Curaleaf will begin serving its first adult-use customers at its Bellmawr dispensary on April 21
Curaleaf, a leading international provider of consumer products in cannabis, today announced that it has been approved by the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission to commence adult-use cannabis sales. Starting today, April 21, 2022, the Curaleaf dispensary in Bellmawr will begin serving adult-use customers, with Edgewater Park and Bordentown to quickly follow.
During this period of expansion, patient care for individuals licensed under New Jersey’s Medical Marijuana Program will remain Curaleaf’s top priority at all New Jersey retail locations. In anticipation of increased demand, the Company has tripled its cultivation capacity to ensure that medical patient supply is prioritized in the event of a product shortage. Additionally, Curaleaf will implement the following designated medical patient services for individuals who qualify:
- Private consultation areas
- Secure online ordering systems
- Expanded parking with dedicated spots for licensed medical patients
- Separate medical-patient only lines and check outs
- Two hours of operation every day dedicated solely to serving licensed medical patients, totaling 14 hours each week at each dispensary.
On April 21, adult-use consumers over 21 can purchase up to one ounce of cannabis per day at Curaleaf Bellmawr located at 640 Creek Road. Adult-use customers can choose from a product assortment that includes innovative products such as Select Squeeze, a fast-acting THC beverage enhancer, as well as traditional inhalable products including Curaleaf 3.5g flower jar, the Curaleaf 1g pre-roll and Curaleaf .5g vape cartridge. Shortly after launching, Curaleaf New Jersey will also offer its expanded assortment of award-winning Select products, including Select Bites and Select Elite vape cartridges, pending regulatory approvals.
“The launch of New Jersey’s adult-use marketplace is a major step forward for the cannabis industry and it is a privilege to be among the inaugural group of licensees that will mark the beginning of the state’s adult-use market,” said Joe Bayern, CEO of Curaleaf. “Our local teams look forward to building strong relationships with new consumers while deepening our ties with the medical community. Providing top-tier medical patient care remains our main priority and we have adopted considerable safeguards to make sure they can seamlessly access products to find relief. We thank you for your continued support as we join the state of New Jersey on this historic journey.”
