“Our goal: to be a knowledgeable and trusted source of recreational cannabis and information on recreational cannabis,” Spiritleaf states.

The store will offer a curated collection of leading cannabis brands. In addition, Spiritleaf’s parent company Inner Spirit Holdings (ISH) is developing its own proprietary products, delivering vertical integration from seed to store.
