The cannabis industry has been booming remarkably over the past few years. Kaya Herb House is positioning itself to capitalise on this growth with the recent opening of its third dispensary in Jamaica.
Kaya’s cannabis resort is centrally located in the country’s capital.
The medicinal outlet had its official ribbon opening ceremony on Thursday, December 19, 2019, at 82 Lady Musgrave Road witnessed by its Board of Directors and Minister of State in the Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Agriculture, Floyd Green who welcomed the game-changing move by the company.
Kaya is the first medical cannabis brand from the Caribbean to establish its first legal marijuana dispensary that offers a variety of high-quality services and products both locally and regionally.
“Herb has been a part of our life and how we can make it an extension of what we are doing.”
Balram Vaswani, Chairman and Chief Ganja Officer of Kaya, noted that the strategic choice to locate its third dispensary in the heart of Kingston was primarily owed to its neighbouring entities.
“We are trying to get medical marijuana to patrons, locally and internationally. Herb has been a part of our life and how we can make it an extension of what we are doing. Being in the golden triangle, we are connected to Devon House, Bob Marley Museum, AC Hotel which makes it very accessible as more of a hangout spot in a central location,” he shared with BUZZ.
The Chief Ganja Officer added that he recognises Kingston as a quintessential tourist hotspot, with the ability to reap huge rewards through the cannabis and tourism industries.
“This is Kingston, this [Kaya] location is a concentration entertainment complex that mixes medical with non-medicinal that allows us to have a balance of both,” he added.
Positioning marijuana as an indispensable tool for socio-economic growth, Kaya Herb House is a uniquely fashioned cannabis entity focused on wellness and a burst of Jamaica’s rich culture.
The compartmentalized facility is the perfect pit stop for freshly made authentic Italian pizzas. The unit also features a herb shop and a smoking room.
The newly installed facility is also home to a rich art gallery that embodies Jamaica’s monumental figures.

Just last year, March 2018, Kaya became the first legal cannabis entity of its kind to launch operations in Jamaica, which kicked off in Drax Hall, St. Ann followed by its second opening in Falmouth.
