DENVER, May 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CannLabs, Inc. (OTCQB: CANL), today announced the launch of 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, edits the site.
The new channel features content from StrainDataTM, a wholly owned 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.
"We are extremely excited to be working with The Cannabist to make the science of cannabis more accessible to consumers," said Genifer Murray, Founder, and President, of CannLabs, Inc. "As recreational users and medical patients become familiar with how cannabinoids produce specific effects, we believe a more informed consumer will enter the marketplace."
"Science and technology are going to lead the next wave of growth for the industry," continued Murray. "CannLabs has been at the forefront of consumer safety issues since its inception. With the StrainData and The Cannabist partnership we're able to bring relevant information to consumers in a way that informs and attracts a broader consumer base."
"…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 January 27th article in theCannabist.
The new science and technology section is located within the "News" tab 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.
