With more than 1.9 million monthly users and 1.15 million Facebook followers, theweedblog.com is a category tour de force with its focus on marijuana legalization, recipes, how-to’s and growing tips. The Weed Blog includes reviews of different strains of marijuana, the science behind growing and the effects on users, and commentary on marijuana-related events and political issues.
The head of The Weed Blog, Travis Maurer, is nationally known for his work advocating for marijuana legalization, and played a critical role in legalizing recreational marijuana use in his home state of Oregon.
The goal of The Weed Blog is to reduce the stigma of cannabis usage and increase legislation for legalization. The blog was created “to facilitate a constructive conversation about marijuana in America … including both medical and recreational marijuana policies.”
