Weedmaps Makes Purchasing Cannabis from Retailers Even Easier with In-App Ordering

Weedmaps, a leading online listings marketplace for cannabis consumers and businesses from WM Technology, Inc., announced today the launch of the brand’s enhanced iOS app that now includes ordering functionality. This new feature not only allows Weedmaps customers to browse and discover cannabis products and deals in their area, but it also allows for orders to be submitted directly with licensed retailers via a single, seamless in-app experience.

Previously, due to the complexities of federal and state regulations imposed on the cannabis industry at large, Weedmaps customers were only able to browse and discover products and licensed retailers before completing orders on a mobile web browser, away from the native app. Apple’s updated policy now allows Weedmaps customers to conduct their entire cannabis shopping experience from within the iOS app on their mobile device. 

“Our ability to enable ordering functionality through our mobile iOS app is a game-changer that will improve accessibility for both our customers and business partners alike,” said Justin Dean, Chief Technology Officer at WM Technology, Inc. “We commend companies like Apple that work with industry leaders to find solutions that drive innovation in our space. It’s encouraging to see policies and attitudes toward cannabis shift in a way that promises remarkable growth, and we look forward to introducing an even simpler way to order cannabis from retailers through our platform.” 

Along with ordering on the Weedmaps iOS app, consumers will be able to review their order history and can chat with a customer support representative in real-time. Additional in-app features include: 

   -- Savings: Browse local cannabis deals, sales, and promo codes from area retailers, all gathered for a simple, streamlined experience. 
   -- Helpful product information: Learn more about individual products, find out which activities to pair them with, and browse reviews from fellow cannabis consumers. 
   -- Strains: Explore new and popular cannabis strains based on reported effects and flavors, descriptions, historical data, and peer reviews. 
   -- Stay in the loop: Receive helpful and personalized notifications about price drops on favorite items, new products from brands, new neighborhood retailers, and more. 
   -- Maps: Use interactive maps to locate retailers and delivery services, as well as view live menus, prices, and business hours. 

“Weedmaps has been a pioneer in the cannabis tech space for more than 13 years now, and we’re ready to continue on that path as we watch large corporations such as Apple begin to accept and embrace cannabis legalization,” Dean said. 

Customers 21 and older with an Apple iOS device can download the Weedmaps app from the App Store.
