Untamed Herbs began selling recreational marijuana in late January. It closed its doors Sunday, March 7. A spokesperson said they hope to reopen in three months.

Giving patients just a few day’s notice, Untamed Herbs, Payson’s medical and recreational marijuana dispensary, closed Sunday.

Dispensary officials said it is just a temporary closure and that they hope to reopen the dispensary, at 200 N. Tonto St., in three months.

In a press release, officials said it was part of an expansion program.

The owners reportedly moved their current license to another location. In Arizona, once a dispensary owner holds a license, they can move it to another location in the state, but that means they have to close their existing facility.

A spokesperson said they are waiting on a new license for the Tonto location.

“In the meantime, the dispensary has established a partnership with a new medical marijuana order service that will allow customers to order products and pick them up curbside at 200 N. Tonto Street in Payson. At this time, only Arizona medical marijuana patients will be allowed to order products.”

Andrew Provencio, CEO of Untamed Herbs, said he is pleased that the company will still be able to serve medical marijuana patients during this transition.

“Many things have changed these past few months, including COVID restrictions and complications inherent in the Arizona cannabis licensing process,” he said. “But one thing that remains constant is our commitment to providing the highest quality products and services to the Payson community. Through this transition, we are happy that our medical patients can still obtain the products they need, conveniently through the new curbside service.”

Untamed Herbs is owned by Desert Medical Campus, Inc., which also manufactures cannabis wholesale products. Production will reportedly continue at the Payson location, with a planned expansion of manufacturing capabilities beginning by spring on an adjoining parcel of land, which the organization recently purchased.

Curbside service for medical patients began Monday, March 8.

Medical cannabis patients can order products and pick them up at 200 N. Tonto St. by calling 928-474-2420.

The info reported by The CEO of untamed is false, untamed herbs never re opened for curb side service for their medical patients.. they stated that the transmission would not effect medical patients. There is now no dispensary in gila county which has left many patients without a way to get their medicine unless the drive to the valley or another county. I know many patients that are wheelchair bound, dont have a vehicle or the gas money to travel to another county to get their medicine. It's sad that they only gave patients a 2 day notice and the lied about being reopened on the 8th for curbside but when you try and order They are not open when you try to order it said sorry online ordering temporarily closed due hofh volume and now it says closed till further notice. It is so unfair that they left so many patients without a way to get their meds and even worse giving local medical card patients false info and saying medical patients would not go without a way to get their medicine. I hope someone will call them.out or better yet a whole new dispensary comes here who treat their patients with respect and not blatantly lie to all of them.
