BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Smoke Reports is now Cannabis Reports in support of their new technology platform available to all cannabis enterprises, technology companies, and a more educated cannabis consumer. "With our technology and website helping others to define and identify the way we can talk about cannabis, not just strains and reviews, we knew the timing was right," says Cannabis Reports Founder & CEO, David Drake. "We also feel it helps in conveying respect for its agricultural heritage, and legitimacy for its usefulness in medical capacities."

Beginning in 2008, Mr. Drake researched and built tools for tracking the family tree of cannabis strains with a technology project called Smoke Reports. In 2014, Drake went to market with the startup now known as Cannabis Reports to support the emerging and quickly growing cannabis marketplace. The company has experienced phenomenal growth and acquired international interest. The platform has grown from servicing San Francisco to all of California and Oregon. Companies as far away as the Czech Republic, Amsterdam & Jamaica have lined up to join Cannabis Reports.

Last year at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition in Los Angeles, Cannabis Reports garnered much praise and attention from notables in the industry. Singer/songwriter and pro-cannabis activist Melissa Etheridge was impressed with the Cannabis Reports platform when she met with Mr. Drake and aligned with the popular published whitepaper, "Reefer, Pot, Weed, Grass and Marijuana: It's Time We Call It Cannabis." In her keynote address at the event she called Cannabis Reports "an amazing cannabis resource and database."

Cannabis Reports released a powerful open API (application programming interface) in August of last year, providing open access to an ever-growing database of over 25,000 cannabis strains, extracts, edibles, products, seed companies, retailers and producers. Since then, hundreds of companies, like Hashman Infused, have successfully used the platform to release their newly branded cannabis-infused products. Additionally, they have utilized the Cannabis Reports API, empowering their own websites to help grow their business. "We are thrilled to be providing the cannabis community with improved information," says Mr. Drake, "and are proud to have created the largest database of organized cannabis products and providers in the industry."

Their mission of "working hard to improve the relationship between cannabis and human beings through education, outreach, and technology" has created unique partnerships in the community. This month they will support Green Flower Media to help promote the Cannabis Health Summit, a free online event featuring 20+ of the world's top doctors, scientists, and leaders taking place online January 23-24, 2016.

Cannabis Reports recently completed a $1M round of funding and is currently exploring a Series A capitalization.
