After nearly fifteen months of growing pains, California is set to roll out the official annual licenses for legal cannabis sales to 40 million residents. In an age of convenience where just about anything can be ordered through your phone, marijuana delivery might just be the most exciting opportunity for consumers. Existing delivery companies under old rules are finding the leap to full compliance under California’s new legalization laws a daunting task. Currently, unlicensed cannabis delivery companies are all over the state serving their customers with licensed and unlicensed product. “It’s a bit like Whack-a-mole,” said a spokesperson for California’s Bureau of Cannabis Control. “We shut one down and another two pop up.” Unlicensed companies are able to sell unlicensed (and untested) product for prices well below their fully licensed counterparts. Therein lies the primary reason California’s black market is thriving; that and exorbitant taxes on legal sales. Consumers don’t see the inner workings of legal and illegal cannabis—they just want their weed. Once annual licenses are granted, the state will turn its attention to shutting the doors on hundreds of unlicensed, illegal companies. Too much tax revenue is being lost. New Delivery Brands Connecting with New Consumers A new fully licensed premium cannabis delivery service called Flowsent has entered the marijuana delivery market with a fresh take on home delivery. With service to east bay cities in and around Oakland as well as Marin County north of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sonoma County and Sacramento, the company will be delivering to over 85 cities throughout California. Flowsent is quickly establishing a name for delivering affordable top shelf cannabis products with exceptional customer service. The founding team behind Flowsent has deep connections in the industry built over the last decade. They are able to lean on those relationships to source premium flower and concentrates with favorable pricing and terms. That allows Flowsent to pass savings on to the customers and offset some of the taxes. Flowsent has introduced a new weed subscription box program modeled after the wine industry. The company initially offered four marijuana subscription boxes: The Flow Box—a collection of favorite items from any category from flower to oil and edibles. The Goddess Club— collection of cannabis products for the goddess in your life. Keep Tahoe Green—a monthly offering of the best flower, pre rolls and experimental strains from anywhere in California. 710 Racing Club—this is where Flowsent shines. Through a partnership with Guild Extracts, Flowsent is able to offer a monthly dab bar in a box full of the best oil from the golden state. This year Flowsent has assembled the ‘Avengers’ of pot boxes—The Flowsentials 420 Box. For 4/20 this limited edition box has two ounces of the dankest weed from California’s top growers. For example, Fig Farms is a cultivator known for obsessing over breeding their own pristine genetics. Fig Farms won Best Indica Strain at High Time’s 2017 Cannabis Cup. They have a brand new strain, and Flowsent will get it first. That’s the caliber of product going into this year’s must-have weed box. Rumor has it there may be some THCa crystalline in there as well. But weed lovers will have to hurry, there’s only 100 boxes being offered.
