Weedmaps was founded in 2008, right at the beginning of the boom of the cannabis industry in the United States. The company serves as the most comprehensive cannabis consumer platform. It is also a software builder that cannabis businesses can rely on for effective software specifically created with the industry and its regulations in mind. Weedmaps partners with subject-matter experts not only to deliver the most up to date website, but also to facilitate and provide thorough education and important information on cannabis.
Weedmaps’ signature product is its consumer-facing platform. The site is available on the web as well as through Android and iOS apps. The platform helps consumers find important information about cannabis products, order online, find local retailers, discover new products, and be sure of the history and legal status of cannabis products. The SaaS and data solutions for businesses that Weedmaps provides have been instrumental in bolstering and improving the industry both in terms of internal function and external acceptance. The technology product suite includes points of sale, logistics, wholesale, and ordering solutions. These services have allowed businesses to scale while following the often-complicated rules and regulations of the cannabis industry.
Weedmaps operates out of Irvine, California, but allows employees to work from anywhere. The 400-person team works from around the world in places like Denver, Tucson, New York, Barcelona, and Toronto. The work-from-anywhere structure has allowed employees to maintain great work/life balances. This balance is what allows the work at Weedmaps to be done effectively and efficiently, keeping up with and improving the ever-growing cannabis industry. Not only do employees enjoy the benefits of working from anywhere, they receive unique benefits and perks like coverage for family planning and fertility, student loans repayment, and not to mention curated snack boxes delivered straight to whatever door is the office door that day. Since its founding, Weedmaps has been a critical part of the cannabis industry on both the consumer and business side of things. Its Saas and leading consumer-facing platform have fostered a lively and exciting industry that has in turn begun to change cultural and political ideas surrounding cannabis.
