San Francisco cannabis delivery flourished during COVID-19. And, like other forms of now-popular e-commerce, it will continue to thrive due to the benefits it offers consumers. Getting weed delivered has become a habit for many.

In this post, we will explore how buying weed has changed since COVID-19 lockdowns. We were curious about what was drawing consumers to online dispensaries so we looked at: 

  • Benefits of online delivery
  • Statistics on the online shopping explosion
  • How to order cannabis online for delivery

The Countless Benefits of Online Delivery 

During COVID-19, cannabis sales grew exponentially in the US. A huge part of this growth has resulted from e-commerce sales. 

Like other retailers, cannabis dispensaries leveraged technology and the need for internet shopping during the pandemic. The trend toward online ordering and delivery has helped create shopping opportunities that feel safe for consumers. 

Many benefits accompany online delivery. Beyond the convenience of ordering from the comfort of your own home, ordering cannabis online can lower stress and offer greater selection and time to explore and learn. 

What would you choose to do if you could skip traffic and parking and get cannabis delivered right to your door? Many are opting to shop online, simply to avoid the headache of city driving, which further helps those who consume cannabis to relax. 

San Francisco cannabis delivery allows consumers to take their time learning about different strains, which in turn supports learning about cannabis and making informed, supportive selections. 

Statistics and News on Cannabis Consumption During COVID-19

Because of COVID-19 lockdowns, online dispensaries saw massive upward growth. A Flowhub article states that “in the 30 days following the March 13 declaration of a national emergency, new delivery customer sign-ups jumped by nearly 60%.” Sales increases followed. 

Many online dispensaries saw massive growth in their sales and customer bases. 

A TechCrunch article from December 2020 claimed, “Experts estimate that the pandemic accelerated the shift to e-commerce by five years.” In other words, COVID-19 caused online shopping for cannabis to grow five times the expected rate in a single year.
