Sunnyside, a new medical marijuana dispensary, is opening in Tallahassee Tuesday morning. 

The dispensary, at 302 N. Monroe St., is hosting a grand opening at 10 a.m. that will feature a ribbon-cutting. 

The 1,500-square-foot store will offer products from the Chicago-based medical marijuana company Cresco Labs' One Plant brand, which includes vapes, lotions and balms. 

This marks the 11th Sunnyside store in the Sunshine State, said Cris Rivera, the Florida regional president of Cresco Labs. 

According to Rivera, the small storefront on North Monroe was purchased by One Plant in 2019. However, before the company broke ground, Cresco Labs bought One Plant's parent company in April and decided to rebrand each store to Sunnyside — including the Tallahassee location.

The modern, sleek look of the black and yellow Sunnyside store is part of Cresco Labs' goal, Rivera said, to normalize and professionalize cannabis use. 

To receive service, including online orders and next-day deliveries, patients must show their medical marijuana patient ID card issued by the state of Florida. Online orders can be placed through the website, and deliveries can be placed by phone at (877) 395-1009.

"I am about to get on a plane to Tallahassee and just can't wait get our products to the city and the rest of the Florida Panhandle," Rivera said. "I am so excited."
