Multistate operator Sweetspot Brands is celebrating the grand opening of its first medical cannabis dispensary in New Jersey.
Located at 903 White Horse Road in Voorhees Township, Sweetspot Dispensary is the 29th medical dispensary in the Garden State and the first business from the state’s 2019 round of licensing to begin serving medical patients.
After the New Jersey Health Department posted a request for applications to select entities to operate alternative treatment centers, it received 109 submissions. Ultimately, it approved 30 dispensary permit endorsements, including Sweetspot Dispensary, in December 2019.
Since being awarded the license, the company said it worked closed with the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (CRC) and township officials to secure its final medical dispensary license and required local approvals.
