The Weed Delivery App We've Been Waiting For In Los Angeles Has Arrived
Guys, the day we've all been waiting for has finally come: a weed delivery app will soon be launching in Los Angeles. Nestdrop, an alcohol delivery app available on iOS and Android that launched in June, is planning on rolling out their weed delivery service sometime in the next few weeks.
Marijuana entrepreneurs in other cities have already launched similar apps—like Eaze in the Bay Area and Canary in Washington state—but we'll have something to call our own.
The company promises that their weed deliveries will get to you in under an hour. There's a $25 minimum order that comes with free delivery. They've partnered with multiple dispensaries throughout the city so that they're able to get it to their customers quickly.
How it works is that users would need to go through a registration process before getting to use the weed function on the app. That includes uploading a photo of your doctor's recommendation and medical ID onto the app. Once it gets approved by a local dispensary, you'll be able to start ordering. When you get your deliver, you'll have to show your ID.
More details will be coming soon on the Nestdrop website.
