Lantern Reports 350% Growth in 2021, Expands Partners in Massachusetts

BOSTON, Jan. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Lantern, among the leading on-demand cannabis e-commerce marketplace and home delivery platforms in the U.S., today announced its financial and operational results for fiscal year 2021, ending 12/31/21.

Lantern experienced 350% year-over-year growth following the expansion of its on-demand marketplace delivery platform into Colorado and Michigan, two of the fastest-growing cannabis delivery markets in the U.S. Additionally in July 2021, Lantern became the first adult-use delivery platform to launch in Massachusetts and serve the Greater Boston area.

Since then, the company has secured partnerships with numerous local dispensaries and couriers, including Sanctuary, Cultivate, Freshly Baked, NETA, Garden Remedies, Insa, and Theory Wellness. In Michigan, where Lantern was first-to-market in both Detroit and Grand Rapids, the company has partnered with leading dispensaries such as High Profile, and Joyology over the past year.

"Lantern's record year of growth is a bellwether for the enormous potential of the cannabis delivery market -especially considering how consumer adoption of delivery services increased by 25% throughout the country," said Meredith Mahoney, Co-Founder and CEO of Lantern. "Our team is eager to leverage our current momentum and foster deeper relationships with additional local partners to bring accessible and personalized cannabis retail experiences to an ever wider audience in the upcoming year."
