Theory Wellness to open 1st dispensary in New Jersey’s state capital

After years of planning in close partnership with municipal leaders, the Garden State’s capital will become much greener. Theory Wellness will open Trenton’s first cannabis dispensary for medical sales April 25.

Located at 461 New York Ave., a redevelopment district right off Route 1, the company will begin with medical cannabis sales only, but plans to expand its offering to recreational sales in the coming weeks. As part of its commitment to the city, Theory will be engaging locally with nonprofits, including a generous annual donation to drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs, and will be supporting the city through added employment, tourism and tax revenue.

Theory said it has invested significantly in the local area, redeveloping a vacant building, providing significant green space and adding ample parking for easy and convenient access for customers.

“The planning and development of this project spans several years, and we’re grateful to the city for their continued partnership in making this vision a reality,” Brandon Pollock, CEO of Theory Wellness, said. “We’ve built a reputation on the East Coast by offering a very high level of service to our customers, and we are excited to bring our experience and hospitality to New Jersey.”

“We are excited to open the doors to the Capital City for Theory Wellness as Trenton’s first medicinal marijuana dispensary. This project ushers in a new era of compassionate care and community partnerships. Together with Theory Wellness, it is a testament to the economic growth and the well-being for our residents of this great City,” Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora said.

Theory sources unique genetics and creates premium products that include flower, concentrates, edibles and infusions, and brands.
