Cannabis cultivation facility operator Ascend Wellness Holdings (AWH) has been approved to serve adult-use consumers in New Jersey.
“It is an honor to be part of the inaugural group of cannabis businesses building the foundation for New Jersey’s adult-use market,” AWH Founder and CEO Abner Kurtin said. “This is a tremendous milestone in our company growth, and we look forward to expanding cannabis access to more residents across the state while continuing to provide our patients with top care.”
AWH serves as one of New Jersey’s first operators to begin adult-use sales in the coming weeks – initially via its flagship Ascend Rochelle Park dispensary. AWH presently operates two of the state’s 23 medical dispensaries, per officials, and is slated to sell adult-use cannabis products at its Montclair, New Jersey, retail location while opening a third dispensary in Fort Lee, New Jersey, later this year.
