New York Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Vireo Health: Patient-focused, physician-led.

At Vireo Health, we believe medical marijuana is a great resource for treating a variety of qualifying conditions safely. By speaking with our patients about their diagnoses and their medical care, we’ll work together with the patient and their physician to craft a treatment plan that keeps the patient front and center. When you visit our New York medical marijuana dispensary, you’ll find compassionate physicians and pharmacists who are up-to-date on cannabis-based remedies and who understand the differences between the various capsules, oral solutions, vaporization cartridges, and vaporization oils we prescribe. Together, you’ll be able to decide which product may be right for you as we work to manage your condition.

Our best-in-class cannabis-based products are truly made with our patients in mind. As an integrated medical marijuana dispensary, we handle everything from seed to sale. Our knowledgeable staff of horticulturalists and scientists nurture our plants and create our products, while our compassionate physicians and pharmacists assist patients in our dispensaries.

Currently, Vireo Health runs New York medical marijuana dispensaries located in Albany, Binghamton, Queens, and White Plains.
