Cannabis Culture is a magazine about marijuana and hemp around the world 04-Feb-2019
Cannabis Culture is a magazine about marijuana and hemp around the world. As of spring 2009, Cannabis Culture Magazine is no longer available as a printed publication. We are still recognized as one of the best sources for information due to our highest-standard journalism and news delivery about cannabis-related politics, activism, growing information, entertainment and more, so bookmark www.CannabisCulture.com!
At Cannabis Culture we love marijuana in all its diverse forms. Each issue is packed full of marijuana and drug war news, amazing grow stories, political and historical information, and spectacular photography from the top cannabis photographers. From fabulous budshots and cultivation advice to cutting-edge pot culture and the drug war journalism, Cannabis Culture aims to bring you nothing but the best.
We are an activist magazine dedicated to liberating marijuana, freeing pot-prisoners around the globe, and bringing an end to the vicious worldwide war on drugs. Every issue challenges prohibitionist myths and provides current and essential information pertaining to marijuana.
The History of Cannabis Culture
Cannabis Culture magazine has seen rapid growth and change in its twelve-year history. The magazine was founded in the summer of 1994 as a newsletter edited and published by Marc Emery, who also founded Hemp BC and the Cannabis Cafe (now the BC Marijuana Party Bookstore and the New Amsterdam Cafe on the “Pot Block” in downtown Vancouver). The newsletter was called “Marijuana and Hemp” and Emery printed them totally on hemp paper.
Dana Larsen took over as editor in December 1994, and in January 1995 produced the first and only issue of Marijuana and Hemp Magazine. With the next issue, the title was changed to Cannabis Canada, and the new magazine continued to be printed entirely on hemp, coming out four times a year.
Cannabis Canada was one of the first websites on the Internet, with an online version of the magazine launched simultaneously with the print one in December 1994. The first issue is a good indication of how primitive the web was when we began!
In the early days of the magazine, it was subsidized by publisher Emery’s Hemp BC store operation. Yet Hemp BC suffered from repeated police raids, so hemp paper was discontinued after issue #3 due to the great expense involved.
The magazine continued to evolve and expand, adding colour and picking up new advertisers and contributors. At issue #13 we changed the name to Cannabis Culture to reflect our growing international coverage, and to acknowledge that ‘cannabis culture’ crosses all borders.
Boldly Pushing Forward
Looking at history, Cannabis Culture is still strong today. [Up until early 2009] we still come out every two months and print about 70,000 copies per issue. Publicity has been rapidly growing, thanks to associations with Showtime’s TV hit series Weeds, Showcase’s Trailer Park Boys, various movies, musicians and celebrities, and more in the works.
Around the world, the marijuana movement is blossoming into a unified cultural force. The legalization of hemp and medical marijuana are harbingers of the coming end of prohibition and the drug war. We are documenting a turning point in history when cannabis will be returned to its place as a loyal friend and helper to humanity.
We hope that you’ll join us in our pursuit of knowledge and justice, and enjoy being part of our magazine as we journey together towards freedom.
Peace and Pot,
Cannabis Culture Magazine
