We sat down with Timeka of Green Coyote Collective in Palm Springs 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 California.
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 Green Coyote cannabis delivery service?
Green Coyote Collective was established in 2015 to provide an alternative to the traditional dispensary model, allowing our patients to obtain their medicine in the most safe and comfortable environment possible. Green Coyote Collective is committed to patient advocacy, following the best legal practices and exploring industry innovations to provide the best experience for our members. Our founders have decades of combined experience in the medical cannabis industry and only provide the top-quality medical cannabis for our patients.
What makes Green Coyote stand out from other cannabis collectives?
Green Coyote Collective makes the process of choosing medical cannabis easy for our patients – we curate only the best, top-quality medication so our patients can trust what they are choosing. From top-quality flower, to the best edibles, concentrates and more, Green Coyote Collective delivers quality-tested products straight to our patient’s doors.
Most delivery services in California are just dispensaries on wheels. Green Coyote is taking a different approach – by reducing our menu choices, taking a more hands on role in curating the highest quality medicine, and identifying our member’s needs, we build a more engaged relationship with our patients. We take the idea of a ‘collective’ very seriously and see its role as a collaborative one. Bringing together years of experience working with patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, neuropathic pain, insomnia, arthritis and many conditions for which cannabis can provide profound relief, we are always available to answer questions, source information, and work to find solutions to our patient’s concerns
What are some of your staff’s and patients’ favorite products?
The Oaktown Crippler (hybrid) Strain is a staff and patient favorite because of it’s high THC content, amazing flavor and euphoric effect. This super-star strain is known for offering relaxation, happiness and euphoria, and is used to treat everything from pain to stress to insomnia. This sweet and earthy Hybrid never disappoints.
Our Bumblebee Vape Pen is a new way to discreetly vaporize with a disposable pen that you throw away after 400 hits.Each pen is packed with 1000mg of its specified strain, there’s no charging necessary, and no hassle in dealing with cartridges that sometimes leak! Bumblebee provides a better, safer and healthier medical cannabis vaporizer experience. Discreet style with potency that most discerning palette will enjoy for a lifetime. Bumblebee is an instant classic.
Hint: Read Nugg’s post on the best vape cartridges before you make a purchase decision!
On the edible side, we have two favorites. First is our KIVA Terra Bites, which come in two flavors – Espresso and Blueberry. Each bite is exactly 5mg of medicine, making it easy to utilize the correct dose every time. In fact, Blueberry Terra Bites are the newest innovation in our line of best-selling Terra Bites. Using a traditional 24-hour panning process, dried US-grown blueberries are dusted with cocoa powder, coated in white chocolate, then dusted with raspberry and blueberry powder. Finished with a generous coating of Kiva milk chocolate, each 5MG bite is polished to sweet, tart, irresistible, perfection.
Next is the Trokie Lozenge — a unique way to medicate with a 25mg lozenge that dissolves in your mouth for a rapid delivery of medicine through your oral tissue. Each lozenge is able to be cut into four pieces for easy dosing. The Trokie is designed to slowly dissolve between the cheek and gum, utilizing the Buccal Absorption delivery method. Buccal absorption is similar to sublingual in that the goal is maximize oral absorption, bypassing the First Pass Effect of metabolism (metabolized by the liver) that occurs during digestion. By Avoiding the GI Tract and the liver, the Trokie delivers a Quick onset of medicinal effects.

How can new patients become a member of your collective and order delivery?
If patients are approaching us online, I’d recommend just signing up with Nugg. It’s quick and easy, and your documentation 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.
Can we find you at upcoming events…and any final thoughts?
We make announcements on our Twitter page about events & meetups we’ll be attending!
