Suzan Nickelson is the first female, as well as the first black woman, to own a cannabis license in the state of New Jersey. Suzan was an awardee of a medicinal dispensary license in the NJ RFP 2019 round and is the first black woman majority owner and operator in New Jersey’s history. Under Suzan’s leadership, Holistic Solutions will open as the first and only dispensary in Waterford, NJ, which is located within the Philadelphia metro area.

The Alternative Treatment Center which has over 4,000 square feet of sales space, 11 POS stations for seamless purchasing, a private consultation room for discussions with onsite medical professionals, and a drive-thru window, will provide compassionate care and education to patients enrolled in New Jersey’s Medicinal Cannabis Program. A curated assortment of THC and CBD products, including flower, pre-rolls, edibles, tinctures, vaporizers, concentrates, ingestibles, topicals, and accessories, will be available for patients at all stages of their cannabis journey. Women and BIPOC-owned cannabis brands, like Miss Grass and But-A-Cake, will have ample space on-shelf.
