About Heady Vermont

Looking for cannabis news, business startup resources, licensing info, or anything to do with hemp + cannabis in Vermont? You’re in the right place!

What We Do
Heady Vermont provides essential news and insights to cannabis and hemp entrepreneurs, investors, and other industry participants. Since 2016, we’ve made it our mission to deliver thorough, reliable coverage of issues affecting cannabis and hemp business owners. We also host events and webinars, conduct interviews with experts, distribute press releases for cannabis companies, and offer a number of ways for cannabis-focused brands to reach a wider audience.

What We Believe
We believe that building a just and equitable cannabis industry – one that’s infused with an ethos of social, racial, environmental, and economic justice – can have a positive and meaningful impact on all people and their overall well-being. Our state’s industry should be small business-driven and craft-focused, with support structures, funding and incentives for local startups, craft cultivators and those impacted by the failed War on Drugs.

We’re here to serve the cause, shape the narrative, and bring people together!
