NUGL Introduces New and Improved Search Engine

    When the NUGL App first launched in 2018, we wanted to bring a better cannabis search app to the marketplace. We heard complaints about current cannabis search apps, as well as experienced our own issues with them. So, we set out to develop a truly unbiased and simple to use cannabis search app that was built for the people, and by the people.

    After our initial launch, we continued developing new features and adding updates which mainly focused on cannabis businesses and services. But the one thing we felt could always use improvement was our search engine. The search started to feel sluggish and wasn’t always generating accurate results. So we sat down at the drawing board and decided to rebuild our search engine from scratch.

    We needed to not only increase the scaleability of our user database, so search results would load faster, but also needed to make the search bar more functional and intuitive for our users. And after months of R&D, we finally feel that our search engine is working as we intended. Though we are always open to user feedback on how we can improve, and we gladly welcome it! Click here to test out the new NUGL search engine.

    How It Works

    In our latest release, we updated the search bar to include a new category selector that helps narrow down search results right off the bat. Simply select a category option – All, Retail, Brands, Services, or Influencers – and hit search.

    For more specific results, add text to the search field before you submit your search.

    Once your search results are generated, simply click on the listing below to view the company profile.

    Or if you prefer, click on the “View Map” link to the right of the result to view their location on the NUGL map.

    Alternatively, if you just want to browse nearby locations, simply click the little map icon to the right of the search bar. This will open the map, centered on your current location, where you can click and drag around to view nearby locations with ease.

    It’s as simple as that! For more info on this update or to let us know what you think about it, please leave a comment below, or contact us at We hope you enjoy the new NUGL Search! And if you don’t, please tell us how we can improve!
