TORONTO, CANADA – Stoners north of the border will no longer need to order weed and munchies separately. DoorDash has signed a deal with Superette, a leading local cannabis retailer to provide cannabis pickup in Toronto, Canada.

According a press release from Superette, this is the first time DoorDash will be handling cannabis orders. With a proven track record for transforming cannabis retail shopping into an immersive experience, Superette will apply their creative approach to cannabis retail on the DoorDash marketplace app.

In a emailed comment, a DoorDash Canada confirmed the company has launched cannabis pickup and is working with Superette and “will partner closely with the local government in Canada to explore new opportunities.”

“We are super excited to be able to partner with DoorDash to continue to transform how consumers engage with cannabis! In true Superette fashion, every element of the experience has been carefully considered with the goal of making our retail experience digital on the DoorDash platform,” said Drummond Munro, co-founder of Suprette.

Superette embodies DoorDash’s mission to grow and empower local communities and partners with local restaurants and food banks, as well as sourcing from sustainable vendors. The launch combines the convenience of pre-ordering and picking up cannabis at your local store. It also offers Superette access to the large customer base DoorDash has in the Toronto metro area.

DoorDash and Superette will offer a compliant product to ensure that consumers are able to access the best of their neighborhood. Customers are age-gated, so only those customers who confirm that they are aged 19+ can view cannabis retail store information, cannabis products, or anything related to cannabis. Superette will verify IDs and strictly enforce maximum possession amount at the store during pickup.
