President and CEO Kelly Abbott States, “We are extremely excited to sign a distribution agreement with Kiaro and we will immediately begin planning and executing for all last mile operations. Our objective is to become the Uber of cannabis in Canada and this takes us one step closer to our goal.” Abbott continues, “Cannabis delivery is expensive and often through antiquated courier services – with consumers waiting over a week to receive their items. With ParcelPal, customers will receive their cannabis products safely within an hour. Our technology enables seamless integration with any cannabis retail outlet or eCommerce platform.”
President and CEO of Kiaro, Daniel Petrov states, “The distribution partnership with ParcelPal illustrates our ongoing commitment to normalize cannabis use, by improving product accessibility. Cannabis can enhance life enjoyment, when used responsibly, and the agreement enables us to support more Canadians in this pursuit. By expediting cannabis delivery, we hope to legitimize the industry and encourage cannabis curiosity, exploration and education.”
Customers who order cannabis or alcohol through the ParcelPal platform will be required to upload and verify their identities. Users that are under the age within their jurisdictions will not be allowed into this vertical on the application. The identity verification system ensures that the person is of age and that the identity is in fact real, and it is checked twice – once before and once upon delivery. Consumers who order product will have to be the person to receive the order. ParcelPal’s technology complies with all local, provincial and federal laws.
Kiaro is a Vancouver-based cannabis brand that carries a variety of curated products appealing to individuals who wish to enhance their life enjoyment through cannabis. The company plans to open a number of fully compliant retail stores across Canada and, through its stores and e-commerce platform, offer a customized omni-channel cannabis experience that is inviting, convenient and appealing, allowing consumers to choose safe and reputable products. Kiaro’s name derives from the Italian word chiaroscuro, meaning “to emerge from the darkness into light” — a nod to the new era of cannabis legalization.
