The recent federal crackdown on nonprofit medical marijuana dispensaries operating in locations the DOJ deems too close to schools have some dispensaries turning to the streets, so to speak, with convenient mobile delivery services, according to a recent report by KTVU Channel 2 News. As San Francisco and other California communities see a healthy rise in mobile marijuana dispensary delivery services, finding them and keeping abreast of new services has been a challenge for many patients. Fortunately, Doobons.com has launched geotargeting technology that instantly locates local medical marijuana resources when users enter the www.doobons.com website. “Medical marijuana patients not only need medicine, but safe and convenient ways to get it,” noted John, founder of Doobons.com.
“Using geotargeting technology to locate the person accessing our site, Doobons.com finds local delivery services in their area and graphically displays them on a map. Users can also enter other cities to see what services are available in other areas.” There are other needs driving mobile delivery service. “While some medical marijuana patients enjoy getting out and exploring the different medications and dispensaries in the neighborhood and the social aspect of cannabis, some patients and their caregivers have illnesses that prevent them from going out, others want to keep their medical issues private, and some just prefer to have their medicinal cannabis delivered safely and privately to their doorstep,” said John. Online medical marijuana resource Doobons.com helps patients find both fixed and mobile dispensaries using state-of-the-art location detection technology that instantly locates both store-front dispensaries and delivery services around them as soon as they arrive at the Doobons.com website.
Because the website can identify the website user’s location and match it to delivery areas, Doobons.com is becoming the main hub for medical marijuana delivery services. Through technology and personal attention, Doobons.com is poised to propel medical marijuana delivery service industry to an entirely new level. Doobons.com’s technology works at both fixed locations and on mobile devices. When a patient activates their device, such as a computer or smart phone, the service provider identifies the user’s location via IP address and/or GPS tracking. Doobons.com then finds the resources in the vicinity of the user and plots the locations on a map. To increase their visibility, businesses can enhance their listing for a small monthly fee. Paid customers can also post coupons and special promotions (deals) on Doobons.com’s Deals page using a back-end tool. The self-serve feature allows businesses to post their own deals at any time, so they can post “daily deals” or instant campaigns. “If sales are down one day, a dispensary can post a coupon or special offer instantly in the desired location or geography to get people in the door,” explained John. “The advertiser also defines the geography where the deal appears, so patients don’t have to sift through ads outside of their geographic location when looking for a bargain.”
Patients can also type in the name of a city in the search tool to learn about special offers in other areas. “If you are heading to Santa Barbara for the weekend and would like to check out the local strains or take advantage of a 2-for-1 deal offered in the area, Doobons.com will show you what’s available so you can plan ahead,” said John. Doobons.com was designed to be convenient and to appeal to everyone, including those who are new to the world of medical cannabis. While most of today’s online medical marijuana directories are designed for patients who already know at least something about using medical marijuana, Doobons.com is designed to be user-friendly for patients of all ages and experience levels. Doobons.com is more than just another online medical marijuana directory. The site’s News, Resource, and Blog pages provide valuable information and advice for patients and caregivers. The information posted helps new patients learn about the ins and outs of the world of medical marijuana, and existing patients stay abreast of developments.
