In addition, Canadian Evergreen has a comprehensive directory of legal cannabis retailers in B.C. and Alberta.

“The site is in its early days yet, but our editors and writers are working hard to make this the best cannabis site in Canada,” Franklin says.

Black Press Media has been at the forefront of cannabis content, through its Canadian team of Branded Content writers who generate cannabis content for Washington State news websites and through SFEvergreen.com, a Black Press Media property based in California.
