DENVER CO - FEBRUARY. 17, 2023 - Schwazze, (OTCQX: SHWZ) (NEO: SHWZ) ("Schwazze" or the "Company"), a multi-state operating cannabis company with assets in Colorado and New Mexico, announces the grand opening of its medical and recreational dispensary, R.Greenleaf Paseo, opening on Saturday, February 18, 2023. The new store is located at 8150 Louisiana Blvd NE in Albuquerque. Store operating hours are 9a to 10p Monday through Saturday; 9a to 8p on Sunday.  

The R.Greenleaf Paseo store opening continues the intentional expansion throughout the state of New Mexico and comes on the heels of a total of six additional R.Greenleaf store openings since Schwazze’s acquisition of the retail banner one year ago in February 2022. This brings R.Greenleaf’s total number of New Mexico retail dispensaries to 17. All locations serve the needs of medical patients as well as recreational adult-use consumers.

“We are excited to be a part of the growing cannabis community in New Mexico and to open an additional R.Greenleaf dispensary in the state. The team has been hard at work realizing our expansion plans throughout New Mexico,” said Ken Diehl, New Mexico Division President. “R.Greenleaf, offering a wide variety of quality products serviced by top-notch, knowledgeable staff, has grown from 10 locations to now 17 within just one year.”

R.Greenleaf Paseo will also offer introductory pricing on flower, edibles, and vapes. Enrollment in the Gratify Rewards customer loyalty program, which can be used at any Schwazze-owned retail dispensary in either New Mexico or Colorado, will begin when doors open, however, customers can enroll now at any other R.Greenleaf dispensary location. 

The grand opening event is scheduled for Saturday, February 18th beginning at 12 noon. All Gratify Rewards members that shop at the Paseo location on February 18th will be automatically entered to win two 2023 New Mexico United season passes.

Sanchez Tacos will offer free taco plates to the first 50 customers that make a dispensary purchase beginning at 12pm. The first 50 customers at 12pm will also receive free swag bags, stickers, pens, dank banks, and munchies from Cheba Hut.

Kiss FM 97.3 Radio and the legendary DJ Cali will be on the grounds spinning records for all in attendance.
