Award Winning MÜV™ to Open on the Emerald Coast, Marking its Third Medical Cannabis Dispensary in the Florida Panhandle

AltMed Florida, one of the fastest growing medical cannabis companies in Florida, continues its statewide expansion with a three-day opening, starting Friday October 2, 2020 at 10 a.m. CDT for its newest MÜV™ Medical Cannabis Dispensary located at 1246 Eglin Parkway in Shalimar.

Eglin Parkway is one of the main arterials in the Shalimar/Fort Walton Beach market. MÜV’s 26th Florida dispensary is located minutes from Eglin Air Force Base, the largest air force base in the free world.

“Our third Panhandle dispensary is in a great location - easily accessible from Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Wright, Niceville and Ocean City,” said John Tipton, CEO of AltMed Florida. “We also know this is a very popular vacation destination. Now when Florida patients visit the area, they can access their medications.”

This MÜV dispensary is an old bank building and includes a MÜV-through (drive-through) which offers expedited checkout for express orders. It’s the fourth MÜV to feature a drive-through.

During the opening, staggered over three-days (Oct.2 – Oct.4) for crowd mitigation, all licensed Florida medical cannabis patients will receive a one-time use only, one per patient, 25 percent off their entire first purchase. Patients are also encouraged to order at muvfl.com for express pickup or delivery to help reduce heavy traffic.

Deemed an essential service during the pandemic, AltMed Florida has been able to expand its workforce to over 600 employees with additional teams coming onboard at each of its 15 new dispensaries this year. With higher demand for products from 26 total dispensaries, AltMed has also generated additional construction employment and staffing with the expansion of its massive cultivation facility in Apollo Beach.

The newest state-of-the-art MÜV dispensary will offer an extensive selection of award-winning products including flower, pre-rolls, a wide range of vaporizer pens, metered dose inhalers, topicals and oral sprays; along with patented encapsulation formulations in its EnCaps™ capsules, tinctures, 72-Hour transdermal patches and transdermal gels. MÜV also has one of the widest selections of concentrates for patients needing macro-dosing options.

Like AltMed Florida’s 25 other locations (Apollo Beach, Bradenton, Bonita Springs, Clearwater, Deerfield Beach, Fort Myers, Gainesville, Jacksonville/San Marco, Jacksonville Beach, Lady Lake, Lakeland, Longwood/Orlando, Lutz, North Port, downtown Orlando, Ormond Beach, Pensacola, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Tallahassee, Tampa, Wellington, West Palm Beach) the new Shalimar MÜV stands out because it’s 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 state-of-the-art cultivation facility.
