Our Story

Premium bud with purpose

Greetings From the Grow-Me State

Seeing is believing, and it doesn’t take 20/20 vision to appreciate the Vertical difference. We’re elevating cannabis by delivering premium, industry-leading products—sustainably cultivated and crafted right here in Missouri—to help you rise above.

Phase 1: Cultivation

Welcome to Vertical’s premier indoor cultivation facility, a 62,000 square foot building designed to house up to 30,000 square feet of flowering canopy in ideal growing conditions. Purpose-built from the ground up, with a keen eye for every detail, we employ superior, sustainable techniques to produce the highest quality cannabis with the lowest possible environmental impact. For example, we turned away from industry-standard high pressure sodium lamps—super-hot and energy-hungry—in favor of cutting edge LED lighting and other environmentally friendly equipment.

Phase 2: Manufacturing

We’re excited to bring best-in-class cartridges and high quality concentrates to Missouri. From wax to budder to diamonds to shatter, all are carefully crafted from our artisan flower, offering consumers the products they want, with the effects they need.

Phase 3: State-of-the-Art Dispensary

Located across the street from the East Hills Shopping Center in St. Joseph, our dispensary is among the most unique in Missouri. Upon arrival, you’ll be assisted by a personal consultant, a trained specialist who will listen carefully, answer your questions, and offer customized recommendations based on your individual needs. If you don’t have time to visit, feel free to peruse our menu and order online for express pickup.

Environmental Pledge

At Vertical, we’re committed to sustainable cannabis production. We use efficient LED lighting and advanced HVAC systems to reduce energy consumption. We produce no hazardous waste. We limit the use of plastics. We package our flower in recyclable aluminum containers. And we’re always looking for innovative ways to reduce our footprint and minimize our environmental impact.

Respect the plant, protect the planet.
