With Marijuana legalization happening in many US states and pending in many states, the Marijuana industry is expecting serious growth coming their way. By 2023, the legal cannabis business will reach nearly $40 Billion.

Marijuana Delivery Apps Business Models

These brands are generally active with three different app usage models.

Delivery Specific Model:

Under this model, you will focus on the delivery part only. Similar to FedEx or UPS but for Marijuana. Your app infrastructure and offline resources are to be used for the delivery of marijuana.

Brand App:

You are a marijuana store or brand and you will develop the mobile app to better serve your own customers. Walmart and Target’s app are a good examples of this business model.

Aggregator:

You will focus on connecting sores and customers by providing your application platform and delivery services. Uber, Grubhub are some major examples of this model.

Which Business Model To Choose?

There are multiple factors that need to be considered before choosing your own app-based business model.

The Market Size: if you have a large market, you can utilize aggregator and brand-based business models for more profit.

Brand Recognition: If your target area is full of new startups with no established brand, it makes sense to go for a brand-based business model and create a unique position in the market.

Competition: If the competition amongst the marijuana shops is cutthroat you can simply tap into the entire market by positioning yourself as an aggregator and reaping the benefits of the multiple players in the market.
