The Return of Benzinga’s Cannabis Finance Conferences!
Suzan Nickelson is the first black woman and the first woman to acquire a cannabis license in New Jersey. Suzan is the first black woman to own and operate a medical marijuana dispensary in New Jersey after being granted a license in the state’s 2019 RFP round.
Holistic Solutions, which will be run by Suzan, will be the first and only dispensary in Waterford, New Jersey, a suburb of Philadelphia. New Jersey medical marijuana patients can get compassionate care and informational resources at the Alternative Treatment Center.
which boasts over 4,000 square feet of retail space, 11 point-of-sale stations for streamlined purchasing, a private consultation room for discussions with onsite medical professionals, and a drive-thru window. Patients at any point in their cannabis journey will have access to a carefully curated selection of THC and CBD goods.
such as flowers, pre-rolls, edibles, tinctures, vaporizers, concentrates, ingestible, topicals, and accessories. There will be a lot of shelf space dedicated to cannabis products owned by women and people of color, such as Miss Grass and But-A-Cake.
Like my mother and grandmother before her, I think cannabis is a sacred plant that God gave to humans so they can be healed. Unfortunately, the War on Drugs had a disproportionately negative impact on communities of color. That’s why I worked so hard to launch Holistic Solutions,” Suzan Nickelson explained.
“The women in my family have passed down generational knowledge of working with various herbs for healing and spirituality to me, and I look forward to using that knowledge to run my own cannabis business so that others can understand just how powerful this plant can be in the pursuit of wellness and healing.”
Eastbound Collective helps launch Holistic Solutions as a minority investor. In April of 2022, former Northeast Regional President for a major MSO Patrik Jonsson created Eastbound Collective. Soft opening hours for Holistic Solutions begin this week and continue through February 9th. The dispensary’s regular hours are Monday through Friday, 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The dispensary’s new hours are 8:30 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Saturday and 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on Sundays, starting on the 10th of February. At first, only in-store pickup and drive-thru service will be offered, but by Spring 2023, customers will also have the option of having their orders delivered to their doorstep.
