With nearly 170,000 medical cannabis patients and counting, Trulieve matches the state's brisk growth pace
ST. AUGUSTINE, FL, Jan. 14, 2019 /CNW/ - Trulieve Cannabis Corp. (CSE: TRUL), Florida's leading medical marijuana provider, is opening the doors on its newest location Monday, the dispensary a first for St. John's County and the company's 24th in Florida.
"Since its inception, Trulieve has been dedicated to reliable patient access. We have taken our responsibility as St. Augustine's only approved dispensary very seriously and worked to create a space where patients can feel safe and comfortable, while ensuring their access to the same high-quality products and natural relief patients across Florida have access to," said Kim Rivers, Trulieve CEO. "Our goal with this dispensary is to continue providing safe, effective relief to patients who need it most, especially those who may not have been able to make it to a physical location before."
Presently, Trulieve operates 23 other dispensaries throughout the state of Florida, including locations in Jacksonville and Palm Coast. As part of the company's mission to ensure safe, reliable access for patients statewide, Trulieve plans to continue opening stores statewide as the patient registry and demand grows.
In stores and online, patients will find Florida's largest selection of THC and CBD products, available in a variety of delivery methods, including concentrates, ground flower for vaporizing, tinctures, topical creams, vaporizers, and more. Trulieve also offers home delivery statewide for patients unable to make it to a physical store, in addition to its 24 dispensaries in locations across the state.
Recently, the Office of Medical Marijuana Use announced the registry had surpassed 168,000 registered medical marijuana patients with an active ID card, with Trulieve consistently selling between 60%-80% of the state's overall volume, per the Florida Department of Health. There are currently more than 1,900 registered ordering physicians in the state of Florida as well.
To celebrate their newest store, Trulieve will be holding a press conference with Victoria Walker, Director of Marketing and Community Relations, on Monday, January 14th at 10:00 AM, with doors opening and press tours of the new dispensary immediately following.
