Marketing in the cannabis industry is no easy feat. There are antiquated stigmas to deal with, complicated rules, federal laws and regulations to finagle, and a little something called a federal ban crushing all hope of traditional marketing methods for the foreseeable future.
Cannabis marketing is still a necessary part of running a cannabis business, though, especially in the increasingly competitive and ever-changing market. "Cannabis sales reached $25 billion in 2021, and so many states have moved forward with legalization that 44% of Americans now have access to legal, recreational cannabis products."
Luckily, the industry is full of innovative cannapreneurs who are dedicated to successful (and completely legal) marketing and awareness strategies based on adding value, educating, and building relationships with their peers and cannabis customers. What’s more, these brands and marketers are sharing the wealth and publishing best practices, trends, and industry news for you.
We’re happy to share a curated list of the best cannabis marketing blogs and newsletters, selected from thousands currently doing their thing on the internet. These brands work tirelessly to educate, encourage, and embolden their readers with well-researched and high-quality information.
