Has expanded its business directoryto include seven new categories of industry services. The directory focuses on companies that provide B2B services to cannabusinesses, as opposed to medical cannabis dispensaries or retail recreational shops that target actual cannabis consumers.
New categories have been added to include investment groups who support start-up marijuana businesses, political organizations who advocate on behalf of legalization and drug policy reform, and trade associations who work to educate and organize business owners. There are also now sections of the directory dedicated to cannabis testing labs who test for contaminants and potency in samples from state-licensed growers or producers — and to laboratories that offer premium hash and cannabis oil extraction services. Providers of commercial grow lights, seeds and soil, and other equipment used for both indoor and outdoor agriculture can also create business listings. Finally, the directory has added categories for marijuana industry job boards as well as publishers who report on marijuana news and culture.
Ganjapreneur’s business directory was launched in 2014 in an effort to help professionals, investors, and entrepreneurs connect with service providers who specialize in the cannabis industry. Since then, businesses have been able to add a listing for free as part of a limited-time offer. Currently, a listing displays the company’s name, location, a brief description, a link to the company’s website, and contact information such as an email address, phone number, and various social media accounts. There will be options available soon for an upgraded registration.
Ganjapreneur launched in July 2014 and has since established a significant presence in the cannabis business world. The website regularly publishes interviews and commentary from leading minds in the industry, and has also launched a B2B business directory, a live feed of job listings from marijuana job boards, a domain name marketplace for start-ups and venture capital firms, and a mobile app for Apple and Android devices which aggregates daily cannabis industry news, business profiles, and other information.
