Company expands its portfolio with the addition of four dispensaries in Phoenix, Glendale, and Tolleson.




Story Cannabis Company has announced the acquisition of four vertically integrated cannabis licenses, currently branded under the name Nature’s Medicines, located in Arizona. The Company acquired the assets from Devi Holdings Inc. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Company’s newly purchased facilities are currently operating and serving Arizona’s adult-use and medical consumers from two locations in Phoenix, one in Tolleson, and one in Glendale. With the recent additions, the Company’s portfolio in Arizona now includes operations of 11 retail locations and two cultivation facilities.

The latest development, says the Company, is part of its plan to grow quickly through the purchase or expansion of vertically integrated cannabis assets in target states. “The Company prioritizes states that have high-profit margins, steep growth curves, and the expectation of soon-to-be permitted adult-use sales,” it said in a press release.

The acquisition effort was led by Story Cannabis executives and cannabis entrepreneurs, CEO Jason Vedadi, and COO Joe Sai.
