Gardner, MA-based Sanctuary Medicinals celebrated the opening of its eighth store in the state of Florida on Friday. The dispensary in West Palm Beach is part of the multi-state cannabis company’s planned rapid expansion into southeast Florida.

With current operations in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Florida, Sanctuary recently received its provisional retail license in New Jersey. The multi-state cannabis company out of New England prides itself on cultivating premium cannabis products. Sanctuary’s award-winning creations span the cannabis spectrum: flower, vapes, tinctures, edibles, topicals and concentrates. Its online menu lists 137 Sanctuary Medicinals branded products. Sanctuary’s dispensaries in Gardner and Woburn were rated in the top 10 in Massachusetts for recreational and medicinal sales by Leafly.

“As always, it’s exciting and energizing to celebrate another grand opening here in Florida,” said Jason Sidman, CEO of Sanctuary Medicinals. “West Palm Beach is as far south as we’ve gone to this point, so we’re excited to bring our great products and people further into the Palm Beach region.”

The dispensary marks the company’s second location in Palm Beach County, joining Sanctuary Medicinals Jupiter, in nearby Jupiter, FL. The new 3,000-square-foot dispensary is the southernmost Sanctuary location to date in Florida and is accessible to patients traveling on the turnpike or Okeechobee Blvd.

“Given the most recent openings for Sanctuary have been on the Gulf Coast, it’s nice to shift gears geographically and add a third location in Southeast Florida,” said Bill Dewar, chief operating officer of Sanctuary. “We have several more locations coming to this area before the end of the year, so it’ll be exciting to continue learning this region and connect with its patients,” Dewar added.

With a third location in Fort Pierce to round out its complement of dispensaries in southeast Florida, Sanctuary can now reach patients across much of Saint Lucie, Stuart and Palm Beach counties. In addition to its larger statewide development, the company plans to continue expanding in southeast Florida. Upcoming openings will be taking place in Greenacres, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Hallandale Beach, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and a second West Palm Beach location east of Palm Beach International Airport.

Sanctuary also has new product drops in the works aimed at continuing expansion of its edible and concentrate offerings in Florida.
