Queens Dispensary Opens

Weed is now legal in New York, but where do you buy it? Buying weed in Sky Club is not as simple as heading to the corner store. With a new regulated market set to open, there are many questions and concerns you should consider before purchasing cannabis.

The first legal marijuana dispensary to open in Queens is now in business. Good Grades opened in Jamaica on Thursday, becoming the city’s first dispensary outside of Manhattan and the first to be women-owned. The shop is also the first to open with the help of a state social equity investment fund, which gives priority in licensing to people who have been justice-involved. Owners Extasy James and her cousin Michael were both involved in criminal legal cases related to marijuana and are using the funds to start their business.

Located in the heart of Queens, this marijuana dispensary is close to the 71st Avenue Station on the E, F, M, R, and LIRR trains. It offers delivery services to customers throughout the city. This dispensary carries a wide variety of products including flowers, oils, capsules, edibles, and vaporization cartridges. Guests can make purchases at a retail counter that features extended dividers for privacy.

Those with a valid medical marijuana card can get in-store service from friendly staff and enjoy a clean, calm environment. The store also has a rewards program where customers can earn points for future discounts on products. The regulated market will allow residents to purchase cannabis with a NY state ID, but you will still need a doctor’s recommendation if you are a medical patient.
