Organized and operated by a team of doctors, scientists and industry professionals, Vireo Health in Albany is a medical marijuana dispensary that strives to help each of their patients attain an improved quality of life through medical marijuana. History: The founder of Vireo Health, Dr. Kyle Kingsley, spent many years working in emergency medicine, often with patients who were suffering from severe side effects or had overdosed on their prescription medications. At the same time he treated these cases, a few of his other patients reported success using medical marijuana to manage or alleviate their pain. Witnessing those patients regain their health using this alternative treatment inspired Dr. Kingsley to open his first medical marijuana company, Minnesota Medical Solutions. Earning their merit-based cannabis dispensary license in 2014 from the state of Minnesota, Dr. Kingsley wanted to expand medical cannabis’ benefits into newly legalized New York through another company: Vireo Health of New York. The company won their New York dispensary license in July 2015, and since opening their medical marijuana dispensary doors in Albany and throughout New York, they have helped hundreds of New York medical cannabis patients relieve their suffering using medical marijuana treatments.

Highly energetic greater is a young man and be polite. Another woman is there and kind(staff) but my personal evaluation went in a less than informative way. I am Not to brag but I am actually educated in cannabis. Not a snobby young punk with his sub woofer blasting at the red light. I am a small business owner with Crohn’s disease. I went here looking for help. I asked the gentleman directly if the vaporizer (eliquid) had : P.G / v.g. P.E.G or multi chain try glycerides (m.c.t) used as a thinning agent in the final process of the manufacturing of med marijuana hash oil in order for the viscosity to be thin enough for their sub par heavily over priced vape cartridge wicks actually do what they where made for.. care about your customers.. how can a “pharmacist “ that works at this dispensary know less about the pharmacology of the products he sells and suggests than the PATIENT?! I was sold a vape cartridge with m.c.t in it after I asked if it were in it.. Spent 647.00$ got hosed
Outrageous pricing. Was told there wasn’t something specific mixed in their vape... got the medicine home read ingredients to find that is exactly what it is mixed with. Went to PharmaCannis the next day and was more then please with the product and service double the size vape cartridges for same price to half. They hold longer hours but my experience here was not up to par. Would not recommend to anyone.
first off this place is very hard to find (no signs & whited out windows that look like a closed storefront) second, they require an appointment which I wasn't told PRIOR to driving an hour down and back. 3rd they're expensive and 4th they only take cash, 5th there only open 4 days a week! needless to say I'm not going to try them again. I'm got enough crap to deal with to put up with all these hoops to jump through! I'll be going to etain next.
New to mm. what do they carry? How do you decide what is good for your pain? How much do they cost?
The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable. Getting an appointment was convenient using the online booking tool. All of my questions were answered before I left. So far I am happy with the product. The vape and capsules have been very helpful for chronic nerve pain and muscle spasms. Hours are limited so I just had to plan accordingly- I got an appointment the same day. Would absolutely recommend.

I have been to all three dispensaries in Albany. I have only used vapes from all three dispensaries so I am only comparing those in the high THC versions. Vireo is great my opinion. Great quality and pricing is good. Service was great. Hours, not so much.
This was my first place I've gotten mm from. I got the strong THC oral consumption oil for 177 dollars. It's 26 mls and about .25-.5 does the trick so it's not a horrible price. I'm going to try the vaporizer next
How do I make an appointment? I called and I can seem to leave a message to the albany one. Answering machine sends me to a different location.
