- Company approved to expand Liberty 360 Innovation Campus cultivation space in Gainesville to 228,880 square feet
TORONTO, April 3, 2019 /CNW/ - Liberty Health Sciences Inc. (CSE: LHS) (OTCQX: LHSIF) www.libertyhealthsciences.com ("Liberty" or the "Company"), a provider of high quality cannabis, announced today that it will open its 13th Florida dispensary in Bonita Springs on April 5th, as the company continues to expand rapidly throughout the state. On April 1st the Company also received approval form the Florida Department of Health (DOH) for an additional use of 80,000 square feet of enclosed greenhouse space at the Liberty 360 Innovation campus in Gainesville. This brings the Company to a total of 228,880 square feet of cultivation space in the Gainesville area.
This comes on the heels of the Company receiving approval last week to become one of the first companies to provide pre-roll and whole flower smokable products to patients as a result of Governor Ron DeSantis signing a bill (SB 182) into law revoking a ban on smokable medical marijuana.
Located at 24611 Production Circle Bonita Springs, Bonita Springs, FL, off of Tamiami Trail, also known as Alligator Alley, the new dispensary is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The 4,000 square-foot facility includes innovative shopping displays that engage and educate patients, two private consultation rooms and two private waiting rooms where patients, physicians and community members can learn about the benefits of medical cannabis in a relaxed and secure environment.
"Each day Liberty works to help our patients live the life they deserve through our commitment to provide them access to the highest quality medicinal cannabis," said Victor E. Mancebo, interim Chief Executive Officer of Liberty. "We are excited to open the doors to our patients in Bonita Springs and serve our patients in Lee County. This location will mark Liberty's first location in the Southwest region of the state.
