Manifest Seven announces acquisition of M Delivers (now Weden) and 1-800-Cannabis
Cannabis isn’t even yet legal across the United States, but the industry continues to build up and grow. Manifest Seven is a California-based company looking to build a “cannabis superhighway” across the state, and they’ve announced two pretty significant acquisitions. The first is a delivery company called M Delivers (though M Delivers just recently announced its name change to Weden, even if that’s not the name used in the press release). M Delivers has been building up a base of more than 30,000 retail customers around the state (we’ve used them once or twice!) and the company is fully licensed and in compliance, making it one of the more formidable delivery businesses in the state.
Manifest Seven has also grabbed the number 1-800-Cannabis. We’re not as familiar with that number, but Manifest Seven says that the portal will “serve as the centralized gateway through which businesses and consumers alike will be able to access M7’s comprehensive suite of omnichannel solutions.” So all of that stuff! It’s also just a nice, simple, memorable number — it’s a good guess we’ll see that on billboards around the Golden State soon enough.
Manifest Seven has also changed its name recently, from MJIC, so it seems like the company is definitely aligning to grow and scale up over the next few years. These acquisitions are definitely big moves among the burgeoning California cannabis industry, where chains like Med Men and groups like Flow Kana are also starting to stake out their claims. As we move closer to national legalization, we’re likely to see even more consolidation and rebranding as these companies try to position themselves to grab the biggest market possible.
