Cyber Monday is the day that many savvy consumers go online to get the best deals on the web. You can find watches, lingerie, supplements, bath stuffs, jewelry and more on sale, but this year, New York medical cannabis patients will likely have the best Cyber Monday they’ve had in years: medical marijuana is going on sale with free delivery to the doorstep.

Vireo Health is one of the elite five who are licenced to produce and distribute medical medical cannabis in New York State. For those in the Big Apple with a qualifying condition, you’re going to want to jot this one down: www.vireohealthny.com. That’s where the $25 off coupon (on orders over $100) will be, along with a combinable promotion for free home delivery, (usually priced at $20.) So theoretically, one could get $100 dollars worth of cannabis for $55, without leaving their house. Not too shabby.
“Vireo’s Cyber Monday sale will help make our products even more affordable for patients during the holiday season,” Ari Hoffnung, CEO of Vireo Health of New York told SILive. “We also hope that by adopting familiar e-commerce promotional strategies, like those employed by Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy, we’ll be able to combat the lingering stigma associated with marijuana and its medicinal use.”
Stigmas are falling away from cannabis left and right as the old, outlaw ways of the herb become fond memories of how we got here and legitimacy becomes the way that we stay here and thrive. From upping compliance games to participating in national consumer celebration days, cannabis is really rather the upstanding plant.
In-store pickup will also be available and that means that the cannabis will be ready and waiting for a patient when they arrive. There are four Vireo dispensaries, including in Queens and White Plains, but they do deliver to the NYC metropolitan area.
“We strive to continually improve and refine our own patients’ digital experience. Our patients can now virtually consult with our pharmacists, conveniently order online and have our medications delivered straight to their door. All of this is possible without leaving the comfort of their own home, which is especially important to our homebound patients,” Hoffnung added.
Remember to be on the ball though! Only the first 1,000 patients will receive the discount.
