AltMed Florida, one of the fastest growing MMTCs in the state (source: OMMU), continues its statewide expansion with a three-day grand opening May 15 - May 17 of its newest MÜV™ Medical Cannabis Dispensary at 5674 Tuscola Blvd in North Port.

The grand opening is staggered over three days for crowd mitigation (see opening specials here). Patients are encouraged to order at muvfl.com for express pickup or delivery to help limit crowds.

With the North Port opening on the busy Tamiami Trail next to Lowe’s, AltMed Florida now has 20 MÜV Dispensaries and is on pace to open 40 across the state.

“In our tireless efforts to serve Floridians in all parts of our home state, we’re excited to bring our premium dispensary experience to patients in the busy North Port, Venice and Port Charlotte area,” said AltMed Director of Corporate Affairs Todd Beckwith.

Deemed an essential service during the pandemic, AltMed Florida has been able to maintain and actually expand its workforce with additional teams coming onboard at each of its nine new dispensaries this year. With higher demand for products from 20 dispensaries, AltMed has also generated additional construction employment and staffing with the expansion of its 200,000 sq-ft Apollo Beach cultivation facility.

The newest state-of-the-art MÜV™ North Port dispensary, just north of Port Charlotte, will provide award winning products to medical cannabis patients in Charlotte County and southern Sarasota County.

During the North Port opening, staggered over three-days for crowd mitigation, all licensed Florida medical cannabis patients will receive a one-time use only, one per patient, 25 percent off their entire first purchase.

The North Port MÜV Dispensary will offer an extensive selection of award-winning products including flower, pre-rolls, a wide range of vaporizer pens, metered dose inhalers, topicals, oral sprays, patent-pending encapsulation formulations in its Tinctures, 72-Hour Transdermal patches and transdermal gels. MÜV is also has one of the widest selections of concentrates for patients’ needing macro-dosing options.

“Our dispensaries set the standard for quality products, service and overall patient experience and we’re excited to offer our premium MÜV medical cannabis brand to even more Florida patients in Charlotte, Sarasota and DeSoto counties,” said AltMed Florida CEO John Tipton.

Like AltMed Florida’s 19 other locations (Apollo Beach, Clearwater, Deerfield Beach, Fort Myers, Gainesville, Jacksonville/San Marco, Jacksonville Beach, Lady Lake, Lakeland, Longwood/Orlando, Lutz, Downtown Orlando, Ormond Beach, Pensacola, Sebastian, Sarasota, Tallahassee, Tampa and Wellington/West Palm), the new North Port MÜV Dispensary stands out because it’s designed as a premium experience – think Apple Store, with a modern open-concept design and expert staff with extensive training.

The MÜV brand already has a wide following in other legal medical cannabis markets, including Arizona, where it has won five Best of Arizona medical cannabis awards. MÜV products are sold exclusively in Florida at MÜV dispensaries because, unlike other states, Florida does not allow wholesale of product between license holders - only products that license holders make themselves can be sold in their dispensaries.

AltMed Florida is on pace to open 40 MÜV Medical Cannabis Dispensaries across the state, all supplied by its 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art cultivation facility.
