It’s safe to say that the cannabis industry is growing up. Less than a decade ago, the majority of cannabis users were still purchasing from black market dealers. Fast forward to today, where recreational cannabis is legal in eight U.S. states and medical cannabis is legal in most of the country. People are no longer buying cannabis in parking lots, they’re buying it in dispensaries and they’re buying it online.
For cannabis companies hoping to make their mark in the industry, setting up their own e-commerce shop is a great way to gain visibility and get more customers. But as they say, the devil is in the details, and for those that lack the acumen for web design, there is a bevy of B2B cannabis companies that can help you set up your e-commerce shop.
Here are the Top 4 Cannabis Companies that offer e-commerce solutions:
Baker is an extremely popular e-commerce platform. Like many B2B e-commerce platforms, Baker can help dispensaries monetize their website through the addition of a digital menu, online checkout, and customer loyalty programs. But what makes Baker shiner brighter than most is its ability to integrate and communicate with other digital cannabis platforms, which is made possible through its recently launched API. Baker currently integrates with over 20 digital cannabis platforms, including FlowHub and Leafly.
WeedHero is a small company based in Portland, Oregon, that aims to smooth out interactions between medical cannabis dispensary owners and their consumers. Its full-featured marketing software is designed to make it easy for dispensaries to turn their websites into an e-commerce marketplace. With WeedHero, customers can browse search-engine friendly menus, choose between pickup or delivery, and even categorize their favorite product. WeedHero also offers free installation and a risk-free 15 day trial.
- Green Marimba
Green Marimba offers a wide array of web-based services, including e-commerce services. Like Baker, Green Marimba offers multiple integrations with various web platforms. Unlike Baker, however, most are not directly related to the cannabis industry, with the exception of metrc. Green Marimba also offers services such as cannabis legal compliance, supported by a team of Colorado-based attorneys, and seed-to-sale inventory tracking.
- 365 Cannabis
365 Cannabis offers a suite of digital tools for medical cannabis dispensary owners, from built-in POS software to e-commerce solutions. With 365 Cannabis, dispensary owners can set up their own e-commerce shop and customers can order cannabis online for pick up or delivery. From the dispensary side of the equation, employees can track which patients use their dispensary as well as the kinds of products they purchase. 365 Cannabis also features both B2B and B2C configurations, so that individuals can sell to both businesses and patients.
