Boosted by confinement, a CBD shop with bicycle delivery sets up in Bordeaux
By Nicolas Gosselin
CBD Bicycle disembarks at Bordeaux ! Launched in January 2020 in Marseille, the start-up specializes in sale of legal cannabis with delivery by bicycle couriers.
Containment boosts sales
And trade is a hit, in particular thanks to confinement. “It is not the only reason, but it is true that confinement boosts our activity”, recognizes Morgan Ben Haïm, the founder of the company, who first developed his activity in Marseilles then in Lyon.
Several factors explain this increase in activity during confinement. Already, people are spending more time at home, so it’s more conducive to chilling. Also, the current health situation is very anxiety-provoking. Not being able to work, socialize, see loved ones… Some clients are looking for an alternative solution to medicinal products, with a soothing effect without the side effects of anxiolytics.
In partnership with Pickup Courier, delivery is possible on Bordeaux intra and extra-boulevards, but also in Pessac, Bègles, Talence, Mérignac and Le Bouscat.
Delivered within two hours
As soon as the order is placed, Pickup couriers deliver within two hours Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
“As we don’t have a physical store, our prices are more affordable and delivery by bike is very convenient. The bicycle is freed from many constraints in the city center ”, develops Morgan Ben Haïm, 34 years old, former project manager in the associative environment.
Launched at the beginning of November in Bordeaux, the activity of CBD Bicyclette is exponential. Morgan Ben Haïm admits that he did not expect such rapid development.
THC smokers turn to CBD
During the first confinement, he remembers in Marseille that many weed smokers, cloistered at home and unable to obtain supplies from their dealer, had fallen back on CBD, cannabis without psychotropic.
According to him, this is less the case during this second confinement, much more flexible than the first. But he remains convinced that CBD has great potential in France.
“We are a country of heavy cannabis smokers. The arrival of CBD allows many people to ease off on THC consumption. I have many customers, who are between 25 and 45 years old, who have gone through a “smoking episode” in their life and now want to limit or even stop THC”, underlines the boss of CBD Bicyclette. .
