CRANFORD, New Jersey, May 23, 2022 – PRESS RELEASE – Bennabis Health, a company filling holes in the health insurance industry for medical cannabis patients, is thrilled to announce a contractual partnership with The Botanist dispensaries of Southern New Jersey as the next step of advancing its mission to increase medical cannabis affordability and growing its membership program.

Bennabis Health is the first company to offer a membership program for patients eligible for a medical cannabis card. The company’s leadership is a council of highly experienced NJ-based health insurance and cannabis industry operations professionals whose focus is on easing the financial burdens of those who can benefit from medical cannabis.

Patients who have or get a medical cannabis card will now be able to find Bennabis Health membership program benefits available at The Botanist locations in New Jersey, including Atlantic City, Egg Harbor Township and Williamstown.

“The continuing growth of our membership plan in partnership with The Botanist is the next step in our national rollout plan to increase patient access across the country,” said Bennabis Health president Don Parisi. “Expanding access and affordability across our home state has been a top priority.”

The Botanist dispensaries are developed by Acreage Holdings, Inc and provide a carefully curated retail and product experience for consumers. They offer high-quality products and pay meticulous attention to every detail, from seed to sale. The Botanist’s product line in New Jersey includes a wide variety of whole flower strains, pre-rolls and vape cartridges available in the brand’s retail locations and other dispensaries.

“The Botanist has proudly served New Jersey medical patients for almost five years and is thrilled to partner with Bennabis Health to continue providing access and affordable health coverage to patients across the state,” said Brian Sickora, Acreage General manager for the state of New Jersey.

Currently, there are no health insurance plans that reimburse for medical cannabis, which is why Bennabis Health set its course to change that when it launched the first-of-its-kind membership program on March 1, the first step on the road to health plan coverage for medical cannabis. The company aims to be the first in the nation to offer health coverage for patients who need help paying for their cannabis.

Bennabis Health registration is available now and open to New Jersey medicinal cannabis cardholders. Register or find more information here: or send an email to
