​​​​, which calls itself “the medical marijuana industry’s first and only cannabis-based search engine and advertising platform,” on Monday launched a Google Maps-type listing system for dispensaries, marijuana doctors, and smoke shops.

The new marijuana mapping system is the cannabis equivalent of Google Maps. When a user searches for dispensaries and collectives, doctors, lawyers, head shops or any other type of marijuana-related business, local business listings are displayed on a map based on the actual search criteria as well as the user’s IP address.
The search platform at now integrates sponsored listings from directly into Cheeba and gives canna-businesses a free, realtime advertising portal via access to its official Twitter page, according to Jason Draizin, chairman and CEO of parent company the Medical Cannabis Network (MCN).


​They’re calling it the industry’s very first marijuana-based search engine. 

Companies looking to target America’s multi-billion dollar marijuana industry have often had a hard time reaching potential customers online, because ad networks like Google AdSense and Facebook have been none too cannabis-friendly.

The big guys have arbitrarily removed ads for supposedly “promoting drug use” or just for featuring an innocent little pot leaf.

Enter, the latest push from the Medical Cannabis Network (MCN), a marijuana-based search engine which, according to the company, “creates online advertising opportunities never seen before for marijuana-related businesses.
“While ad networks like Google AdSense seem to flat out ban companies from reaching out [to]the cannabis community, Cheeba is stepping in to give the green light for 420-friendly online advertising,” the company said in a Monday press release.
