Thrive Anna Medical Cannabis Dispensary Open House April 15

Ribbon Cutting With Mayor, Celebrity Iron Chef Star Tyler Burke

ANNA, IL and NEWTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/16 -- The newly constructed Thrive Anna medical cannabis dispensary will open its doors for a public Open House on Friday April 15 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. at 87 Richview Drive in Anna. Anna Mayor Steve Hartline and Iron Chef Alumnus/MariMed Advisors Cannabis Expert Tyler Burke will be the guests of honor with Thrive Anna Co-founders Brad Galli and Gorgi & Rosie Naumovski for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 3:30 p.m. The Open House will also feature food and beverages, giveaways and the opportunity to meet with local medical cannabis cultivators supplying Thrive. The facility is expected to open for business May 2nd.

"This is a rare opportunity for people in the community to see what the interior of a medical marijuana dispensary looks like without being a state-registered patient," stated Gorgi Naumovski. "Tyler Burke and our staff are looking forward to meeting area residents and helping to answer questions and dispel any myths about medical marijuana facilities and therapies. We'll also be able to help process patient registrations so they will be able to access our facility and products as soon as we open."

Thrive's mission is to help its clients and patients flourish while elevating the industry standard for culture, compliance, customer, community and care.

The Thrive Anna facility is identical to the recently opened Thrive Harrisburg site, also operated by the Naumovskis. Both sites will offer the broadest selection of medical cannabis products and accessories in Southern Illinois. However, in accordance with Illinois law, there will not be product on site during the open house. Once product is on site and the facility opens, access is limited only to certified patients and staff.

Through the end of May, Thrive Anna is offering all patients registering to join Thrive in the first month of operation a 10% discount on orders for their first 30 days of membership.

Thrive has partnered closely with MariMed Advisors (a subsidiary of Worlds Online (OTCQB: WORX)), America's foremost medical cannabis best practices consultancy, to leverage MariMed's extensive industry experience and to design and build a state of the art dispensary with an extensive selection of medical marijuana products, including more than 20 strains from Illinois-licensed cultivators, pens/cartridges, precise dosing edibles, concentrates, waxes and oils, as well as accessories.

Robert Fireman, CEO of MariMed Advisors, noted, "Our partnership with Thrive Anna provides best practices knowledge and insight to help them hit the ground running with a patient-focused dispensary that carefully tracks every aspect of the business so that we build our collective knowledge base that can facilitate continuous improvement in all areas for our medical cannabis clients and patients."
