We're very proud of the business we've built, of the amazing innovation we've seen in this industry, and of the growth we've been able to achieve organically over the past four years," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "Trulieve has built a foundation of compassionate core values, with strong diversity and inclusion initiatives and a mission to bring the highest quality cannabis products possible to the Trulievers that rely on us, and we look forward to continuing that for years to come."

As we open the doors on our 55th store nationwide, we're incredibly grateful to our dedicated Truliever community for being there every step of the way and we can't wait to celebrate four groundbreaking years all weekend long."
