Mission and Vision
Our goals are to enlighten the public about the many uses of the cannabis plant. We are also geared towards eradicating the stigma one fact at a time through community involvement.
The Silver Leaf team brings New Jersey a team of medical professionals, pharmacists, and cannabis experts with decades of experience in their respective fields. The team has an impeccable record in owning and successfully operating highly-regulated pharmacies, a strong local presence and owned pharmacies within New Jersey, and is a minority-owned, women-majority team that is passionate about giving equal opportunities for all New Jersey locals. The team has a solid track record for patient education, which is something we fully expect to integrate into our dispensary operations as part of our core business model.
The pharmacy business launched by Dr. Jessy Vikani was built from the ground up, and subsequently converted into a highly successful business resulting in the accumulation of numerous awards—including being recognized as the best in all of Ocean County—for excellence in customer service and community involvement. Our ability to launch, operate, and succeed in a highly-regulated industry dealing with State and Federal drug regulations has been the prominent factor as to why we are confident in our ability to operate a dispensary. Additionally, the Silver Leaf team has a cannabis expert who is experienced in both the business and hands-on operating aspects of licensed cannabis businesses. We are confident that our team will positively impact the community through our activism, professionalism, experience, and commitment to promoting the patient’s well-being. We describe each of these individuals below.
