ANJA Life LLC, a minority-owned recreational dispensary in Highland Park, has been granted its conditional adult-use cannabis dispensary license for New Jersey.

“This is a dream come true for us. We are thrilled to create an equitable and meaningful impact in the cannabis industry in New Jersey. We look forward to welcoming customers across the state and strengthening community partnerships in this emerging market,” Julio Casado, CEO of ANJA Life, said.

ANJA dispensary’s planned launch is for the first quarter of 2023, and it has taken the first steps to achieve this goal, including securing its location at 225 Woodbridge Ave. and applying for municipal approval. ANJA is excited at the prospect of opening in Highland Park and sees this community as the best home for the ANJA brand and team.

ANJA will partner with the local Highland Park community to educate the public on proper cannabis use and destigmatize the plants’ use in adults 21 years of age and older. ANJA believes that all consumers should have proper education on the benefits — and the risks — of the plant.
