Pennsylvania’s premier medical cultivator, processor and dispenser, is opening its Plymouth Meeting medical marijuana dispensary. This marks the launch of a patient-focused education and access program that includes guidance on how patients can apply to be part of Pennsylvania’s Medical Marijuana Program.
“We understand patients and healthcare professionals have questions about how medical marijuana will be made available to patients. Ilera Healthcare will continue to focus on patient education, and we will have our team members provide background information, address questions, and guide people through the application process,” said Greg Rochlin, CEO, Ilera Healthcare. “Ilera Healthcare’s medical marijuana dispensary was designed to include meeting space where we can host patient-focused information and education sessions – as well as work with physician, patient and advocate groups to provide information about medical marijuana options, within the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s guidelines.”
As of February 24,the number of people who have applied for state-issued medical marijuana cards totals 23,333. Additionally, 463 physicians have completed Pennsylvania’s training to issue recommendations to patients – which is required before a patient can purchase medical marijuana.
Ilera Healthcare’s Plymouth Meeting dispensary, located at 420 Plymouth Road in Plymouth Meeting, will begin hosting patient access hours, beginning on March 2nd at 1 p.m. and then Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The patient access hours are part of Ilera Healthcare’s mission to provide education to patients, physicians and the community on the industry. Ilera Healthcare’s initial opening focuses on education. Ilera Healthcare’s Grand Opening will be on April 20, when Ilera will be filling recommendations from registered physicians for registered patients and caregivers.
“Ilera is committed to delivering the highest quality marijuana medicines to patients throughout Pennsylvania and that begins with patient education and personalized consultation,” said Osagie Imasogie, Ilera Healthcare’s Chairman. “While we will host patient education programs at our Plymouth Meeting dispensary, Ilera Healthcare’s products will be available across Pennsylvania through partnerships we have established with other dispensaries. We are committed to providing consistent premium marijuana medicines that provide relief and enhance wellness for patients.”
Ilera Healthcare believes that its pharmaceutical-caliber medical marijuana products address the 17 medical conditions approved by the State of Pennsylvania. Ilera Healthcare’s existing product offerings include tinctures, vaporizable oils and topical creams that are designed to produce targeted effects, that can be utilized to address specific conditions in line with physician recommendations.
