Green Thumb Industries Inc. (GTI) (CSE: GTII) (OTCQX: GTBIF), a leading national cannabis consumer packaged goods company and owner of Rise™ Dispensaries, today announced it will open Rise Meadville in Pennsylvania, its 56th retail location in the nation, on March 31. Profits from the first day of sales will be donated to Women’s Services, which strives to meet the needs of children and adults of Crawford County who are in crisis due to domestic violence, sexual violence or homelessness.

“Our team is excited to introduce additional Pennsylvanians to the Rise™ retail experience and our selection of high-quality branded cannabis products,” said Green Thumb Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ben Kovler. “Women’s Services is doing incredible work on behalf of families in crisis situations who need shelter and support services and we are grateful to donate to the cause.”

Bruce Harlan, Executive Director for Women’s Services said: “Women’s Services welcomes Rise™ Dispensaries to Crawford County and the greater Meadville community.  Their decision to share a percentage of first-day sales to our organization is evidence of their eagerness to support our vision to create ‘communities free from violence.’ Local charities rely on private citizens and the business sector to help sustain their missions. Women’s Services is proud to have Rise™ Dispensaries as an additional stakeholder and looks forward to working with them in the years to come.”

In addition to Rise Meadville, there are Rise™ stores in the following locations in Pennsylvania: Chambersburg, Cranberry, Duncansville, Erie (Lake), Erie (Peach), Hermitage, King of Prussia, Latrobe, Mechanicsburg, Monroeville, New Castle, Carlisle, Steelton and York, the last three of which are licensed to KW Ventures. Green Thumb entered the Pennsylvania market in 2017 and operates a manufacturing facility in Danville where the company produces its branded products including Rythm premium flower and vapes and Doctor Solomon’s medical-grade drops and lotions.
