Let’s talk about it, Cannabis Advertising
July 09, 2018
At AcuityAds, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the digital advertising industry. This isn’t just because of our cutting edge technology solutions and insightful data, it is also because of our interest in learning about the real challenges and priorities of our clients, in an effort to provide them with the best tools and strategies to achieve their goals. One of the topics currently at the forefront for us is cannabis advertising. Cannabis legislation and legalization is sparking a tidal wave throughout North America.
According to data from Statista, within seven years the US cannabis market could hit $37.3 billion and this doesn’t include the Canadian cannabis market, which professional services firm Deloitte thinks could generate $8.7 billion annually if efforts to legalize recreational marijuana are successful.
With numbers like this it is evident that cannabis will continue to be a hot topic of conversation for years to come. Digital advertising can now be used as a tool to ensure you are capturing consumer attention and creating meaningful connections with your community. Consumers need access to clear, objective information on which they can make informed decisions about consumption and/or usage of cannabis related products.
