VIREO HEALTH NEW YORK – HOME DELIVERY FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA
Vireo Health New York is part of the Vireo Health Network. Vireo Health focuses on connecting people who need medical marijuana with qualified doctors who can support them, and then getting those patients the medicine they need.
Vireo Health has an online shopping portal where you can order various cannabis-based medicines for pick up or delivery to their county network. Vireo Health is even offering free delivery for a limited time to select areas. They emphasize the importance of getting this medicine to the patients who need it, and often those who need it most are unable to leave their homes to visit a greenhouse or dispensary.
New York is only a medical marijuana state, and you won’t find anything remotely recreational about Vireo Health New York’s interface or content. For now, they are purely focused on the medicinal benefits of cannabis. However, they are well positioned to expand to include recreational products if New York fully legalizes in the future.

Portland-based Stemless is United States focused with an emphasis in recreational states. However, Stemless has a progressive and innovative business model that improves on several well-established conventions. It has garnered positive press and heavy hitting investors and is likely to rapidly expand with each new legalization.
