5 Years of MÜV Florida Dispensaries
You never forget your first Florida dispensary visit.
The smell that hits you as you enter the lobby. The smiling face waiting to check you in. The product—legal cannabis product—lining displays for your purchasing. And the moment you pick out the first cannabis product you'll use legally.
It's hard to believe that June 22, 2023 marks five years since that experience was provided for the first time by MÜV Florida Dispensaries. MÜV Apollo Beach Dispensary, the Tampa area's favorite mom-and-pop shop, was the first to open its doors to Florida medical marijuana patients, followed quickly by Sarasota, Tampa - Dale Mabry, and Wellington.
Before we explore what makes Apollo Beach special and some of the highlights from over the years, we want to share some MÜViversary details. Without you, we would not—could not—have expanded our footprint, bringing cannabis access to the furthest reaches of the state. Consider this 5-year MÜViversary celebration our thanks to Ü:
5-Year MÜViversary Cannabis Deals
It's not an anniversary without a celebration. While you can argue that any day your favorite products are on promotion is a celebration, that feeling won't hold a candle to what we have in store for our 5-year. In addition to deals, you may remember (or have!) the limited edition Keep it Growing hat from last year's anniversary and if you didn't snag one, you'll be excited to hear that this year, we have a new something special just for Ü.
MÜV Florida Dispensaries
From Tampa to Orlando, Tallahassee to Key West, MÜV Dispensaries decorate the state of Florida, providing cannabis access to those who need it. Our dispensaries were designed with Ü in mind; each features a warm, spacious environment.

MÜV Apollo Beach Spotlight
Historic charm meets caring consultations.
Our cozy Apollo Beach dispensary is located in a historic building with Western character—curved lines meet in striking corners; compounded with the concrete exterior, the dispensary has the feel of a Texan monument. Apollo Beach is staffed by kind, informative Cannabis Advisors, who listen to your needs to most effectively recommend cannabis products.
And the best part of this dispensary? MÜV Apollo Beach is next door to our Cultivation facility, where all products that line MÜV Dispensary shelves are crafted. In fact, they practically share a parking lot, ensuring the aroma of cannabis greets you each step of your visit.
But don't take it from us—here's what MÜV Florida patients have to say about Apollo Beach:
I’ve been a customer for years here. The service is excellent, the knowledge and application of the products is spot on. They never over sell or upscale to make money. The focus is on helping the clients. They have a great online payment platform and amazing points system. Oh yea, they give discounts to veterans.

Extremely nice and very, very knowledgeable of strains and recommended treatments. Always goes out of the way to help. Unfortunately, in this industry, that's a rarity. Thank you so much for everything!

Awesome place. Just got my card last month and there is so much to learn about the strain and delivery method works best for you along with your Doctors’ recommendation that I was intimidated to go in at first. But From my first visit each person has been knowledgeable, patient and friendly. I learn something new about the products each time I visit. Now a few month later I’m knowledgeable enough to order most of what I want online and pick up at store. They text when your order is ready. They are very efficient in getting patients in and out without making you feel rushed. Today I’m picking up plus learning about their various vape products. They also have a savings rewards app to save even more. Provide your email and they will send sales notices nearly every day. If you have a MUV near you I would definitely give them a try.

Everyone I have encountered has been amazing, truly. That being said, Chad is next level! Energetic, enthusiastic, engaging, exceptionally knowledgeable, compassionate, kind and gracious. Thank you MUV for ensuring each visit is a positive experience. From a business perspective that is incredibly difficult but you have found a way to ensure it happens. Thank you♥️

This is my go to dispensary for one because it’s close to home… for two because I truly believe MUV is #1 in producing top quality medication. Seriously, they don’t play around when it comes to consistency either. The people at this location know me pretty well as I’m always there and they call me by my name (for the most part). I had a really bad panic attack today INSIDE the actual MUV (that can be pretty embarrassing) and needless to say I wasn’t very calm but when I spoke to Ashley she was very calming and very understanding and actually helped calm me a bit. she’s also very helpful all of the time - I wanted to add that !!!… I can’t remember my buddies name there’s a couple of them but the whole team is pretty awesome 😁 thanks MUV !!!
