SF Peninsula Weed Delivery

The Bay Area's Peninsula sits between ultra progressive San Francisco, and pragmatic Silicon Valley.  Comprised of well healed neighborhoods and great weather, the strategically situated smattering of cities mostly located in San Mateo County.  The Peninsula is home to tech workers who are headquartered in either direction, San Francisco to the North and San Jose to the South.  Unfortunately thats where some of the closest marijuana dispensaries can be found.  Dispensaries are not yet permitted in the vast majority of San Mate County.  This makes for a subpar scenario for San Mateo County residents..including a segment of tech workers who smoke a lot of weed.

Delivering Cannabis in San Mateo County and Peninsula

Tech workers..like most adults in the Bay Area, partake in cannabis.  Cities like Burlingame, Los Altos, and Millbrae are home to tech families and parents drinking less, instead reaching for marijuana for a healthier inebriation..sans hangover.  And not just unwind or party.  Many coders and content creators notoriously smoke weed or take edibles while on the job. A recent study published in tech.co found 17% or tech workers admit to being high during work.  So given tech workers' acceptance if not reliance on cannabis, bud.com offers an elegant and intuitive cannabis ordering experience for our colleagues stuck in the dispensary desert that is San Mateo County.

We provide cannabis to the entire mid peninsula.  We offer, weed delivery in Burlingame,  weed delivery in San Carlos, weed delivery in San Mateo, weed delivery in Belmont, weed delivery in Redwood City

Cannabis Delivery Near SFO Airport

One reason the Peninsula is a popular location for tech workers and executives, it its proximity to SFO International, the world class international Airport which is located just outside the City in South SF.  Thus bud.com offers weed delivery in South San Francisco as well as, weed delivery in Daly City, and weed delivery in San Bruno. These are cities closest to San Francisco International Airpot - SFO, and home to conveniently situated Hotels.  In addition to delivering weed to hotels, bud.com also deliver to Airbnb rentals in popular cities for tech travels coming to the Bay Area by way of SFO.  Specifically we offer, weed delivery in Millbrae, a popular destination for business travelers.  Finally we also serve those staying near the Coast, providing weed delivery in Pacifica.  It's worth noting that Pacifica is the only City in San Mateo county that has legal cannabis dispensaries at the time of this post.

South Bay, Silicon Valley and Peninsula Weed Near Me

Further South, the Peninsula eventually passes Sand Hill Road, famed home to blue blood VCs, and the gateway to the fabled Silicon Valley.  Quite the irony that most VCs known to identify and fuel the brazen visions of contemporary disruptors, have largely steered clear of cannabis investments (with the notable exemption of Peter Thiel) even now in 2021. With Cannabis becoming mainstream (dare we say essential) and part of a healthier, more informed paradigm, leading to a titanic shift in both consumption and buying habits.  Predictably Beer sales have edged down in the months following cannabis legalization in Canada.  So It's reasonable to assume that as the political climate continues to shift and Federal legalization becomes a reality, VCs will come in droves.  Cannabis needs tech and tech needs cannabis. Until then, bud.com will deliver inspiration to your door..in other words, we offer weed delivery in Menlo Park, weed delivery in Los Altos , and weed delivery in Mountain View for pre-gaming prior to concerts at Shoreline Amphitheater.

For future tech workers already living in the Valley, who are over 21 and looking for weed near me!?  We offer weed delivery in Palo Alto and, weed delivery in San Jose for students of two of finest learning institutions in our great state - Stanford and San Jose State.






Weed Delivery Across the East Bay

Oakland has long been known for its progressive politics and as a cultural melding pot with sounds of Jazz and smell of weed in the streets.  Hell, even the sports franchises most associated with Oakland- the Raiders and A's, are known for their non-conformist images and eclectic player and coaches personalities'.  The teams followed the persona of the respective owners of these franchises.  Al Davis and Charlie Finley were each disruptors in their sport.  Heavily scrutinized by many because of their 'different' approach, both delivered multiple championships home to the East Bay .  And Raiders and A's players were known to party like rockstars during their winning years, then go home to their homes and families in the East Bay Suburbs.  And many of the Raiders and A's fans too, live outside of Oakland sprinkled throughout the East Bay.

So of course, bud.com delivers across Contra Costa County and Alameda county, to ensure the entire East Bay Area has access to great cannabis products they can order online and get delivered to their door.

Weed Delivery throughout Alameda County

Much like Oakland's maverick Sport team images, the Town was on the frontline of the Cannabis legalization fight, home to some the first medical dispensaries in California in the late 1990s.  And the fruits of legalization can be seen in neighboring cities in Alameda County.  Weed delivery in Oakland is where we started. But we at bud.com couldn't sit by and watch our fellow sports fans and activist not have access to weed delivery in Fremont or weed delivery in Hayward.  Then our friends started asking for weed delivery in Berkeley, since they were active and pivotal in the legalization push as well.

We then refocused on Alameda county cities that have no dispensaries, and started serving weed delivery in San Leandro, weed delivery in Livermore, weed delivery in Pleasanton, weed delivery in Dublin. We noticed these folks smoke a lot of weed and loved edibles.  So we kept our head down as COVID entered our vocabulary and aggressively expanded to enable our friends to have access to weed delivery in Albany ,weed delivery in Castro Valley,and even for our friends that are practically surrounded by Oakland, weed delivery in Piedmont.

Hearing the amazing feedback and comments in Reviews, we then re-focussed to the remaining that East Bay that have legal dispensaries. Although Alameda now has a couple operational dispensaries, the feedback we got led us to provide weed delivery in Alameda. And soon after we naturally expanded to the home of Pixar and began providing weed delivery in Emeryville.

Contra Costa County Weed Delivery

Bud.com allows weed enthusiast sport fans (or just weed enthusiasts) order weed online 24 per day, seven days a week, 365 days per year.

So of course of our friends in the neighboring Contra Costa County, the other significant amalgamation of cities that makes up the 'East Bay Area', wanted in on the flexibility and convenience of cannabis delivery. At the time of this post, Contra Costa has no dispensaries in any its cities.  Since cannabis was deemed essential in California, we at Bud knew we had a duty.  The answer-weed delivery in Concord, weed delivery in San Ramon, weed delivery in Walnut Creek, weed delivery in Danville, weed delivery in Martinez, weed delivery in Pleasant Hillweed delivery in Lafayette, weed delivery in El Cerrito, weed delivery in Orinda, and of course weed delivery in Moraga.

Delivering Edibles, Pre-rolls, Vape Carts, THC, and CBD

The East Bay offers an amazing mix of urban city culture, pristine views, and well healed suburban communities.  For the diverse tastes in such a diverse region, Bud offers a selection of Flower and prerolls for our East Bay smokers.  You can choose delivery of edibles , including all popular brands of Gummies, including Plus Gummies, KIVA.  Rest assured if you have dietary restrictions, we likely have products to address your needs. Gluten Free, Sugar Free, and Kosher products are available.

For vape fans, we offer a broad selection of carts, pods, and live resin vapes.  We also have a vast selection of cannabis topicals and creams for treating localized pain.  All product categories including Flower, Vape, pre-rolls, and edibles are all offered in THC and also CBD, for those looking for a more functional experience.

Why'd we write this? We like weed, the Raiders, the A's...and we figured why the F not?!  We're from here!  Give bud.com a try.

Let's bend the arc towards Equal Justice

tldr; happy 4th of July - †oo many Americans aren't free. This weekend bud.com is matching donations to Equal Justice Initiative.

A few weeks ago we watched as Americans confronted each other in the streets. Some members of our team and their families marched in solidarity: we agree with the cries to value black lives and to hold our justice system accountable.

People handling cannabis have been at the receiving end of aggressive policing for decades. Certain communities, particularly black and latinx communities, were targeted by police representing the predominately white lawmakers who initially criminalized marijuana plant medicine. Now formal regulations allow companies like bud.com to sell cannabis proudly in public, online even. As our weed delivery business takes shape, we have a special obligation to pay back for the costs of the war on drugs. Decades of locking up people for what is now legal has limited the potential for generations of black and brown entrepreneurs.

We looked at charities that specifically focus on healing drug war and cannabis prohibition wounds. But there's a bigger problem out there: the creeping reach of the carceral state. For too many people beyond pot the tools of government are punitive and not enabling. The deep unrest roiling our country will only come to calm through challenging interventions to improve our collective conduct. Since our justice system is a reflection of our values made into rules, it is critical that we live up to our best values of equality. Beyond bud, everyone deserves quality justice.

Equal Justice Initiative is working to establish the basic rules of fairness and equality under law. Based in Montgomery Alabama, EJI has the nation's deep economic roots in slavery just underfoot as they work to help the wrongly convicted and the poor get access to effective legal representation.

This Independence Day weekend you can elect to add a donation to the Equal Justice Initiative to your purchase. bud.com will be matching those donations. We went looking for a charity making a direct impact on a serious sustained social ill. We believe Equal Justice Initiative is part of the solution to addressing America's racist past and building a better more equal future.


We ran this campaign to raise money for the Equal Justice Initiative over the Independence Day weekend. Across our locations, 31% of bud shoppers elected to make a donation to support EJI with us. This is much higher than we had expected; we were delighted and humbled by our customers' participation.

Black Lives Matter.

Bud believes, unequivocally, that Black Lives Matter. We are committed to doing our part in the fight against white supremacy, and against the ongoing institutional violence and disenfranchisement facing the black community. As a cannabis industry business, we recognize our deeper responsibility in responding to this crisis.

We know that we are late in making this statement. It was important to us that our response include the voices of our black colleagues, so we have spent the last few weeks in roundtable discussions, collaboratively defining our values and brainstorming ways we can make tangible impact both now and on a continuing basis.

Systemic racism and police brutality are not new issues facing black people, nor will they be resolved overnight. Cannabis industry businesses in particular have a responsibility to undo the gentrification of our industry and uplift communities that have been impacted by the war on drugs. We will be following up this statement with an action plan outlining specific steps we can take as a company and with our supply chain. These actions will be written in a scaleable way, ensuring that the impact we're able to make grows alongside us as we do. We look forward to sharing our commitments with you soon.

In love and solidarity,

Cannabis Delivery and COVID19 Coronavirus Quarantine

At bud.com delivery, we serve people out in the world, in their homes. During this outbreak of Spring 2020 we wanted to explain how bud.com is handling home delivery of cannabis in this pandemic quarantine for SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes, named “coronavirus disease 2019” (COVID-19).

Safe delivery steps we take in cannabis delivery during COVID19 coronavirus quarantine

State cannabis regulations mandate that we deliver the package to an adult over 21, so unfortunately we can't leave cannabis on the doorstep. Our drivers keep a respectful distance, and keep hand-sanitizer in their cars for use between calls. When they come to work and between deliveries we encourage our team to wash their hands and wear gloves.

Our delivery team members stay home if they are sick. Sick drivers can mean a late delivery, or closing early; better safe than sorry. We apologize for any service interruptions. We are hiring cannabis delivery drivers to meet demand.

We have been mindful of germs from the beginning since we serve immunocompromised customers. Ultimately any contact with the outside world carries risks; we work to minimize our potential to spread illness. 

Cannabis: like medicine + groceries

As our society decides how to function during a pandemic, we could run a social experiment: trap folks indoors for weeks without access to weed. It's possible that governments could order the closure of all "non-vital" businesses. Early in the spread of the pandemic, Italy ordered a closure to all businesses except groceries and drug stores. Would that kind of order effect cannabis businesses? We would argue cannabis is a bit of both grocery and pharmacy. Some people rely on cannabis as medicine to treat conditions and manage chronic pain. These patients should not unduly expose themselves to germs leaving the house to get medical marijuana. Other people will turn to alcohol from the market, drinking at home to blur the boredom. Too much isolated booze consumption can have sad side effects. We hope bud.com can provide a safe way for home-bound people to get access to lab-tested medical and recreational cannabis.

Assuming our supply chain members can stay healthy, we aim to continue weed delivery in the weeks ahead as the streets and businesses grow more quiet. Our bud.com team is already virtual. All of us live close with older folks and we are concerned to protect them from undue exposure.

In this unexpected time, too many businesses will close. We love our local restaurants, clubs, theaters, dance studios, coffee shops, bars - they're going to take a huge hit in the spring 2020. It's going to upend a lot of lives. We hope our supply chains can stay healthy so we can serve during a rough time.  We all need to aggressively support those people and communities impacted, if there are mass closures.

We have definitely noticed an uptick in requests: more people are ordering residential cannabis delivery during the day. It's a bit like the weekend didn't end on Monday 9 March, the orders just kept coming in. Perhaps cannabis use can alleviate the side effects of being trapped inside for days and weeks. Perhaps we want sleep aids because there appears to be more to worry about. Perhaps we'll take on indoor calisthenics and need something to take the ache off.  Rest assured our shelves are stocked and we are able to keep up with demand and deliver cannabis products safely and mindfully during this very weird time. 

At bud.com, we work to have a healthy company that can serve lab-tested products to people who want to remain healthy. We wish good luck and good health to all of us. Thanks to Sandra Garcia from The New York Times who gave us a chance to speak to these issues in her April 10 article "Staying Safe While Delivering Weed in the Pandemic".

Peak Cannabis Numerology Foiled?

If 4/20 is a holiday based on calendar numbering, this year is the most epic 4/20 there may ever be in human history! Not only is the day 4/20, but the whole month is also 4/20! And if you write the whole thing it's 4/20/2020 which is just a lot of 20. And if you write 4/20/20, there's 20/20 vision in there. Not until 4/20/2420 might the pot party potential be this big again.

And then coronavirus emerged to reset so much of human planning.

prohibited: pot prerolls in the park with strangers

So now for 4/20/20 we aren't going to be passing joints between strangers in a park. Many of us will be staring at futures grown more uncertain than usual. Death and illness loom larger in conversation. Maybe we need a party more than ever - to see a stranger and see them smiling because they're not wearing a mask.

But we don't puff puff pass in public on 4/20 this year. Because we value the human tribe. We value our elders. We don't want to be responsible for helping infect people we love. We don't want to lose more folks than we have to.

We can be inside if we have to. And cannabis can help us abide isolation, insecurity, anxiety, and boredom.

One Sesh In

To make Monday a bit memorable for marijuana mavens, a few of our dispensary partners are promoting The Great American Sesh In - a virtual online smoke session with famous tokers. Aundre Specialé is billed as a guest, as is Tommy Chong. I plan to drop by for a spell to see what's an online sesh; I hope the audience gets a chance to meet itself.

The event runs with @TheGreatAmericanSeshIn on Twitch on 4/20 from 11am-6pm PST. Sounds like a bit of a telethon (bongathon? tokeathon? tokealong?), with proceeds will benefit Direct Relief, working to get protective gear and critical care medications to health workers on the front-lines of COVID-19.

The dispensaries are promoting The Great American Sesh In to give their dedicated audience a reason to stay home on 4/20. From the program's web site: "you are flattening the rush of patrons to your location on 4/20, and safely maintaining social distancing." Dispensaries don't want to see a long queue of people lined up for 4/20 deals when they only have curbside pickup. How strange is this time! Consider delivery for 4/20 instead of going anywhere weed-related.

delivery on 4/20

bud.com will be running safe legal delivery of fire weed and compelling cannabis products for all of 4/20, with a number of deals featured across our service - check your area. We have been busier than ever in the last month. Crews of dedicated folks work on delivery, dispatch, and dispensary operations to keep the cannabis flowing. Some of us are socially isolated in our homes. Some of us are driving to people's homes to make deliveries. We are grateful for our front line folks, who are working hard and taking precautions to protect themselves and you.

One of our early business partners told me something he liked about working in weed. He says cannabis promotes proactive empathy. Let's recognize what's happening here: we value our collective safety and health, so we're not going to see each other out in the world for this momentous moment of marijuana numerology. We are alone together. Maybe this 4/20 we connect online. Ultimately, let's remember much of the journey is inwards. Good luck, be well, have the fun you can.

educating veterans about cannabis

Ryan Miller runs Operation E*V*A*C (Educating Veterans About Cannabis) based in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. Their mission is to “support the growth and healing of veterans through mutual assistance, personal development, and community service.” He hosts 16 veterans meetings a month across six different cannabis dispensaries, serving about 80 veterans.

Miller is now training another facilitator so the program can expand into the South Bay in Northern California. Each facilitators has studied “Mindful Resilience for Trauma Recovery” by the Veterans Yoga Project. They undertook Peer Specialist Training with the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance, enabling them to provide peer support through the VA, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

How do they guide veterans to use cannabis? Miller replies: “Cannabis is so subjective. Really it’s going to be trial and error until the patient figures out what's best for them. We can offer guidance on how to trial and error safely.”

Miller suggests people begin with edibles: start with a conservative portion, wait 60-90 minutes for onset, then maybe take more if you need it. If people take too much, he suggests that taking CBD can help balance the impact of THC, and black pepper as well. (Because it contains terpenes, smelling black pepper can help people come down a bit immediately and chewing black peppercorns can help balance the high in about an hour.)  Where did he pick up his knowledge? From years working at Bay Area dispensaries, learning from the patients and their experiences.

Do veterans have unique consumption patterns? Miller responds immediately: “Veterans tend to be on the higher end of consumption, in terms of milligram content, in terms of frequency. Of course they're all different, they’re not a homogenous group, but it's definitely on the higher end of consumption.”

This high consumption rate means that veterans are not happy about the 100 mg milligram limits for edibles in California. You can’t buy a single 1,000 mg edible brownie; now edibles can’t have more than 100 mg in a package. So someone with PTSD who needs 1,000 mg each morning to manage their anxiety must purchase and consume ten 100 mg brownies. Miller remarks acidly “you're going to treat people's pain but give them diabetes.”

Ryan Miller currently hosts veteran’s services in a dispensary setting. Thinking big, he wants to use that as an advocacy platform, promoting safe access for veterans in every state. “You shouldn't have to leave your friends, your family, your work, your community, your church, to come to California, Washington, Colorado to get your medicine.” Miller observes veterans coming to California and sleeping in their cars to get access to cannabis to treat their pain.

“We fought for the country, not the state.”

Ryan Miller stands up after submitting public commentary to the Bureau of Cannabis Control, Oakland, August 7 2018

What about the long term? Miller envisions safe access to cannabis for active duty troops: “We're doing the work that the VA should be doing,” he says. “because the VA should be giving compassionate cannabis to troops like they are so willing to do with opioids & antidepressants.”

We asked Ryan Miller what a delivery service could do to help support veteran communities. We agreed we could help spread the word about Operation EVAC with articles like this. And, Miller suggested, we could help veterans get access to cannabis.

bud.com is proud to offer Veterans a discount on their cannabis delivery purchases. We believe cannabis is powerful medicine and we want to promote healing where it can provide real benefit. Once they sign up with bud.com during checkout, veterans automatically have 5% taken off all future purchases. We’re excited to offer more affordable cannabis, especially to those people with limited mobility.
