Affiliations with the Cannabis Industry:
Cannabis Tech is privately owned and not directly affiliated with any cannabis companies, advocacy groups, or organizations. However, we do receive compensation for content creation, publication, and distribution from various cannabis and hemp industry companies, as well as PR agencies that represent cannabis-centric businesses.
Our Vendor Partners pay an annual subscription in exchange for a directory listing in our Marketplace, product listings, and an ongoing ability to submit and distribute content to our audience. There are no specific criteria for vendors to become partners other than their products or services must be related to cannabis and hemp production and/or consumption technology or mycology technology and equipment. All vendors must be approved by Cannabis Tech management.
Product Reviews and Endorsements:
Cannabis Tech accepts compensation for long-form written and video product reviews. It’s important to note that this compensation covers our resources in content creation and does not impact our perspectives on the overall result or rating of the review. We maintain impartiality by valuing integrity and providing honest reviews to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions.
Sponsorships and Partnerships:
In 2024, Cannabis Tech is launching “Cannabis Tech Coast to Coast,” where we will be accepting sponsorships and marketing opportunities for our RV travels across the United States. These sponsorships allow us the opportunity to travel to sponsored locations and create engaging and informative content for our audience.
We are not affiliated with any cannabis advocacy groups, and we do not actively participate in campaigns or initiatives related to cannabis legalization or access.
Conflicts of Interest:
There are no potential conflicts of interest that readers should be aware of when consuming our content. We prioritize transparency and will promptly disclose any conflicts that may arise.
We only endorse products that we would personally use or recommend to friends and family. Our selection process starts with personal interest, and consumer products undergo a review process, while B2B equipment and services start with a company interview.
Changes and Updates:
Vendor partners’ accounts are removed upon termination of their membership. Landing pages will be removed, but articles, videos, and webcasts will remain published on Cannabis Tech indefinitely. We update our disclosures annually to reflect any new developments.
