Here’s what to know on the first day of legal weed in New Jersey.
Where is the nearest dispensary?
The Apothecarium in Phillipsburg is the closest New Jersey dispensary that has been cleared for recreational sales. It opens at 10 a.m. Thursday at 55 South Main Street.
Parent company TerrAscend also has an Apothecarium in Maplewood, which opens at 9 a.m.
Other New Jersey legal weed sites are:
• Verano, under the Zen Leaf banner, at its locations in Elizabeth and Lawrence at 9 a.m.
Acreage Holdings, Inc. (“Acreage”) (CSE:ACRG.A.U, ACRG.B.U), (OTCQX: ACRHF, ACRDF), a vertically integrated, multi-state operator of cannabis cultivation and retailing facilities in the U.S., today announced the completion of an expansion at its Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey cultivation facility (the “Facility”). The expansion maximized the cultivation and manufacturing footprint of the ~85,000 square foot facility, which ultimately increased capacity output fourfold.
A Friday vote by the state’s Cannabis Regulatory Commission pulled the rug out from under plans for a medical cannabis site in Middle Township.
As a result, Massachusetts-based Insa plans to pivot to the adult-use market.
Insa planned to build a new facility on Indian Trail Road to grow and sell cannabis for the medical market under what’s known as a vertically integrated license.
In a virtual meeting, the state board approved four new vertically integrated licenses, including one in South Jersey, as well as new cultivation licenses.
The company held a pre-opening ribbon cutting on Friday, where Mayor Richard DiLuca cut the ribbon on the building and welcomed the company to town.
“As you said, your slogan is ‘Come Grow with Us in Monroe Township’ … and, we plan to grow with you,” said Brian Sickora, general manager of The Botanist in New Jersey. “Although we won’t be growing the actual plant at this location, we’re honored to serve the community, provide more access to medical cannabis in the state of New Jersey, and truly grow with you.”
New Jersey’s 15th medical marijuana dispensary will open this week, marking more slow but steady progress in the state’s cannabis industry.
The Botanist, which is operated by Canadian cannabis giant Acreage, will open its doors to patients this week in Williamstown once it receives final state approval. It’s the company’s third dispensary in the state. The other two are in Atlantic City and Egg Harbor Township.
