Medical marijuana operator Surterra Wellness has opened its doors in South Tampa.

Georgia-based Surterra Wellness, which is one of the fastest growing health and wellness companies in the United States, hosted a grand opening on Thursday for its newest location at 4306 South Dale Mabry Hwy. It is Surterra's fifth location in the Tampa Bay area, Kim Hawkes, senior manager of government and public relations, told the Tampa Bay Business Journal.

The 2,200-square-foot storefront offers oral sprays, topical lotions, transdermal patch, vaping pens and now soft gel capsules.

Surterra typically seeks existing structures in medical and/or retail areas for buildout, which takes roughly 20 to 24 weeks, Hawkes said.

Surterra is projected to have 25 centers open statewide by mid-summer. Each store may hire up to 15 team members.
Surterra hosted a grand opening celebration earlier this month for its new location in Brandon, just over 2 miles from Brandon Regional Hospital. 

Hawkes said the company has also selected a location in Bradenton for a new wellness center, but it has not yet revealed the address or when it will open.

Additionally, the company has a 300,000-square-foot grow house in an undisclosed location in Hillsborough County that’s expanding to 500,000 square feet, she said.

The medical marijuana industry is set to be a booming market. Projections by Arcview Market Research show Florida’s medical marijuana market will grow to $1.6 billion and support 400,000 patients by 2020, despite regulatory and legal challenges facing the young industry.
With the passing of allowing medical marijuana to be smoked in Florida, dispensaries now have another opportunity. Surterra is planning to launch a pre-rolled smokable product in the next couple weeks, Hawkes said.
