Puffy Delivery (also known as Organix/Puffy Delivery or Organix Delivery) is a cannabis delivery company serving communities across Southern California. Puffy Delivery carries a wide range of cannabis products at prices comparable to those charged at other storefront and delivery dispensaries. Puffy Delivery accepts telephone and online orders and gives customers the option to pay by credit card or with cash. The company serves medical and recreational patients with an emphasis on customer education, making explicit their purpose as a cannabis provider in their Weedmaps mission statement:

Our goal is to give our patients access to the absolute healthiest and best alternative medicine as well as the tools to make informed decisions on how Cannabis can benefit their personal situation best. WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU!

An undated, “sponsored” article (i.e. advertisement) in the Irvine Weekly, noted at the time of publication that although California had not licensed any cannabis delivery companies to operate throughout the state, across all counties, Puffy Delivery had already “secured licenses to not only sell cannabis in Orange County, but also in San Diego, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Francisco and a few other hotspots ranging from north to south”. These several discrete licenses afforded Puffy Delivery an aggregate reach beyond any other California delivery service, providing Californians throughout the state access to the same menu and product choices and the same delivery time window (“…about 47 minutes per delivery, one of the fastest delivery times on the market”).

I chose Puffy Delivery for my first cannabis home delivery experience this past week after checking out their Weedmaps menu and comparing it to others from companies serving my area in Los Angeles County. My product list included a full gram Strawberry Cough Stiiizy pod and a few grams of wax, hopefully a GG#4 live resin and an indica strain, depending on what was available. Puffy Delivery’s menu is more extensive than most storefront menus and they carry multiple brands and items for each product category. The items in each category vary in potency and price, though all are tested and safe. Most importantly to me, Puffy Delivery carries a robust variety of cannabis extracts.

There’s no disguising the fact that discounts are what enable me to patronize the cannabis industry to the extent that I do, trying new products, storefronts and services and blogging about them. Thus, I am always in search of a new cannabis experience that can be had at a reduced price. Puffy Delivery offers a very generous 30% off first-time patient discount which paid the taxes and a little more toward my purchase of the aforementioned Stiiizy pod as well as a gram each of Manolos Sunset Sherbet shatter and Raw Garden GG#4 sauce. Although Puffy Delivery’s excellent selection and reasonable prices were key, it was the sizable first-time patient discount that facilitated this new experience in obtaining cannabis meds.

Getting set up as a first-time Puffy Delivery customer was easy enough. I took a selfie with ID in hand and texted it along with a picture of my medical recommendation and cannabis order to Puffy and awaited their reply. About twenty minutes later the agent called me and said she had sent a text, but I hadn’t received it. She confirmed my items were in stock then reiterated the individual prices and confirmed what the total would be after applying the discount. She further confirmed that I was being charged only medical use taxes and gave me an hour and a half to two-hour window for delivery. The delivery window wasn’t a problem at all, though it is worth noting that it was longer than the 47 minutes cited in the Irvine Weekly puff piece (pardon the pun!).

Although he took a little longer than 47 minutes, the delivery guy arrived in less time than the estimate given over the phone. My meds appeared at my doorstep in about an hour, which felt very quick. Apparently, my delivery guy had tried to call me en route without getting through. True enough, I had received a call from an out of state area code shortly before his arrival but had assumed it was spam call due to the many I receive each day. Good news is that although I blocked his number, thinking it was spam, he still showed up with my order. He explained that they call en route because some customers prefer that the branded Puffy Delivery vehicle not park in front of their homes. After confirming the order’s accuracy and accepting payment, my delivery guy kindly stuck around to chat for a few minutes. (Suggestion to Puffy Delivery: Would be helpful in the future to advise clients to expect a call from their driver en route, and to note details such as out of state area code.)

Patronizing Puffy Delivery afforded me the opportunity to experience cannabis purchasing at my own pace, in the comfort of my own home, where I could interact with cannabis professionals calmly and unhurriedly, both on the phone and in person. My in-store dispensary purchases almost always feel rushed with on-the-spot strain and variety decisions hastily made based on real-time inventory availability. This is a huge downside of cannabis storefront purchases, especially if a dispensary doesn’t maintain an accurate online menu. The Puffy Delivery experience was much more of what I wanted in a thoughtful, deliberative and analytical cannabis purchasing experience.

I wholeheartedly recommend Puffy Delivery to anyone interested in cannabis home delivery. My initial experience with the company was unequivocally positive. The only stumbling block preventing my personal full-throttle Puffy Delivery patronage is their lack of regular daily or weekly discounts. But even without such discounts, Puffy is a worthy, licensed cannabis provider selling tested, safe products at average prices and delivering them to your home at no extra cost (for orders $50 and up) in about an hour. Their staff is informed, professional and friendly, they maintain an accurate online menu, and they get your meds to you quickly. I would gladly make a full price, no discount purchase from Puffy Delivery if unable to get to a dispensary or to obtain an otherwise unavailable product. Puffy Delivery gets my unwavering endorsement, as a reliable and trustworthy cannabis resource, particularly for any first-time cannabis home delivery consumers wanting to experience a calmer and more human approach to purchasing cannabis.

Epilogue: Although I linked to it in the first paragraph, I hadn’t discovered Puffy Delivery’s official website until finished with this piece. I’ll be scrutinizing it, myself, but in the interim I encourage anyone so interested to have a look as well, here.
