California: Exhale Med Center Offers Highest Tested and Rare CBD Strain

Pioneers in cultivating CBD (cannabidiol) genetics for over two years, Exhale Med Center, the #1 rated medical marijuana shop on Yelp, carries one of the rarest strains of CBD-rich cannabis found today, called “CBD Web.” This strain contains 16 percent CBD to 2 percent THC, a ratio high enough to comfort the parents of a sick child suffering from epilepsy, giving them the confidence that the child will not feel high while reaping the medicinal rewards.

CBD Web is a constant at Exhale Med Center, in addition to three variations of CBD-rich strain genetics, CBD edibles, tinctures, creams, Rick Simpson Oils, and many different forms of concentrates. With last year's release of Dr. Sanjay Gupta's CNN Special Weed, a demand has been created for highly concentrated CBD products that will help patients’ symptoms without giving them a psychoactive high.

Known as one of the elite shops in Los Angeles, Exhale Med Center is a Prop D compliant, “Pre-ICO,” medical marijuana pioneer, offering one of the best selections of strain variations in town, in every price range. From high-end indoor sativas and hybrids from the Bay Area and top shelf indicas from SoCal to the outdoor and green house varieties from Northern California’s ‘Emerald Triangle’, Exhale says its range of more than 50 strains offers a quality remedy for most ailments. This December will mark their first year anniversary in their new zone-compliant location at 980 North La Cienega Blvd, Suite 102, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

California: L.A. Alcohol Delivery Service Nestdrop Expanding Into Medical Marijuana

Popular alcohol delivery app expands market reach to bring medicinal marijuana to Los Angeles patients in need

Nestdrop, a popular Los Angeles alcohol delivery service, is introducing what it calls "the country's first in-App, on-demand medical marijuana delivery service for both iOS and Android."

Available today for alcohol deliveries for L.A. area residents, Nestdrop medical marijuana delivery service will launch in the next few weeks in the same app. Medical marijuana patients will be required to upload a photo of their doctor's recommendation to Nestdrop's securely encrypted vault to receive approval before ordering.

Unlike other online medical marijuana delivery services, Nestdrop says it is the first to provide an entirely in-app marketplace experience.

"After our initial success with alcohol deliveries, we decided to expand when we saw how this platform could be used to bring difficult-to-obtain products to people who really need them," said Nestdrop co-founder Michael Pycher. "We began talking to patients and found a genuine need out there for improved access to this medicine."

As part of the simple registration process, medical marijuana patients must upload a photo of a doctor's recommendation and Medical Marijuana Identification Card to order from Nestdrop's medical marijuana section. Once manually approved by a local dispensary, which can take as little as five minutes, patients will have full access to the same medicine that they are used to getting in-person, for the same donation amount.
