ParcelPal Technology Inc. is entering the cannabis space to provide a safe and efficient way to deliver medical cannabis to Calgary patients.

The Vancouver-based company announced Aug. 22 a distribution agreement with Canadian medical cannabis producer, Aphria, Inc. Patients can purchase product from Aphria’s online store and use ParcelPal’s technology platform to track their purchase in real time and have their product delivered directly to any location they specify in the City of Calgary.

“The legal cannabis space continues to serve as a sector filled with significant growth potential for ParcelPal,” said president and CEO, Kelly Abbott, in a statement. “Management believes that we are launching our legal cannabis delivery platform at the ideal time as legislation across the country continues to expand… We look forward to establishing ourselves as a market leader in the cannabis delivery space and capturing meaningful market share in 2019 and beyond.”

ParcelPal also collaborated with MADD Canada to ensure that not only do consumers have unfettered access to their medicinal cannabis in a safe and timely manner but that the technology will assist in eliminating impaired drivers from roadways by removing their need to drive to or from cannabis stores for product.

Abbott said the company expects additional cities will be added to its cannabis distribution network across the country, as time and regulations allow.
