Columbia Care is a Rochester Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Columbia Care proudly serves the medical marijuana patient community of Monroe County, New York, as the first licensed delivery company in the state. Assisting patients and caregivers unable to visit their storefront dispensary facilities, Columbia Care delivers their high-quality medical cannabis goods to homebound patients who qualify for their compassionate delivery services. History: Columbia Care’s founder petitioned to open their dispensary due to their personal experience witnessing medical marijuana heal his mother’s arthritis and restore her quality of life. An active woman who loved writing letters to her family, his mother slowly lost control of her hands and grew weaker and less happy. The founder’s family friend suggested he give his mother cannabis oil as a treatment, and within merely weeks, his mother regained mobility in her hands and energy along with it. Inspired by this radical change, the founder organized a coalition of like-minded individuals seeking to help others through medical marijuana to launch what would eventually become Columbia Care. In 2013, they opened their first marijuana dispensary, and in early 2017, the state of New York licensed Columbia Care as the first cannabis delivery service dedicated to helping homebound Rochester cannabis patients to access high-grade medical marijuana treatment.
