GrowGeneration Corp (OTCMKTS:GRWG) advanced 4.6% to US$3.39 after announcing that it has acquired the assets of Reno Hydroponics.

The Reno, Nevada, store will be the Denver-based cannabis company’s 23rd location and its second in Nevada.

“As a recreational legal market, Reno is a prime area for GrowGen, with an increasing number of dispensaries and cultivators,” CEO Darren Lampert said.

The product has been successfully dispensed from a pharmacy, according to Aurora.

Under the UK framework, specialist doctors can legally issue prescriptions for cannabis-based medicines when they agree that their patients could benefit, according to Aurora.

Its stock dropped 1.4% to C$9.81 in Canadian trading.
