WHO WE ARE
MCEC is proud to be the first and largest Type M9, state sanctioned medical cannabis delivery service based in San Bernardino County. We transport medical cannabis, edibles, concentrates and cannabis-related products to legally registered patients in California. We are one of the most recognized medical cannabis companies in the region and pioneered the on-demand delivery service model. MCEC patients have the option of ordering via call-center, website and mobile app while tracking orders using real-time GPS. Our reputation and footprint continues to grow by adhering to the following fundamental business practices: Provide best of breed products, create an exceptional customer experience and make a positive impact in all the communities that we serve. Today, MCEC is considered one of the most trusted and recognized on-demand cannabis delivery services in Southern California.
THE ROAD TO LEGAL COMMERCIALIZATION
In the spring of 2016, we began a grass roots effort to help shape and build the commercialization of medical cannabis delivery services. Over the next 2 years, cannabis supporters, collective owners and legal representatives worked with the local municipality to craft sensible legislation. In November 2017, local legislation passed and a new era of cannabis commerce began in San Bernardino County.

From the beginning, we established a culture that we refer to as our founding principles: Work hard to help transform the lives of our patients, inspired by our patients. Collaborate as a team to ensure that knowledge and wisdom are shared for the benefit of all. Adhere to high ethical standards to be transparent, truthful, equitable & trustworthy.
