It is a pleasure and privilege to join forces with such a smart, forward-thinking group of people. We look forward to working together with Maven and the other publishers on the platform to further build out the cannabis vertical."

“We believe in the potential of the cannabis industry and understand the constraints cannabis marketers often face when advertising in the digital sphere,” said Maven President Josh Jacobs. “We plan to become one of the few publishing and advertising platforms that can offer a reliable strategy for cannabis marketers using a spectrum of association.”
