Newsweed is the leading French news magazine on the legal and global news of cannabis.
At Newsweed, we believe that comprehensive and unbiased information about cannabis is one of the keys to understanding this amazing plant. Overflowing largely from the sphere of the “small joint at night on his couch”, cannabis touches in its entirety to all subjects of our society: health, social, justice, economy, agriculture, chemistry, science…
Providing true, sourced and verified information about cannabis, while taking into account legal, scientific, therapeutic and cultural developments in cannabis, is the basis of Newsweed’s work. And we strive to do it daily.
Newsweed was founded in 2015 by Aurelien BERNARD. Launched April 20 as an informative blog, the finding was that there was no source of French and French information on cannabis. 3 months after our launch, Snoop Doog was launching its cannabis media, MerryJane.com. We had aimed right!
The growth of the audience, the interest of the French and Francophone community and the international context pushed us to grow to become a true media brand. Beyond the editorial sphere specific to the site, we have tested different video formats: JTs on Youtube, vaporizer tests, “infused” dinners, interviews for other media or for TV shows … We also move regularly to European cannabis fairs, and have contacts with all actors in the field, in France of course, but also abroad.
We see it abroad, the vision on cannabis is changing. Its medical use extends strongly, with real therapeutic applications, and it seems that the meaning of history now goes rather at the end of its prohibition. Newsweed will accompany the evolution of the subject, with the ambition of continuing to be the reference French cannabis media!
