Don’t we all?

It’s time for you to take a trip to one of the many amazing dispensaries in NY. In July of 2014 Gov. Cuomo signed the Compassionate Care Act, which created legal protections for patients +caregivers. It also authorized the state to license+ regulate “registered organizations” to cultivate + sell medical cannabis to patients. Patients must obtain a registration identification card after getting written certification from their physician.

Cannabis is essential.

Medical-grade cannabis products have gained mainstream popularity + Medical Marijuana Dispensaries have even been labeled an essential business after the COVID19 outbreak. So, getting your NY State Medical Marijuana Recommendation is now easier than ever. Getting your card opens the door to visiting the ever growing number of medical dispensaries in New York. Within the dispensaries, there are a delightful array of THC-infused products including edibles, tinctures, capsules, vapes + just recently in some locations – FLOWER!
