“Virginia continues to be a top market for Columbia Care, as we expand our footprint and increase access to the growing base of registered patients,” said Jesse Channon, Chief Growth Officer, Columbia Care. “We chose this specific location in Hampton because of the growing patient population and the accessibility for the communities on the peninsula as we strive to serve all of Tidewater. We’re thrilled to bring the Cannabist experience to more patients who are seeking this transformational medicine, and we could not have done this without the support of the local community, legislators and the Board of Pharmacy. We are incredibly grateful and look forward to the continued efforts to improve the medical cannabis program.”
Cannabist Hampton will sell Columbia Care products including Classix, gLeaf, Hedy, and Seed & Strain.
