This opening brings the company’s total number of dispensaries in Florida to 11 and its system-wide total to 29.
The new 3,900-sq.-ft. store is located at 2370 SW College Rd. It is GrowHealthy’s first dispensary in Marion County, serving a rapidly growing patient base from a population of over 350,000.
The store is located in a heavy retail corridor near the Shady Oaks Shopping Center between I-75 and downtown Ocala.
GrowHealthy plans to open an additional dispensary in Stuart later this month. Several additional stores will follow in early 2020 pending regulatory approvals. The company currently has several additional sites under construction and a total of 11 more under lease.
Florida is among the fastest-growing medical marijuana markets in the U.S. According to a recent weekly update from the Florida Office of Medical Marijuana Use, Florida now has over 291,000 qualified patients, up 83% year-over-year.
