New Medical Marijuana Dispensary Opens in Friendship District of Pittsburgh | News | Pittsburgh
Medical marijuana has grown steadily in Pennsylvania, and now a new business is entering the Commonwealth: goodblend. The cannabis company has opened a medical marijuana dispensary on Baum Boulevard in the Friendship neighborhood of Pittsburgh. This is goodblend’s first medical marijuana dispensary in Pennsylvania.
It will also be one of the very few truly urban medical marijuana dispensaries in the Pittsburgh area, with most dispensaries concentrated in the suburbs or in places with large parking lots near freeways. In fact, Pittsburgh is set to open a drive-thru Robinson dispensary soon.
Elizabeth Conway, the director of goodblend Pennsylvania, is very happy that Pittsburgh is the first place to have a goodblend dispensary, not only because of the company’s partnership with the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, but also because the location of the dispensary in the heart of East Pittsburgh.
“The reason for the name goodblend is that it is accessible, and we welcome any patient along their journey to wellness,” says Conway. “People can stop on the way back. We just like to be in the mix. Stop by the market, stop for dinner, then stop by goodblend. It’s really very lively here, being in a lively area was very important to us.
In Pittsburgh proper, goodblend will join four other medical cannabis dispensaries. The goodblend dispensary will be located under the Baumhaus building at 5502 Baum Blvd.
Conway says the dispensary will offer “everything Pennsylvania allows” in terms of medical marijuana products. There will be topicals, capsules, tinctures and inhalable vaporized cannabis products. The first opening day of goodblend on Baum Boulevard is Saturday July 17th. A production for goodblend is located on the north side of Pittsburgh, in the sprawling 120,000 square foot facility at Chateau.
In addition to hoping that medical marijuana patients in Pennsylvania will take advantage of Goodblend’s Pittsburgh location, Conway also says the dispensary is looking for workers. She says there are jobs available in marketing, healthcare, science, retail and customer service.
