Cannabis Startup Meadow Unveils A Platform For Dispensaries To Manage Orders, Patient Intake

With California on a precipice of a ballot initiative next year that could legalize marijuana recreationally, scores of cannabis startups are vying to capture what is the nation’s largest market in advance of such a big regulatory change.

Meadow, a Y Combinator-backed startup, was one of the earlier ones with an ordering and delivery service for medicinal users that started about a year ago. While they have had a direct-to-consumer product for awhile, they’re now launching a more enterprise-focused product with Platform, a software suite for medical dispensaries to handle online and mobile ordering, delivery logistics, patient intake, and legal compliance.

“All of these pieces are going to be connected in what becomes a seed-to-sale platform for marijuana that is home-grown in California and delivered by dispensaries for patients in California,” said CEO David Hua.

Hua compared Meadow’s model to being a “Grubhub for cannabis.” Instead of owning and packaging the entire product from end-to-end, the company partners with dispensaries.

“With cannabis, you can be the king or a kingmaker,” said Hua, who added he prefers to be the latter. “There’s no way that any of the companies we partner with have the skills to build this technology. It’s really expensive.”

On platform, dispensaries can manage all of their products, orders and members and pull up analytics on how well sales are performing. They can see how many patients are joining, the top-selling products and they can toggle between data for different days or months of the year.

They can track individual products like edibles or certain varietals of marijuana to see how well they’re selling and manage their pricing.

It’s a Saas platform where dispensaries pay per month on the basis of how many customers they have. It’s a sliding scale. The company powers San Francisco dispensaries from The Apothecarium, BASA and SPARC.

That stream of revenue comes in addition to the roughly 10 percent cut the company takes out of any direct-to-consumer sales the website or mobile app facilitates on behalf of dispensaries.

回顾9月份的A股市场,乘用车板块结束前几个月的上涨态势,大部分个股股价出现一定程度回落。东方财富网数据显示,A股汽车指数曾于9月8日站上24869.53高点,但此后开启滑坡行情,截至9月30日收盘,该指数为22609.17,回撤幅度约10%。 不过在华为概念加持下,北汽蓝谷实现了超过20%的涨幅,位居A股乘用车板块第一。而其他乘用车股中,除上汽集团与力帆科技外,余者均有9.9%以上跌幅。9月30日,对于A股汽车股在9月份的普跌行情,有分析师向时代财经表示,“从整体看,这一方面是因为市场调整,另一方面则是马来西亚疫情导致芯片供应紧张,部分车企产能受限,销量不及预期。”值得关注的是,港美股上市车企9月整体股市表现不佳,仅特斯拉区间股价有所上涨。截至北京时间9月30日,6只港股汽车股当月总市值合共跌去1780.86亿港元,美股上市的“蔚小理”股价月跌幅均超10%。“一些美股中概新能源车板块近期跌幅较大,一方面是由于它们去年涨幅较大,市场已经反应了对它们未来的成长预期;另一方面,由于‘缺芯’和一些事故影响的冲击,它们的股价也容易出现波动;此外,不少中概新能源车公司业绩依然处于亏损状态,这些公司股票在中概股处于整体回调的走势中容易疲软。”9月30日,华西证券研究所海外策略研究员王一棠对时代财经称。图片来源:车企官网长城跌去千亿市值北汽蓝谷再获华为概念加持Wind数据显示,A股上市乘用车板块普跌,仅北汽蓝谷与力帆科技实现股价上涨。具体来看,长城汽车、小康股份单月跌幅均超过20%,其中长城汽车以20.44%的跌幅位居第一。截至9月30日收盘,长城汽车股价为52.6元/股,总市值为4858亿元,单月抹去超过千亿市值。单月市值损失超过400亿的车企还有比亚迪。Wind数据显示,比亚迪单月跌幅为9.9%,结束自5月份以来的连续上涨态势。其总市值此前一度超过中石油,但截至收盘,其总市值已回落至7138亿元。“长城、比亚迪等巨头的股价下跌,更多是由于新能源板块调整所致。”前述行业分析师向时代财经表示。此前,国信证券高级研究员张立超也像时代财经表示,“短期来看当前新能源汽车板块存在着一定的泡沫风险”。时代财经注意到,9月份,此前备受市场热捧的锂电龙头宁德时代股价在485元-541元的区间内持续震荡,截至9月30日收盘,其股价为525.73元/股,总市值为12244亿元。而赣锋锂业、国轩高科等其他锂电企业当9月股价也均呈现下滑态势。图片来源:车企官网不过张立超补充道,“未来新能源车长期向好的趋势不变,可作为长期投资的赛道选择”。值得注意的是,除了受到板块调整带来的影响之外,芯片供应紧张所导致的车企产量数据下滑,亦是车企股价普跌的重要原因。长城汽车曾在今年中报中表示,“芯片供应问题对企业生产的影响依然较为突出,原材料价格大幅上涨进一步加大企业成本压力”。以长城汽车为例,数据显示,长城汽车8月份总产量为73134辆,较去年同期下降16.86%,当月销量为74257辆,同比下降16.98%。广汽集团、江淮汽车8月的产销数据也有同比超过25%的跌幅。不过,乘联会秘书长崔东树近期表示,“相信9月的芯片供给改善总体不佳,但10月开始应该明显改善,国内外四季度车市还是比较乐观的”。不同于其他汽车股普跌或微涨情况,北汽蓝谷在9月份一枝独秀,当月涨幅达到20.57%,截至9月30日收盘,其股价为14.71元/股,总市值为629亿元。消息面上,孟晚舟回国事件引爆A股华为概念。9月26日,北汽蓝谷(600733.SH)发布公告称,子公司北汽新能源与华为签署全面业务深化合作协议,共同打造“ARCFOX”和“HI”联合品牌。双方就营销渠道共享制定细化方案并实施,计划于今年年底前实现极狐阿尔法S(HI版)的线上线下渠道销售合作。此次深化合作或标志着北汽蓝谷与华为之间的关系更上一层楼,其股价表现或在未来有更好表现。值得一提的是,自今年4月份以来,食得华为汽车概念头啖汤的小康股份已经实现股价翻倍,而北汽蓝谷的股价则在5月份触及高点,随后一路下跌,近期在上述消息刺激下略有回升。特斯拉一枝独秀吉利跑到雷军老家造手机港美股方面,9月汽车股清一色下跌,仅特斯拉区间股价有所上涨。其中,港股方面,6只汽车股总市值合共跌去1780.86亿港元。图片来源:pixabay.com具体来看,恒大汽车大幅领跌港股汽车股,月跌幅近50%,总市值缩水284.28亿元,截至9月30日,其总市值仅剩295.02亿港元。而今年3月末,恒大汽车市值(4682亿元人民币)甚至超越美股上市的蔚来(4019亿元人民币),以24.06亿元市值之差落后于国内“汽车股一哥”比亚迪。有业界人士对时代财经称,恒大集团的财务问题一定程度波及了其汽车板块,随后,恒大汽车回A计划折戟也带来利空,进一步影响了恒大汽车近期股价表现。消息面上,9月26日,恒大汽车发布公告称,经慎重考虑后,公司与海通证券股份有限公司双方同意终止上市辅导协议,并将会向中国证券监督管理委员会深圳监管局报告。因此,建议发行人民币股份将不再继续进行。而这距离其去年9月宣布寻求科创板上市不过一年时间。吉利汽车9月股价跌幅也较大,达20.46%,总市值缩水564.68亿港元。不过,吉利当月动作频频,资本市场层面,其与沃尔沃共同打造的高端电动车品牌极星,9月27日晚宣布拟与美国特殊目的收购公司(SPAC)Gores Guggenheim进行合并上市,合并后企业估值约为200亿美元,该交易预计于明年上半年完成。同时,据外媒报道,吉利汽车控股集团将在几周内启动沃尔沃汽车IPO,此次IPO的目标是在斯德哥尔摩上市,估值约200亿美元,9月底有望完成。此次IPO由高盛和SEB牵头,包括法国巴黎银行、卡内基银行和汇丰银行参与交易。不过,该消息暂未获沃尔沃和吉利控股集团方面置评。此外,“汽车狂人”李书福的多元化布局拓展至手机业务。9月28日,由李书福创办的湖北星纪时代科技有限公司与武汉经济技术开发区签署战略合作协议,正式宣布进军手机领域。对此,不少网友纷纷调侃,“跑到雷军老家造吉利手机,抢饭碗毫不留情,后院点火谁不会”?至于美股方面,截至北京时间9月30日,美股5只汽车股仅特斯拉当月股价有所上涨,其余包括小鹏汽车、理想汽车、蔚来和法拉第未来均呈现不同程度的跌幅。值得一提的是,受股价攀升等因素影响,9月29日,特斯拉CEO马斯克重返世界首富,成为继贝索斯、阿尔诺后,第三位身价达到2000亿美元的富豪。据福布斯实时富豪榜数据显示,截至9月30日晚,马斯克身价达2011亿美元。“对于美国本土新能源车特斯拉来说,特斯拉近期出现上涨主要是因为今年上半年下跌较多,所以近期容易出现超跌反弹,而且从最近一期的财报来看,特斯拉盈利水平较为强劲;但是由于去年特斯拉涨幅太大,今年要出现类似去年涨幅的可能性较小。”王一棠对时代财经称。
