Over the years, influencer marketing has grown rapidly in popularity, and for good reason. As it turns out, customers tend to trust the opinions of influencers over celebrities when choosing which products to buy, and the same rules apply to the cannabis space.

In an industry that’s flooded with new strains and products to try, which at times, can feel overwhelming to even the most savvy of smokers, knowing what cannabis influencers to follow is important – they use their platforms and voices to inform and educate about cannabis use and share suggestions such as what CBD oils and edibles to try.
