Every day, business owners and operators, investors, business professionals, financial experts, regulators, lobbyists, government officials, journalists and more look for reliable and up-to-date information about the rapidly growing and changing marijuana industry. Now, they can get timely, accurate, and searchable data on over 10,000 marijuana licenses in the Cannabiz Media Database and the Cannabiz Media Directory.

The detailed data available in the Cannabiz Media Database and the Cannabiz Media Directory provide the information that marijuana industry stakeholders need to evaluate medical and recreational marijuana licenses, fully understand the opportunities and risks of the growing cannabis industry, compare programs state-by-state, and make critical business decisions. For example,

  • An investor can evaluate a marijuana license for potential investment.
  • A business can analyze marijuana license details in a new market for entry or expansion.
  • A regulator can compare his or her state’s licensing data to another.
  • A journalist can find accurate information for an upcoming story.

The Cannabiz Media Database and the Cannabiz Media Directory were built to focus on all aspects of marijuana licensing. Unlike other databases and directories that focus on narrow data sets with limited and sometimes outdated information, the Cannabiz Media Database and the Cannabiz Media Directory provide the most detailed and up-to-date information on the market.

All 27 states where medical and/or recreational marijuana have been legalized are included in the database, including: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington State. Cannabiz Media will add the states that just legalized marijuana as soon as they begin issuing licenses.
