This is an abbreviation for cooperative referring to a non-profit corporate entity where those who deal with medical cannabis can come together to grow, share, receive or supply the product to those who do not grow or have their own. The earnings and savings of the business must be used for the general welfare of its members. A Co-op has specific membership requirements that vary by state and exclusively sells marijuana to its registered members. In some states, co-ops are an alternative to dispensaries.
