In the years since we were founded, Nice Guys Delivery has been driven by a singular desire: to help the people of Marin County get what they want, and what they need, in cannabis. It’s a labor of passion for us, both in serving a community that we deeply love and owe so much to, and in raising awareness of the countless benefits of one of the world’s oldest and most therapeutic herbs. And that’s why we couldn’t be prouder or more thankful that Nice Guys Delivery is a Marin local cannabis business, and we’re so excited for what’s ahead.

We’re a locally-owned business serving the entire county, from the hills of Sausalito, to the streets of Novato, to the shores of Stinson Beach, and everywhere in between. Our staff of friendly and experienced drivers and dispatchers—many of them born and raised right here in the county—are available seven days a week to bring you a wide array of some of the finest flowers, concentrates, edibles, topicals, and assorted cannabis goods on the market today. 

Needless to say, recreational and medicinal cannabis is a booming industry in California, which on its own is a world-class economic power — it would, in fact, be the world’s fifth-largest economy if it were its own country. And, as with any exploding new sector of the economy, there’s a tremendous amount of money flooding into the market, with new companies and exciting new products popping up left and right.

Some companies are active all throughout the state, serving incredibly wide areas with no particular or specific rooting in any one city, town, or county. Some are backed by enormous amounts of venture capital funding. Some of them use independent contractors or third-party drivers to avoid employing their own team, farming the work out to people they don’t know as well, in communities with which they have no familiarity. Long-term, these kinds of practices work to suffocate small businesses, to the benefit of large corporations looking to dominate local markets.

At Nice Guys Delivery, we take a different approach. We were founded right here in Marin, a family business built from the ground up through the diligence of our team, and we employ a reliable, friendly, knowledgeable, and discreet stable of both full and part-time employees. And we love every moment of providing the people of Marin with quick, efficient, responsive, and compassionate cannabis delivery. 

You can order online from the privacy and convenience of your laptop or mobile device, or you can call up the office with any questions or suggestions or requests. The most important thing to us is that the people of Marin have access to the finest cannabis products, both in the times you want them, and the times you need them.

In short, whether you’re a longtime cannabis user, or whether you’re coming to it later in life and want some advice on how to make it work for you, we’re ready and waiting to help with any questions, suggestions, or requests you have. And between our 25 percent discount for new members, our loyalty rewards program, and our 10 percent discount for veterans and customers age 65 and up, there’s never been a better time to become part of our extended family. So thanks, Marin, for a wonderful couple of years. Here’s to many more!

Heather talks about her experience working in the legal cannabis industry. Learn how Bloom Farms is giving her a chance to live in her passions

Episode 007: Interview with Heather | Account Manager for Bloom Farms

“Legal cannabis is currently the greatest job-creation machine in America. The cannabis workforce increased 21% in 2017. It gained another 44% in 2018. We expect at least another 20% growth in jobs in 2019. That would represent a 110% growth in cannabis jobs in just three years.” - Leafly

 

Welcome to episode 007 of the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast, where it is our goal to educate consumers while removing the fear out of marijuana. The show is run by Nice Guys Delivery employees who interview other industry peers to lift the veil of the legal California cannabis industry.


In this episode, we talk to Heather who is an Account Manager for Bloom Farms. She is one of the first vendors Nice Guys Delivery ever worked with when we first opened our doors in 2016, and she is a great example of a professional in the space. We talk about how cannabis is changing the landscape and giving a lot of people opportunities and jobs. The industry offers upward mobility for anyone willing to work.

"You have to be passionate about cannabis to really do this." - Heather

Bloom Farms is a staple in the California cannabis market. One of the reasons we like them so much is because of their desire to be nice and give back to the communities they're serving. They formed a 1-for-1 program that has donated over 1.6 million meals. They partner with 9 local food banks across the state to make this happen. Last year Nice Guys joined Bloom Farms on World Food Day to donate food at the SF Marin Food bank.

Why should you trust Nice Guys Delivery?

We have policies in place to protect children and our community alike. It’s our desire to be apart of the solution. We work closely with the B.C.C and City of San Rafael to ensure we are running our business according to regulations. It’s important to us that our community feels safe!

One Challenge Cannabis Delivery Driver’s Face

lifestyleNice Guys DeliveryComment

Have you ever wondered what sort of problems cannabis delivery drivers face while doing their jobs?

nice guys cannabis delivery
Tags: Marin County | Marijuana Delivery | Nice Guys Delivery 

As a delivery driver we are given tools to communicate with the customer. We use an app that includes an invoice, navigation, and order notes. We see the order notes as additional instructions from the customer - for example, if someone has a gate code where they live they can use the order notes to give instructions to the drivers. It’s very useful. Order notes must be entered during checkout.

Then after the customer places an order and it has been processed into the Nice Guys Delivery system they receive a text message with an ETA and access to real-time tracking that enables them to see where their delivery is at all times. In addition to tracking the app sends customers a text message with delivery updates, including a notification when the driver is 2 minutes away from arriving.

I’ve noticed sending a text makes the transaction a lot easier for both me and the customer. - A Nice Guys Delivery Driver

One of the biggest challenges our drivers face is delivering to local businesses and not being able to reach the customer to drop the package off. When customers communicate the best way to make the delivery it helps our drivers ensure the products arrive in a timely manner. This is where the order notes at the end of checkout become really helpful. Otherwise, if we’re unable to contact anyone without prior approval to enter the business, we will likely return to our office with the products and try to deliver again later after we contact someone with more direct instructions.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a text book with instructions of “Best Practices On How To Deliver Cannabis.” It would be nice but it doesn’t exist. We’re the ones writing the manual as we continue building the infrastructure of the industry. We need your help to make this the best experience it can be. We appreciate feedback because it’s a big part of how we’re moving the industry forward. Thank you for communicating with us. It helps us better serve you!

Danielle O'Leary is a leading member of the team creating the legal cannabis program in San Rafael, California. She is the Director of Economic Development and Innovation and because of her efforts, Nice Guys Delivery and others are able to legally sell cannabis in San Rafael and Marin County.

Thank you for listening to the Not Your Average Nice Guys Podcast. 

Please leave a comment and let us know what other type of cannabis content you’d like to hear!

We appreciate you! 

Our talk is based around these questions:

  1. You are helping write and guide policies for a community trying to embrace cannabis. How did you come to this position and what is the career history that led you here?

  2. The majority of Marin voted for legalization and each community across California is embracing prop 64 in their own way. Marin has eased its way forward regarding policies. What's the next progression? 

  3. Have licensed cannabis businesses been good operators in San Rafael? How are we doing?

  4. What is the biggest concern from the city's point of view? What are some mistakes you've seen other communities make?

  5. Where is the tax revenue being applied?

  6. Aside from Tax revenue, what do you and the city hope to see from us as licensed businesses? 

  7. Have you seen an increase in crime since San Rafael began allowing legal cannabis sales? 

Additional Notes and Resources:

"On March 4, 2019, San Rafael City Council approved amending our current medical cannabis policy to allow existing licensees the ability to serve the adult-use market. This recent action does not permit new retail storefront licensing activity.  The list of approved license types and allotments are shown below:"

They are North Lake Tahoe’s 1st and ONLY legal cannabis delivery service operating out of Truckee, California!

Winter Greens Delivery (@wintergreensdeliver) is a cannabis delivery service dedicated to educating and guiding its customers about the validated benefits of cannabis for health. They make pain relief accessible, affordable and discreet while striving to make each member experience as unique as they are. 

Dan, Colleen, and Ashley sit down for a conversation in Sacramento after a recent Flow kana industry party where they got to meet some of the farmers, a glass blower, and other industry members. They couldn't find anywhere quiet to talk so they have this conversation from the inside of a car. 

The discussion is centered around Ashley as she talks about Winter Greens and the experience she's had since they first opened on Jan. 28th, 2019. They are North Lake Tahoe and Truckee's 1st and ONLY licensed cannabis delivery service. When asked about some of the challenges she mentions the weather conditions as the drivers attempt to deliver weed in the middle of a snowstorm. I can imagine it being extra tricky trying to deliver cannabis in the middle of a blizzard - props to the winter greens delivery drivers. Tips are always appreciated.

Why Shop For Cannabis Online??📍Marin County Cannabis Delivery

educationNice Guys DeliveryComment
whyshoponline-1.png

Pros:

Have you ever considered purchasing cannabis online rather than making the trip to a dispensary? Below is a list of pros and cons to help guide your decision the next time you’re looking to purchase products. Before we get started, I recommend getting to know the state and local laws regarding cannabis near you. In California, delivery services can deliver anywhere in the state with out abiding by local laws.

 

Convenience:

Time is one resource most of us seem to never have enough of, by purchasing products online you gain back some of those precious moments. Nice Guys Delivery offers speedy delivery within 45-60 minutes from the time you place an order, but if you need to schedule the delivery for a later time in the day or week that’s also an option. Buying online saves you time traveling to the store, standing in busy lines, and offers a painless way to refill products when they’re running low.  

[We now offer same day deliveries into select Napa & Sonoma County locations when you order by 2 PM]

 

Accessibility:

Ordering online offers individuals with illness an easier way to obtain medicine. It gives consumers more access to products than if there only option is to purchase from the storefront down the road. You have the ability to shop around until you find exactly what you’re looking for.

 

Predictable care in a relaxed setting:

It’s hard to find a more comfortable setting than your own home. Nice Guys Delivery has a dedicated call center with specialized customer service people ready to assist you with whatever you need. When you visit a storefront you often interact with a different budtender each time, making it difficult to build rapport. You don’t have that problem when ordering online because there is a specific team dedicated to working with you. In the digital age, ordering online actually allows for a more personalized experience.

 

Education:

Looking at products online allows you to research information while you are shopping. Let’s say that you come across a new strain you’ve never heard of. You can search the internet using site’s like Leafly to help gain more information before deciding to purchase something. It’s also important to know who you’re buying from. Ordering online gives you the opportunity to read about the company before doing business.

 

Sales and Promotions:

Shopping online allows you to locate the specific products you are looking for and often times gives you access to online deals and promotions through email newsletters and campaigns. By engaging on social media you’re able to connect with brands on a more intimate level.

 

Cons:

One perceived downfall when ordering online is not being able to see the products in person. Since all tinctures, topicals, and edibles must remain in their packaging anyway, the buying experience is basically the same online as it is in-store. This problem is also diminished over time as you build a relationship with the delivery service and are able to trust their word and reputation. You can read reviews and see what other people think about the products and service you’re looking for, before making any decisions.

Defining the Black Market in California's Cannabis Industry

educationSquare Studio DevComment

Defining the Black Market in California’s Cannabis Industry

Did you realize you were contributing to its growth when you purchase products from unlicensed cannabis businesses - including the one’s operating under “Prop 215.”

Saying Bye to Prop 215 👋🏻

In California, cannabis legalization began back in 1996 with the passing of Proposition 215. “Prop 215 made exempt patients and defined caregivers who possess or cultivate marijuana for medical treatment recommended by a physician from criminal laws which otherwise prohibit possession or cultivation of marijuana.” It allowed owners of medical recommendations to purchase cannabis from retailers operating under the Prop 215 classification.

Fast forward to today, where Prop 64 is the new regulatory standard and businesses operating under Prop 215 are considered “black market” operations. “Black market cannabis is primarily untested and leaves an open door for some of the industry’s worst practices.” Proposition 64 passed in 2016 and took effect in 2018. Prop 64 legalized Adult-Use sales and consumption but also includes regulations for the Medical industry, while doing away with Prop 215. Because many black-market cannabis businesses are hosted on platforms such as WeedMaps it’s common for consumers to assume they’re purchasing safe, quality products from any business claiming to offer cannabis products. It simply isn’t the case.

Given the new regulations it’s tempting to purchase cannabis from the Black market. The new standards for licensed business and new taxes have increased the prices for licensed businesses, making products more expensive for consumers. It's tough to witness small farmers, small manufacturers, and even delivery/retail businesses not able to survive under the new standards. However, for the health of the plant, people and the industry, purchasing from licensed retailers ensures a future for this clean source of medicine.

In California, if you purchase a product from a dispensary or delivery service the item will have gone through multiple safety checks to ensure what you’re buying is pure cannabis with zero contaminants. Licensed cannabis businesses have a certain standard to uphold and will be fully transparent and able to provide reports including detailed information regarding cannabinoid potencies and terpene analysis, plus pesticide, fungicide and PGR residue results on request.”

Below is a list of negative effects caused when purchasing cannabis from unlicensed businesses:

●      It’s bad for your health. Untested cannabis commonly fosters mold, pesticides, and other harmful chemicals. “One common pesticide among illegal growers contains the chemical carbofuran, which has been banned in the U.S., Canada and the EU for years. It takes only a sixteenth of a teaspoon of carbofuran to kill a human being [1].”

●      It’s harmful to the environment. “Pesticide residue can linger in soil, in extraction equipment and in five generations of plants. A research scientist who has been studying the environmental effects of illegal marijuana grows in Northern California has found chemical runoff as much as four years after a cultivation site was abandoned – killing protected species, seeping into other agricultural areas and making its way up the food chain.”

●      It hinders the growth of the industry. When licensed businesses lose money to the illegal market society takes the hit. Operating in the legal market means individuals may receive state approved jobs, giving them access to benefits and other opportunities otherwise unavailable to them. As the black market thrives, it strangles the ability of license holders to hire more employees.

You think you’re getting a better deal by purchasing “cheaper” cannabis from unlicensed businesses, but it actually does more harm than good – to you and society. At times it doesn’t feel like the actions we take in our personal lives make a difference, but this isn’t one of those times. The cannabis industry is the perfect example of an industry where the people hold the power. It shows in the way states continue legalizing cannabis in the face of Federal prohibition. People are showing up to the polls and making change happen. You as the voter, individually and collectively, are forcing politicians to listen.

As the legal cannabis industry grows it needs more individuals to step up and begin buying into it. Nice Guys Delivery is a health-conscious, best-in class delivery service who supports the #cleancannabis movement. We are a licensed business, who has the individual at the heart of our mission. We are unlike the black-market who cares about profits over people, it’s our goal to educate and guide our members about the validated benefits of cannabis for health. We make pain relief accessible, affordable and discreet while striving to offer each member an experience as unique as they are. 

That’s the difference between us and the black market. We are here for you with clean cannabis options! The next time you purchase products we recommend asking your budtender or delivery drivers if they are licensed and if not, we suggest buying your products from someone who is. Click here to search for California licensed cannabis businesses and learn for yourself. Put your health first!
