Sensi Medical Cannabis House by Aphria will sell proprietary strains and “high-end” weed accessories, and will also include a consumption lounge

Canadian licensed producer (LP) Aphria is opening its first retail store in Jamaica.

The cannabis behemoth said its subsidiary company Marigold Projects has been licensed to sell the drug via Jamaica’s Cannabis Licensing Authority. The shop, known as Sensi Medical Cannabis House and located at Peter Tosh Square in Kingston, will include a cannabis consumption lounge and sell proprietary cannabis strains and “high-end” cannabis accessories.

“The approval of Marigold’s first Herb House signals an exciting time for Aphria. We believe that there is tremendous opportunity in Jamaica from a domestic and international perspective and we look forward to bringing Sensi products to the market,” said Aphria’s interim CEO Irwin D. Simon in a news release.

“Receiving this licence is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication in growing our Caribbean and LATAM business as we provide high-quality cannabis products in regions. Aphria will continue to execute on our business plan to create long-term value, sales growth, and profitably in Canada and internationally,” Simon added.

Marigold is currently awaiting licensing approval in the hopes of opening four more similar stores across the country in Negril, Portmore, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.

The shop is expected to open its doors sometime later this month.
