Curaleaf (CSE: CURA) (OTCQX: CURLF) announced that it has received its hybrid producer license from Connecticut’s Department of Consumer Protection to supply cannabis to the state’s new adult-use market, which kicked off on Jan 10. Connecticut is now one of 21 states to legalize adult-use cannabis sales in the U.S. and is expected to generate over $215 million in revenue in the first year of adult-use sales.
“We are proud to provide Curaleaf products across the state as Connecticut celebrates this important milestone in opening a safe and equitable adult-use cannabis market,” said Matt Darin, CEO of Curaleaf. “We commend Governor Lamont and the state legislature for their leadership in the recent expungement of low-level cannabis convictions for over 40,000 residents as part the state’s legalization measure.”

The locations are Affinity Health & Wellness in New Haven, Rise in Branford, The Botanist in Montville, Fine Fettle in Newington, Stamford and Willimantic, and Willow Brook Wellness by Zen Leaf in Meriden. Products will vary by dispensary and include Curaleaf whole flower, pre-rolls, Select Elite vapes and Curaleaf’s vape hardware, Cliq by Select.
