So you’re interested in starting a marijuana delivery business? This type of business is part of a new and growing field that is ready for you to jump in! Before you dive in head first, you need to follow several key steps to guarantee that your marijuana delivery business is successful.
Know the Law
It is important to know what the rules and regulations in your state. The last thing anyone wants is to invest their time, money, and talent into a new business venture, only to find out that it is not a legal enterprise. Currently there are four states and the District of Columbia that allow recreational marijuana use. There are nineteen additional states that allow the use of medical marijuana. Each state has different laws. Be sure that the area you live in permits the operation of marijuana delivery services.
Pick a Name
Do you already have an idea of what want your marijuana delivery company’s name to be? There are many creative names out there for a marijuana delivery business. For example, there is a dispensary and delivery service in the San Francisco area called Green Cross. That is an awesome play on words, since they help people. You will want to be sure your name is catchy and relates to your new marijuana delivery business.
Get Your Medical Marijuana Card
Get your own medical marijuana card. There are many ailments that qualify a person to be a valid recipient of a medical marijuana ID card. This will allow you to confidently recommend the type of marijuana you will sell to your patients. Being reputable and trustworthy is important in owning a marijuana business. You will be considered a caregiver to all patients who order from your marijuana delivery service. They will surely appreciate the wonderful medicine you are offering them.
Have a Good Vehicle
Having a good car is of upmost importance with a marijuana delivery service. It does not have to be a new or fancy, but it does have to be reliable. It would be detrimental to your marijuana delivery business if your car broke down all the time. In a business where word of mouth is key, the only reputation you want is one of quality and service. Make sure to get the vehicle serviced regularly and keep all insurance, tags, and registration up to date. Last but not least, be sure to never run out of gas!
Get Your Paperwork In
You need to be licensed by the state in which you plan to operate your marijuana delivery service. You also must be licensed by the city or cities you will service. Some counties may require this as well. It is important to make sure you have all proper documentation before opening for business.
Find a Grower
To deliver medical marijuana, you need marijuana. So, you’ll need to find a grower. The state you live in may allow you to grow the product yourself. If it doesn’t, or you just aren’t interested in harvesting your own crop, the best way to find a supplier is to join a cooperative, or “co-op”. This is a group of like-minded individuals that join together for the purpose of growing and enjoying medical marijuana.
These are the first key steps you need to follow in order to start your own medical marijuana delivery service. It may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but just take it step by step and you’ll be just fine. Following our simple instructions will go a long way in ensuring your business is successful.
