Columbia Care Expands Into San Diego With Dispensary Opening

Multi-state cannabis company, Columbia Care Inc. has announced the launch of a west-coast expansion this week which includes the grand opening of a new dispensary in the Pacific Beach neighborhood of San Diego.

The dispensary’s four-day grand opening celebration will take place from Wednesday, July 3 through Saturday, July 6 and will feature a variety of food, activities, and demos from companies like Lowell Smokes, Bloom Farms, and Raw Garden.

“We are thrilled to be the first and only licensed cannabis dispensary operator in Pacific Beach,” says Columbia Care CEO, Nicholas Vita. “California is a $5.5 billion cannabis market; it’s about time that Californians have access to the best products and an elevated, more personalized experience.”

In the name of service and convenience, Columbia Care expects to offer customers home delivery through its CC@Home service and access to the company’s CNC Card, the nation’s first legal credit card for cannabis purchases.

“California consumers have led this national movement towards plant-based, cannabis solutions to living well,” says Vitas. “We are proud to introduce our approach to improving lives and disrupt one of the most competitive cannabis markets in the world.”

As part of the company’s westward expansion, Columbia Care also plans to complete construction on a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Southern California by the end of August.
