New Jersey continues to see more and more cannabis dispensaries officially setting up shop, with Harrison’s first legal storefront launching this week.
San Francisco, Calif.-born cannabis brand Cookies expanded its East Coast footprint with its debut New Jersey store Aug. 16 at 331 Angelo Cifelli Drive, right across from Red Bull Arena.
The flagship shop’s menu includes proprietary flower cultivars, pre-rolls and vapes. It also offers glass, accessories and local reserve apparel that pays homage to both the Garden State and the City of Harrison.
It’s another cannabis market win for Central Jersey.
Leaf Haus will have a grand-opening celebration Aug. 17, as it becomes the third legal weed shop to open to customers 21 and over in Somerset County.
The store is located at 900 Easton Ave, Suite 18 in Franklin Township’s Somerset Village shopping center, next to H&R Block.
Leaf Haus is a small store with a large product selection to choose from.
New Jersey’s 38th recreational legal weed store is about to open.
Design 710 is located at 112 Park Place inside the Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City, two blocks from the boardwalk. It is the second legal weed store to open in the city and the closest to the beach.
The official opening date for recreational weed sales is Tuesday, Aug. 15.
The shop is part dispensary, part art gallery.
In Middle Township, one of only four municipalities in Cape May County to authorize cannabis businesses, a deal for a cannabis growing operation on Indian Trail Road has fallen through. Middle supported the Massachusetts-based INSA company in its attempt to rehabilitate the former La Monica plant as a growing site back in October 2021.
Experts testified on behalf of Lushly LLC, doing business as Gaslight Dispensary, during last night’s Planning Board meeting. The applicant sought conditional use approval, minor site plan approval and C 2 parking variance relief. Lushly also requested approval for interior modifications.
The company’s attorney, Zachary Rosenberg from Bressler Amery & Ross stated, “They're proposing to operate a micro adult-use cannabis retail dispensary in an existing storefront and retail building located at 55 Academy Street.
HoneyGrove touts "an inviting environment (and) a comfortable space custom built for an enjoyable-yet-purposeful experience," according to its website. The new facility will open during the following hours:
Monday through Saturday: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday: 12-5 p.m.
Wednesday will also mark HoneyGrove's grand opening.
HoneyGrove will become the second dispensary to open in the township. The first is MPX NJ (581 Berlin-Cross Keys Rd., Sicklerville), which offers both medical and recreational weed.
The Friday ribbon cutting for Downtown Flwr on the Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza made history as the first minority/women owned dispensary in Jersey City.
With one entrance on the Pedestrian Mall and a second one on Columbus Avenue, Downtown Flwr is set to sell medical cannabis at first, but designed with the anticipation of opening as a source of recreational cannabis in the near future, possibly as early as a month, according to facility manager, Ken Oreslau. The owners also hope to eventually have a cannabis lounge for onsite consumption.
Earlier this year Flower & Flame dispensary was approved in Gloucester Township to open in a former TD Bank building on College Drive, which is across the street from the Autumn Ridge apartments and in close proximity to Camden County College.
It appears the approval was for an adult-use cannabis dispensary (not medical) and the public notice makes some mention of a potential delivery service also, although the Gloucester Township Zoning Board minutes make no mention of delivery.
However, those issues have been resolved, Morris told TAPinto in an email.
“The Township had a professional discussion with the business owner and their team to resolve outstanding issues,” he said. “The Township is satisfied with the results of those discussions (and) Daylite has received approval from the Township."
In a joyous and momentous occasion, the city of East Orange gathered today to witness the groundbreaking ceremony for The Flower Garden Dispensary, a pioneering black-owned business set to revolutionize the cannabis industry in the area. The project, which will be constructed by skilled union labor, marks a significant step forward in promoting diversity, economic growth, and job creation within the community.
