BEND, OR – Dutchie, the world’s largest and fastest-growing e-commerce solution for cannabis dispensaries, announced a new partnership with WholesomeCo Cannabis, Utah’s first completely online medical cannabis pharmacy located just off Interstate 15 in West Bountiful, Utah, to offer online ordering and contactless drive-thru pickup options for consumers. The partnership drives WholesomeCo’s mission to bring a completely digital and online “plant-to-patient” experience to the patients of Utah, as well as Dutchie’s mission to provide the best overall customer experience for cannabis retailers and customers worldwide.
“Across every industry, including cannabis, it’s become increasingly clear that the best way to serve customers is through online ordering and digital, contactless payment options,” says Dutchie Co-founder and CEO Ross Lipson. “At Dutchie, we are committed to providing the highest level of customer service to both cannabis consumers and dispensaries. Our partnership with WholesomeCo, which has been a leader in the cannabis space in Utah since inception, aligns perfectly with our mission to shape the cannabis customer experience and will help increase access to medical cannabis for patients.”
Together, the partnership between Dutchie and WholesomeCo brings the patients of Utah the same convenience and access they are used to in this day and age, through a completely online and contactless drive-thru pickup experience. Once approved by a Qualified Medical Provider and after registering and approval on Wholesome.Co, patients have immediate access to online ordering through the Wholesome.Co’s mobile-friendly website, powered by Dutchie.
“Our main objective at WholesomeCo has always been to replicate the way consumers shop and buy products in all other aspects of their lives for our medical cannabis patients,” said Richard Maloney, General Manager of Retail at WholesomeCo. “We are excited to be partnering with Dutchie as the leader in the cannabis e-commerce space, which we believe will provide us with the technology resources to take our mission to the next level and continue to set the bar with the patient experience in Utah.”
