Columbia Care's patent-pending controlled-dose, solid-fill capsules contain a powder, that unlike liquid-fill capsules, do not carry the risk of leakage. This new product will make administering and storing medical marijuana medicines more convenient, consistent and efficacious due to the precision of dosing. In some cases, this delivery method may extend the intended benefits of the medicine beyond that of a tincture or vaporization oil, resulting in fewer doses per day and potentially better long-term symptom control.
The New York State Department of Health approved Columbia Care's controlled-dose, solid-fill capsule for dispensing in all four of Columbia Care's New York-based dispensaries. The new capsule will be offered in three different formulations to serve the needs of individual patients and their particular conditions. In 2017, Columbia Care plans to make these products available in several of its other licensed jurisdictions throughout the United States beginning with Arizona, Delaware, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington D.C.
