San Francisco’s hottest new tech sector keeps getting hotter this week with the launch ofGreenRush — the latest app to fulfill medical cannabis patients’ needs.
Similar to the Y combinator graduate, Meadow, GreenRush aims to give patients the buds they want from the dispensary of their choice, a la the GrubHub food delivery model. Other apps like Marvina and Nestdrop pick the cannabis source for you. The San Mateo-based company’s founder and CEO Paul Warshaw states:
“The Cannabis industry lacks the comprehensive comparison tools needed for patients. We designed our platform with convenience in mind, with services that increase patient satisfaction and showcase innovative dispensaries.”
“Today, we live in a world where everything can be delivered directly to you at a moment’s notice–medicinal Cannabis should be no different. GreenRush targets the needs of both patients and dispensaries by offering a platform engineered for our connected world.”
