In addition, Beyond Hello™ Alexandria is strategically positioned near the ‘Beltway’ with easy highway access, and is conveniently located within a 15-minute drive to approximately 400,000 people.”

This new location will offer dry leaf, concentrates, cartridges, tinctures, topicals, edibles, capsules, pills and various ancillary products such as approved batteries and devices, including The Lab™, The Bank, Sèchè and Tasteology.
Commonwealth of Virginia Modernizes Medical Cannabis Program
As of Friday, July 1st, patients were no longer required to register with the Virginia Board of Pharmacy. Virginia patients can now visit a registered practitioner, receive a written certification to participate in Virginia’s medical cannabis program and immediately visit a licensed dispensary to purchase a medical cannabis product in much the same way patients fill conventional prescriptions. Since the patient registration process requirement has been removed, the Company has seen a 2.3x increase in patient sign-ups in the first three weeks of July as compared to the entire month of June.
