Weedguide raises $1.7M and launches its AI-powered search platform

Weedguide, as the name implies, wants to be your go-to for everything cannabis-related, having released its search platform on Oct. 10, 2017, after securing $1.7M in seed funding

Weedguide’s CEO Claudio Cañive recognized the need for a dedicated weed search engine when Googling “weed” gets you 922 million results. He knew there had to be a better way to help medical and recreational users find the information they need. That’s when Weedguide was born.

The California-based company utilizes AI, machine learning, natural language processing, and cannabis experts to make sure you see only the most relevant results to your search queries. According to the company, what makes it different from other platforms is its proprietary crawler and classification system. But with a catchy slogan like “Take the strain out of your search…” you already know what Weedguide is about.

In addition to helping you answer all your cannabis-related searches and questions, Weedguide is a wealth of information on everything from Top Strains, How-to’s, dispensaries, and trending industry news, putting millions of articles and hundreds of thousands of strains and products at your fingertips. To make organizing and sorting your results even easier, Weedguide allows you to filter by result type, category, and state.

The mobile app is available on iOS and Android.
