What do we do?

The world's first technology solution to Bring transparency and consistency to legal cannabis through data and insights:
We empower producers to communicate their quality to sell more at higher prices
We enable retailers to rate their supply to make better purchasing decisions.
We help consumers understand product ingredients so they can buy with confidence.

We capture quality data on each batch of cannabis by giving free software to cannabis testing labs. Then, when growers get their lab tests back, they can unlock powerful insights about their products' quality and the general market.

Technical challenges

1) Each of our clients has different processes to gather and report their lab test data. We work with them to refine and integrate their current processes with our system.

2) Laws vary state by state. We abstract these laws so the system can enforce them and protect our users.

3) There is a lot of data about cannabis and not enough research about it. Analysis of the data is crucial to build a well-functioning legal industry.

4) Insights are being discovered in a daily basis. We show these insights to our clients in an easy-to-use way so the results can be understood.

5) With the data and the insights generated, we create models that advise our users to improve their products quality to sell more at higher prices.

Why join us?

1) Opportunity to shape the future of the legal cannabis industry.

2) Large and growing market: The legal cannabis market today is $3bn and is rapidly growing into the $50bn nationwide opportunity.
