Are you or one of your loved ones thinking about trying medical cannabis because of a health condition?
We created this video, “The ABCs of Medical Cannabis,” to answer some of the questions you may have.
Robert Salvatore, our Patient Outreach Coordinator, explains the different types of cannabis medicine, how they work, how to become a medical marijuana (MMJ) patient in Rhode Island and what to expect when you come to a dispensary like ours, here in Providence, RI.
We also have lots of helpful information here on our website. Be sure to check out Cannabis 101: A Beginner’s Guide to Medical Cannabis, which is jam-packed with all the information you need to know.

We're introducing a new item to our menu – cannabis oil distillate, made right here in our lab at the Slater Center.
Distillates are among the most desirable medical cannabis concentrates because they are highly potent and extremely versatile. They can be dabbed or vaped, or they can be infused into other cannabis products, including edibles, tinctures and topicals. Given the extremely high concentration of THC in these distillates, the effects are felt almost immediately.
We make our distillate using benchtop short-path distillation. We start with supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction to carefully separate and extract THC from plant materials and cannabinoids. This crude oil is further processed, purified and refined, removing most of the color, all of the odor and other unwanted biproducts. The result is pure, solventless delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol .
Purity and potency are among the factors that set distillates apart from other cannabis concentrates, and these can vary widely from one source to the next, depending on the quality of the flower and the processing method.
Our distillates have a THC concentration of approximately 90 percent, as confirmed through testing by an independent lab.
This high concentration of THC makes distillate a very potent form of cannabis medicine, so can use less medication to achieve the same effects. When dabbed or vaped, the effects are felt nearly immediately. It also can be added to flower in a rolling paper or bowl, to intensify the effects without altering the aroma or flavor.
Distillates also can be used an ingredient in edibles, providing the desired effect without the plant-like taste or smell. They can be consumed on their own or dropped sublingually under the tongue. They also work in topicals, which are absorbed through the skin.
This versatility makes distillate an appealing choice for medical patients, allowing them to choose the manner of consumption that is most comfortable for them.
The Thomas C. Slater Compassion Center now offers online ordering and curbside pickup.
Anyone who is a registered patient, caregiver or authorized purchaser can place their order online at slatercenter.com/menu and pick up their order at our new drive-thru location, adjacent to the main dispensary.
Online orders will be ready for pickup within 30 minutes, if placed between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends. Any order placed after-hours will be available for pick up the following day.
NOTE: You must have your medical card, photo ID and payment to pick up an online order.
The Slater Center is offering online ordering and curbside pickup as a safer, more efficient way to purchase medical cannabis during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. By reducing the number of people inside the dispensary, we hope to protect our patients and employees from possible exposure to coronavirus (COVID-19) and other illness.
This service is available only for patients, caregivers and authorized purchasers who are already registered at the Slater Center.
We also continue to welcome new patients from Rhode Island and from out of state. Anyone with approved patient documentation from any state and a government-issue photo ID can register as a patient at the Slater Center. New patient registrations are accepted seven days a week from 10:30 a.m. until the close of business each day.
We also will continue to offer walk-in service. Patients who come to the dispensary will be asked to place their order using an express kiosk and the order will be filled within minutes. However, we strongly encourage everyone to use online ordering and curbside pickup as a faster, healthier way to obtain your medical cannabis.
DO NOT COME TO THE DRIVE THRU UNTIL YOU RECEIVE EMAIL CONFIRMATION THAT YOUR ORDER IS READY FOR PICKUP
