PROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES FACED BY THE CANNABIS INDUSTRY
•Prohibition on cannabis advertising and unfair censorship of cannabis content.
- For cannabis brands and retailers, the big social media companies ban advertising and weed related content, thus making it difficult for them to create and build brand awareness, engage with customers, generate leads and boost sales.
- Cannabis influencers on the other hand are constantly being shadow-banned by the big social media companies and as such they not only lose their followers but don't have the creative freedom to do what they do best. They also cannot monetize their followers.
- Cannabis consumers can't find like minded enthusiasts, 420 events nor are able to ask questions and get answers about cannabis products for medicinal or rec purposes.
