As we noted recently, Curaleaf Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:CURLF) represents an interesting possible pullback opportunity in the cannabis patch, with shares recently flipping off deep pivot support just above the $6/share level, and vaulting on a few positive company-specific catalysts. That narrative was helped this week by news of the opening of the company’s 25th Florida dispensary. Florida has been a major focus of growth for the company.
According to the release, Curaleaf has the largest cannabis dispensary footprint in the US, with 48 dispensaries across the country. “In opening our 3rd Orlando area medical marijuana dispensary, we are proud to be able to provide patients in the communities of Sanford, Lake Mary, Lake Monroe, Longwood, Winter Springs, and Midway, Florida with access to Curaleaf’s premium quality products and educational resources,” shared Joe Lusardi, Curaleaf CEO.
