Eaze: Supporting the Legal Market with Fast Delivery
Why is fast delivery essential to the legal cannabis market? It’s simple. Without a quick and safe alternative, customers will keep buying from unlicensed retailers.
The vast majority of Americans in states with legal markets don’t live near legal dispensaries. In California, for example, 40 percent of the state has to drive 60 miles or more to find a licensed dispensary! For a variety of reasons, many people can’t make the drive. Some are mobility or transportation challenged, others are disabled or sick, and some people simply don’t have the time. Whatever the reason, these consumers shouldn’t be forced into the illegal market (and communities shouldn't be deprived of tax revenue!).
Eaze is a technology platform that supports the legal market by enabling fast, on-demand delivery. Our mission is to enhance safe access, educate people about cannabis as a tool for wellness, and drive smart cannabis policies. We are also proud to support leaders who are helping to correct past wrongs. Most recently, we were honored to support Code for America's Clear My Record program with a $100,000 donation that will support expungements for 100,000 non-violent drug related crimes.
To kick off the partnership, Eaze will donate $4.20 for every delivery on April 20, to Code for America’s “Justice at Scale” campaign to support the clearance of an estimated 250,000 low-level, drug-related criminal records. Eaze and Code for America will also explore ways the company can provide engineering support to clear millions of low-level records across the United States. The partnership gives Eaze customers the ability to help address widely-acknowledged errors from the War on Drugs and reduce the negative impact of cannabis-related convictions while celebrating legal cannabis during 4/20 week.
Eaze technology connects the dots between licensed retailers and adult consumers. Adults can buy legal cannabis products – which are delivered by employees of local, licensed dispensaries – through our online marketplace. Our technology tracks every cannabis product, in real-time, from the moment it leaves the dispensary until the delivery is complete. Every customer’s identity and age is verified twice: first when products are ordered, second when they’re delivered. Eaze also creates an electronic manifest of every delivery and takes numerous additional steps to ensure that product diversion does not occur.
In 2018, we launched Eaze Wellness, a marketplace for hemp derived CBD products, which ships to 42 states and Washington, DC.
