SeedFinder provides a standardized online collection of information on cannabis varieties. They provide grow advice, strain reviews, and connect growers and enthusiasts with with each other and information in a searchable way. The SeedFinder API allows access to the data through HTTP Get and POST requests as well as a client development of the content and infrastructure within SeedFinder to create applications.
We are seeing APIs appear in just about every industry this year, from finance to green tech to health care. One industry that clearly seen the value of APIs is the U.S. medical marijuana industry, recognizing thatAPIs can provide the seeds for entirely new strains of business models and applications to grow (pun intended). As more states are legalizing medical marijuana, there has been a subsequent wave of APIs being launched to support the industry and developers who are working to build apps for both patients and growers.
