NEW YORK, N.Y., February 12, 2020 – Etain Health announced today the release of its Ground Flower Pods, New York’s first portable, vaporizable medical cannabis flower product to come to market.  The new refillable pods will be available at the Etain Health dispensaries in New York City, Yonkers, Kingston, and Syracuse, beginning Thursday, February 13, 2019.

The Ground Flower Pods are compatible with a handheld vaporizer, a small portable device that is simple to use. The new product is unique to the market as it offers a discreet delivery system for on the go use. This new product will provide medical cannabis patients with an alternative method to take their medicine in   Each of Etain Health’s Flower Pods contain 350mg of active cannabinoids – a total of 700mg per 3.5g package – in a 20:1 THC:CBD ratio in Indica and Sativa strains.

Etain Health sells the only pure oil vaporizer on the market in New York State and has designed its vaporizers to be the strongest and purest possible, free of any unpleasant or unhealthy added ingredients. Additionally, Etain Health has the only vaporizable flower option on the market to offer refills, an economical option for New York patients.

Hillary Peckham, Etain Health’s Chief Operations Office and co-founder said “Etain has always been a leader in the New York market when it comes to providing patients with a variety of high-quality medical cannabis products.  We are excited to bring this to the New York market and better serve our patients.”

The new Etain Flower Pods are easy to use, effective and economical. Once the pre-filled pod is placed into the vaporizer, the ground flower is gently heated below combustion activating the cannabinoids in a smokeless vapor which avoids some byproducts of smoking. The vapor is then inhaled delivering approximately 4.5mgs of active cannabinoids per one 4 second inhalation. Pods are refillable with Etain’s ground flower refills, also on sale in dispensaries. Etain is proud to directly offer patients the unprocessed, unadulterated flower that makes our oil products some of the highest quality cannabis on the market.

Dr. Kenneth Weinberg, a Board-Certified Emergency Medicine physician and New York State registered cannabis physician explains “It is clear to me that vaping cannabis products has many advantages over smoking them.   Because there is no combustion, patients are not exposed to the toxins associated with burning and their attendant harmful effects on the lungs. In addition, the product being vaped has all the minor cannabinoids and terpenes that occur naturally in the plant, providing their own benefits. Finally, obtaining products from the dispensary provides the assurance that comes with knowing they are lab tested, free of impurities and with measured, reproducible quantities of ingredients. This is not the case with products obtained on the street.”
