BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A new online cannabis delivery platform will open for business Monday, becoming the first service of its kind to launch in Western New York since the state officially legalized recreational weed more than two years ago.
Canterra, an e-commerce site for adult-use recreational marijuana, will begin taking orders on Monday, with deliveries set to begin on Friday, August 11, the company announced in a media release. Canterra describes its business model as an “upscale cannabis delivery service combined with an easy and discreet shopping experience.” The branding derives from a combination of the word “cannabis” with “terra,” the Latin word for earth.
The announcement marks a new step for the slowly emerging retail weed industry in Western New York, coming just weeks after the area’s first brick-and-mortar dispensary opened its doors.
At launch, delivery will be available in Erie, Niagara, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Allegany, Wyoming, Genesee, Orleans, and Monroe counties. Canterra plans to expand its delivery network and cut down on delivery times by the end of the year.
“Canterra will provide a different experience for consumers interested in trying recreational cannabis products,” said Matthew
