The Story of CNBS

The world of cannabis has a long history as well as a fast-paced and continually changing present and future. As a result, it can be difficult for cannabis consumers and people with questions to keep track of cannabis terminology, how it works, how it can be used, and how to separate marijuana fact from fiction.

Who Are We? A Word From The CEO

CNBS was first established in 2015 as by me, John White. As I was the only crew member back then, I was in charge of just everything – from website design and social media management, to research and writing, resulting in relatively slow pace of progress as quality is not something I am willing to compromise on. We didn’t have a lot of web pages back then, but we did put a lot of work and effort into each of them.

In February 2019 I decided it’s time to go bigger, I felt like I have too much knowledge to share and I just can’t handle it all by myself, with so many low quality cannabis related websites it’s our time to shine! Even high-quality and well respected websites in the industry have fallen prey to low-quality content, which makes the task of finding reliable sources of information quite challenging. To begin serving as a solution to the problem, I rebranded as CNBS and hired a crew of professionals dedicated to developing the best and most definitive cannabis resource available online.

The CNBS Mission

There are many organizations dedicated to promoting cannabis legalization around the world. They usually have at least a few lawyers on-board specializing in local and federal laws as well as protests and lobbying – they are working hard to promote full legalization of cannabis – both for medical and recreational use. While we are very supportive of these goals, we are also striving to create something different.

The mission of CNBS is to promote and educate about the cannabis plant and become a definitive resource for those hoping to learn more about cannabis-related topics. Cannabis legalization has come a long way, and we believe we are very close to “the day after” – when cannabis is fully legal, at least in most of the western countries. We believe this is the right time to start putting our focus on educating the public, both for responsible consumption and knowing the different options and benefits this plant brings, medically and recreationally.

Currently, our editorial efforts are focused on the website (and its future app), putting everything together, covering all the main cannabis-related topics, and ensuring everything is well researched and written. We are also planning to launch a series of educational seminars and events, both for individuals and businesses.

CNBS’ Platforms:

Currently, our website is our primary medium, but it won’t stay this way for too long. Here are our current (and future) platforms: Website is neither a magazine nor a blog; we are focused on quality, not quantity. You will not find 1000’s of pages of fluff or five new articles each day on our site; we don’t produce posts, we provide usable 101 guides.

Instead, we focus on selecting key topics and giving each page the full attention it deserves. We keep updating and polishing our pages with the best available information. Nothing is “set-and-forget” in our approach. We have pages initially published in 2015 that have since been modified and updated numerous times by qualified content writers and editors.

Each article is extensively researched to provide the most up-to-date and accurate facts and information. Resources used include raw data from studies, scholarly and peer-reviewed journal articles, government department and research center websites, articles published by educational institutions, as well as reputable news sources. The site boasts a wide range of informational topics and product guides that cannabis consumers will find both helpful and educational. The CNBS mission is to offer diligently researched facts and guides that visitors can rely on for all of their marijuana-related questions.

Social Channels

Although we do have big plans for our social channels, we are currently focused on the website. Therefore, at the moment, our social channels are only “semi-active,” we publish mainly new pages as well as pages that were just been re-polished (again).
