What is WeedTube?

WeedTube or TheWeedTube is an adults-only online community of cannabis users and enthusiasts, and the first video-based social network for cannabis content. We are also the first social network to offer cannabis companies commercial-style advertising.


How Did It Start?

WeedTube was launched on March 1st of 2018 by a community of content creators who had been affected by the YouTube "cannabis purge" - The social media platform (YouTube) shut down accounts with cannabis-related content at an unprecedented rate. The group of co-founders banded together to effectively create an entirely new, digital video-based social network that embraces cannabis.

Due to strict community guidelines, and the federal status of cannabis, many accounts get suspended or deleted with no warning or indication a violation has been made.


When Did The WeedTube First Launch?

WeedTube was launched on March 1st of 2018 by a community of content creators who had been affected by the YouTube "cannabis purge" - learn more about the cannabis purge and the timeline of the WeedTube launch on out about page. Click here to view the timeline of events that led to The WeedTube launch.

Since the creation of the site and the launch of our mobile app, the content has shifted with the needs of our creators. You may have seen hundreds of smoking challenges in the past, but the community has since adapted to the educational and review sphere. There are still hundreds of challenges and creative projects such as Trucks That Get You High and an Arcade Game Grow Box and we welcome this content whole-heartedly. As legalization continues to become a possibility, we aim to be an informational source you can turn to when you're not sure how to use the latest strains. What is Delta8? What is HHC? These are questions our users have answered through ingeniuty, research, and testimonials. Hear from a Mom who smokes weed or listen to an interview with some of the best cannabis industry professionals. Whatever you're looking for, you're bound to find something to entertain you on WeedTube. We are excited to bring you the best in cannabis content as our site grows and we express sincere gratitude to our users for making the platform what it is today. 


As we continue to grow, WeedTube strives to provide all services with integrity.


Our mission is to provide for the community, and provide a change in perception of cannabis around the world. We are working hard to consistently create a platform that services our community in the best ways possible. You don't have to smoke weed to enjoy our platform (though it may enhance the experience slightly). We encourage all kinds of content to be on our site! We want to learn and grow while exploring our curiosity and imaginations. Sometimes cannabis can be an effective tool to help us get back in touch with those parts of ourselves. 


How Do I Become A WeedTuber?

TheWeedTube currently supports a number of qualities including 4k, 1080p, 720p, 480p, 240p & 144p. We also accept all frame rates including 60FPS, 30FPS & 24FPS. For the smoothest experience, we recommend uploading 1080p 30fps. Uploading to WeedTube is as simple as a few clicks!

Feel free to contact our service team with any advice or comments or concerns, this is a community and we aim to be more responsive to your needs than other social platform competitors.

We are working hard to improve our SEO but it is an uphill battle with federal cannabis-illegality. Sharing and word-of-mouth is how we grow! We have resources on SEO that will help creators tailor their content to be more accessible on Google and we work with creators to highlight content that may not be getting seen as easily.

TLDR; words are important! How you describe your video, how you comment on a video, all of that impacts what is found on search engines. If you like a video, comment on it! Tell a friend! This is the only way our platform will grow!

You DO NOT have to upload an SRT file. When uploading a video there are two language dropdowns. The first one is for the language of the video's audio and the second is for the subtitle language. If it says you need to upload a SRT file please ensure you do not have the second dropdown filled.


Can I change my username?

Yes, you can change your username by clicking on your profile and selecting settings.


What file types are supported?

Currently, TheWeedTube supports a vast range of file-types including MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, M4V, MKV and many more.


Are there any limits to video size?

What if my upload fails?

If your upload fails, please submit a ticket to our Ticket Portal


What am I allowed to upload?

Almost anything! The reason we started TheWeedTube was because we got booted off our own platform, YouTube! At TheWeedTube, we want to ensure that cannabis creators are celebrated, not censored. Please be aware that this website is ages 21+ depending on your state, and abides by all federal US laws regarding cannabis. We have a strict Terms of Service & no-tolerance policy against content that contains or promotes nudity, harmful or dangerous content, hateful content, violent or graphic content, harassment, cyberbullying, spam, misleading metadata, scams, threats against others, copyrighted content, impersonation or child endangerment. Failure to follow these rules may lead to the immediate termination of your account. 


Can I Use Copyrighted Music?



Can we upload videos from other social platforms (ex. YouTube, Vimeo, Instagram) to TheWeedTube?

No. You cannot embed a video from another platform, but you can upload the same content you upload here to other social platfroms. Please review the Rules and Terms of Service before uploading.


How are videos monetized on TheWeedTube?

To be monetized on your channel must have a minimum of 420 subscribers. Currently, TheWeedTube has to manually calculate the views through our analytics to ensure who is eligible for monetization. If your channel is eligible, we will reach out to get your address and contact info to send a check. Creator payouts are based on your eligible views in a monthly period. 

Updates To TheWeedTube Creator Payout System


What does “Monetized” mean on TheWeedTube?

Monetized channels or “Partnered Creators” are channels that earn money for their views on TheWeedTube. TheWeedTube pays 52% of the monthly profits from video advertising to their creators. Each monetized creator earns their portion of profits from the total monthly views. 


What is a “View”?

TheWeedTube defines a “view” as anything longer than 5 seconds viewed of the actual video content. If the advertisement plays but the video does not, that is not a view. If a user comes to the view page but does not click play, that does not count as a view. 

TheWeedTube website and app unfortunately track each “page view” as a “video view”. At this time TheWeedTube uses a 3rd party system to verify all the “views” on TheWeedTube to ensure the authentic “view” count. 


Can I delete my account?

Yes, please be sure as this cannot be undone. In app: click on the left navigation (three lines), click on your profile image, click settings,  the option to delete your account will appear. Again please be sure as this CANNOT be undone.


Can I livestream on TheWeedTube?

TheWeedTube hopes to have the ability to livestream soon! Just not quite yet!

If you are experiencing an issue on please submit a ticket to our Ticket Portal. Include your Username, Device type and describe the issue you are having in detail. (Example. Weedtuber, iPhone 8+, When clicking the like button, it does not like the video).


How to Upload to WeedTube

Uploading to TheWeedTube is as simple as a few clicks! To upload to TheWeedTube, ensure you complete the following steps. Failure to follow all the steps will result in your upload failing. It is recommended that you use Google Chrome browser when trying to upload.

Step 1:

Click the green “Upload Video” button at the top right of the webpage.

Step 2:

Click on the upload page and it will allow you to choose your video file. If you receive an error on this page please try disabling any type of ad blocking software as this may conflict with the upload page itself.

Step 3:

Once you choose a video it will begin to upload and you can now fill out the video information. Including the title, description, thumbnail, tags, and category. We recommend a minimum of 2-3 sentences in your video description to optimize your content. The description is a great place to add a little extra fun to your content! Within the description, you can link your social profiles, the glass used in the video (even affiliate links) or even write a few sentences to make your content stand out from the crowd. If you create a detailed video on how to make cannabutter, it may be valuable to write down a few steps or even link out to where users can buy the items you feature in the video. Do not spam links or affiliate links or your content will be removed.

Step 4:

The video upload works in two processes. It first has to complete uploading, then fully complete processing. The processing may take some additional time. Once you complete all the steps on the form a green “Submit” button will appear. When you click Submit, it will say "We will notify you when your video will go live." After clicking submit it may take some additional time to publish. Please allow 30 minutes - 1 hour..

Step 5:

Add tags. If you are familiar with YouTube tags, treat these tags the exact same way. Tags are what are people use to better discover your content. Let’s say you do a giant dab from your favorite bong. Now you can upload it right to the weedtube category, but what if you want people who are specifically looking for a giant slab dab? This is where tags can help. Use tags to help people better discover your videos. Here are some example tags: Bong, Streamroller, Dab Rig, Big Dab, Slab Dab, Weed Comedy, Giant Bong, Weed Games, Joints, Blunts, Hotbox. Things that signify what is going on within the content should be added to the tags. Please keep tags down to a minimum each video. Less is more on TheWeedTube.


Additional Information

Please be sure to leave your browser open when uploading! TheWeedTube is not like YouTube in the sense that it can resume uploads at a later time. If you close your browser mid-upload, you must start from the beginning. Leave your browser open while uploading for the best results. 

If you spam excessive links, tags or other things in the description of your video, your content will be flagged by our spam queue. We will not remove or release any content from the spam queue, so please upload appropriately.

If you encounter any issues while using the website, please submit a ticket to our Ticket Portal.

Happy Uploading!
