Columbia Cares Moves to Brooklyn, Curaleaf New York Takes Over Upstate Location

Curaleaf New York and Columbia Care have announced that Curaleaf will take over operations at Columbia Care’s medical cannabis dispensary in Plattsburgh, New York. The dispensary serves patients in multiple counties, including Clinton, Franklin, and Essex.

Although the dispensary will operate under the Curaleaf brand, day-to-day dispensary operations will be run by PalliaTech NY.

“Patients in the North Country rely on this site, and we are pleased we can continue to ensure patients have access to these important treatments that help manage painful and chronic conditions,” said Michelle Bodner, President of PalliaTech NY, in a statement.. “We are excited to join the Plattsburgh community and look forward to providing a warm, comforting atmosphere for patients and helping those in Clinton and surrounding counties with our high-quality medical cannabis products.”

For their part, Columbia Care will move its operations to downtown Brooklyn and open a brand new medical cannabis dispensary, making it one of the only two medical cannabis dispensaries in Brooklyn. The other dispensary is owned by iAnthus Capital Holdings, Inc. (IAN), and will be operated by the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary Citiva Medical, LLC.

“Columbia Care is grateful to have had the opportunity to serve North Country patients for the last two years. Clinton County and the City of Plattsburgh have been incredible partners in helping support our mission and ensuring patients received the care and access they require,” said Nicholas Vita, CEO of Columbia Care, in a statement. “We thank our patients, participating practitioners, elected officials, law enforcement and the community at large for the opportunity to serve the region. We have every confidence that patients will continue to be served well by Curaleaf.”

Columbia Care has begun transitioning to its new property and is expected to be complete by April 5, 2018. In the coming days, Curaleaf will begin operating at Columbia Care’s Plattsburgh location to avoid any lapse in treatment for the area’s patients.
