The Ladies of Uma Flowers
PharmD // Co-Founder
Priyanka Patel, a Waltham native, always envisioned opening her own pharmacy business before graduating from Northeastern University School of Pharmacy. However, she quickly realized a small-independent pharmacy would struggle to compete with the larger chain companies that dominate the industry. Her break in owning her own medical business came once cannabis was legalized for medical and adult-use. Priyanka saw an opportunity to use her 10+ years of retail pharmacy experience, in handling and dispensing controlled substances, and apply it in the cannabis industry.
MPH // Co-Founder
Tejal Patel, a Waltham resident, obtained her Masters in Public Health from SUNY Downstate Medical Center with hopes to improve the quality of health care in the community. Tejal was initially unsure about entering the cannabis industry when Priyanka approached her with the idea of Uma Flowers. However, after doing research and better understanding the therapeutic and medicinal values of cannabis consumption, Tejal believed legalized, safe, and informed consumption of cannabis can lead to positive impacts on public health. With Tejal’s 5+ years of experience in Public Health combined with Priyanka’s retail pharmacy expertise, Tejal knew together they would make a unique partnership to lead Uma Flowers.
The Uma Experience
It’s important for our patients and customers to know we are invested in their community now and in the future. We are 100% family owned, with no commitments to outside investors and stakeholders allowing us to prioritize quality service and care for our patrons over profits.
The future is female. In an industry predominately run by men, we are proudly led by two strong, independent, and highly educated women with a clear vision on how their company should operate both internally and externally.
Safe. Pure. Clean.
All products dispensed at our locations will be independently tested by a licensed lab, ensuring safety and purity of all cannabis products for sale. Not only will the products that we grow at our cultivation facility be of the highest standard, but that extends to all products that we curate for sale from our wholesale partners.
