Trulieve, a well-known cannabis company in the state of Florida, has grown yet again on Friday by opening its second dispensary in the Orlando area.
The new Orlando location marks Trulieve’s 29th storefront in Florida.
“We’re excited to expand our reach in the Central Florida area and further ensure consistent, safe, and reliable patient access. Opening a second store in a market like Orlando, where a large portion of patients are concentrated, was important to us as we work to ensure patients continue to have direct, safe access to the medication they rely on,” said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers in a news release.
The expansion is part of a fast-rising era for cannabis business owners where regulations and compliance are being brought into the spotlight.
Trulieve is committed to growing and adapting with legislation. They assert “consistent, reliable, and safe access to relief” for customers in the areas they serve. But that’s not their only cause.
In June, Florida Politics reported on the relationship between Trulieve and Equality Florida when Trulieve announced a portion of proceeds from Trulieve’s “Rainbow” TruPODs, rainbow-colored “TruSTIK” vaporizer pens, and other Pride merch would go to Equality Florida.
Trulieve, a trailblazer, is the first fully licensed medical cannabis company in Florida. The company is a “seed to sale” company that “cultivates and produces all of its products in-house and distributes those products to Trulieve-branded stores.”
According to Bloomberg, Trulieve “produces approximately 170 stock keeping units, including smokable flowers, flower pods for vaporizing, concentrates, topicals, capsules, tinctures, and vape cartridges.”
The company aspires for much growth and anticipates as many as 49 stores by 2020. As the cannabis industry becomes more and more prominent in Florida, it remains to be seen the reach companies like Trulieve could have on the economy.
The new storefront in Orlando is at 9521 South Orange Blossom Trail #107.
