This episode of Soul D’licious Infused with Benjamin Bey & Stephanie Magurno aired on October 24th, 2020 on KUNV 91.5.
Benjamin Bey of Soul D’licious Seasonings and co-host Stephanie Magurno of THC Production, LLC interview Jamal Barghouti and Haleigh Hoff of Blackbird cannabis delivery service. The two provide a primer for how cannabis delivery works for consumers. Additionally, they discuss how COVID disrupted the way consumers and patients purchase marijuana, and what resulting purchasing patterns are here to stay. Finally, they discuss how they protect drivers carrying around highly valuable products.
Blackbird and the COVID Pandemic
During the start of the COVID pandemic, people began to quarantine in their homes a lot more. Consequently, this changed the way Blackbird did a lot of their business. Now, they had to deliver to more homes than dispensaries. Additionally, this caused an increase in hiring drivers to cover all the new orders and meet customer demand. In fact, this caused a 600% increase in deliveries.
Since the lifting of certain restrictions, people are returning to dispensaries. However, Jamal Barghouti notes that this has made a huge impact on the way people get their cannabis products. Now, the concept of cannabis delivery has completely changed in the minds of consumers. There are no longer lines around the corner with customers trying to get product at dispensaries. Now, they can remain in the comfort of their own homes. Ultimately, it showed what the industry is capable of and has answered some old questions of what the capacity for the industry truly is.
Blackbird Cannabis Delivery Service
Blackbird is the largest cannabis delivery company in the state of Nevada. They are a logistics and technology company that strives to provide its customers with software and distribution services for both dispensaries and direct users.
