EDGEWATER, Fla. – For the second time in a week, a medical marijuana dispensary is opening in Central Florida.

Trulieve, on Boston Road in Edgewater, is opening Thursday. The Volusia County dispensary is the first of its kind in the Space Coast area.

The company said patients will find an assortment of low-THC and high-THC products with various delivery methods, including capsules, vaporizers and tinctures.

"Our goal is to help as many patients as we can, so we’re thrilled we can now better serve our patients in Edgewater and Volusia County,” Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers said. "Opening new dispensary locations is vital to ensuring faster delivery times and increasing patient access. We will continue to open more locations throughout the rest of the year."

Trulieve currently delivers statewide and has five other dispensaries, in Clearwater, Miami, Pensacola, Tallahassee and Tampa.

Edgewater is located south of New Smyrna Beach and north of Brevard County.

More than 70 percent of voters approved the use of medical marijuana in Florida last year.

Knox Medical, Orlando's first licensed dispensary, opened to the public last week.
