Cannabiz Media Vs. CannaRegs (Fyllo Compliance Cloud): How to decide

What's the best solution for cannabis real estate agents

Posted by Richardson Dackam on October 29, 2020 · 6 mins read

Cannabiz Media’s mission is to simplify how companies and individuals connect with established cannabis and hemp license holders.  They fulfill this mandate by offering a searchable database, CRM, and email marketing tool.  On the other hand, CannaRegs (Fyllo) has its sights set on creating a comprehensive database of cannabis-related regulations and legal resources. According to the company’s founder Ostrowitz, CannaRegs is “a legal research platform.”

Here’s a more detailed point-to-point comparison of the two platforms and their features:

About Cannabiz Media

Cannabiz Media collects and verifies information about cannabis and hemp companies. Through the Cannabiz Media License Database, vendors can uncover information about a facility’s size, activity type (grower, dispensary, etc.), county location, physical address, email address, website, state license ID, and equipment.

About CannaRegs (Fyllo)

CannaRegs, which was acquired and integrated into the Fyllo MarTech platform, is primarily a web-based research tool that aggregates information about cannabis rules and regulations. Entries that can be accessed through their database include bills, policy changes, statutes, guidance documents, municipal codes, ordinances, and tax charts. The platform sources information from local, state, and federal levels.

  2. Subscribers can receive alerts about new licenses that have been issued across US states and Canadian provinces. 
  3. Tools such as the CRM and email marketing tool allow subscribers to start connecting with potential leads all in one place. 

Benefits of CannaRegs (Fyllo)

  1. CannaRegs users can spot opportunities ahead of the market by tracking legislative procedures, applications, etc. 
  2. Search filters make for a more streamlined search experience, and users can carry out more than one multi-jurisdictional search at the same time.  
  3. The CannaRegs platform provides extensive coverage of federal, state, and local cannabis legislation in more than 1350 jurisdictions. 

Who can use Cannabiz Media

The majority of Cannabiz Media’s users are vendors looking to connect with cannabis and hemp license holders. For instance, a cannabis packaging business may use the platform to find dispensaries operating in Michigan and start reaching out to them. 

Who can use CannaRegs (Fyllo)

CannaRegs targets areas of interest that are affected by cannabis regulations and legislation, including advertising, banking, employment, facilities, health, licensing, packaging, safety, taxation, and zoning. The platform’s user base consists of cannabis and hemp businesses, state and local government reps, advocacy groups and lobbyists, publishers, advertisers, legal professionals, and marketers.


From the context of a cannabis real estate agent who needs to perform in-depth zoning research on specific properties, Both CannaRegs and Cannabiz Media may lack specialized features to accomplish this mission. CannaRegs mostly help with regulation search and meeting updates, and Cannabiz Media is focused on helping businesses generate leads among established license holders who may not necessarily be focused on acquiring additional real estate. For those looking for a real-estate centric alternative providing cannabis real estate listings, there’s Zonegoat.
