Ayr Wellness Opens New Dispensary in Hollywood, Fla.

Liberty Health Sciences Hollywood is the company's 38th dispensary in Florida, and the first in the city.


NEW YORK, July 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRESS RELEASE -- Ayr Wellness Inc., a vertically integrated cannabis multi-state operator, has announced the opening of Liberty Health Sciences Hollywood, the company’s 38th open dispensary in Florida.

The dispensary is located at 2119-A Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, Florida, 33020. The 3,300-square-foot location sits on the main thoroughfare between I-95 and the Hollywood central business district. LHS Hollywood will become the first dispensary to open in the city of Hollywood, located on Florida’s east coast between Fort Lauderdale and Miami with a population of over 150,000. The vibrant beach community is home to the Hollywood Beach Boardwalk, a diverse selection of restaurants and shops, and the ArtsPark at Young Circle. Until recently, the Hollywood City Council had prohibited medical cannabis dispensaries within its borders. The dispensary features a selection of flower products, in addition to the company’s newly launched Origyn concentrates and Big Pete’s Cookies.

Jonathan Sandelman, CEO of Ayr, said, “We continue to execute on our Florida plan, opening dispensaries in prime locations like the under-served community of Hollywood. We are enhancing our cultivation efforts to make us the largest cultivator of high-quality cannabis in the state and our updated product offerings, including a diversified strain selection and launch of Origyn Extracts and Big Pete’s Cookies, are positively improving the customer experience. We are excited to be the first dispensary to serve the patients of Hollywood and provide to them more convenient access to safe, high-quality medicine.”

Hours of operation are Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. ET and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET.
