GreenSTOP was conceived in December 2014 after Timothy Island had finally had it with the traditional cannabis dispensary experience. He constantly experienced long lines, inconsistent products and inconsistent customer service. Timothy thought there had to be a better way. That’s when he imagined GreenSTOP’s smart dispensary fully automated through hardware and software. He wanted to be able to consult with product experts but also purchase cannabis in seconds when he was in a rush. Timothy partnered up with James Edwards who has an extensive background in retail to bring their joined vision GreenSTOP into fruition. Together Timothy and James have created GreenSTOP’s fully integrated, self-service platform to revolutionize the legal cannabis retail space.
