Columbia Care, one of the largest cultivators, manufacturers and providers of cannabis products in the U.S., announced its Seed & Strain brand pre-rolls will be available today at all four of its dispensaries in New York, making it the first company to offer pre-rolls to patients.

Columbia Care, based in New York, is one of the original multi-state providers of medical cannabis in the U.S. and now delivers products and services to both the medical and adult-use markets. The launch marks the first time the Columbia Care’s Seed & Strain lifestyle brands have debuted in its home state.

“We’re beyond thrilled to introduce our brands to New York patients, and it’s a special testament to our cultivation team who was able to bring pre-rolls to market so quickly after regulatory approvals,” said BJ Carretta, SVP, brand marketing, Columbia Care. “We are grateful to the Office of Cannabis Management for their support and thorough review of our brands and operations.”
