Curaleaf Launches NY’s First Medical Cannabis Flower Products
Curaleaf New York announced it has launched Curaleaf Ground Flower Pods — New York state’s first medical cannabis flower products — at its Carle Place dispensary in Nassau County, Long Island. The product will be available at all four Curaleaf dispensaries in the coming weeks.
Now available for limited release, Curaleaf will provide New York’s medical cannabis patients a new method to take their medicine by offering ground flower pods, which are used in medical vaporizers. Each Curaleaf Ground Flower Pod contains 350mg of active cannabinoids — a total of 700mg per 3.5g package.
“Curaleaf is very pleased to be launching the first medical cannabis flower products to be offered in New York state, which is first and foremost a win for our patients,” said Joseph Lusardi, CEO of Curaleaf. “Flower is cannabis in its raw form and therefore the most affordable form of cannabis. We can increase patient access by providing more affordable products and offering more options for patients in the medical program.”
“As a practitioner in the Long Island area, I strive to help patients attain the most effective medicine to treat their conditions,” said Dr. Grace Forde, MD, director of neurological services at North American Partners in Pain Management in Long Island. “It’s extremely beneficial to patients to offer more options beyond cannabis oil. In addition to being more affordable and all-natural, vaporizing cured ground flower cannabis produces effects faster than oral solutions and is therefore better suited for treating certain medical conditions.”
