About Flower Company
We are a wholesale cannabis membership club. Our members pay $119 to get cannabis delivered to their door at half the cost of a dispensary. We're a vertically integrated company delivering next day in Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Francisco, East Bay, Marin, Humboldt, Sacramento, and Vallejo. We’re expanding to cover all major California population centers in 2020.
We're building an end-to-end software system for sourcing, fulfillment, delivery ops, and storefronts in a highly regulated industry. These are big, unique problems to solve in a massive space that is growing with wider legalization. Our current app is an MVP that propelled rapid growth but, as you can see with a quick visit to flowercompany.com, the race is on to stand up new software to support this rocketship.
