Monroe County welcomed a new business to the budding medical marijuana industry in the Poconos with the grand opening of Beyond/Hello on Wednesday .
Located on North 9th Street in Stroudsburg next to the Arlington Diner, the shop officially opened its doors to patients at 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, but business was already booming before the ribbon had been cut — over 40 orders had already been submitted for medicinal cannabis prior to the opening.
Jushi Holdings, multi-state operation that owns Beyond/Hello through their subsidiary Franklin Bioscience, stated that the Stroudsburg location marks its 16th Beyond/Hello store and its 25th retail store overall in the commonwealth.
Beyond/Hello focuses on the treatment of numerous physical and mental health issues with medical cannabis, which is made available in a variety of forms and concentrations.
Jennifer Freeby, general manager for the Stroudsburg store, said that she and her fellow employees are eager to provide customers with the relief they need from any medical issue.
“It just feels so amazing. I know we’re going to help so many people in the area. I love this company, I love what we stand for, and I can’t wait for our patients to feel that same energy that we are bringing here,”
