One cannabis patch play that got in gear to close out last week was Trulieve Cannabis Corp (OTCMKTS:TCNNF). The stock held key support above its 50-day moving average and then shot higher on Thursday. To help flesh the story out, the company just announced that it was the first medical marijuana licensee in Florida to make a sale of smokable cannabis.
According to the release, “the sale took place at Trulieve’s Tallahassee dispensary, the first dispensary to have opened in the state. Trulieve’s smokable whole-flower buds will be the first product available and is offered in a rotating selection of popular strains. Trulieve also plans to roll out smokable marijuana in a variety of forms, including pre-roll. Presently, Trulieve operates 26 dispensaries throughout the state of Florida, spanning from Pensacola to Miami. As part of the company’s mission to ensure safe, reliable access for patients statewide, Trulieve plans to continue opening stores statewide as the patient registry and demand grows.”
