Freelance Cannabis Content Creator And Copywriter

High quality, in-depth blog posts and web content for the legal medical and recreational cannabis industry in Canada and the US.  I work with companies like yours to create content that speaks to your audience, gets more eyes on your website, and helps establish your brand.

If you’re involved this industry, I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you what an exciting time this is. 

You also don’t need me to tell you how frustrating it is to be taken seriously, thanks to decades of prohibition and fear-mongering.

My mission is to help the cannabis sector establish itself as a legitimate industry.  Fighting misinformation, countering propaganda and educating the public about the benefits of this amazing plant is going to be one of the key pieces going forward.

And it starts with companies like yours.  The industry is still hamstrung by hostile rules and regulations.  From packaging restrictions to advertising bans, standing out and gaining the legitimacy you deserve is an uphill battle.

That’s why the content on your website is so important.  GOOD content not only informs your potential customers about the benefits of cannabis, it helps you connect deeply with them. 

Good content can tell your story, engage with your target market, drive traffic to your website and grow your business organically.

Most importantly, good content will build massive credibility and establish you as an absolute authority in the industry.

Unfortunately, good content also takes times.  Let me do the heavy lifting for you.

By working with someone like me, you get the benefit of an expert who will take the time to understand your company, your customers, and how you want to present yourself to the world.

Matt was a recent contributor to our blog, and we’re very happy with the work he’s done for us.  Our content department provides Spiritleaf customers with educational and informative material related to cannabis.  His article on impaired driving laws in Alberta and their affect on cannabis users performed very well, and provided us with additional impressions on our social media.

Working with Matt was great.  Very responsive and easy to correspond with, and his contribution was well formatted and required little adjustment for our site.  If you need any support with your online requirements and blog content, I would highly recommend him for the project.

About me

Matt

Content Creator And Copywriter

I’ve been a professional freelance writer for over five years.  I’ve worked in a number of industries, from health & fitness to the nonprofit sector in Canada, and I’ve recently turned my full-time attention to cannabis. 

Growing up under the “prohibition era”, I’ve always known two things – a.) that this plant has tremendous health, recreational and spiritual benefits, and b.) there is NO good reason that it should remain illegal.

Now that the curtain’s been lifted and marijuana is finally going mainstream, I want to make sure that we do it right.  Decades of prohibition, anti-marijuana crusaders and propaganda have left cannabis with a black eye.  

My goal is simple – to help the new companies of this amazing industry present themselves to the world as the professional, legitimate businesses that they are. 

It’s an uphill battle – but it’s one that we can win.

Alberta’s Impaired Driving Laws

When it comes to alcohol, most of us have a general understanding of what is and is not acceptable.

But as the one year anniversary of cannabis legalization in Canada approaches, there’s still a lot of confusion. As a responsible user, you’ve probably found yourself asking questions like “is there a legal limit for cannabis?” “How is it tested for?” “If I smoke cannabis today, will I test positive tomorrow if I’m pulled over?”.

What Canada’s Legalization 2.0 Can Learn From Colorado And Washington

On June 14th, 2019, Health Canada announced that it had finalized its regulations for the production and sale of cannabis edibles in Canada.

In accordance with amendments by the federal government to the Cannabis Act, the new rules will come into effect on October 17th of this year, and will include the sale of edibles, extracts and topicals.

Vape Death – What’s Really Behind The E-Cigarette Epidemic And #Vapeban

With the rash of media stories over the last few weeks involving e-cigarette users being hospitalized with severe respiratory illnesses, it’s safe to say that both the vaping and cannabis industries are, understandably, on edge.

And with a sixth person confirmed dead from a vaping-related condition earlier this week, the situation is only getting worse. A number of influential organizations have weighed in, new emergency laws have been passed in certain jurisdictions, and the situation has gone from bad to bordering on hysteria.

New York Moves To Decriminalize Cannabis

In July of this year, New York lawmakers voted on a major piece of legislation to further decriminalize marijuana across the state. The bill was the result of a series of debates in Albany surrounding the full legalization of recreational cannabis. The legalization initiative, put forth by State Senator Liz Krueger and Assembly Majority Leader Crystal People-Stokes, ultimately fell through after both sides failed to reach an agreement on a number of key issues. However, despite the apparent failure, decriminalization was reached as a compromise.

Why The Black Market Is Thriving In Canada One Year After Legalization

With the one year anniversary of legal cannabis in Canada on the horizon, it’s become very apparent that, rather than dwindling and disappearing like many experts predicted, the black market is still going strong. The fact that illegal sales have continued – and thrived! – could potentially dissuade lawmakers in other jurisdictions from adopting similar legislation. This poses a major problem for cannabis advocates.

10 Countries With The Most Strict Drugs Laws In The World

Between last year’s nationwide legalization in Canada, and record numbers of state legalization efforts in the US, it’s safe to say that, after DECADES of prohibition, things are finally starting to look up for cannabis users – at least, if you’re in North America. But the reality is that, while the trend in our little corner of the world is undoubtably positive, there are still plenty of countries where cannabis is not only illegal, but with drug policies so bizarre and draconian that it almost beggars belief.
