Medical cannabis dispensary Sunnyside has opened a new retail store in Pinellas County, bringing its total number of shops to 27 in the state and five in the Tampa market.

The new store is at 35098 US Highway 19 N. in Palm Harbor at what was previously a BB&T bank branch.

The new store, like the others, will carry branded products including liquid live resin vapes and live resin concentrates, as well as premium, hand-trimmed flower and live rosin solvent less concentrates; flower, concentrates and vapes; tinctures, oil syringes and topicals from Remedi; and Sunnyside Chews and Mints edibles.

Rolling papers, lighters and books will also be available.

Sunnyside is part of Illinois-based Cresco Labs Inc., a “vertically integrated multistate cannabis” operator that employs a consumer-packaged goods approach to its dealings.

The approach seems to be working. The company currently has 62 stores in seven states. In addition to Tampa, the chain has stores in Bonita Springs and Cape Corals.

And for those who don’t have a shop nearby, the company sells online as well.

The new store, like the others, will serve patients who have a state-issued medical card.
