EVART, MI -- Lume Cannabis Co. in Evart has launched what it’s calling the first recreational marijuana home-delivery service in Michigan.
“Lume this week launched Michigan’s first delivery service for adult-use customers in northern Michigan,” says a press release the company issued Wednesday afternoon. “Delivery service will increase access to Lume’s high-quality cannabis products and improve convenience for adult-use customers in 11 Zip codes across Osceola, Wexford and Mecosta counties.”
While there are a dozen other recreational marijuana retailers qualified for home-delivery service, it’s unclear if any have begun offering it.
MLive contacted Ann Arbor Healing and Exclusive Brands, both in Ann Arbor, Battle Creek Provisioning, two locations, Dank on Arrival in Bay City and Stateline Remedii in Morenci. All are retail locations qualified for home delivery but are not yet making deliveries.
“We are excited to announce Lume Delivery, our adult-use delivery service, is up and running at in Evart,” Lume Cannabis Co. COO and President Doug Hellyar said. “Our top priority is providing an unmatched experience that makes it easy for our customers to access the broad variety of high-quality cannabis products we offer.
"Allowing customers to order online and have their order delivered to their doorstep will be a convenient option for customers and we expect it to be in great demand.”
While the Marijuana Regulatory Agency couldn’t confirm if Lume is the first in the state to make home-delivery sales, spokesman David Harns said no delivery revenue had been recorded in the state monitoring system as of Feb. 3. He hasn’t received this week’s revenue report.
“We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to iron out the details of our new delivery service to ensure it is efficient and improves customer satisfaction," Hellyar said. "We look forward to soon offering delivery at our store in Honor and across the state.”
The company is accepting deliver orders for both medical and recreational marijuana through its website. Purchasers must upload a photo ID and deliveries must be to the same address as listed on the identification, by state law.
Among the state rules for recreational marijuana delivery are:
The purchaser must provide valid ID that lists the address of the delivery
Purchase limits are 2.5 ounces or 15 grams of concentrate
Drivers may only work of one retail business
Drivers are limited to 10 deliveries per trip
