Twitter Becomes First Social Media Platform to Allow Cannabis Advertising in the US on Liontamer Top Blog

Twitter is now the pioneering social media platform permitting cannabis companies to advertise their products in the U.S.

This development indicates a significant change in how marijuana businesses can communicate with their consumers, given that other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok consistently enforce a ban on cannabis advertising due to the substance's illegality under federal law.

The change has come as a result of the growing acceptance of cannabis in several states around the United States. With the legalization of recreational marijuana in several states, such as Colorado, Washington and Oregon, cannabis companies have been looking for ways to reach their customers. Twitter’s move to allow cannabis advertising is a major step forward in this direction.

Twitter's policy update will enable cannabis companies to promote their brands and hemp-derived CBD topical products through advertisements on the platform.

This is a major shift from their earlier policy, which did not allow any cannabis advertising at all. The new policy is also in line with the federal law, which allows hemp-derived CBD products for medicinal purposes.

The move by Twitter is being seen as a positive step by cannabis companies and their customers. It is expected to open up a new avenue for marketing and advertising for cannabis companies, as well as providing customers with more information on the products they are looking for. 

This could also lead to more companies entering the cannabis industry, as they can now reach more potential customers through Twitter.

The move by Twitter is a major breakthrough for cannabis companies and their customers. It is a step in the right direction and could potentially open up a whole new market for cannabis products. We can only wait and see the impact that it will have in the coming years.
