No longer is cannabis delivery necessarily a call to a black market dealer. Legalization and entrepreneurial innovation are making cannabis consumption more convenient, which is likely expanding the market to different demographics. CNET, which published a trio of articles on the cannabis industry, explored the rapidly changing delivery business model, looking at Flash Buds, SpeedWeed, Nugg, Eaze, Meadow, CleverTree and Fruitful.
Eaze might be the front-runner in this growing field. The startup got $1.5 million in backing in 2014 and another $10 million this year, making it the best-funded cannabis delivery company in the San Francisco Bay area. Eaze now has 50 employees, up from 13 when it launched in July 2014. It’s also recruited thousands of blue T-shirted “brand ambassadors,” who pass out promo codes and get a commission for every customer they sign up.
According to the article, Meadow is likely the closest rival, though neither company discloses revenue.
