VESTAL, NY – (WIVT/WBGH) The third legal marijuana dispensary in Broome County is preparing to open on the Vestal Parkway.
Sacred Bloom, a recreational cannabis dispensary, plans to open sometime in the next two weeks in the strip mall known as The Shoppes at Pierce Hill.
Owner Todd Hartman of Oneonta has been in the smoking accessories business, selling water pipes and such, through both a wholesale and distribution company, as well as a series of shops branded Exscape. His remaining Exscape outlet is on the Commons in Ithaca.
Hartman received his retail license as a result of a 2016 conviction for trying to mail marijuana through the post.
In addition to selling all forms of New York grown and processed marijuana products, such as flower, pre-rolls, gummies, other edibles, drinks and vapes, Sacred Bloom will feature a vast array of smoking paraphernalia.
Owner Todd Hartman says, “Accessories are very important. How to consume the product. It can be done in many different ways from rolling papers all the way up to modern day digital devices. We cover every aspect of that spectrum.”
