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.
That's where WeedTube comes in.
An 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 video advertising directly to cannabis consumers.
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.
We just want people to be allowed to post things relating to certain plants, and not have to worry about violating community guidelines in the process.
