If a patient walks into a medical marijuana dispensary today in Florida, the variety that meets them can be a bit intimidating.

There are different strains of marijuana that have different effects. There are different delivery methods ranging from dried plant material to concentrates of tetrahydrocannabinol to food products infused with marijuana.

A New York-based company that operates across 18 different jurisdictions in America and also in the European Union aims to make that process less daunting with the introduction of technology at its dispensaries.

One of Columbia Care’s dispensaries is located in Sarasota at 6979 S. Tamiami Trail.

On Wednesday that location rebranded to Cannbist and integrated the technology at its Florida locations.
