Silicon Valley is definitely warming to the idea of cannabis. Major interest from tech giants like Microsoft talking seed-to-sale cloud software and a former Facebook founder’s sizable backing of a legalization effort in California are all just the tip of the iceberg for new high-tech money pouring into marijuana.

And now reports from Eaze – the San Francisco-based company that helps users access medical marijuana quickly and securely via a network of professional providers – is announcing the completion of a $13 million Series-B financing round. The recent funding makes Eaze the fastest growing and most funded cannabis technology company in the world with more than $25 million in overall capital investment.

“This is a critical time for the marijuana industry,” says Eaze CEO Keith McCarty, who notes that adult use of cannabis is on the precipice of becoming legal in California, the nation’s largest legal marijuana market. “Eaze is setting a new standard for accessibility, safety and professionalism, which makes it best positioned to educate and service the future market.”
