What wonderful customer service. My husband was having trouble ordering his medicine online. Called the Albany dispensary(03/04/19) and left a message. That day Victoria called and talked to my husband. Then she emailed me and explained everything that needed to be done. Victoria also left valid contact information which helped today(03/05/19) when my husband’s account was still not working correctly. Victoria stayed on the line and talked me through the ordering procedure. She even offered to create a special time for pickup if needed. She was a god send. Thank you Victoria for helping us. Your customer service should be the standard for everyone.

We can't say enough nice things about Vireo in Albany! They make every visit or question simple to do and understand. I've been a customer since last September, and they are supportive, cheerful, and when I got the good news from my physician/surgeon that I was cancer free, I called the Vireo folks to tell them -- they were so excited! And they all mention it when I talk to them. I feel like it is a team effort here, keeping me healthy, and I am so happy to be part of the Vireo family. Bravo!

Review by Chris Hyatt

Good first dispensary experience. Staff are knowledgeable and extremely polite. I witnessed a few difficult customers and the staff were still aiming to help them and staying polite. I waited a little while in the office for a consult but they were busy filling prescriptions so it's understandable. They have everything documented which is helpful. Product documentation is great. First consult in person was straightforward and honest on where to start and goals. Not a big deal but if you fill out the paperwork online, you may still have to fill out a shorter form when you get there, so set aside some extra time. Can't stress it enough that if you're visiting here you should have all your paperwork in order. A couple people didn't have their stuff and get frustrated, and hold up the line and just make others frustrated. It's a heavily regulated pharmaceutical, it's going to need paperwork. Make sure to READ ALL of your New York Materials and Vireo's materials they send you and bring what you need and you'll have zero issues.


Fast, free delivery to my home. The questions I had were explained in easy to understand language. For once a pleasant experience buying online.

What is a Dispensary?

A dispensary is a store that sells special items or dispenses the specialized items. Cannabis or marijuana dispensariers started in the US some time in the early 1990’s when Dennis Peron opend the San Francisro Cannbis Buyers Club. Back then the cannabis dispensary faced a ton of hardships, but Dennis, his team and dream helped pave the future for all future recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. In 2014 the first recreational dispensary, 3D Cannabis opened it’s doors in Colorado. As of 4-1-19 33 states have medical dispensaries and 10 states have recreational dispensaries.

At a dispnsary one will find many differnt kinds of cannabis flowers (buds) and concentrates, edibles along with smoking untensils, but have a limited selection compared to online shops like Elev8 Glass Gallery. The dispensary also will have what is called a budtender to help you find what you are looking for. If you need help with cannabis info Elev8 Presents is a good resource.

What is the difference between a medical or recreational dispensary?

In realtiy medical and recreational dispensaries are the same thing. This all comes down to the states laws on cannabis. We feel cannabis is just like alcohol and medical will happen first and then recreational will follow, and so far history is showing this. Dispensaries are an excellent place for patients and recreational smokers alike to find the cannabis that best suits their needs!
