Cannabis Culture is an excellent source for all things cannabis in Canada and the United States. The company has a long history of running up against Canadian lawmakers, including having its three of its dispensaries in Vancouver shut down. This includes numerous other legal and possible ethical violations from owner Marc Emery.
The potential controversies aside, Cannabis Culture is a vital resource for not only cannabis current events but also for its original content. A recent article delved into who actually uses pot and hot today’s climate is changing the “pothead” image.

While not ideal for daily news, Honest Marijuana’s blog does provide quality tidbits you won’t find at every publication. Instead, they delve into topics that appeal to intermediate or experts in the field.
However, the blog keeps novices’ attention with the easy-to-read approach the writers take.
Unlike the others on the list, Cannabis Training University’s blog content is not the most enticing content it offers. Their blog is an excellent source for learning about how to be a caregiver in addition to interesting historical dives like examining the history of cannabis in Islamic countries.

The only knock against Green Relief is in which many brands suffer: a lack of consistent posting. While the reads are insightful and informative, its infrequent posting schedule makes the blog a casual check-in rather than an everyday read.
