Dear Patients and Guests,
 
Per Governor Baker and the Cannabis Control Commission’s orders, we will restart adult-use sales on MONDAY, May 25th at 10am.

All adult-use sales will be for curbside pickup only (with strict social distancing and sanitization measures) and medical sales will continue as normal with our enhanced sanitization and social distancing.
 
Please be on the lookout for an email from us tomorrow with the exact procedures.
 
Stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you all back Monday!
 
Best,
Joseph Lekach

Dear Apothca Patients and Customers,

Due to Governor Baker closing all adult-use cannabis sales, the only Governor in the United States to do so, many of you have been unable to purchase cannabis. While some have chosen to register for medical cards, many haven’t for a variety of reasons.

To continue to help our customers, we have started a new partnership with Leafwell, a respected multi-state medical firm conducting patient certifications via video calls. The process we have worked on with Leafwell is so quick and easy that it will make you forget Adult-Use sales are closed!

With the level of ease of getting a new medical card and the savings you would receive, it’s better than having recreational sales back!

Stay safe!

Dear Apothca Patients and Guests

I am sure you have all received numerous emails from companies about COVID-19 so I will try to keep this brief.

Like most others, we have taken many steps to increase our sanitization protocols, which were already very strict. Our team is wearing gloves, using hand sanitizer, and washing their hands with soap and water every 30 minutes. We need to make sure that our team takes care of themselves so they can continue to take care of you all. 

Our team is also sanitizing surfaces constantly. Every surface is being cleaned multiple times per hour. We want to make sure that we kill any pathogens that may be brought into the dispensary.

Our team at each location has discretion to limit the number of people in the sales area at a given moment and we expect to keep the total number at no more than 10-20 people at a time.

We will also do whatever we can to maintain products for you all. Our packaging team is working hard to keep flower coming to the stores at least twice a week and our wholesale partners are doing a great job of maintaining deliveries. If there is any change to our operating hours or procedures, we will send you all an update.

I wanted to end by saying thank you to our amazing team. They are working hard to make sure that all of you can still find your cannabis products. Their dedication has been admirable. 

In the meantime, if anyone has any questions, concerns, feedback, etc., please feel free to reach out to our team at info@apothca.com.

Stay healthy and safe!

Regards,

Joseph Lekach
