Fine Fettle Brings Medical Marijuana Production to Macon

Georgia's medical marijuana landscape is evolving, with significant developments marking a new era of treatment options for patients. Although Georgia is not classified as a traditional "medical marijuana" state, it permits the use of medical marijuana products containing up to 5% THC. 

A major milestone in this journey is the opening of Fine Fettle's new production facility in Macon. This article explores the significance of Fine Fettle's facility, the benefits of medical marijuana, and why obtaining a medical marijuana card is essential for patients in Georgia.

A New Beginning

Fine Fettle, one of Georgia’s licensed medical marijuana providers, has recently inaugurated its new facility at 700 Joe Tamplin Industrial Blvd. This facility represents a beacon of hope for many Georgians suffering from chronic pain and other debilitating conditions.

Retired Sergeant Gary Herber, a veteran of the United States Army, highlighted the importance of this new facility. Having served in the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan, Sergeant Herber experienced chronic pain and neurological issues due to combat injuries. 

He emphasized that the veteran community now has access to alternative treatment options that can significantly improve their quality of life. "To the veteran community, if you’re out there and you’re hurting, there are options. There are more and more options becoming available on a daily basis and never lose hope," said Sergeant Herber.

Fine Fettle's facility is equipped to produce a variety of medical marijuana products, including soft chews, pressed pills, topicals, and patches. The company plans to expand its product offerings to meet the diverse needs of patients. Benjamin Zachs, CEO of Fine Fettle, expressed his commitment to providing safe and effective medication to patients. "To bring relief, to bring a natural medicine to stop the pill cycle. 

All of these elements together are really, really important and we’ve seen from across the country, and we’ve already seen at the beginning of Georgia’s program that this medication really makes a difference in people’s lives. And that’s what it’s about," said Zachs.

The grand opening of the Fine Fettle facility was attended by state and local leaders, including Macon-Bibb Mayor Lester Miller. Mayor Miller praised the facility's role in providing medicinal relief to the community, especially for veterans and individuals with specific medical needs. 

Additionally, the facility is expected to create approximately 200 jobs in Macon over the next two years, boosting the local economy. Fine Fettle also plans to open several dispensaries across Georgia, with one on Riverside Drive in Macon set to open by early 2025.

The Importance of Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana offers numerous benefits for patients with various conditions. It has been shown to effectively manage chronic pain, reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate symptoms related to neurological disorders, and improve the quality of life for patients with severe illnesses. Here are some of the key reasons why medical marijuana is a beneficial treatment option:

One of the most significant advantages of medical marijuana is its ability to provide natural pain relief. Unlike opioids and other prescription painkillers, marijuana products offer pain relief without the high risk of addiction. This is particularly important for chronic pain sufferers who need long-term solutions.

Patients with neurological disorders, such as epilepsy and multiple sclerosis, have found relief through medical marijuana. The anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties of marijuana can help reduce the frequency and severity of seizures and other neurological symptoms.

For many patients, medical marijuana significantly enhances their quality of life. It provides a holistic approach to managing symptoms, enabling patients to lead more comfortable and fulfilling lives.

Why You Need a Medical Marijuana Card

Having a medical marijuana card ensures that patients have access to regulated, safe, and high-quality marijuana products. These products are tested for potency and purity, providing patients with reliable and effective treatment options.

Obtaining a medical marijuana card involves consultation with a healthcare provider who can guide patients on the appropriate use of marijuana for their specific condition. This medical supervision ensures that patients use marijuana safely and effectively.


The opening of Fine Fettle's new facility in Macon marks a significant step forward for Georgia's medical marijuana program. This facility not only provides essential treatment options for patients but also boosts the local economy by creating jobs. 

Despite the challenges and limitations of Georgia's medical marijuana laws, the benefits of medical marijuana for chronic pain, mental health, and neurological conditions are undeniable. Obtaining a medical marijuana card is a crucial step for patients seeking legal and effective treatment. As Georgia continues to develop its medical marijuana infrastructure, the hope is that more patients will have access to the relief they need.
