TORONTO—Uber Canada and Tokyo Smoke announced a partnership to allow customers to order cannabis in Ontario. Uber Eats now has a dedicated section on its digital marketplace for Tokyo Smoke's virtual stores. Consumers can place orders from Tokyo Smoke's flower collection and accessories on the Uber Eats app, and then pick up their purchase at the respective Tokyo Smoke stores.
Here’s how it works:
- Ontario consumers can select the "cannabis" category or search for "Tokyo Smoke" in the Uber Eats app. They will see a warning that they must be of legal age to enter the Tokyo Smoke virtual storefront.
- After confirming their age, the consumer is taken to the menu of an area Tokyo Smoke store to place an order.
- Orders will be fulfilled within an hour after being placed.
- When consumers head to Tokyo Smoke to pick up their order, the order will be fulfilled by a Tokyo Smoke employee who is CannSell certified and will check the customer’s ID.
"We are partnering with industry leaders like Tokyo Smoke to offer safe, convenient options for people in Ontario to purchase legal cannabis," said Lola Kassim, general manager of Uber Eats Canada. "By combining a streamlined ordering process through the Uber Eats app with Tokyo Smoke's in-person pickup service, we're creating a new end-to-end experience for responsible cannabis ordering across the province."
