Why join the Business Index?

Your business profile serves as a direct link between you and the community of cannabis professionals who browse Ganjapreneur regularly, empowering them to quickly find and learn about your business. Far more robust than a typical “directory” listing, your profile also includes access to one-of-a-kind marketing tools that we built specifically to address the needs of cannabis businesses.

Brand awareness

Content remarketing

Additional perks

With an active profile, you’ll get priority consideration for social shout-outs, blanket advertising discounts, and be invited to participate in exclusive content formats.

Membership Tiers:

Example category:

Your subscription level determines how your business will appear in the category. Since every reader will start at the top of the page, having an active subscription will ensure that you get more eyeballs and clicks: see the following image for an example of how different subscription levels are shown.


Featured profiles are displayed at the top of the category in random order. The listing includes your logo, description, profile link, website link, and highlighted placement.

Standard profiles are displayed just beneath Featured profiles, and include only your business name, description, and profile link (no website link from category).

Inactive profiles are displayed below all active listings in a grid format, and include only your business name.

Marketing Tools

Content remarketing

Turn our entire website into a marketing tool for your business. When you share content with your followers, all of our usual ads are replaced by a shout-out for your business.


Your subscription includes a custom snippet that you can use on any page of our website, by simply adding it to the end of the URL.

Whether you post the article on LinkedIn or include it in your email newsletter, anyone who clicks on the link is guaranteed to see your brand instead of our usual ads.

With a standard profile, your shout-out includes your business name, description, and a link to your profile. With a featured profile, your shout-out also includes your logo and a custom button which can link to your website or any URL you choose. Designed to be mobile-friendly, your shout-out adapts to whatever ad zone it appears in.

Search-optimized comments

Anyone can submit comments about stories we’ve written for an opportunity to be featured at the end the article. For every article we publish, our editors allow a maximum of three additional perspectives.

Unlike many publications, we screen comments and selectively publish those that provide useful information to our audience.


With an active business profile, when your comment is chosen by our editors to be published, it comes with perks that can be beneficial for SEO and brand awareness:

With a featured listing, your comment includes a pop-up with your logo, business description, and a link to your website.

With a standard listing, your comment includes a link to your business profile.

With an inactive listing, you are still eligible to submit comments, but your comment will not include any links.

Remember: our editors will only select comments that add useful context or insight, so if you want to use this feature to help boost brand awareness and website traffic, you’ll need to formulate a well-crafted comment. Adding your perspective on topics that you have personal experience with is one of the best ways to maximize your chances of being selected.
