Ayr Wellness Inc. is expanding the menu of cannabis brands at the three Garden State Dispensary stores it runs in New Jersey.
In an Oct. 20 press release, the Miami-based multistate operator (MSO) said it is rolling out several brands from its national portfolio, including Lost in Translation premium whole flower, Kynd premium whole flower, Road Tripper whole flower, STIX pre-rolls, Entourage broad-spectrum, terpene-driven vape cartridges, Secret Orchid fruit-forward vape cartridges and Wicked soft lozenges.
All brands, with the exception of Kynd and Road Tripper, are available to both medical patients and adult-use consumers at Garden State Dispensary’s retail locations in Woodbridge, Union and Eatontown. Ayr expects Kynd and Road Tripper to debut on the adult-use menu in the coming weeks.
In June, the MSO simultaneously opened its three dispensaries to adult-use sales, giving the company one of the largest shares of the projected $2 billion recreational use market by footprint in the state.
Since acquiring Garden State Dispensary for $101 million in April 2021, Jonathan Sandelman, founder and chief executive officer of Ayr, said the company is focused on providing “an elevated experience for all New Jersey patients and consumers.”
“The introduction of our portfolio of high-quality brands to our menus marks a major milestone in carrying out that mission,” he said. “We know that our customers have diverse wants and needs, and it’s important to us that we meet them wherever they are in their cannabis journey.”
At present, 19 dispensaries have been licensed by the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission to sell recreational marijuana.
