“We are very excited to join the Ocala, Gainesville, and The Village communities and to bring our premium medical cannabis flower, live rosin, and distillate products to qualified patients throughout Central Florida,” said Brady Cobb, CEO of Bluma Wellness.

The Ocala location is one of five locations the company operates across the state, including retail dispensary and delivery locations in Boynton Beach, St. Petersburg, Jacksonville Beach, and Port St. Lucie, Florida.

The dispensary marks the fifth overall dispensary to come to the Ocala area. In June, Trulieve opened the doors on their new Ocala location along S.R. 200. Earlier in the year, GrowHealthy also opened its first Ocala location along S.R. 200.
