New Social Marketplace Weedable Takes Cannabis Commerce to a Higher Level

WINTER PARK, Fla., May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Pot. Reefer. Grass. Mary Jane. No matter what people call it, they can now sell it, find it, review it, and share its attributes like never before. More than a map, new social marketplace Weedable goes beyond providing an online dispensary directory to connect cannabis enthusiasts to stores, strains, products – and for the first time – each other. A social marketplace like no other, Weedable provides a dynamic and informative meeting place for those engaged in the legalized medical and recreational marijuana industries.

"Until now, cannabis patients and enthusiasts were limited online to strictly finding nearby dispensaries and their products. Weedable presents the first platform of its kind that allows businesses and consumers to not only connect, but to also interact and share," said Robert Sirianni, Jr., Founder and CEO of Weedable. "Weedable is more than a directory to dispensaries. It's the only platform encouraging dialogue in one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S."

Dispensaries can set up storefronts featuring THC products such as strains, edibles, concentrates, topicals, and seeds, highlighting THC and CBD levels as well as attributes such as effects, flavor, and medicinal properties. Businesses can also feature non-THC products like pipes, papers, fashion, and other accessories.

For consumers, Weedable features a robust store locator system where users can sort, filter, and find dispensaries and deals near their location. Consumers can also create public or private social profiles, follow their favorite vendors, and follow other users. Both businesses and consumers can share pictures, videos, and reviews, plus re-blog content posted by other cannabis patients, consumers, and businesses around the world.

"Consumers drive quality, prices, and demand by interacting with industry businesses," said Sirianni. "By providing the platform for interaction, Weedable will be integral in fueling both industry and social change. As businesses showcase services and products – and learn more about their consumers – quality will improve, pricing will stabilize, and the industry will obtain economic and social legitimacy."

Weedable offers businesses three product uploads at no charge and affordable product plans for storefronts with multiple offerings. In addition, Weedable offers numerous advertising opportunities for vendors, including geo-targeted ads, boosted blogs, display ads and social profile advertising.

"Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram do not allow advertising for cannabis companies or related businesses," said Sirianni. "The advertising opportunities offered by Weedable allow dispensaries to fill a marketing void in the industry, and with the ability to geo-target ads and products to certain states, cities or zip codes, Weedable ensures industry advertisers are in compliance with local and state laws. As more states legalize marijuana, Weedable will be critical to the success of new dispensaries."

Taking cannabis commerce to the next level, the Weedable universe is comprised of the Weedable social network, the Weedablestore, the Weedable LIVE product locater, the Potamus payment gateway – the first platform of its kind allowing credit and debit card payments for cannabis advertising – and coming soon, the Weedable APP.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...

This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
Everywhere we turn in our industry we can find strong opinions about the direction, type and nature of cloud’s impact on computing and business.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
