Medical marijuana patients from Queens will have access to the first chewable cannabis gummy from New York. On 21st February, the product of Curaleaf, CuraChews, will be sold from the company’s dispensary based in forest hills, making it a first time a gummy like cannabis product to be legal to be put up for selling in the New York City.
Moreover, these forms of edible products offer medical marijuana patients the best alternative way of care, which does not involve vaping or smoking. Also, they offer patients who require a lower dose of the long-lasting impact of cannabis.
An alternative medicine practitioner based in Manhattan Dr. Louis Vastola said,
Patients have requested more oral forms of administration that also provide a pleasant experience. The availability of a chewable gel that has a palatable texture and flavor helps me recommend a product that more accurately addresses patients’ needs. This, in addition to the portability of the product, which provides ease of use some patients need, gives me confidence that patients will adhere to their medicine.
In December 2017, the legalized sale of products such as cannabis gummies was sanctioned as New York law. This law allowed products like lotions, ointments, chewable tablets, patches, and lozenges can be put up for sale in the New York state. In July 2014, the Compassionate Care Act, which allows medical marijuana in New York, was first passed as Law.
