Convenience Drives WeedMaps App

Brittney Barrett |

General CannabisConvenience can be relied upon to help make decisions ranging from what restaurant to dine in to what mall to shop in. In a world where options become ever more plentiful, convenience is becoming more important than ever.



Medicinal cannabis is no exception. More and more states have begun legalizing the medicinal use of marijuana. This, in turn, has prompted an increase in businesses looking to profit from the recession-proof  medicinal cannabis model. The bevy of new locations increases competition among purveyors and makes it difficult for users to select the dispensary that's right for them. That is why WeedMaps Media, a fully owned subsidiary of Internet marketing services company, General Cannabis Inc. (CANA) has announced the debut of their Android application. The application, which is exclusively for Amazon, provides locations for local dispensaries and doctors, links to videos and discussions with other users as well as listings for coupons and mobile freebies.

By giving users information on factors like geographic convenience, freebies and giveaways, dispensaries and doctors are able to compete in the same way a restaurant with a prime location or a great happy hour may be able to. The mobile edge has dispensaries and doctors doing their best to stay competitive and be recognized by WeedMaps, while the availability of data, that users have a proven interest in is likely to drive even more traffic. Couple this alongside interactive features like giveaways and both users and dispensaries are engaged, driving continued profits for WeedMaps.

With comprehensive mobile device compatibility, the new version of the WeedMaps application is compatible with phones running the oldest and newest versions of the Android operating system. The entire application has been re-engineered to Google's specifications and is significantly faster than previous platforms and versions, increasing convenience and prolonging interaction. The app offers secure networking for the full protection of users' personal information as well.
