Online Ordering for Marijuana Here to Stay in Colorado?

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic when social distancing has become the new normal for most of the country, online marijuana ordering in Colorado has risen as a fairly standard means of obtaining both medicinal and recreational marijuana in recent months.

Though this trend may have been spurred on by the pandemic and the precautionary measures that sprung up around it as a result, some industry insiders are beginning to posit that online ordering may just be here to stay long after the virus has run its course.

How Does It Work?

In 2020, practically everyone is familiar with online shopping, and the beauty of ordering marijuana online is that it functions in pretty much the same way as ordering virtually anything else online. This makes it an easy transition, even for those who are used to physically visiting a dispensary to procure their products.

Online ordering requires that customers place their orders online in advance, specifying details like pick-up time in addition to which items they would like included in their order. From there, consumers have the option to pay ahead of time with a card, which will serve to expedite the process when they pick up their order.

For those consumers who only have cash, some dispensaries allow cash payments (and even discounts) upon pick up, so there’s no need to worry. Choosing a pick-up time that’s plenty in advance ensures there will be no excessive wait times or lines, so customers can enjoy a quick and seamless experience when it comes time to retrieve their orders.

What It Means for the Future

Just as many businesses are considering a more remote-focused work environment, dispensaries are excited about the prospect of continuing with the online ordering trend long after it’s necessary due to social distancing. This is due to the fact that it simplifies the process for dispensary workers and allows businesses to make more sales while minimizing crowds.

All of this translates to a strong chance that online ordering and curbside service will continue long after the restrictions set in place as a result of COVID-19 have been lifted.
