TORONTO, Dec. 11, 2018 /CNW/ - Liberty Health Sciences Inc. (CSE: LHS) (OTCQX: LHSIF) www.libertyhealthsciences.com ("Liberty" or the "Company"), a provider of high quality cannabis, announced that the Company has opened its first south Florida dispensary today in the heart of Miami. The new dispensary provides customers in Miami-Dade County, the most populous county in Florida, access to premium quality medical marijuana products and educational services.
Located at 6827 Bird Road, Miami, FL., the state-of-the art dispensary is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Bird Road is one of the oldest and busiest state roads in Miami, with traffic exceeding 70,000 vehicles per day. It is a primary artery that feeds the main suburbs in Miami such as Coral Gables, West Miami, South Miami, Westchester, and Kendall. In addition to the Miami location, Liberty plans to open 3 more dispensaries this month with more to come in 2019, all subject to the receipt of Florida Department of Health approvals.
"Liberty remains committed to ensuring that its premium quality medical marijuana products and educational services are accessible to the more than 2.7 million people who call South Florida home," said George Scorsis, CEO of Liberty Health Sciences. "When people come to our dispensaries, they know they will find the highest quality medicinal cannabis. They also trust that they are going to have access to the best brands in any category, including PAX and Mary's Medicinals products.
"No other company has a brand-house and selection like ours. This demonstrates that not only do our partner brands trust and believe in us to deliver against their goals and objectives, but that consumers also have a diverse selection of the best products available," said George Scorsis, CEO of Liberty Health Sciences.
In order to keep up with the growing footprint of dispensaries and patient demand, Liberty is expanding the Company's production capacity of the Liberty 360 facility in Gainesville, Florida, expected to be completed in stages in 2019. The Liberty 360 operation currently has 20,000 square feet of cultivation space on-line at the facility and the next phase of 80,000 square feet is expected to be completed by February 2019.
