The Green Exchange, Inc. has launched the world's first online marijuana store. This innovative portal allows California dispensaries or collectives to view available cannabis inventory, connect with growers, make purchases direct from the farm, or place a bid via a unique online auction platform.
The Green Exchange is free to use, and there are no contracts, fees or obligations. Dispensary owners or managers are invited to visit the website and try it out.
The new system also provides an automatic social media notification, so when a dispensary obtains cannabis, a message can automatically be sent to the dispensary's Twitter and Facebook followers, notifying them that a new selection of cannabis is available.
In this regard, the website also functions as a sales and marketing tool that gets the word out to dispensary patients and potential patients – all free of charge.
The Green Exchange was developed by a group of cannabis industry veterans, who have been growing in Mendocino County for more than 10 years.
"We think it's important for everyone to know that we are not Wall Street outsiders or Silicon Valley Executives, looking to make a fast buck in the marijuana industry," said Joshua Artman, cofounder and CEO of The Green Exchange, Inc. "We get our hands dirty every day.
"We know how to grow a quality product," Artman said. "And now, through an innovative, web-based system, we are able to offer this product directly to dispensaries, with no middleman or markup."
