Medical marijuana shop opening in Edgewater

Another Central Florida medical marijuana shop is opening, this one operated by the licensed marijuana medicines producer Trulieve in Edgewater in Volusia County.

The dispensary, at 103 Boston Rd., will be the first in the Space Coast area, providing both low-THC and high-THC products through capsules, vaporizers and tinctures, for patients who are registered as qualified with the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Compassionate Use.

Last week Knox Medical opened a shop in Orlando.

“Our goal is to help as many patients as we can, so we’re thrilled we can now better serve our patients in Edgewater and Volusia County,” Trulieve Chief Executive Officer Kim Rivers stated in a news release. “Opening new dispensary locations is vital to ensuring faster delivery times and increasing patient access. We will continue to open more locations throughout the rest of the year.”

Trulieve currently delivers marijuana-based medicines statewide, and has five other dispensaries, in Clearwater, Miami, Pensacola, Tallahassee, and Tampa.
