Etain To Expand Into the New Jersey Cannabis Market
Vertically integrated permit will transform the company into a multi-state operator and bring its high-quality products to more medical cannabis patients
New York, NY - October, 2021 - Etain Health, New York’s only family-run, women-owned vertically integrated agribusiness and medical marijuana dispensary, has been granted a recommended selection for a vertically integrated permit in New Jersey. This award allows Etain to move forward with plans to open a cannabis growing and processing site and medical dispensary in the state. The company was approved for a 30,000-square-foot growing facility in the North region of New Jersey.
“Over 117,000 patients are currently enrolled in New Jersey’s medical marijuana program, but the state only has 23 dispensaries open to provide this necessary medical aid to that population,” said Amy Peckam, CEO of Etain. “Approving additional cannabis growing, processing and dispensary licenses in the state will immensely help the program, providing patients with more variety and reducing their travel time to obtain their medicine. We cannot wait to bring our high-quality products and formulations to the patients and customers of New Jersey.”
Etain was one of the original five licensees in New York in 2015 and now has dispensaries in Yonkers, Kingston, Syracuse and a flagship in Midtown East in New York City. This approval will allow the company to open its first location outside of New York and expand the company’s presence in the tri-state area.
