Curaleaf today said it has commenced sales of wholesale adult-use products across the state of New York as a result of receiving approval from the New York State Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) on Friday, December 8.
As of December 12, Curaleaf will offer five vape, edible and flower products from its Select and Grassroots brand portfolios, including Select Briq Essentials, Select X Bites, Select Nano Bites and Grassroots premium flower. The company's wholesale partners include MJ Dispensary, a CAURD licensee which will include Curaleaf products as a part of its Grand Opening event at 4:20 pm ET today.
Future products will be produced using local New York-grown flower, including distillate from New York based hemp farm Open Mind Organics (OMO). Led by David Falkowski, a third generation farmer who became one of the first licensed hemp farmers in the state, this year OMO solidified its position as one of the leading adult use cultivators and processors for cannabis in New York.
Curaleaf will join New York's adult use market with corporate responsibility, inclusivity in hiring practices and community impact at the forefront of operations. The Company's Rooted in Good program works to address the consequences of the War on Drugs by partnering with and funding community organizations that tackle these issues. Curaleaf will enact its Company-wide workforce and educational initiatives, including a commitment to employing at least 10 percent of all new New York hires from populations touched by low-level cannabis-related offenses and hosting retail activations focused on social justice and equity.
