STAMFORD, CT — Fine Fettle, a medical marijuana dispensary based in Connecticut, will open its third location in the state on Monday at 12 Research Drive in the Glenbrook section of Stamford.
With Stamford, Willimantic and Newington, Fine Fettle and its affiliates now own and operate three of the 18 dispensaries in Connecticut, along with cultivation, processing and retail in Massachusetts, and processing in Rhode Island. Fine Fettle also holds a license in Georgia.
Fine Fettle acquired a license given by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection in Storrs last year. At the time of acquisition, Fine Fettle requested a change of location to the department, which approved its movement of the license from Storrs to Stamford.
“Being our home state and now operating three of 18 licenses, we could not be more excited. We always felt that Fairfield County was an underserved population for the medical marijuana community. To open here and bring our brand and customer service is a huge step for us,” said Fine Fettle CEO Richard Carbray in a news release.
“As one of very few local operators left in Connecticut, we care immensely about this state and our community. We try and bring a focus and purpose to every patient interaction, but also be an educational and support leader regarding the medical benefits of marijuana.”
The Stamford location is 5,200 square feet, and is 100 percent secured with a state-of-the-art security system and 360-degree camera coverage. The dispensary will be managed by pharmacists, offering one-on-one consultations to all new patients. The store will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
A recording for the phone number to the new Stamford dispensary encourages those interested in joining the state’s medical marijuana program to stop by and speak with a pharmacist. A menu for preorders is already online. For more information, click here.
Recreational marijuana was legalized in Connecticut last June. Retail sales are expected to begin in Connecticut later this year. The sate Department of Consumer Protection recently began accepting applications for adult-use cannabis establishments, according to NBC Connecticut.
Some towns, like neighboring Greenwich, have prohibited marijuana sales for the time being.
