Curaleaf Launches First Medical Cannabis Tablets in Florida
New Product Available in All Curaleaf Medical Cannabis Dispensaries Statewide
MIAMI, Sept. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Curaleaf Holdings, Inc. (CSE: CURA) (OTCQX: CURLF) ("Curaleaf" or the "Company"), a leading vertically integrated cannabis operator in the United States, announced today the company is the first in Florida to launch medical cannabis tablets, available in all 26 Curaleaf dispensaries across the state. Curaleaf, operator of the largest cannabis retail footprint in the US, with 49 dispensaries across the country, also sells medical cannabis in tablet form in Connecticut, New Jersey, Maryland and New York, with plans to launch in additional states.
"Knowing that our premium quality medical cannabis products allow so many of our patients to live life well, we are always looking for alternative administration methods to meet patients' needs," said Joe Lusardi, Curaleaf CEO. "We are proud to be the first to offer Florida's patients the option of medical cannabis tablets."
The tablets, which are mint-flavored, are a refreshing form of the medication that offers patients convenience, portability and ease of use as the tablet disintegrates on the tongue and is slow acting. The tablets are packaged in child-proof containers in accordance with Florida Department of Health regulations. State-certified physicians should determine which routes of administration, including tablets, are best suited to address their patients' medical conditions.
