Kosher kush is not just the name of an award-winning Cannabis indica strain. Starting this month, as dispensaries open their doors for business across New York, it's also a caliber of medical marijuana that will be available from one of the state's five licensed growers.

Vireo Health of New York, one of the five organizations licensed to grow, manufacture, and dispense medical marijuana under the Compassionate Care Act, is now the first cannabis company to be certified as kosher from the Orthodox Union (OU), the largest and most widely recognized kosher certification agency in the world.

The OU's trademarked symbol (a U encircled by an O) will appear on medical cannabis products, including Vireo's oils, capsules, and vaporization cartridges, sold throughout the company's four dispensaries in Queens, White Plains, Binghamton, and Albany.
