service and one microbusiness.

The City says while only three storefronts are allowed under city law, there is no limit to the number of non-storefront businesses.
