Ganjapreneur, an online business resource dedicated to the cannabis industry, has expanded its business directory to include seven new categories of industry services.
The directory focuses on companies that provide B2B services to cannabusinesses, as opposed to medical cannabis dispensaries or retail recreational shops that target actual cannabis consumers.
New categories have been added to include investment groups who support start-up marijuana businesses, political organizations who advocate on behalf of legalization and drug policy reform, and trade associations who work to educate and organize business owners. There are also now sections of the directory dedicated to cannabis testing labs who test for contaminants and potency in samples from state-licensed growers or producers — and to laboratories that offer premium hash and cannabis oil extraction services.
Providers of commercial grow lights, seeds and soil, and other equipment used for both indoor and outdoor agriculture can also create business listings. Finally, the directory has added categories for marijuana industry job boards as well as publishers who report on marijuana news and culture.
Ganjapreneur's business directory was launched in 2014 in an effort to help professionals, investors, and entrepreneurs connect with service providers who specialize in the cannabis industry. Since then, businesses have been able to add a listing for free as part of a limited-time offer.
