Imagine Yelp, but for marijuana; Apple approves cannabis app, BlazeNow, for finding and rating local dispensaries

On July 27, Apple approved a new cannabis app called Blaze Now, on which users can find and rate local dispensaries. Imagine Yelp, but for marijuana.

As the cannabis industry gains momentum, Blaze Now—founded by dispensary owners, for dispensary owners—intends to go even further than dispensary location, however: they want to be the first platform for mainstream advertisers, providing them with a go-to media outlet.

The homepage of the Blaze Now website reads like an online magazine, allowing visitors to scroll through articles like “How to Make Cannabis-Infused Butter” and “7 Celebrities Looking to Cash in on the Cannabis Industry’s ‘Green Rush’.”
