LeafLink Inc., Denver, now handles more than 100 official Colorado cannabis retailers with an online ordering platform for marijuana-infused products from Keef Cola, Dixie Elixirs, Foria and ZOOTS, among others.
The platform, which launched this spring, is designed exclusively for the cannabis industry, and each retailer placing orders must have a valid license from the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED).
Prior to using LeafLink, retailers traditionally ordered products from their vendors by texting, emailing or calling their sales representatives. With some marijuana stores selling products from more than 20 vendors, their ordering often consumed a day or more each week.
Now, on LeafLink, Colorado retailers can order from multiple brands for all of their licenses, both recreational and medical, in one online cart.
“LeafLink’s all-in-one platform has simplified placing orders in a time-efficient manner,” said Josh Best, who places orders for Medicine Man. “It has eliminated the hassle of numerous phone calls, texts, and emails with our vendors regarding current inventory and what’s available for purchase.
“The reorder feature has been an added bonus and has saved me a lot of time.”
Currently, the platform also offers products from Stix, Evolab, Infinite Infusions and hemp-based Nature’s Love. Cannapunch, Wana Brands, Ebbu, Strainz, Mahatma Concentrates, Good Meds, Herbanoids, and THC-free CBD Luxe will be rolled out on the platform over the next month.
Brands such as Strainz, a marijuana concentrates producer in Nevada, and ZOOTS, which currently sells six of the top ten edibles in Washington, are looking to break into the Colorado market. They seek access to potential retailers, who can order samples on LeafLink before purchasing the products for their stores.
LeafLink plans to expand to other states where marijuana is legal later this year.
