The location will be the company's first dispensary in Dunedin.

Trulieve Cannabis Co. is opening a new dispensary in Dunedin, marking the company’s 84th store across the U.S.

The additional store also makes for 79 Florida Trulieve dispensaries, joining several other nearby locations throughout the Tampa Bay area; however, this will be Dunedin’s first Trulieve medical cannabis dispensary.

To celebrate the opening of the new dispensary, patients will be eligible for a 25% in-store discount at each dispensary on opening day only. The new Dunedin store will be located at 1846 Main St., and will hold its grand opening Thursday.

Only patients and their state-approved caregivers will be allowed inside the waiting room and dispensary.

Trulieve has Florida’s largest selection of THC and CBD products in a variety of delivery methods, including edibles, smokable cannabis, concentrates, tinctures, topical creams and vaporizers. It, like other dispensaries, is a vertically integrated “seed-to-sale” company. Trulieve was the first and largest fully licensed medical cannabis company in Florida.

The state’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use recently announced the registry was nearing 520,000 registered medical marijuana patients with an active ID card, with Trulieve selling about half of the state’s overall volume per the Florida Department of Health.

To support the state’s rapidly growing patient base, there are about 2,500 registered ordering physicians in Florida.

In legislation proposed by libertarian-leaning Republican Sen. Jeff Brandes this year, these new storefronts would be able to sell cannabis to individuals 21 and older for recreational use. However, the bill, which has four committee assignments, will likely have an uphill battle against the majority Republican Legislature.
