The Cannabis World has exploded in the last few years. If someone said to you in the year 2000, ‘I’m a Cannabis Influencer’ for example, you’d think they were bonkers - or maybe a little bit high! But now, it’s commonplace. Heck, we even get family-friendly TV shows about Cannabis, but still, it can be a dirty word in places and still carries a stigma with some.
We all want that stigma to be removed and some of the big industry players, people, influencers and dedicated media outlets like Leafly and High Times Magazine are helping with this. That and the push for medical marijuana to be legalised all over the world are helping drive the industry forward.
In this post, we are going to look at some of the key movers and shakers, influencers and publications that are helping drive the legal industry forward. We take a look at 5 different people and place that are doing this! This will become a regular blog so watch out for the next edition.
Dr Gupta has endorsed Cannabis use for medicinal purposes as can be seen in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0ojs3AFono . Dr Gupta is a well respected Neuro Surgeon who has looked closely at the benefits and has put his weight behind legalisation from a medical standpoint. It’s people like Dr Gupta that is helping pave the way to legalisation across the US and the World.
For marketers like me, Gary Vaynerchuk, or Gary Vee as he’s known to most, is someone I’ve been watching for a while. He’s a social media champion and offers some great, modern, fresh business and life hack style advice. Whilst not officially a champion of weed, he is impressed and excited by the way the Cannabis Industry is moving forward. Check out this ‘The Future of the Cannabis Industry’ YouTube interview with Dope Magazine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtzodN8zSxU . Anyone with Gary Vee’s size following backing the movement is only a good thing for me.
Cheryl truly is The Queen of Cannabis. She’s quite simply a pioneer within the industry and her large following does wonders to help dispel any myths that might still exist in this world. Heck, she’s even taking Cannabis to new places online as you can see here from her LinkedIn profile! https://www.linkedin.com/in/cherylshuman/ Make sure you follow her there and on all the other social media channels.
As the weeks go on we will focus on specific influencers on specific platforms. For week one of this post lets just look at the Cannabis Influencer hashtag on Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/cannabisinfluencer/?hl=en Click here and you’ll be taken to an array of Cannabis fans who are doing their things on the platform. Instagram is a huge, fast-growing platform and we love being part of it. Follow the Discount Cannabis Seeds page here for our very own content: https://www.instagram.com/seedsdiscount/?hl=en
Leafly is the largest cannabis website in the world, with over 15 million monthly visitors and 40 million page views across its website and mobile applications. Leafly allows users to rate and review different strains of cannabis and cannabis dispensaries. Leafly is a must go to platform for all things Cannabis. Check it out here: https://www.leafly.com/ . It goes without saying but Leafly and it’s presence across all media channels help move things in the right direction when it comes to legalisation and knowledge of Cannabis in general.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our look at the movers and shakers in the World of Cannabis. There are thousands more so we will continue a regular blog post and focus on the people and platforms that are doing wonders for ‘Cannabiz’.
