Curaleaf New York Teams With CanPay To Offer Electronic Payment To Medical Cannabis Patients

Curaleaf to Launch Medical Cannabis Delivery Service, Starting in the Hudson Valley, In the Coming Weeks

NEW YORK:  Curaleaf New York announced that it is teaming up with CanPay to give patients a quicker, easier and cashless option to pay for medical cannabis products. By working with CanPay, Curaleaf continues to expand access to life-changing treatments that provide relief for thousands of patients suffering from cancer, PTSD, chronic pain and other conditions.

This announcement comes in advance of Curaleaf’s planned launch of a new home delivery service, which is expected to begin operating in the Hudson Valley in the coming weeks. All delivery service for medical cannabis will utilize and be paid for through the CanPay app.

CanPay is the world’s first and largest transparent debit payment solution for the cannabis industry that allows cannabis patients to pay for purchases straight from a checking account. Patients with a valid driver’s license, checking account and working email address can easily create an account on the CanPay app or website. After registering for CanPay, patients will easily and quickly be able to receive medical cannabis home delivery or pay for medical cannabis products at the Curaleaf dispensary.

“Curaleaf is committed to expanding access to this critical treatment option that has already improved the quality of life for thousands of New Yorkers,” said Michelle Bodner, CEO of Curaleaf New York. “We are excited to work with CanPay to provide an easy, cashless payment option for patients and look forward to launching our new home delivery service in the coming weeks.”

“This partnership with Curaleaf is about helping thousands of medical cannabis patients across New York get access to much-needed medicine in a way that is safe and familiar,” said Dustin Eide, CEO of CanPay. “Rather than having to leave their home, visiting an ATM, taking out cash, and paying the associated fees, Curaleaf’s patients can enjoy the convenience of paying with CanPay at the time of their delivery; and it is totally free for them to use. Not only does signing up for CanPay take just a few minutes, paying with CanPay is highly secure and allows medical cannabis patients to shop like they do everywhere else.”

Curaleaf New York operates medical cannabis dispensaries in Newburgh, Plattsburgh and Forest Hills, Queens that provide patients with access to medical-grade cannabis products and counseling. In addition, Curaleaf New York will be opening a fourth location in Carle Place on Long Island in November
