DORADO, Puerto Rico, April 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Spirit Industries Inc. (OTC Pink:GSRX) (“Green Spirit” or, the “Company”) announced today that it has officially opened its first medicinal cannabis dispensary in Dorado, located about 15 miles west of San Juan on Puerto Rico’s northern coast, and is currently serving both local and visiting patients holding valid Medicinal Cannabis Regulatory Board (“MCRB”) cards.  This marks an important milestone for Green Spirit as it continues to deliver on its mission to provide patients access to an extensive selection of top quality and reliable medicinal cannabis products in a safe, compassionate and knowledgable environment.

“This day has been long-awaited, and we are very happy to open the doors to the first Green Spirit RX medicinal cannabis dispensary in Puerto Rico,” said Les Ball, CEO of Green Spirit.  “We have created a safe, secure, beautiful and comfortable space for patients to visit, where licensed, knowledgeable and trained staff offer patients private consultations. Green Spirit RX welcomes patients holding valid MCRB cards.”

Visitors from the U.S. holding a valid registration for medicinal cannabis use in their home state can apply to obtain a temporary card from the MCRB in San Juan in order to purchase medicinal cannabis from dispensaries in Puerto Rico.

The new Green Spirit RX medicinal cannabis dispensary is located at the Paseo del Plata Shopping Center, Building No. 3, P.R. 696, int. José Efrón Avenue, Dorado, Puerto Rico 00646.
