Columbia Care, a medical cannabis company, announced it will open its first medical cannabis dispensary in Delaware to qualifying patients June 29 .

With the opening of this facility, also known as a compassion center, Columbia Care becomes only the second medical cannabis operator in Delaware and the first to offer dose-metered pharmaceutical-quality cannabis-based medicines.

The dispensary will be staffed by a dedicated team trained to provide the highest level of professionalism, compassion, confidentiality, security and respect for patients and their conditions.

The Columbia Care Smyrna dispensary will provide a comprehensive portfolio of cured leaf products from numerous strains scientifically selected and carefully grown by Columbia Care’s team of horticulturists. These products will be offered alongside Columbia Care’s dose-metered pharmaceutical-quality offerings, which will be expanded in the coming months. These pharmaceutical-quality offerings include tinctures, vaporization oils and oral capsules in three CBD to THC ratios; high CBD, high THC and equal CBD to THC. Columbia Care products begin with a cultivation process that takes place in the company’s controlled-environment agricultural production facility in Milford. The manufacturing and refinement processes take place in highly controlled labs with trained chemists who follow strict quality control guidelines to ensure product safety and consistency. Products undergo independent batch testing for various measures to ensure the highest levels of purity.

To access state-licensed medical marijuana Compassion Centers in Delaware, a Delaware licensed physician with a bona fide medical relationship with the patient must certify that the patient has a qualifying condition, and the patient must complete and submit a patient application to the Division of Public Health Medical Marijuana Program. Patients with a valid medical marijuana card issued by the Medical Marijuana Program are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Columbia Care from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
