Who We Are:
Hempista Magazine was the first hemp/cannabis publication to focus on beauty, fashion, wellness, home and lifestyle. We were launched in 2011. Hempista Magazine is also the first cannabis lifestyle publication to partner with mainstream brands for reviews, press and advertising.
PR and Product Placement
Placing products or relevant press releases and news with Hempista.com is easy; but it’s different from buying an advertising package.
First, contact us at hempista AT hempista.com and pitch us what you have! It needs to be relevant : hemp, fashion, beauty, home, eco products, hemp foods and dry goods, hemp lifestyles, careers, articles of interest to women & lgbt. We reserve the right to reject products and services for reviews or advertising.
If this is a product or service, we need a sample. If this is a dry good, beauty product or a food product, a sample would be nice; but high resolution photographs are the best for fashion, home and furnishings.
We do not guarantee product placement in any of our articles. — but we sure do try to include everyone with products and services that meet our quality standards!
We disclose our relationship with you (if any, including the disclosure of samples) according to FTC regulations.
Press for your product, service, store, site, whatever, is not free advertising. We, like other publications, are press, and post what we genuinely think and recommend. Reviews and news are not advertorials.
If you have a dispensary product or dispensary you would like us to review, please contact via email hempista AT hempista.com – We only review cannabis dispensary products available in Northern California at this time. If you are out of this area or out of state, we can still give your product or dispensary some press. email us with your press pack and we’ll try to include you. We do not accept product samples from dispensaries or cannabis product manufacturers outside of California.
Product Placement Standards for Press and Paid Advertising
1. No MLM. No network marketing or other vernacular to describe the same activity these terms represent. We do not place press or offer sponsor and ad placements for any MLM regardless of the products. Along these same lines, no stock schemes or pump-and-dump type of companies.
2. We have a strict allergy and sensitivity policy in place for culinary, cosmetic, and wellness products and services. Hempista Magazine is a reliable source for the cannabis and hemp community to refer to when seeking product and service recommendations which are labeling compliant and big 8 compliant, as well as preservative-free. You can read more about anaphylaxis here — our commitment at Hempista Magazine is to serve this under-served, but critical need in the cannabis community for more allergen and preservative-free products and services.
We offer some opportunities for sponsored posts that are in compliance with Google webmaster regulations. You may contact us for pricing hempista AT hempista dot com To get the most out of working with us as a publisher, we will create an effective ad space for you that stands out as featured content, while meeting the rigorous technical standards that ultimately lead to great traffic online. We think you’ll like the price too. We encourage you to contact us if you think our demographic is a great fit for your brand.
