PA Options for Wellness (“PA Options for Wellness”, DBA “Vytal Options” or the “Company”), a leading provider of medical cannabis products in the Pennsylvania medical cannabis market, announced today the opening of two new medical marijuana dispensaries, bringing their retail footprint to a total of six locations throughout Pennsylvania.

The first of the two new dispensaries to open will be Kennett Square, located at 716 West Baltimore Pike in Delaware County, PA. The Kennett Square location will open to patients on Monday, Oct. 17. The second location, located in State College, at 1653 North Atherton Street, will open to patients on Monday, Oct. 31. Both locations will feature on-site consultations, curbside delivery and an interactive pre-order menu with each dispensary open six days a week, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“Vytal Options, a PA Options for Wellness medical marijuana dispensary, is excited to bring our excellent patient service as well as quality products to the State College and Kennett Square areas,” CEO and founder Thomas A. Trite said in a statement. “We were one of the first three medical marijuana Clinical Registrants approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Health to conduct research. After undergoing an extensive review process, we were selected by Penn State University and their College of Medicine to collaborate and research medical marijuana.”

To celebrate the grand openings, each location will kick off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 9 a.m. ET, with members of the Chamber of Business, Penn State Research, and Balanced Veterans Network. A partnership with grower/processer FarmaceuticalRX has also been developed to support the dispensary openings.  A proprietary strain “Keystone OG” was created with the processing team at FarmaceuticalRX along with members of Vytal Options marketing and product development teams. The first 100 patients at each location will receive an exclusive, limited edition “Keystone OG” t-shirt to celebrate the collaboration. In addition, many of the state’s top Medical Marijuana Grower Processers will be on hand at both locations, educating patients and handing out promotional materials. In addition, PA Options for Wellness will commemorate its latest dispensary openings by making a charitable contribution to organizations within the State College and Kennett Square communities.
