At WeedWeek, we don’t have anything against getting high, but we view the phenomenon of cannabis legalization through a wider lens. It’s a complex political story, inseparable from the cruelest aspects of American history, as well as a cultural and scientific catalyst.
Cannabis is also an industry, one poised to achieve staggering growth, with ripple effects across the economy. It’s easy to crack jokes about weed and the people who enjoy it, but this business is exceptionally challenging. Participants need credible and timely information.
WeedWeek aims to become the authoritative source of news and business intelligence for the industry’s leaders and aspiring leaders. We’re also building out a suite of information resources that will help them do their jobs better.
Business journalist Alex Halperin started writing the WeedWeek newsletter in 2015. It now has more than 8,000 subscribers including many of the most influential figures in the cannabis world. They appreciate our incisive writing, aggressive reporting and that we are editorially independent. Advertisers have no influence on our editorial content. In 2020, we launched a major expansion and we now publish original reporting and analysis daily.
Cannabis is North America’s most interesting industry, and arguably its fastest growing. We think WeedWeek is the best way to follow it and hope you’ll take the time to explore our offerings.
Quartz recently called us one of the best cannabis news resources.
One of my favorite things to do on Monday morning is read the weekly WeedWeek newsletter. It’s hard-hitting, and full of important updates / happenings throughout the industry.
