CALIFORNIA: Smoke Reports has released the most powerful open cannabis API (application programming interface), providing access to an ever-growing list of over 16,000 strains, extracts, edibles, products, producers, seed companies, and dispensaries. “We are thrilled to be providing the cannabis community with improved information technology,” says David Drake, Founder & CEO of Smoke Reports.
“We believe information can be one of the most powerful forces in ensuring an open and free industry where everyone can thrive on an equal playing field,” continues Drake. “That’s why we’re offering an API to let our cannabis community build upon the years of work we’ve done to catalogue and organize this fast evolving industry.”
The Smoke Reports API can be used by other cannabis businesses to power their own apps, websites, and internal business tools. Businesses using the API can automatically update content displayed on their online platforms, with access to the world’s largest cannabis database at SmokeReports.com.
The best way to outline the power of the API is to examine the many ways in which Smoke Reports tracks cannabis. “We do this using our UCPC – Universal Cannabis Product Code system that we created and designed specifically for the cannabis industry. Adopting the UCPC allows cannabis companies to identify the genetic origin and production details for every single item they add to the Smoke Reports database,” says Drake.
