David Melnick

Feel State


David is one of the Co-founders of Feel State, a dispensary brand focused on helping better connect individuals to themselves, each other, and their communities through the use of cannabis. As a small startup company, David is involved in all aspects of the business, but is primarily responsible for general corporate activities. He, along with another Feel State Co-founder, Corey Rimmel, started Hot Box Cookies while students at the University of Missouri (Mizzou). David has a bachelors and master’s degree in accountancy from Mizzou and holds a Certified Public Accountant license (inactive) in Missouri.


Feel State is a dispensary focused cannabis company whose goal is to make it easier to access the right cannabis products so we can better connect with what matters most in life. We are seeking to own and operate several medical cannabis dispensaries in Missouri, while simultaneously licensing the Feel State brand to other individually-owned dispensaries in Missouri and beyond. Feel State is building towards providing one consistent dispensary brand experience across three channels of retail distribution – brick and mortar, digital, and delivery. We want to be known as a trustworthy brand that stands for more than just “selling cannabis.”
