Colorado releases first permit for adult-use cannabis delivery

Colorado releases first permit for adult-use cannabis delivery

Bethan Rose Jenkins, Cannabis News Writer/Editorial

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to linger, more Coloradan cannabis consumers are seeking out delivery services. Thankfully for residents in the City of Aurora, the state has awarded its first ever adult-use cannabis delivery permit to a local dispensary.

Tim Cullen is the owner of Colorado Harvest Company, which successfully gained the permit. His dispensary chain’s Aurora location can be found on 11002 East Yale Avenue. 

Although the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division opened the door for recreational delivery applications on January 1, High Country Supply LLC which operates as Aurora dispensary Colorado Harvest Company remains to be the only permit holder at the current time.

Colorado’s cannabis delivery drivers will start serving Aurora by March 1

Residents living in Colorado’s third-largest city have been informed that they can get green, sticky nugs and cannabis-related products delivered to their door starting from March 1. 

In mid-January, the City of Aurora approved a cannabis delivery ordinance in a final 7-3 vote. As per details of the ordinance, residents will be allowed to have cannabis delivered to their homes by licensed dispensaries between the hours of 8 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Colorado Harvest Company’s Aurora store presents customers with a vast assortment of cannabis products and merchandise. Some examples of the dispensary’s product categories include flower, pre-rolls, vaporizers, edibles, tinctures, topicals and accessories. 

Potent concentrates such as live resin, rosin and oil-filled syringes tend to pack the meanest punch of cannabinoids, with the THC content of these products soaring to highs of almost 80 percent.

Colorado cannabis regulators started issuing medical cannabis delivery permits last year

In 2020, a new state law meant that medical cannabis delivery licenses could be distributed among lucky applicants. As of February 1, 2021, six medical cannabis transport licenses have been awarded. However, it should be noted that local jurisdictions across the state must first approve cannabis deliveries within their borders.

Fortunately for cannabis consumers who require delivery services in Colorado, more jurisdictions are getting on board, including the City of Aurora. Not only do cannabis delivery services provide community members with discretion but also, they ensure overall safety for buyers. 

Unlike black market products that can pass from a dealer’s hands to a buyer without being traced, cannabis delivery in Colorado is completely tracked; the law requires that software applications are utilized as a means of monitoring delivery drivers. 

Since a cannabis delivery driver’s every move is recorded, community members can purchase their weed in the confidence that they aren’t getting themselves into a dangerous situation.
