Weedmaps in the News

By WM Communications Team 

August was a big month at Weedmaps. We announced our Q2 earnings for $MAPS, announced our reconfigured Weedmaps for Business platform, and our CEO, Chris Beals, was featured in a number of outlets. Here are a few of the highlights: 

  • In early August, our Weedmaps for Business announcement generated a lot of coverage, including TechCrunch who wrote a feature story to break the news. 
  • Weedmaps has been named a finalist for the 2022 PR News Platinum Awards for our “Brock Ollie Campaign” in two categories - “Campaign of the Year” and “Integrated Communications, Marketing and PR.” The winner will be announced in October at a ceremony in NYC. 
  • Weedmaps CEO Chris Beals was the featured guest on MJ Biz Daily’s Seed to CEO podcast. On the episode Beals spoke with Chris Walsh, CEO of MJ Biz, about his early days at Weedmaps, and how the company has changed and expanded in recent years. 
  • In late August, Chris was an in-studio guest on Yahoo! Finance to talk about the Weedmaps marketplace, Weedmaps for Business, and what’s on the horizon for cannabis legalization. 
  • Chris was also the cover story for the August issue of mg Retailer Magazine. In the article titled, “Growing Like a High-Tech Weed,” Chris spoke to author Danny Reed about going public via SPAC, the future vision for Weedmaps, and what to expect from the ever-changing cannabis industry post-2022. 
  • Lastly, a Q&A with Chris  was featured in Prohibition Partner's latest North American Cannabis Report, starting on PDF page 42 (document page 71).
