Advertising / Sponsorship Policies & Disclosure
We’re transparent about how we can bring quality content, competitive rates, and useful tools to our communities by explaining how we generate revenue. At The Cannabis Community, we strive to help you stay informed and make smarter decisions around cannabis. While we adhere to strict editorial integrity, our posts, pages, ads, and communications may contain references to products or services from our partners and affiliates. We’re a community-focused brand and have a deep understanding that without the support of our community, we would not be here. That’s why our heart, trust, and dedication have always and will always be with our audiences. Therefore, while we work with others, sponsorship does not influence The Cannabis Community’s coverage and placement of editorial items on our website, newsletters, and digital communications. All sponsored content is marked as such in the manner where we’ll disclose we are working with or collaborating with an organization.
TheCannabisCommunity.Org follows a strict editorial policy so that our members can continue to trust we are putting their interests first. Our passionate team of advocates and writers work to create honest, informative, timely, and accurate content in order to provide our readers with the information they can rely on.
Trust is at the heart of everything we do and is not something we take for granted. Our mission is to continue expanding education, awareness, and access to legal cannabis. To do this effectively, our writers have established editorial standards in place where they fact-check content to ensure what you’re reading is correct and up-to-date. We add another layer of assurance by maintaining a firewall between our editorial team and our advertisers. Our writers are not directly compensated by our advertisers.
The Cannabis Community’s team writes on behalf of our readers in order to give the most contextually relevant information needed to stay informed and make educated decisions around your cannabis journey. Our strict guidelines ensure that our independent content is not influenced by advertisers. They also ensure our content is accurate so that when you’re reading and engaging with our community, you can trust that you’re receiving credible content you can continue to rely on.
How We Generate Revenue
You have questions about cannabis. The Cannabis Community has answers. Our dedicated team of experts has been helping people navigate the cannabis industry for over a decade. We wake up every day to provide people with objective and professional advice along with the tools they need to succeed in their journeys with cannabis. TheCannabisCommunity.Org is an independent, advertising-supported publisher, media outlet, and e-commerce brand. We may be compensated in exchange for the placement of sponsored products and services, or by you clicking on certain links posted on our site.
Therefore, this compensation may impact how, where and in what order products appear within listing categories. Other factors, including our own proprietary website rules, self-reported data, and aggregated information may determine which products and services are offered, and where they may appear on our platforms. The Cannabis Community also generates revenue from sponsorship of our newsletters, blogs, video productions, webinars, podcasts, polls, surveys, giveaways, events, and other multi-media creations. Further, we sell and distribute cannabis-inspired apparel and branded accessories. While we strive to provide a wide variety of offers, The Cannabis Community does not include information about every existing product or service.
It is the sole responsibility of our advertisers, sponsors, and Patreon subscribers to ensure that material submitted for inclusion in our platform is accurate and compliant with applicable laws.
