With New Years just days away and 2017 in our rear view mirror, it’s a great time to take a look at some of the trends and successes of the cannabis industry in recent months as well as a look ahead at what’s to come in 2018. Just today, Ackrell Capital released their 2018 Cannabis Investment Report, calling out a list of the “Top 100 Private Cannabis Companies 2018.” Weedguide is proud to be included in this year’s list and honored to be among such a variety of innovative companies helping shape the cannabis landscape.

As California prepares to become the largest recreational cannabis market with the new recreational law going into effect in January, it’s no surprise that a number of these top cannabis companies are based in southern California, including Weedguide.

Others include Brewbudz – cannabis-infused beverage pods, Dosist – mood targeted cannabis vaporizers, PRØHBTD Media – digial media, Spectrum King – LED grow lights and accessories, VCC Brands – cannabis infused products, and Web Joint – a point-of-sale software service.

Together, Weedguide, these top cannabis brands, and hundreds more, hope to support an industry that is anticipated to ultimately exceed $100 billion annually.
