The Apothecarium dispensary by TerrAscend is opening their New Jersey location in Phillipsburg in Northwest NJ on the Delaware River.
The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) issued a permit allowing TerrAscend to begin dispensing medical cannabis yesterday.
“Expanding access to our growing patient population continues to be a high priority, especially during these unprecedented times,” said Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli. “The opening of this site will provide residents in the Northwestern New Jersey better access to products they need to treat their conditions.”
TerrAscend is operating their dispensary under the name “The Apothecarium.” They are a Multi-State Operator (MSO).
It is the first dispensary in Warren County and Northwest New Jersey. Besides Phillipsburg, it is a generally conservative area.
They are now the 13th dispensary location in New Jersey after GSD’s third location in Eatontown.

Apothecarium Dispensary in Phillipsburg
Phillipsburg, NJ, is quite the town to put one of these.
It’s a smaller, post-industrial town in a rural area on the Delaware River that looks like it needs the Green Rush. If Apothecarium goes adult-use before PA, people will flood over from the neighboring Easton, PA, which is larger and more vibrant.
The same will likely occur with Lambertville and New Hope if New Jersey ever issues another license. Twenty-four licenses have been held up in court for 11 months now, with the NJDOH refusing the comment on the situation.
They are located at 55 Main Street in a former bank building on a hilly road leading to the Delaware River crossing.
