Buddy, New Smartphone App Helps You Shop Your Favourite Dispensaries

Buddy, a new cannabis locator and online ordering app based in Canada, is set to launch mid-March 2019. Designed with the cannabis consumer in mind, the developers of the app performed extensive research which showed that many Canadians want the convenience of shopping Canada’s best dispensaries from the comfort of their own homes. Further to that, they noted that 90% of the cannabis consumers surveyed would like to have the option to reserve their favourite products for in-store pickup using a mobile app.

“Buddy lets you browse current menus from government licensed dispensaries in your area. You can reserve products and build your order online then skip the line-ups when you pick up your order at the store,” said lead application developer David Ramsaran. “With Buddy, you can browse more strains than you ever knew existed. You can research them before you buy, then rate, share, and review your new favourite strains with your friends afterwards.”

A crucial ingredient to Buddy’s success will be maintaining close relationships with the legal dispensaries across Canada. The developer of the app, Buddy-Tech, worked closely with the federal and provincial governemnts to make sure the application was 100% compliant with the new cannabis regulations set in place last Oct 17, 2018. “Buddy is currently the only legal smartphone app available to consumers looking to shop for cannabis online” claims Ramsaran. “We are set to launch in Alberta in mid-March 2019, with the rest of Canada coming online over the next few months.”
