MONTGOMERYVILLE, PA — A new medical marijuana dispensary has opened up its doors in Montgomeryville, organizers announced this week, and several more are planned around the state.
Laurel Harvest Labs, located on 721 Bethlehem Pike, is one of eight clinical research licensees in the state, meaning that the company works with the state to test the effectivity of various cannabis strains in treating a wide variety of ailments.
“We are thrilled to bring a new experience to patients in the Commonwealth, with the opening of our first of six dispensaries,” CEO Nick Karalis said in a statement. “We are equally excited to see our cultivation and extraction facility begin the journey of offering the highest-grade medical cannabis to improve patient outcomes and positively impact their daily lives, through personalized care from our team of pharmacists.”
Laurel Harvest touts itself as “pharmacist owned,” and works with Temple University cannabis science researchers to examine and apply patient experience. Their grow facility is based in Mount Joy in Lancaster County.
Another dispensary is slated to open in Scranton in August, with more coming later this year and early next year.
