SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A San Francisco start-up is launching a new way to order medical marijuana on an app and get the medication delivered to our door.
Eaze bills itself as “Uber for Marijuana.”
The service, which is launching Tuesday, verifies a user’s medical marijuana eligibility automatically.
Then patients can choose what strains and forms of the medication they want and put the order in through the App. A “professional caregiver” then drives to the patient’s home and hand delivers the pot.
“The process of acquiring medical marijuana can be slow, cumbersome and unpredictable. Often patients have to search multiple dispensaries manually each time they order as stock often varies. Verification of medical eligibility can take 24 hours and has to be repeated with each dispensary,” Keith McCarty, founder and CEO of Eaze says in a written statement. “Eaze’s technology automates all of that so each patient can have a consistent, comfortable experience — and can focus on getting better.”
Eaze joins a growing number of dispensaries that have closed their retail stores and opened up delivery services.
