Cannabis retailer arrives in the quad city with grand openings in
Council Bluffs and Davenport

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa & DAVENPORT, Iowa–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This weekend, Have
a Heart
celebrates the grand openings of its first stores in Iowa.
The company will bring its deep expertise in the medical cannabis
industry to the Council Bluffs and Davenport communities.

“We started as a medical dispensary many years ago, so our team
possesses a core expertise in this area,” said Ryan Kunkel, CEO of Have
a Heart. “Whether they’re living with chronic pain, multiple sclerosis,
or going through palliative cancer care, we’re proud to be able to
provide patients in the Council Bluffs and Davenport communities with
the best cannabis medicine, in a pleasant, non-intimidating environment.”

The Council Bluffs shop is located at 3615 9th avenue, next
to Omaha, NE (across the Missouri River). Davenport is located on 2222 E

Have a Heart’s chief operations officer, attended green-ribbon-cutting
ceremonies for both stores. They were joined by State Rep. Charlie
McConkey and Mayor Matt Walsh from Council Bluffs.

“Patients who have a qualifying illness will no longer have to drive
great distances to get their medicine,” said Council Bluffs’ Mayor Matt
Walsh. “Have a Heart has provided our community with a safe environment
where patients have access to a variety of medical cannabis products.”
