Albany – The Trump administration’s move to crack down on legalized marijuana isn’t stopping at least one New York medical marijuana grower from expanding its product line.
Etain Inc. has become the first marijuana grower to receive state Health Department approval to begin production of newly allowed products, including a cannabis lozenge and ground marijuana flowers that can be used in vaporizers, the Daily News has learned.
The company is also awaiting permission to begin production of a water-soluble marijuana powder that patients can mix on their own, like powdered Gatorade.
“We are trying to be on the cutting edge of offering a variety to patients,” said Hillary Peckham, Etain’s founder and chief operations officer.
Etain, which operates dispensaries in Murray Hill and Yonkers, hopes to have the new products on shelves sometime in March.
