CannLabs, Inc. (OTCQB: CANL) today announced an agreement to create a custom content science channel on theCannabist.co, The Denver Post’s cannabis-focused news and culture website. Launched in December of 2013 to cover legalized marijuana in Colorado, The Cannabist features news, strain reviews, recipes, store maps and more about the state’s expanding marijuana industry. Ricardo Baca, the nation’s first major newspaper marijuana editor, oversees the site.
The channel will feature content from StrainDataTM, a newly launched web application developed by a subsidiary of CannLabs, Inc. CannLabs is the leading provider of scientific testing methodologies and cloud-based analytics for the cannabis industry. The custom content on the Cannabist will provide readers with objective, scientific views of the cannabis industry.
“The Denver Post’s Cannabist site and its targeted 400,000 unique monthly visitors and over 1.4 million page views will create a powerful online commercial engine for StrainData and its users,” said Mark Mirken, Chief Executive Officer, CannLabs, Inc.
“Fundamentally, we believe that we are an extension of the consumer protection framework created by the Colorado legislature,” continued Mirken. “StrainData allows consumers to access accurate testing data directly from CannLabs’ Denver laboratory. This relationship will provide thousands of Cannabist readers immediate access to scientific research and information from the most trusted source in the industry.”
“As legitimate marijuana research begins to ramp up in the coming decade, StrainData could possibly be positioned to lead that conversation,” said Ricardo Baca in a Jan. 27, 2015, article on theCannabist.co.
The new science and technology section will be located on the main navigation page of theCannabist. co. The content will focus on the science of cultivating cannabis, the impact of a well-regulated testing framework, new cannabinoid research and consumer safety issues.
The channel is expected to be fully operational on theCannabist.co by April 1, 2015.
CannLabs, Inc., is a respected authority and advisor to commercial, governmental and educational entities focused on the cannabis industry.
