Trulieve opens third Orlando dispensary

It marks the company’s 41st storefront.

The state’s largest medical marijuana company is opening a third location in the City Beautiful.

Trulieve’s Colonial Drive location joins two other Orlando stores, both on Orange Blossom Trail. It marks the company’s 41st storefront since it started operating in Florida in 2016.

“Trulieve’s focus this year was growing strategically and expanding access throughout Central Florida is one of the ways we’re doing that. Our third location in Orlando and our 41st in Florida is important as we concentrate on ensuring patients are able to access the natural, effective, and safe medications they have come to rely on,” Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers said.

“With a focus on delivering strong customer-centric experiences, our well-trained staff is ready to assist patients at every step of the process. Whether they are taking their first steps into medical cannabis or seeking a new treatment option, we encourage all patients to reach out to find out more.”’

The store, at 11291 E. Colonial Drive, is holding a grand opening Monday. Trulieve said customers who make a purchase on the first day will receive 25 percent off their purchase.

Trulieve is the state’s largest medical marijuana outfit, selling approximately half of the of the state’s overall volume, per the Florida Department of Health.

Trulieve was the first medical marijuana provider to get rolling in the Sunshine State following Florida voters’ supermajority approval of Amendment 2 in 2016. It has since become the largest as well.

The company is also the first Florida-based medical marijuana company to expand to other states.

Late last year, it announced the acquisition of California-based Leef Industries and Massachusetts-based Life Essence. Trulieve also operates dispensaries in Connecticut.
