Ontario-based cannabis producer, Aphria, is opening its first retail store in Jamaica.
According to Aphria’s release, the Leamington, Ontario-based Company’s subsidiary Marigold Projects Jamaica was given a retail license from the Cannabis Licensing Authority of the country to start its first store this August.
The company noted that its new store – Sensi Medical Cannabis House – will be at Peter Tosh Square and will have Marigold’s proprietary Strains, brands called Sensi Gold, high-end accessories for sale, and a smoking lounge. Marigold is planning to open four more retail marijuana shops in Jamaica once their licensing application is approved.
In the release, Irwin D. Simon, Aphria’s CEO, said that they believe that there is a tremendous opportunity in Jamaica from an international and domestic perspective, and they are looking forward to getting Sensi products to the market. Irwin added that getting a license from the Jamaican government is a sign of validation of its quality cannabis production.
Sensi Medical Herb House will have its official opening in August 2019.
