SEATTLE, May 15, 2019 (Newswire.com) - One Web Services Inc. (“OWS”), the owner and operator of the cannabis price comparison website Wikileaf.com, is pleased to launch a new mobile and web application. This improved platform will further assist cannabis consumers to find location-based pricing information about individual marijuana strains, brands and products – at the critical moment when they are deciding where to spend their money.
With over 1.6 million monthly visits tied to specific geographical locations, the new site will enable dispensaries and cannabis brands to use Wikileaf’s free digital listing services to further engage with consumers, through targeted advertising to cannabis users in their immediate area. Brands can use Wikileaf to promote their unique products, strains and services, as well as amplify their visibility and reach.
Wikileaf consumers are looking to make convenient, price-conscious decisions, without sacrificing safety. Wikileaf only operates in jurisdictions where cannabis is legal and lists only licensed dispensaries. With over 3,500 legal recreational and medical dispensaries listed across the U.S. and Canada, Wikileaf.com is the easiest and most efficient platform to find a cannabis store near a consumer’s location.

- Over 3,500 licensed dispensaries (U.S. and Canada)
- Over 229,000 strains and products prices compared (as of May 2019)

"Ever since starting Wikileaf, we were committed to making regular upgrades to the app, but today, we are announcing a full reboot. As a user of the Wikileaf app myself, I am truly excited about our v.6 launch and believe cannabis consumers will see real improvements to their user experience. Version 6 gives us an opportunity to show we continue to evolve, that we are listening to our growing customer and partner base, and that we are committed to being the leading cannabis price comparison website in North America.”
-Dan Nelson, Founder and CEO, Wikileaf
“With this update, Wikileaf remains committed to its roots. We continue to aspire to be the place cannabis consumers come to find and interact with local dispensaries and brands, and to learn about and find the best prices for their desired cannabis strains and products. But we also want to do more; we want to be a trusted source of information for both cannabis consumers and our partners. And we are seeing an added advantage for our partners, with millions of inquiries on our platform that are tied to specific geographical locations, we are able to provide an understanding of local customer habits trends that will help inform their inventory purchasing, product stocking and strain, and cultivation decisions, which in turn will help them better serve consumers.”
