In the wake of their successful Southern Arizona Appreciation Party, the AllBud.com team has made a donation of $2,000 to support new research on the use of Medical Marijuana as a treatment for PTSD. On Wednesday, June 18th 2014, AllBud.com hosted patients,agents, doctors, cultivators, medical professionals and other supportive locals as a way to thank the Southern Arizona MMJ community for its help during the launch of the new site.
Kristin Winters, Vice President of AB Resources, LLC said, “Advancing medical marijuana research is extremely important to us as an active company within the industry, particularly since many members of our team, including myself, are patients. Scientific research will help doctors, patients and the broader community understand more about the amazing treatment potential of cannabis.”
The study, being conducted by Sue Sisley, M.D. through the University of Arizona, has an estimated research budget of $885,000 and was approved by the Federal Government, but has since been delayed from state funding due to government processes and political issues. “We are happy to make our contribution but realize that there is much more needed to fund the project. We have included a donation link to MAPS.org on Allbud.com for other members of the community to help out and we plan to make additional donations down the road,” added Kristin Winters.
According to MAPS.org, the study “will explore whether smoking or vaporizing marijuana can help reduce PTSD symptoms in 70 U.S. veterans with chronic, treatment-resistant post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Participants must be U.S. veterans, men or women, aged 18 or older with a diagnosis of PTSD that has not improved after trying either medication or psychotherapy.” Additional information is available at http://www.maps.org/research/mmj/
The AllBud.com team hopes to host additional, both in Arizona and across the country, to bring the medical marijuana communities together and help MMJ education efforts.

Legal marijuanaare notoriously plagued by problems of customer retention. A new mobile app from DispensaryMobile.com addresses this problem with a one of a kind solution.
Medical marijuana dispensaries almost universally are facing problems of high turnover customer loyalty and patient retention. The highly competitive field finds different dispensaries often engaged in price wars involving coupons, deep discounts and other tactics which make it easy for customers to jump fromto dispensary. Dispensary Mobile has approached this problem with a unique solution – a new iPhone and Android app that makes staying connected with customers, keeping their loyalty and increasing profits all much simpler and easy.
“The main way to keep customers from being lured away in our industry is to stay connected,” commented Nash Ryker, a partner in the company. “Our app offers all the perks and conveniences that consumers are looking for in a mobile app, such as a live menu and coupons, but without exposing your patients to all your competitor’s deals and ads every time they use it. Which is what’s happening on the popular mobile apps their using now, such as WeedMaps and Leafly.”
The mobile app makes delivering and redeeming exclusive mobile specials quick and easy in an innovative way designed to enhance the patient’s cannabis shopping experience. Since the service is offered as white-label, it will be branded uniquely to each dispensary and will save them the $15k+ it would normally cost to develop a similar app on their own.
In this ever-connected digital internet-age we live in, modern cannabis consumers expect mobile connectivity, and that’s exactly what the app provides. After all, a successful dispensary needs to think outside of the box to retain customers and keep them coming back over the long-term if they hope to prosper and be successful in a market that is sure to become more competitive as time goes on.
Demos are being offered at DispensaryMobile.com and so far the app has been quick to receive an enthusiastic response.
Tom J., from California recently said, “Our MMj collective andis in a very competitive area. Maybe the most competitive in our state if not the country. After looking into the Dispensary Mobile app I know this going to be hugely useful and will change the way our business model works for the better. I tip my hat to the developers for a job well done.”
