Why Should You Trust Nice Guys Delivery?

Marijuana Delivery for adults aged 21 years and older | Marin County, CA

Why should you trust Nice Guys Delivery?

Nice Guys Delivery is one of the few licensed cannabis delivery services operating in San Rafael, California. When our company first moved to the community we served the medical marijuana market, but on April 16th, 2019 we began selling recreational cannabis to adults aged 21 years and older.

Like many of our customers raising kids, we are parents with children growing up in Marin County and we want them to grow up in a safe and healthy community. 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!

Listen to our podcast conversation with San Rafael’s Director of Economic Development, Danielle O’Leary, and hear her talk about the San Rafael Cannabis Program.

Below is a list of our three-step verification process when checking identification as every single order is placed and received by our staff.

Our 3-Step Verification Process:

  1. Once a customer signs up they MUST send us a Government issued ID via email or text message.

  2. We then verify the age in our system.

  3. Our drivers check ID upon delivery.


We created a FREE cannabis 101 educational E-book for you to learn the basics and make more informed purchases in the future. We recommend printing the booklet so you can use the back notes section to begin tracking your cannabis experience.

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?

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!

San Rafael, CA - The City With A Mission

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.

In this episode, we talk to Danielle about San Rafael's Cannabis Program and how it’s been going since it was created. We talk about different ways cannabis is bringing positive change to the community and also a little bit about her background. This is a unique conversation with someone from outside the industry.

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?

Which Cannabis Strain do you prefer?

lifestyleNice Guys DeliveryComment

Do you prefer Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid cannabis flower? Does it matter to you?

And what feeling are you seeking when consuming?

Cannabis is an extremely unique plant. No two people have the same experience, and even if they could biologically-speaking, they still couldn’t, because each cannabis strain and each harvest is different. Cannabis is alive and constantly evolving.

At Nice Guys, we recommend tracking your experience. It means you should take ownership of your cannabis use by becoming interested in what you’re consuming and tracking how it makes you feel (actually write it down).

Become curious. Ask your licensed cannabis provider questions and reach out on social media to start a dialog with others. Prohibition will end when more of us begin to open up and talk about all the ways cannabis helps our lives.

Defining the Black Market in California's Cannabis Industry

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.
