The PotSaver brand prides itself on working only with fully regulated and compliant cannabis companies and as such has watched carefully while these issues have been worked through by local regulators. And as several dispensaries acrossLos Angeleshave begun to receive their licenses, PotSaver has proactively moved forward by adding additional members to its LA-based salesforce to ramp-up efforts for the release of its premier LA publication, which is expected to hit markets in the early part of Q2 2018.
Additionally, PotSaver has added significantly to itsSan Diegopublication by expanding its base of advertisers to businesses outside of cannabis, such as some of the local restaurants and businesses that make up the unique and lively community that isSan Diego. These developments are in lock step with the recent agreement signed with EyeChronic.TV to incorporate their digital media platforms into the expanding suite of expanding services offered by MTRAC and PotSaver.
MTRAC CEOVanessa Lunasaid "With the recent agreement with EyeChronic, and the newly licensed dispensaries in LA, PotSaver is really in a very unique position to offer advertising services to the dispensaries not available from other companies. In addition to the compliance services offered by MTRAC, and the imminence of an electronic payments solution, MTRAC will be in a very strong position to capitalize on this multibillion dollar market sector."
