“Bluma Wellness looks forward to capping an incredible year of growth in 2020 with the planned opening of One Plant Florida’s seventh retail dispensary and delivery hub, in Fern Park, before the end of the year,” said Brady Cobb, Chief Executive Officer of Bluma Wellness. “One Plant Florida remains in the top three among Florida MMTCs in volume of medical cannabis flower sold per retail dispensary in Florida. We’ve made the strategic decision to slow the overall pace of our new dispensary openings so we can analyze both the output from our brand new cultivation facilities in Indiantown, as well as sales across our existing retail dispensary locations, with the end goal of achieving the most voluminous and profitable retail dispensaries and delivery hub locations in the state.”
“I’d also like to thank the entire team at Bluma Wellness and One Plant Florida and all of our patients for helping to make 2020 such an incredible year for our company,” added Cobb. “From our families to yours, we wish you Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year.”
Bluma Wellness opened One Plant Florida’s sixth retail dispensary location and delivery hub in the State of Florida, located in Avon Park, on October 19, 2020. The retail dispensary and delivery hub is centrally located at 299 U.S. Highway 27 S, Avon Park, FL 33825, allowing One Plant Florida to serve qualified patients in Highlands County and throughout Central Florida.
