Marijuana dispensary makes good on starting promise

Posted

When TerraVida Holistic Center was looking for approval to set up shop in Sellersville, proprietors of the medical marijuana dispensary pledged that it would be part of their core mission to give back to the community.

TerraVida is making good on the promise – and poised for expansion at its North Main Street location.

At a Monday meeting, Sellersville Borough Council publicly thanked TerraVida for donations the dispensary recently made to help the community.

One donation to the West Rockhill-Sellersville Joint Recreation Committee – totaling $11,850 – will pay for a zip line to be installed at Holiday House Pool. “The zip line, called AquaZip’N, will be a new feature that will enhance the experience for pool patrons,” said Sellersville Borough Manager David Rivet.

The other donation, of $2,572.50, was to Sellersville Borough. The money will pay for the town’s Christmas decorations. “TerraVida has been a great addition to the community,” Rivet said.

Checks for the donations were presented at the Monday meeting.

“A big part of who we are at TerraVida is about giving back, most especially to our neighbors,” said Cathie Cashman, TerraVida’s vice president of operations. “TerraVida feels so fortunate to have been welcomed by the Sellersville community. Not only by patients who walk through our door, but by the community at large. It is a wonderful town to be a part of.”

Demand for the cannabis products and compassionate service that TerraVida provides in Sellersville has been increasing. The company recently hired more employees at the location in advance of a planned expansion, which is on track to see 200 square feet added.

The additional area will be for more registers and a bigger dispensary counter. TerraVida aims to complete the expansion by the end of February.

Patient count continues to grow.

“We have a diverse patient group in Sellersville based on age, but we still see the biggest growth in our over-50 crowd,” said Cashman. “TerraVida has a wonderful atmosphere for any patient, whether a seasoned cannabis user or someone who is brand new to the program.”

TerraVida has additional locations in Abington and Malvern. In all, the company employs about 130 people at its dispensaries and corporate office.
