2 Apothecarium Cannabis Dispensaries To Open In Pennsylvania

North American cannabis operator TerrAscend Corp. (OTC: TRSSF) announced this week it will open its Apothecarium branded dispensaries in two Pennsylvania locations: Lancaster and Plymouth Meeting.

The Apothecarium in Lancaster will be a 4,300 square-foot dispensary, with a grand opening scheduled for mid-April. This dispensary will cary a wide range of medical cannabis products manufactured and sold under TerrAscend’s recently acquired Ilera brand, including flower, concentrates, capsules and more.

The Plymouth Meeting dispensary is currently an Ilera Healthcare Dispensary, and will reopen as The Apthecarium in April as well. The Plymouth Meeting location, housed in a former bank, recently opened Pennsylvania’s first drive-through pick up to allow patients to access their medicine while maintaining physical distancing.

The opening of these new retail locations comes as TerrAscend increases its cultivation and manufacturing capabilities in Pennsylvania. The company currently supplies its products to 65 of the 76 dispensaries in the state.

People are stockpiling marijuana as the coronavirus pandemic forces everyone to hunker down in their homes, perhaps for a long time.

All around the world, there are pictures surfacing on social media of long lines outside of dispensaries. From Toronto to San Francisco to Amsterdam, cannabis products are flying off the shelves.

The old saying that vice industries — gambling, tobacco, alcohol, firearms — are recession-proof seems to apply to legal cannabis’s first big test.

‘Sales are through the roof’
