On the Business to-Business side, Weedmaps also offers compliant technology solutions to cannabis business and brands through Weedmaps for Business, our suite of omnichannel advertising, marketing, operations and e-commerce tools, which can be found at weedmaps.com/ business.

Weedmaps’ mission is driven by our passion for the plant, with a goal of championing the truth about cannabis and standing with all who believe in open, safe and legal access to cannabis.

Weedmaps was founded in 2008 by two California Prop 215 medical marijuana patients who weren’t having any luck finding reliable, local information about cannabis products, or dispensaries.

Weedmaps launched as an online directory, similar to Yelp, with an easily accessible directory of medical dispensaries to guide fellow medical cannabis patients in their own research. As U.S. state medical programs began expanding, and the onset of adult-use cannabis moved forward both in the U.S. and Canada, Weedmaps expanded to support emerging markets, eventually growing into the two-sided marketplace we provide today. And now, Weedmaps employs approximately 500 people across the U.S. and Canada, with our headquarters in Irvine, CA.

We believe that our business is valuable to the cannabis community because trustworthy information on cannabis is still tough to find, and the continued stigma of the plant also brings misinformation, especially in newer adult-use markets. At Weedmaps, we see ourselves not just as a place to buy weed through our clients, but a place for consumers to get educated about cannabis products before they even step foot in a dispensary. Our Weedmaps News and Learn content also provides detailed, expert information on the latest consumption methods, as well as a host of how-to’s to support cannabis users regardless of if they’re beginners or expert level consumers.
