AYR Cannabis Dispensary is the third largest Medical Marijuana Treatment Center in the Florida medical cannabis industry. Utilizing advanced cannabis cultivation techniques, they craft a diverse range of premium medical cannabis products, including high-THC flower, distillate, live resin, concentrates, edibles, tinctures, and topicals.

They value lifelong learning and believe maintaining curiosity is key for staying up-to-date on the ever-changing landscape of cannabis trends and innovations. They deliver guidance with expertise, enthusiasm, and, most importantly, through a deep understanding of the needs and desires of their cannabis patients.

AYR Cannabis Dispensary is committed to being a force for good in the communities they serve and the world. They're not just selling high-quality medical cannabis products, they’re cultivating a cannabis community and a movement that’s dedicated to wellness, equality, and sustainability.


In 2023, their Florida dispensaries officially transitioned from Liberty Health Sciences to AYR Cannabis Dispensary. Though LHS was acquired by AYR in 2021, their official transition in 2023 marked an exciting point in the company's history. AYR is proud to show their commitment to the Florida medical cannabis market by not only rebranding all Florida dispensaries but by also relocating the company headquarters to Miami.


AYR has deep roots in Florida with its company headquarters located in Miami and cultivation site in Gainesville, Florida. AYR has 90 dispensaries across the country, including 64 Florida locations. They operate medical marijuana dispensaries in 8 states, including Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania.


AYR Cannabis Dispensary Greenhouse

AYR Wellness in Gainesville is growing more than a quarter of a million plants per year that enrich the lives of the patients who experience them.

"We are dedicated to growing the highest quality flower with precision and efficiency. Growing takes place in our large-scale hybrid greenhouse utilizing best practices in both cannabis and agriculture. We are vertically integrated, meaning that all growing, extraction, and manufacturing happens on the farm,” explained Michael Herfurth, Director of Cultivation for Florida.

Their uniqueness is based on choosing to grow at scale in a Florida greenhouse. This decision allows AYR to utilize the sunshine state’s natural light spectrum and combine it with agricultural artistry in order to produce crops year-round. The greenhouse is equipped with its own computerized system that controls temperature, photoperiod, and irrigation. Focus is heavily based on harnessing the plants' natural processes.
