AltMed Florida, the fastest growing Medical Marijuana Treatment Center (MMTC) in Florida (source: OMMU), is the first ever to open three dispensaries in 24 hours.
Three new MÜV™ Medical Cannabis Dispensaries will have grand openings in Lutz, Tallahassee and Sebastian:
With 16 dispensaries, AltMed Florida has accelerated its reach and is on pace to open 40 dispensaries statewide. More than 60,000 patients have visited MÜV Dispensaries. MÜV Dispensaries have the second highest market share in the state ahead of multiple companies with twice as many locations.
“We are proud that Florida patients are choosing our dispensaries thanks to our modern open-concept retail experience, professional service and our unmatched product quality,” said AltMed Director of Corporate Affairs Todd Beckwith. “As a Florida owned company, we take our obligation to serve patients across the state very seriously, as exemplified by becoming the first to open three dispensaries in 24 hours. From the Panhandle to Tampa Bay to the central east coast this weekend, and with new dispensaries in the works in every corner of Florida, our team is working tirelessly to give patients local access to our MÜV products throughout the state.”
This Friday, AltMed Florida will open its fourth Tampa Bay area MÜV in Lutz, serving patients in nearby Wesley Chapel and Land O’Lakes, and this Saturday, its first central east coast dispensary opens in Sebastian and the first Panhandle location opens in Tallahassee.
The new Tallahassee dispensary, a former bank building, includes a drive-thru (MÜV-thru) window for added convenience for customers, and is located just off Apalachee Parkway near Governors Square Mall, only a few minutes from the Florida State Capitol.
The new Sebastian MÜV Dispensary, located north of Vero Beach and just east of Interstate 95, allows AltMed to provide further access up and down the east coast - joining dispensaries in Jax Beach, south to Wellington/West Palm and Deerfield… with more locations in development.
During the three grand openings, all licensed Florida medical cannabis patients will receive 25 percent off their entire first purchase and the first 100 patients will receive a MÜV SWAG bag with their purchase. Patients will also be able to order online at muvfl.com for express pickup or delivery after the grand openings.
MÜV Dispensaries offer an extensive selection of award-winning products including flower, pre-rolls, a wide range of vaporizer pens, metered dose inhalers, topicals, oral sprays, patent-pending encapsulation formulations in its Tinctures, 72-Hour Transdermal patches and transdermal gels. MÜV is also recognized for having one of the widest selections of concentrates for patients’ needing macro-dosing options.
“Our dispensaries set the standard for quality products, service and overall patient experience at our current locations and we’re excited to offer our premium MÜV medical cannabis brand to even more patients as we expand our presence across Florida,” said AltMed Florida CEO John Tipton. “Our MÜV dispensaries are unlike any in the state and we’re excited to invite licensed patients who live in or near Lutz, Tallahassee and Sebastian to visit our newest state-of-the-art locations.”
Like AltMed Florida’s 13 existing locations (Apollo Beach, Clearwater, Deerfield Beach, Fort Myers, Gainesville, Jacksonville/San Marco, Jacksonville Beach, Lakeland, Longwood/Orlando, Downtown Orlando, Sarasota, Tampa and Wellington/West Palm), the new MÜV Dispensaries stand out from others because they are designed as a premium experience: think Apple Store, with a modern, open-concept design and expert staff with extensive training.
The MÜV brand already has a wide following in other legal medical cannabis markets, including Arizona, where it has won five Best of Arizona medical cannabis awards. MÜV products are sold exclusively in Florida at MÜV dispensaries because, unlike other states, Florida does not allow wholesale of product between license holders - only products that license holders make themselves can be sold in their dispensaries.

AltMed Florida is on pace to open 40 MÜV Medical Cannabis Dispensaries across the state, all supplied by its 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art cultivation facility.
The MÜV™ brand of medical cannabis infused products launched in Arizona in 2016 and quickly gained international attention and recognition. MÜV Dispensaries by AltMed Florida was formed a year later through the partnership of AltMed Enterprises and Plants of Ruskin, a multi-generational Florida agricultural leader. Through continual research and development, MÜV has received multiple patents for its award-winning MÜV Products line that provides quality, consistent and reliable medical cannabis products to patients at all 29 locations (one in Arizona muv-az.com, 28 in Florida muvfl.com, and more added each month). Patients are encouraged to place reservations online at muvfl.com for in-store pickup, order for delivery, or visit any one of the 27 MÜV Dispensaries for alternative medical cannabis medicine you can trust.
With a focus on quality and attention to detail, Plants of Ruskin has more than 35 years of experience in providing seedlings to farmers for vegetable and medical product production. Plants of Ruskin founders, the Dickman Family, are 4th generation farmers with a long history of working in conjunction with the University of Florida, including an endowed chair specifically dedicated to plant improvement.
