NORWOOD, Mass., April 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MariMed Inc. (“MariMed”) (CSE: MRMD) (OTCQX: MRMD), a leading multi-state cannabis operator focused on improving lives every day, today announced the closing of its acquisition of Allgreens Dispensary, LLC on April 9, 2024. The approval of the license transfer by the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation, and subsequent closing of the acquisition, allows MariMed to fully consolidate the financial results of the Company’s Thrive-branded dispensary in Casey, Illinois, which had previously been operated under a Managed Services Agreement.

Thrive Casey is the only dispensary in Clark County, Illinois, 30 miles west of Terre Haute, Indiana. Thrive Casey is located at 912 N. State Highway 49, near the intersection of state Highway 49 and U.S. Interstate 70. The dispensary should benefit from attracting the thousands of tourists who annually visit Casey to see the 30 “World’s Largest” and “Big Things” on display throughout the city. They include the World’s Largest Rocking Chair and Mailbox.

The Company continues to look for additional retail locations in Illinois, where adult-use cannabis sales exceeded $1.6 billion last year. Current Illinois cannabis regulations allow an operator to own up to 10 dispensaries. MariMed also recently became vertical in Illinois, opening a craft grow and processing facility in Mt. Vernon in December. MariMed now distributes most of its products at Thrive dispensaries and wholesales its products to more than 100 other dispensaries throughout the state. Thrive Casey will offer a curated selection of products across its award-winning brand portfolio, including Betty’s Eddies fruit chews, Bubby’s Baked soft-baked goods, Vibations drink mixes, and the full suite of its InHouse branded products.
