The saying “it takes a village” couldn’t be more applicable to the cannabis industry. When the best growers, trimmers, and cannabis geneticists get together to create a truly unique product the marketing becomes almost as essential as the product itself. Experts in cannabis marketing have come together to form agencies dedicated to sharing the brands & products they represent. Below are some of the best marketing agencies in North America, often nominated by the brands they work with.
