General Cannabis, Inc. (OTCPK: CANA), whose subsidiaries, include WeedMaps Media, Inc., General Health Solutions, Inc. and General Merchant Solutions, Inc. have relocated into a 21,000-plus square foot Class A office space in Newport Beach, CA in order to accommodate the company’s continued growth. General Cannabis specializes in the ancillary markets of the medicinal cannabis industry and has developed an impressive Internet presence with WeedMaps.com. The new office will encourage a continuation of that trajectory, allowing greater expansion within their technology and sales departments.
General Cannabis has been attracting attention for their innovative approach to the burgeoning industry of medicinal cannabis and it has been reflected in their growth. For the month of March, the company reported greater than $2,200,000 in total credit card processing volume, up from $1,700,000 of volume in February.
In November 2010, the founders of General Cannabis observed and sought to rectify the fragmented nature of the medicinal cannabis industry, particularly deficiencies in credit card processing. Since then they have gone on to create a multi-pronged approach to streamlining the medicinal cannabis business.
The company launched their General Health Solutions, the new CannaCare and CannaCare.com name, logo and website in early April. During the first quarter, the company revamped, updated and re-configured the software and platform, creating a scalable and multifaceted system. In addition, CannaCare has been designed to be the definitive education and medical portal for individuals seeking information about medicinal cannabis.
General Health Solutions increased the number of medical cannabis clinics under management to 14, up from 10 at the end of last year. All 14 clinics are located across California. The company anticipates managing and/or owning a total of 20 clinics by year end.
The new developments and growth demand a larger space for the company to operate and continue to expand.
