A Forest Hills dispensary is offering a $25 deal on their in-house cannabis vape pens, tinctures and tablets as part of the campaign “Live Green, Save Green” to help patients afford high quality medical marijuana products.

Curaleaf, located at 107-18 70th Rd., said the cannabis vape pens sell for around $70 throughout the rest of New York state and reassured the quality of the lab-tested cannabis oil in their slim vape pens.

“Curaleaf understands that New York patients require more affordable pricing on the medical cannabis treatment they need to manage their pain and live more comfortably,” Curaleaf President Michelle Bodner said. “We are proud to offer a variety of new options in the coming weeks and months that provide that affordability while also providing greater quality with natural, PEG-free ingredients and our new cannabis grown by and for New Yorkers.”

According to a press release, the tinctures, pens and tablets come with varying levels of THC, the main psychoactive chemical in marijuana, or CBD, another component of marijuana which is FDA approved to treat pediatric epilepsy.

“Curaleaf New York believes in providing the best options for New York’s patients,” Bodner concluded. “We are committed to researching and pursuing new ways for patients to benefit from cannabis, from continually improving products already on the market to working with the State to approve of selling ground flower.”

The campaign runs throughout December with more products becoming available later on, according to Curaleaf.
