Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. announced that it had received its hybrid producer license from Connecticut’s Department of Consumer Protection to supply cannabis to the state’s adult-use market.
Consumers over the age of 21 are now able to start purchasing Curaleaf products in dispensaries approved for adult use sales across the state. Products vary by dispensary and include Curaleaf whole flower, pre-rolls, Select Elite vapes and Curaleaf’s breakthrough vape hardware, Cliq by Select. Curaleaf team members participated in onsite event activations and celebrations at each of the approved adult-use dispensaries on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
Curaleaf serves patients at its four Connecticut dispensaries in Stamford, Conn., Hartford, Conn., Milford, Conn., and Groton, Conn., and anticipates welcoming adult-use customers in the near future, pending regulatory approvals. Curaleaf will continue to prioritize patient care for individuals registered in the state’s medical marijuana program during this period of expansion.
“We are proud to provide Curaleaf products across the state as Connecticut celebrates this important milestone in opening a safe and equitable adult-use cannabis market,” said Matt Darin, CEO of Curaleaf. “We commend Governor Lamont and the state legislature for their leadership in the recent expungement of low-level cannabis convictions for over 40,000 residents as part of the state’s legalization measure.”
Connecticut is now one of 21 states to legalize adult-use cannabis sales in the U.S. The state is expected to generate over $215 million in revenue in the first year of adult-use sales.
