The Tampa Bay area’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened Thursday in Clearwater.
The Truelieve facility opened at 24761 US 19 North. The facility sells low-THC, and, what is described as “whole plant, high-THC” medical cannabis. Patients need a doctor’s permission and to suffer from certain medical conditions to receive the THC.
Patients can find a variety of products in the cannabis dispensary. There are a variety of products infused with oil from pot plants, including capsules, droppers, an oral syringe and a vaporizer.
It’s illegal to smoke these products.
Renee Petro’s son Brandon has found certain kinds of marijuana help stop seizures, which are caused by a rare disease. Renee Petro is hopeful this dispensary is just a start in the movement supporting medical marijuana. While they won’t be placing an order because of the types of products that have helped him, this mom is glad to see the dispensary opening.
