The store will provide a premium consumer experience in a welcoming and comfortable environment.

“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. Spiritleaf’s partnership with Auxly Cannabis Group Inc. also provides stores with world class expertise and additional supply from premium producers.
