NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Columbia Care Inc. (NEO: CCHW) (CSE: CCHW) (OTCQX: CCHWF) (FSE: 3LP) (“Columbia Care” or the “Company”), one of the largest and most experienced cultivators, manufacturers and providers of cannabis products in the U.S., announced today that its newest dispensary in West Virginia, located at 225 Don Knotts Blvd in Morgantown, is now open. Cannabist Morgantown is the fourth Columbia Care dispensary to open in the state in two months and the Company’s 84th nationwide.
“The Cannabist momentum across West Virginia is remarkable, and would not have been possible without a strong local team and the support of the West Virginia Office of Cannabis Management and community leaders,” said Andrew Bayly, Director of Operations – Midwest, Columbia Care. “We are grateful to be able to share our passion for the plant and offer high quality medical cannabis to patients who so desperately need it.”
Columbia Care is currently one of two operators in the state manufacturing product, and is the only operator selling to third party dispensaries, with its product now available in 75% of the state’s dispensaries. Since opening its first dispensary, the Company has launched 20 products under the Seed & Strain brand. The current menu offers eight different strains, as well as six different vape varieties, which are available in two different sizes. Additional in-house brands Triple Seven and Classix are anticipated to launch in the state next quarter, pending regulatory approval.
As the Company’s dispensaries open across the state, the West Virginia team is partnering with registered physicians of Releaf Specialists to help new patients apply for medical cards. For those who are unable to attend, the staff is directing them to the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources website which offers a list of registered telehealth providers. Patients will be able to use Columbia Care’s proprietary cannabis discovery tool, Forage, both in-store and online to help find strains and products to fit their needs.
