COLUMBIA CARE IS A PATIENT-CENTERED HEALTHCARE COMPANY SETTING THE STANDARD-OF-CARE FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA. WE HAVE FOUR KEY COMMITMENTS: -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Columbia Care is a Riverhead Medical Marijuana Dispensary Columbia Care’s Riverhead medical marijuana dispensary puts patients first, leading the New York medical cannabis industry by offering the highest level of patient care, product creation and educational resources. Setting the standard for dispensaries and medical marijuana professional care, Columbia Care dedicates themselves to exemplary safety, scientific leadership, expertise and compassionate care. History: The founder of Columbia Care’s personal connection to medical marijuana spurred him to create the patient-centric organization that stands today. His mother slowly was losing control of her hands due to severe rheumatoid, and as her condition worsened, she lost her quality of life, no longer able to be active or write letters to her family as she once did. His childhood friend, seeing the pain the founder’s family endured, recommended that his mother try cannabis oil to heal her joints as an alternative to her many prescription treatments. The medical cannabis dispensary founder successfully convinced his mother to try the cannabis oil, and after a few weeks of rubbing it into her hands, she began to regain her happiness and mobility. This radical difference inspired him to create a place where patients with similar debilitating conditions could find relief and regain their lost quality of life. Assembling a group of similar-minded professionals, Columbia Care opened their Riverhead medical marijuana dispensary doors in 2013, and have since expanded across the east coast to help thousands of Long Island patients achieve their wellness through the use of medical cannabis. Staff: Columbia Care’s Riverhead staff pride themselves on their cannabis knowledge and great rapport with their patients. Working hard to put patients at ease and make them feel at home, their dispensary facility offers a clinical and professional atmosphere that’s safe and welcoming. Columbia Care’s team are adept at walking patients through their cannabis products, answering any questions regarding which strain may best suit their needs, best methods of application, and any other questions patients may think to ask. Menu: Columbia Care Riverhead’s shelves offer a varied assortment of medical marijuana products to address as many patient needs as possible. They carry tinctures, liquid suspensions, vaporization oils and capsules in a variety of different THC to CBD ratios. As a vertically integrated dispensary, Columbia Care approaches every step of the cultivation process with the highest standards held, ensuring nothing but the highest quality and consistent medicine for their patients. Currently, Columbia Care can assist new Riverhead patients on an appointment basis only.

I received my medical marijuana here and it's amazing! I bought the vape pen and capsules and the combo works really well for me. I tried other dispensaries and didn't like the capsules and the vape wasn't as smooth. The staff here is extremely helpful and the pharmacist was so knowledgeable she answered all my questions and gave me exactly the products I needed. It's so much nicer inside then the other places too it is much safer and cleaner. The prices are high but i got a discount. I am finally out of pain so it's worth it

THIS PLACE IS OVER PRICED WITH POOR QUALITY PRODUCTS AND LITTLE VARIETY. The staff is very nice, but after visiting a dispensary in Queens, I will never be returning here. They only offer 3 different doses here. The highest CBD product has only 12 mg CBD per mL and it costs $55 for 7 mL. The Vireo dispensary offers an oral solution for about $155 for 25 mL with 50 mg of CBD per mL. Take the trip to queens or get it delivered from Vireo (if you live in west Nassau.) I know it seems like I work for them or something, but I'm just a huge advocate for them. I'm saving money and feeling much better after switching over to their products. Also, they don't charge you for Vape batteries or chargers and will give you as many as you want. The staff was SO MUCH more knowledgeable and informative at Vireo. Here, the "pharmacist" seemed to know a lot less about marijuana than she should have, and I felt like I was in a sales pitch situation. I will only be returning here out of sheer desperation.
The Riverhead technicians and front-of-house staff are really great. I learned a lot about marijuana from my experience at the Manhattan and Riverhead dispensaries. I will be coming back to visit soon!
The staff in Riverhead are knowledgeable they make you feel comfortable it's not their fault about the prices we have to vote Governor Cuomo out $20 goes for the medicine and $80 goes to the state of New York for tax but other than that I think it's great
I echo the other reviews. Gave it the college try but won't be going back. Unfortunately the dispensary gets the blame for a horribly designed system. An attractive storefront dispensary with Brinks-like security, offering lame over-priced synthetic pot extracts lab tested and approved by some blue-haired committee and prescribed by a for-rent doc who probably never tried the real stuff. and who you have to pay once-a-month to test your urine (for hard stuff, I guess). Like they say, a camel is a horse designed by a committee. It would be worth the aggravation if you could buy a product worth it. Call me when you have it.
I have been here a few times now. They have changed their product. These $100 vape suck. They are not in good housing. It's like NY has no pros behind the product. Col and Seattle has it perfect. The pricing is amazing and I'm NEVER IN PAIN when I go visit these places. I cannot believe he wrote this while cutting out smoking in NY. I pray that this will change. I wasted another $200 praying that these nasty vapes will be better and they are getting worst. Sad. I like this place thou. They care. My rating is for NY not so much this place but I still hate everything you carrry. Will not be coming back.
The dispensary itself is very nice. Unfortunately, the limited products that they are selling are either disguisting ie. tinture or do not contain enough product/per inhalation. For example in other states the buyer can choose a strain of marijuana. Once you choose the strain, on each inhalation you receive .5mg THC. Not so in NY. Here the choices are high/low THC and high/low CBD. Not to mention what a price difference. Other states $50./ vape oil cartridge. NY $100./voc. Oh wait probably most of us are on SSD, or the like and we receive 15% off.
Now what?? Who do we have to thank for this inadequate program.? Can we blame it on the dispensary?? Or is this dispensary following bogus laws written by some clueless individual(s)?
If this dispensary would like to stay in business, they best roll up their sleeves and join the fight for change. NY needs dispensaries comparable to CA, OR, CO. NOW!! Get rid of the high/low THC CBD selections. Increase the THC in the Vape oil cartridges and decrease the price. Stock flower/ bud. Each patient has different needs. The strain that is choosen is picked for their specific ailment and personal preference.

They seem like they want to help. I just am looking forward to NY being treated the SAME as the other States that have buds for OUR HEALTH! This crap that you drink is HORRIBLE but these guys had and still have vape but I need a higher THC to help. I will be writing another review after I go back. Let's see how these guys do... But it's the best in the area.... COME ON NY.... Let's catch up to the West Coast pros.... We would like to live a full life also... Let us have the BUDS!
Lie about availability of product. Condescending twit in charge. Only open one day a week. When the MMJ program fails in New York, it will be due to places like this one.
