Columbia Care Commences Adult Use Sales at Downtown Boston Dispensary

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Columbia Care Inc. (NEO: CCHW) (CSE: CCHW) (OTCQX: CCHWF) (FSE: 3LP) (“Columbia Care” or the “Company) announces that it will commence adult use sales today at its co-located downtown Boston dispensary on Milk Street, operating as Patriot Care.

“We are proud to be one of Boston’s first downtown dispensaries to offer adult use access,” said Nicholas Vita, CEO of Columbia Care. “It’s an honor to open our doors to recreational cannabis customers and offer them the same high-quality products and services our medical patients depend upon in their health and wellness journey. We are thankful to the Cannabis Control Commission, the City of Boston and the wider cannabis community for welcoming us to the Downtown Crossing neighborhood. We look forward to welcoming everyone who walks through our doors – medical patients and adult use customers alike – and validating the support we received from so many stakeholders who made this possible.”

Patriot Care was the first medical dispensary to open its doors in the city and has served patients since 2016. The dispensary will be rebranded to Cannabist in the coming weeks, as part of Columbia Care’s ongoing conversion of its retail network to Cannabist across the country. Columbia Care operates two additional medical and adult use co-located dispensaries in Massachusetts, in Lowell and Greenfield, as well as 38,000 square feet of cultivation and manufacturing capacity. The three Massachusetts dispensaries feature several of the Company's brands, including Seed & Strain, Triple Seven, Amber, PRESS, and Plant Sugar. Forage, Columbia Care’s proprietary online cannabis discovery tool, is also now available in Lowell and Boston.
