Laurel Harvest Labs is pleased to announce the grand opening of its Montgomeryville dispensary located at 721 Bethlehem Pike, Montgomeryville, P.A. As one of 8 clinical research licensees, Laurel Harvest Labs focuses on patient care in its modern, comfortable dispensaries. Operated by pharmacists, patients are welcomed to the dispensary through a consultation with an experienced pharmacist to determine the best therapeutic regimen based on the individual patients’ needs. Patients select products with the pharmacist in concert with the trained Patient Care Coordinators, and their unique journey is supported by the care team to ensure quality patient outcomes.
A wide array of medical grade cannabis products are available to patients in an effort to successfully address the approved medical conditions in the state of Pennsylvania. In addition to these products, Laurel Harvest Labs will offer patients exclusive strains of cannabis from their local premium grow and process facility in Mount Joy, P.A. The strains of cannabis developed will be highly monitored and rigorously tested for their medicinal efficacy.
“We are thrilled to bring a new experience to patients in the Commonwealth, with the opening of our first of six dispensaries. We are equally excited to see our cultivation and extraction facility begin the journey of offering the highest-grade medical cannabis to improve patient outcomes and positively impact their daily lives, through personalized care from our team of pharmacists,” said Nick Karalis, R.Ph., Chief Executive Officer at Laurel Harvest Labs. “We look forward to the basic, applied and clinical studies with Temple University to ensure we advance the field of cannabis science by delivering the most cutting-edge data to best serve our patients.”
As one of eight Clinical Registrant (CR) licenses in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Laurel Harvest Labs, in partnership with the Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine, will design and conduct various studies to learn more about the effect of medical cannabis. Patients will be eligible to participate in studies. We are extremely fortunate to partner with Temple University and the Center for Substance Abuse Research, one of the most sophisticated cannabis research universities in the United States.
The second Laurel Harvest dispensary will open in Scranton, P.A. in August 2021, with additional facilities to open in late 2021 and early 2022. Each facility will be operated by experienced cannabis pharmacists to best serve the local community patient base.
