For the first time in more than eight years, Rhode Island is getting a new medical cannabis compassion center.
Plant Based Compassionate Care, doing business as Sweetspot Dispensary, is opening its facility at 91 Pershing Avenue in South Kingstown. Sweetspot was one of the winners in last year’s lottery to bring new compassion centers to the state. Since then, the company says in a press release that it has been working closely with the RI Office of Cannabis Regulation (OCR) and the town of South Kingstown to secure all necessary licensing and approvals.
“We are going to collaborate with all cultivators and processors in Rhode Island to offer more than 19,000 Rhode Island medical marijuana card holders diverse medical cannabis products through our innovative delivery system,” said Jason Webski, of Sweetspot Dispensary in a statement. “With the blessing of state regulators, we will be offering statewide home delivery to medical marijuana patients in every community in Rhode Island. Our South Kingstown location will be a consultation-only office, offering personalized information to educate patients in need,” Webski added.
While providing access to patients statewide, Sweetspot Dispensary says that it will be prioritizing delivery services to those patients in Zone 5,
