You no longer need a medical marijuana card to buy cannabis
As of January 15, 2018 a medical marijuana card or recommendation from your doctor is no longer required to have legal cannabis delivered to your door!
First legal statewide California delivery service
Octavia Wellness is proud to be part of the first licensed California statewide cannabis delivery service, safely and conveniently delivering legal cannabis products right to your door. As always there are some exceptions like college campuses, federal government facilities or property (including military bases or national park land), or P.O. boxes and there are some counties in California which have banned deliveries altogether. But the majority of adult Californians now have access to legal cannabis. If you have any questions about whether you can receive legal cannabis just create a profile and input your zip code for confirmation. Octavia Wellness statewide delivery is $15, free for orders over $100.
But there are big changes
Now that cannabis is a legally regulated substance it cannot be shipped using services like USPS or UPS, so delivery will take longer. Like alcohol, legal cannabis can only be transported by a licensed delivery service, as of January 1, 2018. So while cannabis can ship be shipped legally, initially the system only allows Octavia Wellness to ship product once a week. As the industry grows we fully expect delivery times to decrease, but depending when an order is placed it could take from 2 – 10 days to deliver. Tuesday is the designated shipping day for Octavia Wellness so the cutoff for same week shipping is 12:00 Pacific Time on Mondays. Orders received before noon PT Monday will arrive in 2 – 5 business days. Orders received after the Monday noon cutoff, will arrive in 7 – 10 business days.
You will need to be present to receive your order
Again, because legal cannabis is regulated like alcohol, you must be present to receive your package and the delivery driver will ask to see your ID. To make it easier for customers to be at home, we’ve planned for orders to be delivered between 5:00 – 9:00 pm and the driver will be in contact with you via text to coordinate the delivery details.
A word about taxes and fees
Regulation is also affecting the cost of legal marijuana. As of January 15, 2018 Octavia Wellness will be charging a California state excise tax of 15% for both adult and medical use products in addition to the standard San Francisco sales tax of 8.5%. Holders of a state issued medical card (MMIC) which can only be obtained at your Local County Public Health Department are exempt from the 8.5% sales tax but must pay the 15% excise tax. To soften the blow a little, use the code EXCISETAX for 15% off any order over $100 through 1/31/2018.
