Canadian retailer Star Buds Cannabis Co. has partnered with DoorDash Technologies Canada to launch cannabis pickup on the platform's Marketplace app. The service initially rolled out across Star Buds locations in Barrie and Innisfil, Ontario, including online ordering and pickup of a range of cannabis products to consumers outside of metropolitan areas.
"We are excited to partner with DoorDash Canada and enable cannabis pickup on the platform for Star Buds locations. We look forward to growing the partnership in the coming months and bringing online cannabis ordering and pickup in locations where permitted," said Taz Turner, chairman and CEO, CordovaCann Corp, which owns Star Buds, in a news release. "The partnership will grow the business and brand of Star Buds Cannabis Co., exposing more customers to our strong product selection and excellent customer service."
According to the release, Star Buds' philanthropic commitment aligns with DoorDash Canada's values, which prompted the partnership. Star Buds locations across Canada have donated to local charities such as the Christmas Cheer Toy Drive in Barrie and The Main Street Project in Winnipeg.
