Write For Us!

Big Buds is on a mission to bring you all the insider intel on the cannabis industry, including the latest on cultivation, lifestyle, current affairs, business and more. To that end, we’re now accepting submissions and pitches from experienced cannabis writers. News and feature articles on topics including but not limited to:

  • Word and domestic news
  • Business and politics
  • Legal
  • Product developments
  • Health and wellness
  • Lifestyle
  • Growing and cultivation methods
  • Medical
  • Science
  • Arts and entertainment

Writing is open to anyone over the age of 18 — regardless of where you live — though respondents who live near industry centers (Los Angeles, New York, the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, Washington, D.C., etc) might be privy to additional opportunities (interviews, events, politics, etc).

Our site covers reviews, interviews and features, but we are also looking for dedicated news and list writers. This is a paid-per-post position. There are currently no full-time positions available, but we offer competitive pay per post.

Nice To Haves

  • Prior experience writing cannabis-related content for an online or print publication is strongly preferred.
  • Extensive knowledge of the cannabis industry and community (both past and present) is a requirement.
  • Knowledge of search engine optimization.
  • Knowledge of online post production is a plus.
  • Knowledge of WordPress a plus.

How To Apply

If you have links to prior online writing experience, email us two or three examples of your work, but ONLY if it’s relevant to cannabis writing. If you were writing in a different field — or have not written news content — we need fresh cannabis writing samples to look over. Do not send us short stories, poetry, food reviews, lifestyle pieces, or other writing samples that are non-cannabis related. Any samples that do not adhere to these guidelines will not be considered.

FInally, if you are pitching an original story, you should provide a thorough pitch before submitting the story. Please do not follow up with us if you do not hear back immediately.
