Advertising and Affiliate Networks with Cannabis Merchants
Affiliate Networks connect advertisers with affiliates (publishers, content creators, influencers, etc.). These networks give affiliates access to a huge range of products and services. Here are the ad networks with the best reputation and offers in the cannabis niche.
ShareASale Advertising Network
Shareasale.com – Shareasale is the longest running and most reputable affiliate network that supports legitimate cannabis-related merchants.
If you don’t already have an affiliate account with Shareasale, you’ll need to sign for one before you can access the affiliate programs for these merchants:
– High converting brand with great affiliate management. Pays 30% commissions on their CBD gummies, vape juice, oil, topicals and more. Datafeed available. Wholesale also available. Sign up form here. – Huge catalog with celebrity brands like Tommy Chong and Lawrence Taylor. Over 1000 products. Two tier commissions. – Popular smoke shop with wide range of merchandise including glass, grinders, vapes and various bundles (great gift ideas). The commission is 10-18% depending on volume.
- …and dozens more.
And if you are a merchant, and looking to reach a wider base of publishers and affiliates – you should check out Shareasale’s merchant services.
CannAffiliate is a cannabis-only affiliate network driving online sales to dispensaries, CBD brands and other cannabis products and services including:
– High-end vaporizers. 10% commission on sales. Well-known brand worth looking at. – Bulk CBD flower. Not a household name, but I’ve had luck promoting them (and they pay.)
Is CannAffiliate trustworthy? Yes, seems so. I recieved a payment for 2-tier affiliate referral sales in May 2022. Glad to add them to my recommended cannabis affiliate networks!
RevOffers Performance Marketing Network
RevOffers have only been around for a few years, but their focus is on CBD and cannabis-ancillary products, so worth checking out. A few example merchants:
– Pays 20% commission. CO2 extracted. Full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate forms including CBG and other minor cannabinoids. – Pays 30% commission. CBD dog treats and other pet products.
Note: I am still new to this RevOffers, will report updates later this year.
Impact Affiliate Network
Impact was slow to jump on the cannabis bandwagon, but now have growing roster of CBD and cannabis-accessory merchants available for affiliates to promote such as:
– Subscription boxes for marijuana enthusiasts. Very popular, innovative company; worth checking out. Pays 7%. Deep-linking & promo codes available. – Vapes, Dab Pipes, Volcanoes, etc. Huge site with large selection. API product datafeeds, deeplinks & other tools for publishers.
Some of the biggest brands in the world use Impact because they are tracking pros & very reliable. I’ve been using them for many years.
CJ Affiliate Network
CJ.com has a few dozen CBD and vaping merchants including:
– 15% commission on sales. Wholesale and dropshipping available. – CBD gummies, bath bombs, protein bars, isolate and other unique items like CBD honey sticks and infused coconut oil. 18% commission
If you aren’t already a CJ affiliate, it’s worth signing up as they are one of the biggest & oldest networks around.
CBDAffs Affiliate Network
CBDAffs – This new network is focused solely on CBD brands and products. They have about 50 offers from US & international online CBD stores to promote, like Tommy Chong’s gummies. Also offer 5% of tiered referrals.
Note: I’ve yet to make any sales or paid for affiliate referrals from CBDAffs, so I’m unable to vouch for their legitimacy.

Cannabis grow equipment like tents, lighting, hydroponics and all the accessories can add up to nice affiliate commissions. Here is a shortlist of cannabis growing affiliate programs with the best products and marketing tools:

Buying cannabis online is likely to be a growing industry for months and years to come. Here are online dispensaries with affiliate programs:
Speed Greens (Canada)
Speedgreens.co – Large selection from bargain to top-shelf flower and extracts. Fast shipping within Canada. Pays 10% commission on sales. Managed in-house. Conversion not great so far (but have made some sales, not enough for payout). I do not know if they are legit — please comment if you have experience with Speedgreens as a customer or affiliate!

SupHerbs Canada – is an online marijuana dispensary based in Alberta, with Canada-wide shipping or same-day delivery in Calgary. Pays 15% on sales (however 90% of my sales have been reversed — so at this time, I can’t recommended Supherbs.) Offers coupon codes like NPB8UB1OAV for a 20% discount.
Cannabismo – Is a Canada-only online dispensary with free shipping and large selection of flower, shatter and just about anything else. Cannabismo Warning: they have changed affiliate programs multiple times in the past year, and while they have paid for some sales — they don’t seem reliable in my experience (hey Cannabismo — get in touch, and prove me wrong!)

How Do Cannabis Affiliate Programs Work?
There are many cannabis-related business opportunities to consider, and one without much investment, is affiliate marketing. This is where you promote other businesses’ products & services and receive a commission.
Merchants provide marketers with tools (like affiliate links, datafeeds, and coupons) to help promote their products. Marketers in turn receive commissions for successful customer referrals, generally a percentage of each sale.
The simplest way to get started as an affiliate is to find merchants with products that suit your audience and add the links to your site. Networks like Shareasale and Impact are good places to start your search.

How to Promote Cannabis Seeds Affiliate Programs
The cannabis seeds market is a lucrative niche to be in. Have you thought about how to promote this niche?
One of the best ways to promote cannabis seeds affiliate programs is by creating a niche website.
I’ve had my best success in affiliate marketing by creating niche websites (blogs) related to the niche that I choose.
Niche blogs generate free targeted traffic. Once you have traffic, you can sell anything.
The key is to create helpful and informative content for your niche audience. The way to do this is by researching what your niche audience is searching for.
AnswerThePublic.com search results
By doing a bit of keyword research, you can come up with tons of article ideas for your blog.
Over time, your content will rank in the search results and these targeted visitors are more likely to click on your affiliate links.
Believe me, this is a tried-and-true method of generating affiliate commissions.
Besides that, most affiliate programs require a website during the sign-up process. You only improve your chances of approval by having a niche blog.
The Benefits of Niche Blogging
Free Web Traffic
There are so many benefits to niche blogging. For one thing, the content that you create generates free targeted web traffic.
This traffic can last for years to come. Niche blogs are, in my opinion, virtual real estate.
You create your website, invest the time to develop it with content, and it provides income for many years.
As you grow your blog, you are also creating a brand. You can extend your brand by creating social media profiles.
A YouTube channel is especially helpful in branding. Connect your blog to your YouTube channel by linking out to it in your video descriptions.
It is another way to send free traffic to your website. It isn’t uncommon for a niche blog to develop into an authority website over time.
The great thing about promoting affiliate products on a blog is that there are no limitations on your income.
The harder you work, the more income you can make. It is about consistent effort.
There are many successful bloggers that earn anywhere from four-figures per month to five-figures or more per month.
My Closing Thoughts On Promoting Cannabis Seeds Affiliate Programs
I feel that the cannabis industry as a whole will only continue to trend upward. More people are using cannabis for medicinal purposes in the form of CBD oil, edibles, tinctures, and more.
Some people prefer to grow their own cannabis plants so that they know exactly what they are getting.
The easiest way to get started with making commissions is by creating a niche affiliate website.
I got my start by following a step-by-step affiliate marketing training course. I now use this same training course to help other people one-on-one to develop their own niche blogs.
