We’ve received a tremendous amount of great feedback on our recently published “Top 10 Vaporizer Review Websites” that we want to continue with a list that we think will benefit our ever-growing community a lot. This time, let us go in-depth and recognize the dedication of the Top 10 Cannabis Blogs, and why they stay on top pushing for the advocacy, and educating people, and explain why the community loves them.
Transformation of Cannabis: A Roller Coaster History
Looking back at how cannabis was so badly treated throughout history, what we’ll see is a very sad picture filled with repression, prohibition, and lies. What used to be an organic gift of nature became something the entire world was against. All this happened under the pretense of protecting the world from the perceived dangers of cannabis.
In the next few weeks, you are going to see some updates from us on the major developments that moved our community so forward with significant breakthroughs in studies and vital legislation that will shape the future of medical cannabis and the dedicated community behind it.
The Road to The Top: Why the Cannabis Blogs are Not Your Ordinary Blogs
It takes a lot of courage to put up a blog and build a community of medical cannabis advocates given the prejudice that the majoritystill have towards those who use cannabis for well-being. The fact that this has been going around for years signifies the reality that the public, more than ever, needs us so they can understand why we are advocating for what everyone thinks is unorthodox.
The Truth the Public is Not Aware Of: NORML
Colt Smith, the Executive Director of Hub City NORML, pointed the cardinal but often dispelled truth on the article he recently wrote for the Smokazon Blog, the members of Hub City NORML are everyday people too. Just like Anna and Jake are your neighbors, Frank and Cynthia, who are using cannabis to help them ease and heal their illnesses, are everyday people too. However, what it looks like is an unfortunate case of people who chose to live with so much anonymity.
Measuring the Blogs: It’s not All About the Popularity, It’s About Authority
We measured the blogs not just by the number of comments they are getting on their blog posts, Facebook comments or Tweets they are getting. We have chosen the Top 10 Blogs based on their influence in the community,the gravity of their advocacy, and how they work to shift the opinions of the misinformed public and shake the future of a community that deserves to be praised for the constant dedication to move the truth forward. Persistence my friends!
Now what you came here for, let us list down the Top 10 Cannabis Blogs, why they are the ultimate authorities and their secret for being successful.
#1 : NORML
Possibly the largest site advocating for cannabis law reforms, NORML has not just established an organization where connoisseurs can check the latest news about the community, it has also started a movement that shapes the public opinion towards supporting legalization of responsible cannabis use for medical, wellness, and recreational purposes.
NORML shapes relevant conversations that aid the public to understand the realities that surround medical cannabis and why it should be considered as a civil liberty and a constitutional right. If you look at their articles, you will see a tremendous amount of affinity from the people who leave comments.
Aside from the encouraging articles they write on a regular basis, they remain on top of their advocacy to help legalize it, by encouraging its visitors to join, donate, act, or shop on their site. They also have chapters around the country that anyone can become a part of.

#5 : Cannabis Culture
The Cannabis Culture is one of the foremost go-to magazines, (that has ceased to publish printed content) if you are looking for relevant information, news, opinions and features about medical cannabis today. The aim of Cannabis Culture is simple: by providing news, opinion and features, they are also setting the stage of their activism to be heard not just in their country headquarters in Canada, where statutes and judicial rulings about medical cannabis are vague, but also around the world.
Aside from the editorial work of the Cannabis Culture, they are also known for their advocacies such as www.FreeMarc.ca (its publisher/Editor-in-Chief) and to free other cannabis prisoners. Aside from that, they are also known for their activist work to end the prohibition and vicious global war on drugs.
