Aphria is opening a cannabis shop in Jamaica next month.
The Leamington Ontario-based cannabis producer said this week its Jamaican subsidiary, Marigold Projects, has received a retail license from the country’s Cannabis Licensing Authority to open its first store in Kingston.
“The approval of Marigold’s first Herb House signals an exciting time for Aphria,” says Irwin D. Simon, independent Chair of Aphria’s Board of Directors. “We believe that there is tremendous opportunity in Jamaica from a domestic and international perspective and we look forward to bringing Sensi products to the market.”
Aphria will open the doors to its fully-stocked Sensi Medical Cannabis House this August.
The retail store will feature a smoking lounge for on-site consumption, high-end cannabis accessories, and Marigold’s cannabis strains for sale.
Marigold Projects, a 49 percent owned subsidiary of Aphria Inc., holds a Tier 3 license to cultivate more than 5-acres of land with cannabis for medical, scientific and therapeutic purposes.
Headquartered Leamington, the greenhouse capital of Ontario, Aphria is a leading global cannabis company setting the standard for the low-cost production of high-quality cannabis at scale, grown in the most natural conditions possible.
With a presence in more than 10 countries across five continents, including Canada and the United States, the company’s portfolio of brands is designed to meet the needs of every consumer segment.
Aphria cannabis products — packaged in 50mL or 100mL bottles — include C02 extracted CBD and THC soft gels and oils in a variety of strengths and strains. According to the company, cannabis oil offers patients a more precise method of dosing for longer-lasting effects. Proudly Canadian, Aphria’s cannabis products are named after lakes and rivers across the country.
