Where’s Weed, which calls itself "the largest online source for finding legal marijuana businesses," on Friday announced the release of a new online pre-ordering platform through the website and newly launched mobile applications.

With the new platform, customers can quickly and safely pre-order legal marijuana with trusted businesses in their community, according to Where's Weed. Within 60 seconds, customers can select products, upload medical verification and schedule a pick-up at their convenience.

On a small scale beta test across three states, Where’s Weed recorded hundreds of pre-orders in the first 30 days, amounting to tens of thousands of dollars in business to consumer transactions.

A large portion of the pre-orders were gained through Where’s Weed’s recently released app for iPhone, Android, and Windows Devices. Due to Apple’s restrictive policies that many other cannabis businesses have had issues with, the pre-ordering feature is only available on Android and Windows devices.

“Business owners are having huge success with this tool,” said David Lindauer, CEO of Where’s Weed. “Not only are we bringing a whole new set of patients to businesses, we’re actually able to save them quite a bit of time.”

“Patients are loving it too. They get real time updates through email or the app about their order and when it will be ready, and we’ve seen a lot of them scheduling pick-ups and deliveries in advance. It’s all about convenience.”
