Whole flower cannabis will be available for purchase starting tomorrow, October 30 , at the Vireo dispensaries located in Queens , White Plains , Albany , and via the Company's home delivery service in the New York City metro area. Whole flower will be available for purchase at its Binghamton dispensary on Monday, November 1 .

Grown exclusively at the Company's indoor cultivation and production facility in Johnstown, NY , Vireo will offer several high quality, iconic strains as whole flower, beginning with OG Kush. The Company expects to have up to five additional strains available by the end of 2021.

"We applaud the Cannabis Control Board & Office of Cannabis Management for their swift action to improve the medical cannabis program by allowing whole flower products," said Goodness Growth Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Kyle Kingsley , M.D. "We are excited to bring our premium whole flower products to market, and to help make cannabis more accessible and affordable for new and existing patients here in New York ."

New York's Cannabis Control Board & Office of Cannabis Management announced in early October that cannabis dispensaries could begin selling whole flower marijuana products to qualified patients, effective immediately. The enhancements made also allow patients to purchase up to a 60-day supply at one time.

"Switching to whole flower products could potentially decrease costs by up to 50 percent per month, on average, for patients switching to whole flower from other formats," Dr. Kingsley added. "The reduced cost, combined with the increased variety of different strains, mean more options for patients. This is an important step in the evolution of New York's cannabis market."

Vireo's first whole flower strain, OG Kush, will be available starting tomorrow, with additional strains expected throughout November and December. Vireo whole flower products will be available in 3.5-gram and 7-gram containers. Like all other Vireo products in New York , the whole flower product lines will be Certified Kosher.
