We started Marvina because we were frustrated by the current ways to legally buy marijuana. Retail dispensaries are great but they are often hard to get to and crowded. We also found the process of selecting strains in front of a budtender to be intimidating for all but the most experienced connoisseur. So we thought, why not bring the experience of a wine club, or CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) to marijuana?

Marvina partners with dispensaries to serve patients in their area. While you interact with Marvina through our website the marijuana you recieve each month is grown and delivered by the dispensary that you signed up to. We're starting in San Francisco but plan to expand across California and the country soon.

What does Marvina mean?

Nothing. Well actually its a nod to Malvina Reynolds, one of our favorite songwriters. Her song Little Boxes was also the theme song of one of our favorite TV shows, Weeds. (Ok, when we talk about Weeds we really mean seasons 1-3 because the other seasons really don't compare to those first three. If you're a fan of the show you know what we mean.)
