TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MPX Bioceutical Corporation (“MPX” or the “Company”) (CSE: MPX; OTC: MPXEF) today announced that it opened its new Health for Life dispensary in Baltimore, Maryland which is located at 6807 Rolling Mill Rd Baltimore, Maryland 21224. The dispensay is operated by MPX’s indirect wholly-owned subsidiary, S8 Management LLC, through its management agreement with GreenMart of Maryland, LLC (“GreenMart MD”), which is authorized to operate and sell medical cannabis products in Maryland. This is the Company’s second dispensary in Maryland, following the opening of its flagship Health for Life dispensary in Bethesda, in August 2018. Health for Life Baltimore is open to patients Sunday through Saturday. Operating hours can be found in the Health for Life website.
The dispensary, which follows MPX’s southwest dispensary staples of copper accents, rustic wood paneling and navy blue walls, is set to welcome upwards of 100 patients during opening week, with trained consultants readily available to advise on all things cannabis. Maryland residents, who are approved medical cannabis patients, will have access to flower, topicals, concentrates and other forms permitted under Maryland regulations.
The Baltimore community is no stranger to the plant, but now seeks holistic, individualized health care. The array of products and services offered by the Health for Life brand makes the store more than just a medical cannabis dispensary, but rather a reliable brand that patients can go to for consistent medicine and education about the plant as it becomes mainstream.
