The Ocala location is Trulieve's 52nd location in the United States, 50 of which are located in the Company's home state of Florida.
Near downtown Ocala, the dispensary supports the Company's mission to expand and ensure safe, reliable patient access statewide. It also joins Trulieve's 49 other dispensaries statewide, including in nearby Gainesville, Lady Lake, and Daytona Beach.

In line with policies that have been adopted in all stores and those recently enacted by the State of Florida, all visitors will be required to wear masks inside the dispensary and only patients and their registered caregivers will be allowed inside at this time.
"Opening our fiftieth store in our home state of Florida is something we've been looking forward to as a company for a long time and we're excited to do so in a community like Ocala. We are incredibly proud of the business we are building and to have done so organically at this scale within Florida. Trulieve is based on strong financial fundamentals, a focus on our core values including diversity and inclusion through investing in our communities, and our mission to deliver the highest quality cannabis products to our Trulievers who rely on us. Our Trulievers have been there with us every step of the way as we have built our brand," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "We have a great store pipeline ahead for continued growth and we look forward to bringing innovative, natural, and reliable products to Florida's patients for a long time to come."
To commemorate the brand new dispensary, all patients — from those new to Trulieve to our strong Truliever community — will be eligible for a 25% in-store discount at the Ocala location on opening day.
