The Story of CNBS

The world of cannabis has a long history as well as a present that’s fast-paced and full of constant changes. Due to this, it can be difficult for cannabis consumers and people with questions to keep track of what’s what in terms of cannabis, how it works, how it can be used, as well as to separate marijuana fact from fiction.

Who Are We? A Word From The CEO

CNBS was 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! Low quality content can be found even on high quality and well know industry websites those days, which makes the task of finding reliable sources of information a bit challenging – this is why I decided to rebrand to CNBS and hire a crew of professionals, which are now working hard to create the best and most definitive online cannabis resource.

The CNBS Mission

There are many organizations dedicated to promoting cannabis legalization around the world. They usually have at least few lawyers on-board and specializes 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 towards these goals – we are trying to create something different.

The mission of CNBS is to promote and educate about this plant with definitive information resources for those hoping to learn more about cannabis-related topics. Cannabis legalization has gone 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 both for knowing the different options and benefits this plant brings, both for medical and recreational use.

While currently our editorial efforts are focused around the website (and its future app), putting everything together, covering all the main cannabis related topics, and making sure everything is well researched and well 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 main medium, but it won’t stay this way for too long. Here are our current (and future) platforms: Website is a magazine, nor a blog, we don’t have 1000’s of pages and we don’t publish 5 new articles each day.

Instead, we focus on selected key topics, giving each page the full attention it deserves. We keep updating and polishing our pages, nothing is “set-and-forget”, some of our pages were originally published in 2015, and since then were modified and updated again and again by various content writers and editors.

CNBS’ website is not about the quantity, it’s about the quality. We don’t produce posts, we produce 101 guides.

Each article involves extensive research in order to provide up-to-date and accurate facts and information. Resources used include raw data from studies, articles from scholarly and peer-reviewed journals, government department and research center websites, articles published by educational institutions, as well as credible and reputable news sources. The site has a wide range of informational topics as well as product guides that cannabis consumers may find helpful. The CNBS mission is to offer carefully-researched facts and guides that visitors can rely on when they have marijuana-related questions.

CNBS Social Channels

Although we do have big future plans for our social channels, we are currently focused on the website itself. Thus, 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 (website updates).
