Why It's Important
Spring Oaks Greenhouses has a medical marijuana dispensary license and an authorization to operate as a medical marijuana treatment center in Florida. The dispensary license allows it to start production, processing and selling medical cannabis and cannabis products.
Spring Oaks has the right to open up to 35 dispensaries across the state, with a potential to increase this number to 40 once the Florida medical marijuana program surpasses 300,000 patients.
Green Growth Brands CEO Peter Horvath said in a statement that entering the Florida medical marijuana market through the acquisition of Spring Oaks will be a great expansion to the company's operations in Nevada and Massachusetts and its nation-wide CBD business.
