THANKS FOR VISITING THE PINEAPPLE!
I'm Tim and I started THE PINEAPPLE® in October 2019 with the hope of supplying New Zealand with high quality vaporisers and other accessories. THE PINEAPPLE® is currently operating as an online store and shipping products from Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty. This allows us to ship to you quickly while also allowing us to enjoy the sunshine at the Mount after packing your orders.
PROVIDING ANOTHER CHOICE
After first trying dry herb vaping I realised that this was the future. There are so many benefits in vaporising rather than smoking dry herb and I wanted my similarly minded friends to know. Surprisingly, when I talked about it with them most didn't know it was possible or had not been impressed when they had tried it. That was until I gave them a turn on my first vape.
I realised that most people were using inferior products for their first dry herb vaping experience and I wanted to change their view. After showing friends vapes from my ever growing collection like the DynaVap M and the S&B Mighty, more and more were keen to own one of their own but seemed to be put off by the fact they needed to be ordered from overseas. I have to admit this was a concern for me too.
SHIPPING FROM WITHIN NEW ZEALAND
I knew that if I could eliminate the risk of their vape being seized by customs and shipped products from within New Zealand more people could enjoy the benefits of vaping. While it has not been an easy task of getting product into New Zealand I am proud to say that all stock currently available on our website is shipped directly from Tauranga and not via a drop-shipping service like some of our competitors.
We source our products direct from the suppliers of top brands of vaporisers and grinders from Canada, Germany, and USA. Our range is currently growing and we hope to be able to provide more and more products as we grow. I like to have confidence in all the products that we sell so try to test them before making them available on the website. If you think there is something we should be stocking, let us know and we will check it out.
GETTING READY FOR THE FUTURE
As of April 2020 medicinal cannabis use is legal within New Zealand. Full information about what consumers need to know can be found here. The NZ Government has agreed to hold a binding referendum at the September 2020 General Election to determine whether personal use of recreational cannabis should be legalised. I really believe that New Zealanders will make the right choice in undoing the harm prohibition has done to users by VOTING YES to legalise recreational cannabis use. Until that time we must ask that our customers only use legal and tested substances with our products.
Once it is legal however we plan to open a legal dispensary and store (THE PINEAPPLE®: Dispensary) with the goal of empowering growers within different communities throughout New Zealand. We will do this by creating an arm of our business (THE PINEAPPLE®: Collective) which will focus on helping growers navigate the complexities of becoming a legal operation and providing an avenue for them to sell their product. I think this will be a great opportunity for mum and dad growers to compete with some of the big players that are bound to pop up. If you or anyone you know is thinking about becoming a grower once recreational use is legal we would love to hear from you.
