Multi-state cannabis company C3 Industries is expanding its operational footprint with the opening of its first retail location in New Jersey.

The new dispensary, High Profile Lakehurst, is C3’s 24th dispensary nationwide. It launched operations Wednesday.

A grand opening celebration will be held at 10 a.m. March 15, through St. Patrick’s Day weekend, featuring product specials, vendor tables and food trucks.

High Profile Lakehurst will offer competitive pricing and discounts relative to the competition in the area. Shoppers can also take advantage of High Profile’s everyday neighborhood discounts, such as savings for seniors, veterans, medical card holders and cannabis industry workers.

“The opening of our High Profile Lakehurst dispensary marks our entrance into the New Jersey cannabis market and the fifth state where High Profile is delivering high-quality, accessible cannabis offerings,” Ankur Rungta, co-founder and CEO of C3 Industries, said. “We are elated to begin serving the people of Lakehurst as well as communities across Ocean County and Central Jersey. We look forward to bringing more consumers across the country High Profile’s exceptional customer service, unique retail experiences and high-quality cannabis products at an accessible price point.”

Located in Ocean County at 145 Route 70, Lakehurst, C3’s High Profile Lakehurst is 20 minutes southwest of Lakewood and Brick townships, 15 minutes west of Toms River and Manchester townships, and only minutes from the Lakehurst Maxfield Field and Lakehurst Historical Museum. The new dispensary is also conveniently located along the route from Philadelphia to popular Jersey Shore destinations such as Seaside Heights and Island Beach State Park, which are 25 minutes away.

High Profile Lakehurst customers can shop a wide selection of highly curated premium cannabis strains and products, including bulk-bundle purchasing options for flower, prerolls, edibles, concentrates, vape cartridges, tinctures, topicals and gummies. The new dispensary boasts a knowledgeable, friendly staff who are passionate about cannabis and cater to both seasoned enthusiasts and first-time consumers, delivering personalized recommendations, educational insights and a positive shopping experience.

Rungta added: “With shelves consistently stocked with the industry’s best brands and products, the High Profile team is set to become the quintessential destination for Central Jersey communities and beyond. Today marks an exciting moment for our company, and we look forward to positively contributing to the burgeoning cannabis culture in New Jersey.”

Additionally, High Profile Lakehurst is offering patrons to enroll in its “High Roller Loyalty” program, in which members have the ability to earn points on every dollar they spend, then cash out whenever they are ready. High Roller members also have the ability to earn 50 free points upon signing up, along with early access to special events and offers, referral perks, double points on Tuesdays and members-only bonus discounts.
