NEW YORK and TORONTO – TerrAscend Corp. (CSE:TER) (OTCQX: TRSSF) (“TerrAscend” or the “Company”) today announced that it has officially opened its seventh retail dispensary location. The new 4,200 square foot Apothecarium dispensary, located at 2312 Telegraph Ave, Berkeley, CA (“The Apothecarium Berkeley”) is the company’s fourth California dispensary, and TerrAscend’s seventh dispensary nationwide.
The Apothecarium Berkeley is a full-service recreational and medical cannabis dispensary featuring a stylish, upscale design and a staff of highly trained cannabis consultants to assist guests. The store carries a wide variety of cannabis products, including edibles, flowers, vaping products, concentrates, capsules, tinctures, topicals, and ancillary products. The new location offers online ordering at apothecarium.com for pickup and delivery.
“We are excited to begin serving our East Bay customers from a beautiful new location on Telegraph Avenue,” said Ryan Hudson, CEO, and co-founder of The Apothecarium. “At The Apothecarium, our focus is on education. We aim to provide one-on-one consultations that help our patients and customers find the right products for their needs. Whether they are looking for help in-person, by phone or via web chat, our cannabis consultants are here to help.”
“For nearly a decade The Apothecarium has set the standard for dispensary design and customer service,” said Jason Ackerman, CEO of TerrAscend. “The Apothecarium Berkeley is raising the bar again with a refined look and upgraded technology that brings the dispensary’s famous consultations and cannabis education classes online. We’re delighted to expand our footprint; Berkeley is our fourth California dispensary and our first in the East Bay.”
The Apothecarium Berkeley is designed to be comfortable and easy to navigate for seniors, first-time dispensary visitors, and patients with serious medical conditions. The dispensary features The Apothecarium’s typical mix of neo-Victorian furnishings, modern touches, and plenty of natural light. The store was designed by the same team behind The Apothecarium’s three San Francisco dispensaries: architect Vincent Gonzaga and the interior design firm, Urban Chalet.
All Apothecarium dispensaries have implemented strict safety standards to protect guests and team members. Our California safety protocols include strict social distancing inside and outside the dispensaries, a mask requirement for everyone inside the dispensaries, no contact check-in procedures and ongoing sanitizing throughout the day.
