The Google for cannabis users is what leafbuyer.com has begun calling itself, and they certainly aren't alone in an ever growing industry.
"Right now Colorado is sitting around one and a half million and they're expecting to push up into the billions very quickly. It's something like fifty fold growth in the next five years," said LeafBuyer.com representative, Dillon Rice.
With numbers like that it's no wonder folks are jumping on the canabas bandwagon and coming up with new ideas and new ways to bring in the cash.
"These are business owners and they understand a bringing a platform to market which will help increase their revenue," said Erica Kennon of LeafBuyer.com.
"There's a million companies out there that are coming up with the latest vap pen, e-cigarette, canabas technology. Even to frozen take-n-bake marijuana pizzas," said Rice.
Which means staying ahead of the game is the key to success.
"As the industry grows we want to grow with it. We want to stay on top, and we really want to become the Google for cannabis," said Rice.
As with any industry supply and demand is what keeps the dollars flowing.
"On the consumer side it's just a searchable database so consumers can quickly and easily find what they're looking for," said Kennon.
The recreational marijuana goes through on Wednesday which is expected to propel the industry even farther into the green.
