A medical marijuana dispensary in Forest Hills is gearing up for their grand opening this month, and the staff is encouraging patients to make appointments at their new facility.

Curaleaf NY in Forest Hills, located at 107-18 70th Rd., is slated to open for business on Tuesday, July 10.  Though the company says that walk-ins are welcome, they add that making an appointment in advance will ensure that patients have a timely visit.

Michelle Bodner, the president of PalliaTech NY, which operates the dispensary under the brand name Curaleaf New York, expressed her excitement about the newest Queens dispensary.

Medical marijuana has already helped tens of thousands of New Yorkers and we are excited to welcome patients to our Forest Hills dispensary to access the treatment they need or learn more about medical marijuana and the state’s program. Our team looks forward to meeting with patients to discuss how medical marijuana can help provide relief from chronic pain and improve their lives,” Bodner said.

Curaleaf currently has operations in 11 states including New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida and Arizona. The dispensary in Forest Hills will be managed by New York-licensed pharmacists and there will also be counselors available onsite to advise patients about treatment plans.

Patients with an official registry identification card will be able to purchase pharmaceutical-grade medical cannabis products, including capsules, tablets, tinctures, oils and under-the tongue strips, as previously reported by QNS.com.

The dispensary’s central location between Queens Boulevard and Austin Street make it easily accessible by several modes of public transportation. Patients can travel to the location via the Long Island Rail Road’s Forest Hills Station, the Forest Hills 71st Avenue Station on the E, F, M and R lines and also the Q23 bus.
