Newport Beach, California – October 19, 2011– General Cannabis, Inc. (OTCBB: CANA), a technology-based Internet marketing services company, today announced the launch of a new international grow shop directory website GrowShops.com. General Cannabis is currently applying technology from WeedMaps.com to the GrowShops.com platform and is in discussions to license the GrowShops.com URL and website throughout Europe.
General Cannabis commenced beta testing for its new website GrowShops.com on October 7th, 2011. GrowShops.com is designed to be an international grow shop and hydroponic store finder site, similar to General Cannabis’ successful US-based website WeedMaps.com. The site features a comprehensive database allowing gardening and hydroponic businesses to increase online exposure by applying upgrades and features such as Business Pro listings to increase web traffic for proprietors that own multiple grow shop businesses. GrowShops.com helps listed businesses increase customer interaction by enabling registered customers to write reviews for and rank each business according to their personal experiences. GrowShops.com is currently accessible in the United States, Canada, Australia, and select European countries and regions such as Germany, the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Spain and is available in six different languages.
“We are excited to expand our brand internationally by applying the success of the WeedMaps.com platform and technology to GrowShops.com,” said Justin Hartfield, Chief Web Officer of WeedMaps. “GrowShops.com’s streamlined design and innovative platform appeals to users in multiple countries and will play an integral role in connecting the continually expanding indoor growing community. We’re especially proud to offer support for six different languages in out beta and hope to expand to ten as the site’s presence increases.”
