TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - Aug 16, 2017) - First Harvest Corp. (OTCQB: HVST) (the "Company" or "First Harvest"), a technology, media and mobile gaming platform with a focus on the cannabis industry, announced today its monetizing beta version launch of Ufly420. The enabling connectivity technology platform is similar to an UberEATS-style delivery app, providing on-demand legal cannabis delivery. The Company anticipates full commercialization launch of the app in California on is targeted for October 1 in California, 2017.
The Ufly420 app was internally developed over the past year and will be available on both the iPhone and Android operating systems by October 1, 2017 for use in the state of California. Ufly420's proprietary technology platform bridges the gap between patients and dispensaries, and utilizes the dispensaries' existing network of approved drivers to deliver legal cannabis. The app allows cannabis users to search for specific cannabis strains, then pings /locates the closest dispensary. The technology platform is logistics-based and provides for improved connectivity to better enable deliveries between dispensaries and cannabis users.
The Ufly420 business model allows for legal dispensaries and delivery services to upload and include their menus for free. The revenue model includes a small transaction fee paid by the dispensary and the customer. The initial rollout of the app will take place in California; however, management intends to target all legal states which have legalized cannabis as well as Canada and other countries as potential launch targets.
