How it all started.
Cannabiz Marketing Solutions wasn’t planned. There were no corporate meetings behind closed doors with billionaire backers looking to angel invest in a marketing company for cannabis. It just kind of happened…. like evolution.
After years of affiliate, client and local SEO projects, there came a point of clarity.
The original local SEO company, Rebel Base SEO helped tons of local and small businesses generate positive ROI online. The pain point was that we maintained a constant influx of random leads and each new project required tons of research for the niche. Sometimes we did our job too well, and the client ended up selling their business (This happened 3 times in 2 years).
It took a bit of deep diving, soul searching and number crunching for figure out what we were truly passionate about. When the dust settled we figured out that the best clients we ever worked with as a whole came from the cannabis industry.
It’s always a little risky turning down multiple 6 figures a year in client SEO, but the heart wants what the heart wants. When it all boils down to it, we are passionate about cannabis… and we know what it takes to get results.
We have put together a passionate team of bad ass digital marketers who also happen to be cannabis enthusiasts. We really do love seeing our clients succeed, and we are here to help with every step.
Who We Work With
The cannabis industry is arguably one of the most restrictive industries online. While the stigma around hemp, CBD, cannabis and other hemp derived products are lowering, the lack of support from a digital standpoint is still pretty obvious. There are more and more agencies dipping their toes in the water with big promises and very little experience. We have been doing this since 2016 and have helped grow dozens of companies from 4 figures a month to 5, 6 and 7 figure organizations.
As the industry progresses, so do we.
There were a ton of limitations on how and where to market, and to be honest most of the “solutions” offered by companies with huge financing were crap repackaged as better crap. This leads to a whole lot of business owners still operating like Blockbuster video stores when everyone else has multiple streaming services.
Digital Marketing for the Cannabis Industry
We prefer to work with cannabis/ THC companies more than anything. We will happily work with anyone in the cannabis industry regardless of where you are in your business (as long as you have a marketing budget). We are no longer taking on CBD or “hemp derived” clients who are doing under 50K ($50,000) a month in sales.
There are a number of reasons for this, but the real reason is that we just kick ass at cannabis.
The business started helping local businesses grow. We combine our expertise in both ecommerce and local SEO and have put together strategies that just work for shops.
We even went ahead and helped build our own custom ECOM platform for cannabis dispensaries that is far better than anything that any of the multimillion dollar companies has released.

Why No Pics and Bios?
I decided to take them down after a few of team members complained about other agencies contacting them for info and trying to recruit them. And seriously, just having one bio about the founder of the company seems a little egotistical.
When you make the choice to work with us, you’ll get the chance to meet the team. 🙂
