AltMed Florida to Open Tampa's Largest Medical Cannabis Dispensary
TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 2, 2018
TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AltMed Florida has announced the opening of its first Tampa MÜV™ Medical Cannabis dispensary location at 7229 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. Just north of the airport, it's easily accessible for Florida patients in Pinellas County to the west, and rapidly growing population centers east and north of Tampa, from Brandon to Wesley Chapel.
The Grand Opening is Saturday, October 6, 2018 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9:45 a.m.
The dispensary opens for business at 10 a.m. for licensed Florida medical cannabis patients.
Like AltMed Florida's two current locations (Sarasota and Apollo Beach), the new Tampa dispensary stands out from competitors because it's designed as a premium experience. Think Apple store, with modern open-concept design, expert staff with extensive training, a high staff to customer ratio and premium products with trusted award-winning brands known for quality and consistency.
"We are changing the medial cannabis experience to what it should be for Florida patients who deserve the best," said AltMed Florida CEO John Tipton. "Our MÜV Medical Cannabis Dispensaries are unlike anything in the market. We invite all licensed patients to visit any of our three locations and to learn about our proven line of products."
The MÜV brand already has a wide following in other legal medical cannabis markets, including Arizona, where it has won Five Best of Arizona medical cannabis awards.
MÜV Products offer an extensive variety of delivery options and formulation, including several that are unique among current Florida license holders with its patent-pending transdermal gels and metered dose inhalers. Products come high in CBD or THC as well as CBD/THC balanced formulations. Product categories include topicals (gels and creams), 72-hour transdermal patches, metered dose inhalers, distillate vaporizer pens (without any cutting agents), all-natural terpene enriched vaporizer pens, strain specific vaporizer pens, oral sprays, tinctures as well as the widest selection of strain specific shatter concentrates in the state of Florida.
MÜV Products are sold exclusively in Florida at MÜV dispensaries because, unlike other states, Florida does not allow wholesale of product between license holders - only products that license holders make themselves can be sold in their dispensaries.
"The MÜV retail experience speaks to the role of medical cannabis products in the modern healthcare marketplace," said AltMed Marketing Director Todd Beckwith. "We learned that MÜV customers in other legal medical cannabis states are more apt to take an active role in their healthcare than with traditional medicine. They want to understand the products and the research behind the products, so we have created a layered and informative retail experience."
