Columbia Care Inc. (NEO: CCHW) (CSE:CCHW) (OTCQX:CCHWF) (FSE:3LP) said Thursday it has obtained approval from the Cannabis Control Commission and the Boston Cannabis Board to launch operations as Cannabist at 21 Milk Street in downtown Boston, its co-located adult-use and medical dispensary previously known as Patriot Care.
The move follows the company’s recent announcement that it has obtained approval from the New York State Department of Health to start operations at its new facility in eastern Long Island.

“We are excited to bring the true Cannabist experience to Bostonians,” said Jesse Channon, chief growth officer of Columbia Care. “We have received a positive response from customers and patients who experienced this transformation at our Lowell location and look forward to offering the same ‘higher experience’ to the cannabis community in the city of Boston. We’re incredibly grateful to the Cannabis Control Commission, Boston Cannabis
