The fact of the matter is that society just doesn’t fear cannabis like they used to, especially after the medical community released information indicating that medicinal cannabis has the potential to be an incredible alternative treatment option.

Yes, in the advent of the delivery app market, companies have sought to include, in their delivery offerings, the ability for consumers to order cannabis and cannabis-related products like tinctures, edibles, and CBD products. When California legalized the recreational use of cannabis in 2018, the industry exploded with excitement. Initially, however, weed delivery companies were still restricted to operating within certain areas of the state. In Northern California, where more than a couple of weed connoisseur reside, many cities refused to allow their citizens to have weed delivered. According to the Sacramento Bee, “residents in about 40% of the state have to drive 60 or more miles” to buy legal weed.
While the United States tries to figure out how to operate a cannabis-friendly nation, cannabis companies in Canada are working to increase access to residents across the country. Aside from weed delivery being convenient for people who don’t feel like driving to a dispensary, the ease of access is crucial for medical marijuana patients who truly are incapable of leaving their homes.
