weGrow, the "Marijuana Superstore", opens on February 26th, 2011 in Sacramento

On February 26th, weGrow, dubbed the "Walmart of Weed", celebrates the grand opening of its first franchise location with a ceremonial tree planting by Sacramento elected officials and community leaders. The opening will be an expo-style event with dozens of vendors, live entertainment, on-site consumption and many special guests in attendance. This 10,000 square foot facility, located by the State Capitol, offers turnkey products and services to assist medical marijuana patients in safe and responsible cannabis cultivation. Customers are able to get their cannabis cards, buy their grow equipment, take marijuana cultivation courses and even hire expert technicians to help professionally build out their grow rooms. The opening of this store provides a one-stop-shop for marijuana cultivators, and represents a large step forward for the cannabis industry.

weGrow offers all of the products and services required for medical marijuana patients to cultivate their own cannabis. The on-site medical doctor offers cannabis card recommendations, which is the first step in California for a patient to legally cultivate cannabis. The retail showroom offers not only the largest selection of hydroponic equipment in Sacramento but also features Ikea-style grow room demonstrations with real marijuana plants. Classes through weGrow’s University of Cannabis will be provided for aspiring horticulturalists, and expert technicians are available to provide consultations and professional in-home grow room build outs.

Recently in response to the overwhelming demand weGrow began to offer franchise opportunities for entrepreneurs interested in opening a full service hydroponic store with a proven business model. weGrow Founder Dhar Mann says, "Many people are interested in entering the burgeoning cannabis industry but do not want the risk of growing or selling cannabis. Our franchise model is a great opportunity for investors to take advantage of this industry’s rapid growth without ever selling a single plant." Even in today’s progressive acceptance of medical marijuana, weGrow is still the only hydroponic store that openly caters to medical marijuana cultivators, and is the first hydroponic franchise to market. With stores sprouting in Arizona, Colorado, New Jersey and Oregon over the next few months, weGrow truly is becoming the Walmart of Weed.
