It comes in different strengths, which is cool
"We’re allowed to have five brands -- that’s five strains of flower that we grow," says Vita. "So we are growing multiple strains in Rochester. We have one form of the brand available now, an oral tincture, and that has two ratios -- one high CBD, which we’ve already released, and then one high THC, which will be available next week."
The most interesting part: because they’re making lab-weed, they can alter the ratio of THC to CBD in ways that "don’t exist in nature," as Vita says, like two parts THC to one part CBD.
However, none of this is covered by insurance
Which is incredibly, but predictably, lame of the insurance companies. Columbia Care, however, is a compassionate facility in multiple regards. "We do offer financial subsidies to patients who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford this," Vita says, noting that patient access is really important to him and his team.
So basically, Columbia Care is the coolest place that you hopefully won’t ever have to go to (at least, not until marijuana can be prescribed for some very un-serious conditions). Fortunately, in New York, calling your delivery service is still an incredibly easy option, and one that’s at least been decriminalized.
