NEW YORK (NEWS10) – Columbia Care, medical marijuana dispensary based in New York, introduced the nation’s first controlled-dose and solid-fill medical cannabinoid capsules.
According to Columbia Care, the capsules will make administering and storing medical marijuana medicines more convenient, consistent, and more effective due to dosing.
We are proud to offer this new, proprietary, pharmaceutical formulation as the first-of-its-kind in the United States to enhance patient access while re-setting the standard and expectations for care, safety and quality for the entire industry,” Columbia Care CEO Nicholas Vita said.
The New York State Department of Health approved the capsules for dispensing in all four of Columbia Care’s New York-based dispensaries, located in New York City, Riverhead, Plattsburgh, and Rochester.
Columbia Care says in 2017, it plans to make the products available in several of its other licensed jurisdiction throughout the United States beginning with Arizona, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C.
