Forget the budtender, one newly-opened marijuana dispensary in Washington is offering its clients a purely digital experience.
The Reef, located in Bremerton, Washington, claims that it is the first digital marijuana dispensary, ditching the staff for flat screens and tablets located throughout the store.
The store is littered with a number of tablets, where customers can sift through its products, and review information such as effects, THC and CBD levels, user reviews, grower info and origin. Customers can then add product to their carts, much like you would any online store.
Max Simon, entrepreneur and owner of The Reef told Mashable in an email that the tablets were the, “best way to provide customer with most comprehensive and accurate information.”
And let’s face it, sometimes you just don’t want to talk to anyone. It makes this shop the perfect place for people who want to be discreet, or someone who’s just having a day.
Of course a real live human will be present to answer any questions if needed, deliver your product and cash you out. Much of the legal cannabis industry is still cash only thanks to the federally regulated banks and marijuana’s status as a Schedule 1 drug by the DEA.
In addition to cannabis, the shop also offers edibles, glass, and vapes for all your toking needs, as well as smoking accessories.
