Ascend Wellness, a multi-state, vertically integrated cannabis operator, intends to commence selling of recreational cannabis sales at their four licensed dispensaries located in Aberdeen, Crofton, Ellicott City, and Laurel beginning Saturday, July 1.
The company acquired these dispensaries on April 28, 2023 and has since rebranded the four stores to the 'Ascend' brand. The company also made significant aesthetic and operational improvements to the stores, including doubling points of sale at many of the locations in anticipation of adult-use demand.
Ascend is pleased to begin to offer their catalog of top-tier cannabis brands and a full menu of products to recreational customers across the state of Maryland. Consumers over 21 will be able to access a separate adult-use menu featuring a wide selection of products, including flower, edibles, vapes and more. Ascend will also be offering pick-up appointments at all four locations to ensure smooth service.
"Saturday will be a historic day in Maryland and Ascend is thrilled to participate by launching adult-use sales across our four dispensary locations," said Vince Bozman, Regional Retail Vice President of AWH. "We are excited to serve all Maryland's cannabis consumers and further deepen our relationships within each community."
To preserve the same excellent service level our medical patients have become accustomed to, Ascend will provide medical patients with a host of dedicated services including: express medical patient access, dedicated parking spots, and private consulting rooms.
