Dutchie, the leading e-commerce platform for cannabis pickup and delivery closed a $15 Million round of investment yesterday.
It was not really surprising to see Snoop Dogg’s Casa Verde Capital in the list of investors. However, the company also announced that Kevin Durant’s Thirty Five Ventures was backing the project!
Is anyone really surprised?
Remember that famous scene from 2015? The one where KD got caught with weed in LA during an interview.
Ever since that day, rumours that KD was a pot aficionado were circulating. Well, this time his strong interest for pot is official! After Mike Tyson’s recent declaration of love for cannabis, our community is proud to welcome another legendary champion to the team.
Now, is this a smart investment?
Might be too early to call, but Dutchie positions itself as the Shopify of pot.
The company is an online ordering platform allowing consumers to purchase cannabis.
Founded in 2017, Dutchie created the easiest way to buy weed products and have them available for pickup or delivered right to your door.
Composed of 36 employees, the Oregon-based tech start up is seeing roughly $140 million in gross volume. While its main competitor Eaze is only available in California and Oregon, Dutchie already operates in 18 states.
Sounds like a smart move now?
Well, even if we can’t give you a definitive answer today, this fresh piece of news teaches us another lesson. And it’s a reassuring one!
Whether you aspire to be a sports champion, a successful entrepreneur or a famous artist, it seems like weed isn’t gonna stop you.
Seems like a lot of people would benefit from learning that, don’t you think?
