Saturday marked another first for the New Jersey cannabis industry – the grand opening of the Garden State's first standalone retail dispensary, Earth & Ivy, in New Brunswick.
Earth & Ivy is not a medical treatment center and can’t fulfill state Medicinal Cannabis Program orders from doctors, but medical marijuana patients will receive a discount.
Earth & Ivy, a recreational dispensary founded by three student-athlete alumni from the University of Pennsylvania, is set to open its doors in New Brunswick.
Located at 355 George St., the storefront will begin welcoming customers May 20 following a 9:45 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Puffin, a small New Jersey-based company whose applications to dispense cannabis has been approved by New Brunswick and the state through the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission, will be opening its first location in the city.
The dispensary, which will set up inside the former Verizon store at 382 George St., is hoping to open its doors by late spring.
Puffin, whose sly word-play name conjures images of a long drag on a joint or pipe, but uses the bright-nosed seabird as a corporate logo, will likely count its fair share of Rutgers students among its clientele.
