Medical marijuana dispensary chain Trulieve announced it will open up its first dispensary in St. Petersburg Wednesday.
“We have a large and rapidly growing patient base in the Tampa Bay area and we’re thrilled to expand our service to them,” said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. “We will be opening more dispensaries throughout the remainder of this year.”
The new location, situated on 4th Street North in the Riviera Bay area, marks the company’s ninth dispensary in the Sunshine State.
The company will officially open its doors in St. Pete after a press conference and guided tour of the dispensary Wednesday morning.
Trulieve opened its Clearwater location last year and opened for business in Tampa in January. The company also has dispensaries in Edgewater, Jacksonville, Miami, Pensacola, Tallahassee and Lady Lake.
The dispensary will carry an assortment of low- and high-THC products with various delivery methods including capsules, vaporizers, and tinctures.
Among Trulieve’s products is a Cannatol-based rescue nasal spray that can quickly stop seizures if taken at the onset.
In order to receive marijuana-based products from the dispensary, customers will have to produce a Medical Marijuana Use Identification Card from Florida’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
To apply for the ID, patients must be Florida residents and need to be added to a state registry of qualifying patients by a physician.
