TOP 10 SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCERS
(Last Updated On: December 7, 2016)

Where do the vaporizer and cannabis community influencers reside on social media? We are very curious to know too. Tons of social media studies, research, and data have made striking points about the revolution of social media, the influencers, and its impact in helping consumers make decisions. 

Gone are the days of darkness, for everything now is real time. Everything can now spread globally in a single tweet or meme. These – can make or break not just an individual, but also the spectrum of a competition of brands. Social media no longer just serves our whims of narcissism and social connection, but it has set information and opinions in a wildfire that has never been seen in history. 

This is the social connection economy, where collaboration and influence matters more than ever. Word of mouth has progressed from chit-chats in the backyard; it has now set in a larger spectrum where everything happens in real-time. FAST!

If detailed vaporizer reviews, editorials and blog posts are not enough, what does it take to bring you to the next level and click on the shopping cart? Who will you typically listen to? How does he/she/it enthrall you with a 140 character tweet or Facebook meme? Why will you follow him/her/it?

With these curiosities, the Smokazon Blog team has set out to investigate and dig deeper in social media to learn who the influencers are in the vaporizers and cannabis community. 

Note: We have gathered the list of the Top 10 Social Media Influencers (5 on Facebook and 5 on Twitter) not just based on the number of followers they have, but we have also analyzed the level of interaction and influence scores generated by social media analytics tools Klout and wefollow.

Top 5 Facebook Community Influencers

High Time Magazine

There is no doubt that High Times Magazine is the king in both the cannabis and the vaporizing communities. It’s undeniable that whatever they say on their website and on Facebook, everyone reads, follows and comments on. To say that the High Times Magazine is powerful is even underrated. The influence that they have over to both communities is something that will be hard to match.

MagicalButter.com 

We can’t deny that MagicalButter has been a game changer since its release. No qualms, no criticisms about this product. And the most fascinating thing about is the way MagicalButter engages with its followers on Facebook with every single post. And we seem to understand why – MagicalButter, with all of its “magic”, rarely promotes its products to its followers.  It posts only what is relevant to its community. The fun posts, the trivia, the education, and the advocacy – these are the perfect recipe that makes MagicalButter on top of our social influencers list.

Master Bong

Master Bong, the “McGyver of Pot” is certainly a celebrity on Facebook. Not only he engages and gives entertaining advice to his followers, he goes beyond the mile by even going personal with them.

It is undeniable that Master Bong is someone who can influence and help us in making big decisions.

Hail Mary Jane

Hail Mary Jane, for all its advocacy and activism, is also a social media rockstar. More than the entertainment they provide on their posts (that gets warm engagement from their followers), is a subtle advocacy to raise the awareness about the benefits of medical cannabis and also the buzz that’s going around the world on legalization and stuff that you should know!

G Pen by Grenco Science

It’s a rare feat that a vaporizer manufacturer will attract a high following on social media. But G Pen has been changing the game as to how social media folks view vaporizer manufacturers on social media platforms like Facebook. While we can see that the G Pen is very visible on their timeline, they have made sure to not make it too promotional. Instead, they have focused on the power of visual content by sharing amazing photos of G Pen in different backgrounds. Not to mention the other entertaining posts they have!

Cannabis Culture 

You see, it takes more than activism to become an influencer. It takes more than a tweet to join a movement, to believe in a cause or to even hit a follow button, more so engaging by retweeting or favoriting someone’s tweet. Cannabis Culture has exceeded these qualities that make them someone worthy to follow and someone worthy to become an influencer in the community. It’s more than the tweet, it’s the magic of it that makes you want to crave for more, believe in what they are fighting for and follow every word they say.

Conclusion

With social media being described as the biggest thing that has ever happened in recent times, many consumers like us, have become prone to potential abuses from brands or organizations that will try to mislead us. While access to information and second opinions have never been easier, it remains very difficult to validate a specific vaporizer and to know if it really the best one to use or if new medical findings about cannabis are true in its entirety. It’s a crowded place, hence the need for someone or some organizations to keep them in check and to keep us safe.
