ROCHELLE PARK, NJ – And they’re off. New Jersey’s legal weed industry is just three days old and demand in already soaring across the state. In Rochelle Park, Ascend Wellness Holdings, Inc. operates their Ascend dispensary at 174 Route 17 North.

The company was granted a recent approval by the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission (“CRC”) as one of seven Class 5 Retailer Licenses now permitted to sell recreational cannabis to consumers in New Jersey. To ensure adequate access for both medical and recreational visitors, consumers over 21 can now access a separate adult-use menu featuring a wide selection of products, including flower, edibles, vapes and more.

“To provide a streamlined retail experience, Ascend Rochelle Park will require adult-use customers to reserve a 20-minute shopping appointment at ahead of visits,” the company said. “To preserve the same excellent service level our medical patients have become accustomed to, Ascend will now provide medical patients with a host of dedicated services, including the dispensary’s medical express lane, direct access to the front entrance, private consultation rooms, and designated parking spots.”

“Ascend Rochelle Park has served thousands of New Jersey medical patients since opening last year,” said Chris Melillo, Chief Revenue Officer of AWH. “Existing patients can rest assured that they remain a priority and will continue to enjoy our top-tier services without disruption as we welcome adult-use consumers to the New Jersey Ascend community. We are excited to serve all New Jersey cannabis consumers and look forward to commencing recreational sales in our other locations across the Garden State.
