Providing patients with quality cannabis for health and wellness has been our focus for the last decade. Along the way, we’ve learned exactly how to cultivate the cleanest, purest cannabis strains from hand-grown, healthy and happy plants. While cannabis flower is a marvel, we believe that cannabis isn’t one-size-fits all. So, in addition to offering fresh cured flower, we also craft quality, lab-tested cannabis products, which are available in multiple product formats. Lots of dispensaries just focus on cannabis. At Curaleaf, we focus on your relationship with cannabis. We value your history with it — or lack thereof — and your feelings towards this ancient plant that’s brought us together. Set up a private consultation or just come in to learn more - you can ask us anything. This is our forte. That’s why our products are available in a wide variety of strains, terpenes, delivery methods, dosages, cannabinoids and ratios. Something for everyone.


Harmony Foundation of New Jersey:

Harmony’s CEO, Shaya Brodchandel, and COO, Yuhuda Meer, assumed leadership of the company in 2016. Harmony began dispensing medicinal cannabis to registered New Jersey (NJ) patients in 2018. We established our relationship with the Department of Health (DOH) over 5 years ago, fostered that relationship through the application process and have now been successfully dispensing our own product for almost 3 years. Harmony moved seamlessly from certification to production, dispensing our high-quality product almost immediately upon securing our license. We grew from zero transactions to 45,000 in our first year alone. During the intervening three years we have continued growing from a new startup to a mid-sized company with almost 90 employees. From the beginning we have proudly been a NJ company – headquartered in New Jersey and wholly led by New Jersey natives. Our profits are reinvested in our business here in NJ and we answer only to our patients in this state and the regulators who care for the people of New Jersey. These have been challenging but exciting times to be part of the NJ Medicinal Marijuana Program. First, in early 2020, we were hit with the Covid-19 pandemic which, with the effective policies and measures taken by the Governor and the DOH, we have fortunately weathered and remain as strong as ever. Our expert cultivators and technicians currently have over ten thousand (10,000+) plants of diverse genetic selections totaling strains at all stages of development—from seedling to harvest-ready. New strains are being developed monthly. We have become experts in the use of the Containerized Bench system for maximizing output and reliability of delivery. Now, after the November 2020 success of the adult use referendum, we stand on the precipice of an entirely new industry with new markets and a whole new range of industry participants. Harmony looks forward to continuing our role as the only fully independent NJ Alternative Treatment Center (ATC) serving our residents first and foremost.
