Green Thumb Welcomes Patients to 16th RISE Dispensary in Florida

In a bid to expand its reach in Florida, RISE Dispensaries, a prominent cannabis retail chain owned by Green Thumb Industries Inc., is thrilled to announce the opening of its 16th retail outlet in Wesley Chapel, nestled within the Tampa Bay area.

The newly unveiled RISE Dispensary Wesley Chapel is set to welcome its first visitors on April 26, extending special discounts and complimentary items to the initial 150 customers.

Situated at 28053 Wesley Chapel Blvd., Wesley Chapel, Fla. 33543, the dispensary is poised to cater to medical cannabis patients with an array of offerings, including premium flower and full spectrum vapes from RYTHM, prerolls from Dogwalkers, and a selection of flower, prerolls, vapes, and chews from Good Green and &Shine.

Expressing his enthusiasm for the opening, Green Thumb President Anthony Georgiadis remarked, “We couldn’t be more excited to open our first RISE Dispensary in Pasco County, representing our 16th store in the state.” He underscored the convenience of the dispensary’s location, just off Interstate 75, and emphasized the carefully curated assortment of products available to patients.

The grand opening festivities for RISE Dispensary Wesley Chapel are slated for June 7, featuring exclusive discounts, merchandise giveaways, and a ceremonial ribbon-cutting in collaboration with the North Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce.

Attendees can indulge in delectable treats from the local Glazed and Confused food truck, with complimentary mini donuts for the initial 100 patrons.

Profits generated from the event will be directed towards Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting accessibility and equity within the cannabis industry.

RISE Dispensary Wesley Chapel marks the second RISE Dispensary debut in Florida this year, following the successful launch of RISE Dispensary Dunnellon in March.

Since its foray into the Florida market in 2018, Green Thumb has been operating two production facilities in Ocala and Homestead, upholding stringent quality standards for its branded products.

The company’s commitment to community welfare is evident through its retail brand, RISE Dispensaries, which aims to enhance access to cannabis well-being while fostering positive contributions to local communities.
