Vireo Health strives to offer New York patients in Queens and beyond the best possible compassionate care coupled with the highest quality cannabis medicine. Led by physicians, pharmacists, scientists and industry professionals, Vireo Health Queens designs every step of their medical marijuana process with their patients in mind. History: Vireo Health is a physician-founded and led medical marijuana company committed to providing Queens medical marijuana patients with pharmaceutical grade cannabis products and individualized patient care.
Their founder, Dr. Kyle Kingsley, saw firsthand while working in emergency medicine that many patients abused their prescription drugs, were over-prescribed and often resulted in critical or fatal overdoses. He also met many patients during his tenure who successfully used medical cannabis to alleviate their suffering. Seeing medical marijuana as an alternative solution for pain management and both treating and managing other debilitating conditions, Dr. Kingsley decided to launch his first organization, Minnesota Medical Solutions.
They won their merit-based cannabis dispensary license in Minnesota in 2014, and only a few months later Dr. Kingsley began another company: Vireo Health of New York. In July of 2015, the Queens medical marijuana dispensary won its New York License, and since then they have helped hundreds of New York patients find relief using medical cannabis treatments, including those addicted to opioid medications. Staff: Vireo Health in Queens prides themselves on their commitment to excellence from cultivation through the distribution of their medical marijuana treatments.
As a vertically integrated dispensary, each cannabis product is formulated to help patients receive a precise and consistent dosage and formula for their specific health concerns. Vireo’s onhand cannabis pharmacists work with each patient to find the particular medicine to best help them, using a “Go Low, Start Slow” approach to help patients find the optimal treatment available.
Menu: All of Vireo Health’s cannabis products are formulated with their patients in mind. Working with highly qualified horticulturists and using the latest and most efficient greenhouse practices, Vireo Health’s top quality plants are extracted into clean and solvent-free concentrates to deliver pure and natural marijuana medicines. Using a spectrum ranging from THC Dominant to CBD Dominant marijuana products, Vireo Health’s patients can select from a variety of oils, vaporizers, capsules to find the best strain and consumption method for their lifestyle and condition. Currently, Vireo Health Queens only accepts cash payments, with an ATM available on site for patient convenience. They are easily accessible from the Long Island Expressway/I-495 and provide an elevator to reach their second-story location.
