Frequently Asked Questions

Cannabis PR creates space for businesses through different relational and persuasive strategies. The best PR marketing companies in Canada create stories and positive messages that they then promote in those spaces that they have gained in that constant interaction with different actors such as the public and service-providers related to the cannabis industry.

It’s clear that cannabis still has a long way to go. Venturing to promote your company or your products or your brand on the standard channels (Facebook, Amazon, Twitter, Instagram) runs the risk of ads being eliminated, because of the regulations and terms of use that exist. Public relations is the ideal alternative to make yourself known, create awareness around your brand and gain followers. Then you can generate the leads that will give you the expected profitability.

Top Cannabis PR Firms will help you maintain a positive image of your brand or business. They will do this by drafting and distributing press releases and bringing your story to the press. They will also help you interact with your community and the industry, always keeping conversations going regarding your brand, your products, or services. Marketing, on the other hand, generates impulse strategies, promoting the products and services of a business. It is much more impersonal, through advertising and management of traditional or digital media

While doing public relations does require an investment, keep in mind that it will be significantly less than if you opt to create traditional strategies with one of the digital marketing agencies in Toronto. Keep in mind that advertising for this type of industry can be expensive, and as mentioned, you won’t be able to do it just anywhere. On the other hand, for much less than the cost of this type of project from Internet marketing companies, you can achieve significant results with a solid PR strategy.

Case Studies


Mary Agrotechnologies


Mary began as an Indiegogo dream story. Now they are using their tech to solve the problem of food deserts on a global scale. It’s a challenge to balance it all but with Alan Aldous they know that their messaging is always on-point. They wanted a cannabis PR firm to assist them in their mission.


We leveraged 2020’s growing sentiment toward “grow your own” cannabis to create maximum buzz around Mary as a product while the team was busy applying for a very rare opportunity to grow herbs in China. That, along with their IPO has given us many chances to keep Mary AG and their growing operations in the public eye on a regular basis.


More than 16 earned media opportunities.



CB Therapeutics


Biotech company CB Therapeutics sought traditional PR services, a complete face-lift of their website, as well as social media strategy, growth and management. The company produces synthetic cannabinoids (such as CBD, CBDA, and CBN).


We created a beautiful website for CB, and in our first month of providing services to the client we started immediately connecting them with pertinent media publishers that wanted to feature CB in their publications. On the social media front, we developed an entire social media strategy, created assets and deployed the strategy along alongside  organic follower growth.
