|What problem are you solving?
|Far too often, people are introduced to the world of cannabis and feel overwhelmed by the critical, yet daunting, choice of strains. Not all strains are created equal, especially when considering how no two people are equal. That is, a strain may have a positive effect on me and a negative on you. With WoahStork, we help prevent sub-optimal experiences by providing personalized strain recommendations. All within the comfort of their home, users can use WoahStork to find the perfect strain for them, for any occasion, and order it online!
|What is your solution?
|WoahStork is the intelligent choice for ordering cannabis online. Medical or recreational users can upload their ID and medical marijuana recommendation and order online, for pickup or delivery, from nearby dispensaries. Users can receive personalized strain recommendations for any occasion by using our \”Strain Genie\”. Users will be able to order from any dispensary carrying their desired products. Users will also receive rewards for leaving strain and dispensary reviews — redeemable for discounted and free cannabis on their next order. We partner with dispensaries throughout California, Colorado, and Oregon. WoahStork is forever free for users. WoahStork charges dispensaries a flat transaction fee any time a user places an order through our platform.
