American Green, the company behind The ZaZZZ marijuana vending machine has begun shipping the first of many machines nationwide last week, the first of which are going to medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado.
Since unveiling ZaZZZ in April to a large and eager crowd of spectators, investors, and members of the press at a popular marijuana dispensary, the demand for the first-ever consumer-operated, automated, ID verifying, marijuana vending machine has has continued to grow.
Once a customer’s identification card is scanned, the ZaZZZ process uses real-time verification to match the person with their ID. If there is a positive match, the customer can make a purchase using cash, bitcoin, and soon credit or debit, once banking regulations have adjusted. If there is not a positive ID match, ZaZZZ’s security will prevent operation and the prospective customer will then be directed to speak with a staff member.
Product quality is paramount for both the dispensaries and the end customer. ZaZZZ machines are climate controlled to ensure only the freshest products are dispensed.
“It’s an exciting time and we, of course, are very happy to be moving ZaZZZ across the country into dispensaries who understand all of the possibilities that this technology offers,” says Stephan Shearin, president at American Green. “We are committed to building strong long-term partnerships with dispensaries that will continue to scale revenue and profits for years to come.”
