Cannabis buying platform company Eaze announced on Wednesday it’s entered the Los Angeles market.
The Eaze platform lets users buy cannabis for delivery from local licensed dispensaries, leading some to dub the San Francisco-based company the “Uber of marijuana.”
Eaze has also drawn attention by being the cannabis industry’s best-funded start-up after raising more than $25 million in early investment. It’s not only an investor hit, but has been something of a media darling in its hometown as a convenient combination of cannabis and tech.
In LA, the company will partner with two dispensaries, The Clinik, and Perennial Holistic Wellness Center. The company already was making deliveries in the San Francisco Bay and San Jose areas, and in San Diego.
“We’re excited to work with our new partner The Clinik, as well as Perennial Holistic Wellness Center to bring Angelenos safe, legal access to cannabis,” said Jim Patterson, CEO of Eaze.
“We’re thrilled to be utilizing the Eaze platform to enable a large-scale delivery operation which helps lay the groundwork for a sustainable industry here in Southern California,” Clinik founder Joby Alloway said in a statement.
Eaze says it has more than 350,000 users in California.
