25 Cannabis Writing Markets And Job Resources

25 markets and job resources for cannabis writers

I’ve been meaning to put together a collection of cannabis writing markets for some time and – finally – here it is! And while I’ve included a number of publications that print cannabis content, you’ll also find a few job-finding and resume-posting resources specifically for cannabis-related freelancers. If you’re considering making cannabis your writing niche, you’re in luck because this new market is booming.



High Times

“Our editors welcome your submissions and pitches — but please keep it under 2,500 words. If we like what we see, we’ll be in touch!”

Heads Up: I haven’t vetted this company but this, “No solicitation of work outside of the website is permitted,” in the registration gives me pause. Before you sign up, be sure to confirm that you’ll be able to pitch other markets or, if this is to keep contributors from contacting clients directly, make sure you’ll know which publications this service sells to.
