My family is trying to create a start up business selling weed paraphernalia. We are really excited about building our business, but keep running into huge hurdles that are really setting us back. Our newest one is that that our credit card processor we're trying to use for our online store will not support us. They're saying they will not work with us unless our social medias and website are completely clean of words, hashtags, and pictures that are related to, include, or mention weed, cannabis, or CBD in any way. This is really killing us because we do not have a store front, and are not in many independent stores yet. Plus, it's almost impossible to advertise traditionally so we rely on our social medias to spread brand awareness.
We're new to the industry so if anybody has any advice on how to work with this system, or if there is a different payment processor other people use that is cannabis-friendly please let me know! Also, if anyone can shed some light on the advertising side, it would be greatly appreciated too!

The Mary Jane Experience is hitting the road! If you haven’t already heard, we are pimping out a Sprinter van and turning it into a Mobile Podcasting Studio (follow along on youtube). We will be traveling the US and Canada to visit with cannabis industry professionals, enthusiasts, growers, lawyers, doctors, patients, and beyond. We want to tell your story to the world – but in order to do so, we need to be able to find you.
So we are asking you to add your location to our public CannaVan Map. We will do our best to visit everyone on the map and feature your business on our podcast.
We cant wait to meet you!

I hope this message finds you well. My name is Jeffrey and I've just created a product called Bud Box (Miao Decor) to validate an idea I had during school. I noticed that almost all marijuana users had something in common: a container to store their stash, whether it was a zip-loc bag, or a recycled shoe box. Now that we’ve graduated, I decided that it was time for all of us to move on to something better — and that is the story of Bud Box.
Bud Box is a high-quality lacquer box that not only serves as an organizer for your marijuana storage needs, but is also a high-end decorative piece for the bougie stoner. It comes in two colors: Midnight Blue and Army Green.
The box is designed to hold 1 grinder, 2 generic canisters of weed, and space for more accessories such as rolling paper, lighters, pipes, and so on.
I have attached a several photos to provide more context for my box. If you'd like an even closer look, please feel free to visit www.miaodecor.com to learn more! I'd appreciate everyone's feedback!
I create educational posts about CBD and manage a couple social media accounts, one for the CBD shop I work for.
I've also been in charge of promoting in the past for certain events as well as the glassroots art show for a few years. I'd love to help in any way I can!
Do you grow yet?
SunBud Solutions recently launched pre-orders for our all-inclusive grow pod (built-in light, fan, filter, and timer) that makes growing easy enough for anyone to jump in. We are a Vermont-based company, and anticipate shipping our signature Sun Pods out in December (in time for the holidays!).
As we ramp up over the fall, we are looking to create an affiliate program. If you're interested in working with us as we build up SunBud and bring growing into the mainstream, contact me at email@example.com.
Thanks (and open to all feedback from those who have been affiliates for other companies, are interested in SunBud, etc.).
