Cannabis connoisseurs rejoice, there’s a new weed delivery option exclusively for you. Based in San Francisco, Marvina is a new marijuana delivery service in the city, but with a twist: it strives to deliver a mix of new, top-quality strains, hand-selected for customers, every month.
“Some people like interacting with the budtender,” Marvina co-founder Dane Pieri . told me SF Evergreen. Pieri and co-founder Derek Dahmer thought some people would appreciate a different way of choosing strains.
“Some people prefer to make decisions on their own time,” Pieri said. They want to remove the stress of choice from a pharmacy.
So Marvina is a way to educate budding cannabis connoisseurs about the best strains out there.
It’s like a wine-of-the-month club, except you trade the grapes for grapes (that’s purple weed for you, mate). Customers can select 7, 14 or 28 grams of cannabis for Marvina to be delivered on a set schedule, for $95, $175 or $325 per month, respectively. Users who sign up have to scan their medical marijuana credentials or take a snapshot and have to present their identification on delivery (because you know, laws and all).
When signing up, customers can choose between Sativa and Indica, a pharmacy of choice, and the amount of cannabis they want delivered. After that, the mix of strains you get is all up to that pharmacy.
And some pharmacies use organic methods and grow in natural soil instead of hydroponics.
“A lot of people prefer soil,” Pieri said. “It has a better taste and cleaner burn.”
But that’s the appeal: experts pick the best strains they can find so you don’t have to.
It sure is handy. The company’s delivery map highlights all of San Francisco so you can get deliveries from SoMa until sunset.
And Marvina adds a new twist to cannabis delivery in yet another way, as it offers premium packaging.
“We think packaging in the cannabis industry in general still has a long way to go,” said Pieri. “You spend a few hundred dollars and you get a ziplock bag in a paper bag, stapled shut. We wanted to normalize cannabis and make it an everyday thing.”
So order some Marvina and educate yourself about cannabis strains in class.
