Patient to Patient Medical Marijuana Delivery Service [INTERVIEW]
Nugg Team | March 26, 2016 | 1 Comment
We sat down with James of Patient to Patient in Sacramento to take an in-depth look into their medical marijuana delivery service. What follows is a one-on-one interview that offers a behind-the-scenes look at what this cannabis collective has to offer patients in Sacramento, CA.
The Nugg team is dedicated to finding and making public the most relevant, accurate, and up-to-date information on cannabis dispensaries throughout California (and ultimately beyond). Let’s dive in.
When and why did you start the Patient to Patient cannabis delivery service?
We fired up back in the beginning of 2010.
When we first got going, very few other delivery services were available in the greater Sacramento area. At the time, not even one of the others had a fully stocked menu that was comparable to those of walk-in storefront dispensaries. We asked ourselves, “why don’t delivery services offer comparable prices and product selection compared to their storefront counterparts?”
After all, cannabis delivery services don’t have the same overhead costs that regular walk-in dispensaries have. There’s much lower rent payments, no utility bills associated with growing cannabis on-site, and fewer employees on-staff. So why are delivery prices still so high? Why don’t they carry savings on overhead over to the patients?
That’s where we saw an opportunity. An opportunity to provide a door-to-door service with better prices and better selection. Even as we see many fly-by-night delivery services and dispensaries open and close their doors around us, we still focus on providing the same quality service, with quality prices every single day, 365 days a year.
What makes Patient to Patient stand out from other cannabis collectives?
I’d say it’s a combination of things. First, we’re open 7 days a week, including holidays 9am-9pm. Also, we specialize in COMPASSION and love helping handicapped or disabled patients get the medicine they need. Granted, we don’t only serve elderly patients, but they really make the job worthwhile. We’re really all about helping anyone who has a physical ailment or debilitating condition find the right products for their needs, so they can lead a normal and productive lifestyle.
Next, our selection is top-notch and even larger than that of many local storefront dispensaries. Our items are priced at a discount compared to our counterparts, and our 30-60 minute delivery time (a smile is always included) is one of the best in the biz.
Finally, we offer free bedside delivery to all sick or immobile patients (part of bringing compassion to Sacramento). We offer a free 1.5 gram raw, cone, top-shelf pre-roll for first time patients, and include a free lighter, bottle water, Med-edible, or other promotional item with every order!
What are some of your staff’s and patients’ favorite products?
- Guild Extracts THCa is a favorite of our director James. It’s quite an interesting product, many patients aren’t even aware such a thing exists.
Guild Extracts uses hyper-modern chemistry (molecular isolation if we’re talking specifics) to produce a 99.677 percent THCa product. Now, what exactly is THCa? It’s actually a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and is drastically different than THC. As marijuana dries (or is heated), THCa converts to THC, so taking a dab of Guild Extracts THCa is like taking five. What’s most curious though, is that THCa has no terpene profile, and you don’t actually get high from smoking it. Wait, what? That’s right, you don’t get high, unless you throw some high terpene extract (also available by Guild Extracts), which unlocks the full strength of THCa and produces an insanely clean and focused cerebral high, so much that it takes on a body high of its own.

2. Girl Scout Cookies, an ever-popular hybrid strain has been a hit with patients since the first day it’s been on our shelves. It’s a cross between OG Kush and Durban Poison hybrid, gives off a sweet and earthy aroma, and produces euphoric effects in patients, followed by full-body relaxation. It’s a great strain for treating pain, nausea, and appetite loss.
Do you offer any deals for patients?

Where does Patient to Patient deliver to, and what’s your average delivery time?
We delivery to all to the greater Sacramento Valley and Davis area, as well as surrounding areas. Our average delivery time is anywhere from 30-45 minutes, and almost always within an hour!
What are your hours of operations?
We’re open 7 days a week from 9:00am – 9:00pm.
How can new patients become a member of your collective and order delivery?
Well, there’s a couple options. Patients can visit our website, but it’s currently under construction so for now that option isn’t available.
If patients are approaching us online, I’d recommend just signing up with Nugg. It’s quick and easy, and your documentation (doctor’s recommendation and ID) becomes available to us once you place your first order.
If any patient does not have a doctor’s recommendation for medical cannabis, or needs to get theirs renewed, by-far the most convenient option is to video-chat with a doctor through NuggMD. You just visit their website, click a button to begin your evaluation, and you’re face-to-face with a licensed CA doctor in minutes. Once you’re approved (which usually only takes 5-10 minutes), you receive an instant electronic version of your doctor’s recommendation, which can be used to order instantly from our menu on Nugg! Plus, you’ll get a physical copy of your recommendation in the mail 2-3 days later which you can use to get access to our storefront dispensary.
Do you have any personal stories or reviews from patients you can share with us?
If I were to share a general consensus from our patients on our collective and service, I’d say our friendly and knowledgable staff make the biggest difference, and our massive menu and selection of daily deals keep patients coming back.
But we really do love checking out the reviews we get online (and responding to them, of course!). I recently got one from a patient that read —
“This is hands down one of the best cannabis dispensaries in SAC, delivery or storefront. The staff is incredibly personable and caring. I once had bank issues and the delivery driver gave me a lift to the bank so I wouldn’t have to delay my order or walk 9 blocks each way. The prices are compassionate (at least the concentrates are), and quality is definitely there. Love these guys, they’re my new go-to.”
And we constantly get accolades for our fast delivery times!
Can we find you at upcoming events…and any final thoughts?
Does Patient to Patient offer online ordering?
