As of April 18, 2023, customers in parts of Metro Vancouver and Victoria can use the Uber Eats app to order cannabis for delivery from local retailers. In partnership with Leafly and local vendors, Uber Eats Canada is expanding its service to include the delivery of recreational cannabis to customers in British Columbia.

Introduction

With cannabis delivery already available in Metro Vancouver through dispensaries’ home delivery services and the provincially run BC Cannabis Stores website, Uber Eats has partnered with local retailers to offer customers a trusted, easy-to-use platform to order cannabis. With cannabis delivery already available in Toronto, this expansion of Uber Eats’ delivery services is a natural extension of its mission to “help people go anywhere and get anything.”

How to Order Cannabis on Uber Eats

To order cannabis on Uber Eats, customers in Vancouver, North Vancouver, New Westminster, and Victoria must first open the app and select the “recreational cannabis” category. Customers must then verify their age on the virtual storefront and again in person when the cannabis is delivered. Cannabis can only be ordered within the delivery range of partner stores, and the estimated time of delivery is provided upon acceptance of the order.

Delivery Service

Unlike food orders on Uber Eats, only employees of the participating cannabis retailers will deliver the weed, not third-party individuals. At the door, they’ll check for sobriety and ID. Vancouver-based ARCannabis has partnered with Uber Eats to get its products to customers more quickly, aiming for same-day delivery with the possibility of reducing delivery time to just a few hours in the future.

Why Uber Eats Is a Game Changer

Cannabis delivery services have been available in British Columbia for some time now, but Uber Eats’ entry into the market is a game changer. With its reputation as a trusted platform, widely used app, and easy-to-use interface, customers can now order cannabis alongside their favorite food from the same app. This ease of use makes it an attractive option for consumers looking to purchase cannabis, particularly those who are already familiar with the Uber Eats platform.

Regulatory Framework in Canada

Canada is the only market worldwide where Uber delivers cannabis, and the regulatory framework in Canada is what makes this possible. Uber Eats Canada’s general manager of new verticals, Klaas Knieriem, sees cannabis as a natural extension of the company’s mission to “help people go anywhere and get anything.”

Participating Cannabis Retailers

Customers can order cannabis from several participating retailers on the Uber Eats app. These include Sea to Sky, Original Farm Cannabis, Leisure for Cannabis, ARCannabis, 4Twenty Cannabis, North Shore Cannabis, and Queensborough Cannabis.

Conclusion

The partnership between Uber Eats, Leafly, and local vendors marks the expansion of Uber Eats’ delivery services to include the delivery of recreational cannabis to customers in British Columbia. Customers in Vancouver, North Vancouver, New Westminster, and Victoria can now use the Uber Eats app to order cannabis for delivery from participating local retailers. With its easy-to-use interface, trusted platform, and widely used app, Uber Eats’ entry into the cannabis delivery market is a game changer for customers looking to purchase cannabis.
