WELLINGTON — The only medical marijuana dispensary in Wellington is poised to offer edible supplements, thanks to a new partnership and a recent rule change from the Florida Department of Health.
MÜV, off State Road 7 north of Forest Hill Boulevard in the Wellington Reserve commercial development, is owned by AltMed Florida, which said Wednesday in a news release that it is working with Wana Brands to bring edible marijuana products to its 25 dispensaries.
The state Department of Health late last month published on its website an emergency rule that allows the sale of edibles, effective Aug. 27.
AltMed Florida will make and sell Wana Edibles products at MÜV dispensaries, AltMed said in its news release.
The sale of edibles at AltMed’s dispensaries is pending approval of the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use. The state’s rules say that before AltMed can sell any edibles, each one has to be approved for sale by the Department of Health.
According to the news release, Wana is the No. 1 selling edible in Arizona.
“We know our Florida patients are always best served by the highest-quality products we can offer,” AltMed Florida CEO John Tipton said. “Through this partnership with Wana Brands, we will have another quality alternative for our cannabis patients to experience.”
The deal should have Wana products at MÜV later this year, the news release said.
Trulieve, the state’s largest dispensary chain with two locations in Palm Beach County, began selling edibles Sept. 2 after receiving its state approval, the company said in a news release.
