How Eaze is changing the customer experience for a newly legal product: cannabis

 

Eaze totally changed shopping for cannabis in California with its on-demand delivery app. But creating a leading customer experience for something that used to be illegal presents a whole set of challenges most companies will never have to deal with. Starting from the prohibition era and continuing through the medical marijuana years up to the current legalization of adult-use cannabis in California, we see how the retail and delivery industry has changed as the laws have changed. Sheena Shiravi, Director of Consumer Communications, and Mick Frederick, VP of the Customer Experience, both at Eaze, discuss how they are helping customers overcome the stigma of cannabis. Ricardo Baca, CEO of Grasslands and former marijuana editor at the Denver Post, provides an expert historical perspective of the industry. Adweek's Ann-Marie Alcantara explains how Eaze is taking cannabis digital. And Sky Siegel, General Manager for SPC Fleet, describes Eaze's impact on cannabis delivery.
