Marijuana has always been a hot commodity, albeit a taboo one, but regardless of whether the market is recreational, medical, grey or black, the product has never been a tough sell. Now more than ever cannabis is in the mainstream and public demand has spread from millennials to baby-boomers. But alongside the demand for product comes the demand for producers, retailers, processors and hundreds of ancillary businesses that have long-existed as packaging suppliers, design firms, soil producers and countless other roles that could easily transition to the new industry.

Growing cannabis, as it turns out, isn’t the hardest part of operating in the new industry. The appeal of the new industry has depleted plenty of bank accounts and 401ks from enthusiasts who never thought the day would come when cannabis could be legally bought and sold. Believing that the plant would remain underground isn’t the greatest oversight, but opening a business in one of the most regulated industries without any preparation or experience could be aptly described as “disastrous.”

Marijuana Venture is the densest, monthly magazine dedicated to those brave individuals who are willing to walk along the bleeding edge of legalization and help normalize cannabis businesses.  Every issue is packed with useful articles that help business owners navigate through their specific recreational and medical markets.

Part of what makes Marijuana Venture successful was the editorial decision to keep valuable content as the number on driving force behind each issue. While many other magazines have followed the Internet’s “quick and digestible” model, Marijuana Venture has opted to boycott cartoony graphics and “top 5” lists out of the magazine in order to keep long-form articles with actual useful information for current and potential business owners. The decision has earned the magazine both critical and public acclaim.

Every month Marijuana Venture provides solutions for industry business owners. Drawing answers from experts across the globe to contribute original content that cannot be found anywhere else. Marijuana Venture was built to satiate the needs of licensed marijuana business owners regardless of what state, county or city they operate from. The magazine features articles on the following:

Marijuana Venture is an award-winning, nationally distributed magazine dedicated to helping marijuana business owners stay legal and profitable. takes the articles on all of the above and more from the monthly publication and re-publishes them for growers searching for an online-hub of reliable information.
