The dispensary, which follows MPX’s southwest dispensary staples of copper accents, rustic wood paneling and navy blue walls, is set to welcome upwards of 100 patients during opening week, with trained consultants readily available to advise on all things cannabis. Maryland residents, who are approved medical cannabis patients, will have access to flower, topicals, concentrates and other forms permitted under Maryland regulations.

“The Baltimore community is no stranger to the plant, but now seeks holistic, individualized health care,” said Julie Winter, Senior Vice President of East Coast Operations, MPX. “The array of products and services offered by the Health for Life brand makes the store more than just a medical cannabis dispensary, but rather a reliable brand that patients can go to for consistent medicine and education about the plant as it becomes mainstream.”

The Health for Life dispensary is located in a high-traffic area of Baltimore, Maryland, situated off of North Point Road in the community of Colgate. Within 2 miles of the location sits Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, a teaching hospital within the world renowned John Hopkins Health System. GreenMart MD and MPX’s ‘Health for Life’ dispensary are welcomed and supported by the community leaders of Colgate.
