This week on The Green Rush, our hosts are chatting with Amanda Siebert, a freelance journalist covering the psychedelics and cannabis space and the author of “The Little Book of Cannabis: How Marijuana Can Improve Your Life”. She is a co-founder and editor-in-chief at Inside the Jar, a growing independent publication focused on drug culture in Canada and the United States and recently was announced as the new editor of the revamped CannabisHealth.com
Based in Canada, Amanda is one of the leading journalists covering both cannabis and psychedelics space with her byline regularly appearing in Forbes and having been featured in the New York Times, Vice, Leafly, Calgary Herald, and Georgia Straight. We sat down with her chat about the latest headlines in both industries including drug decriminalization legislation, how much of the investor excitement permeating through these industries is real and what’s just hype, as well as her follow up book, “The Little Book of Psychedelics” which is due out later this year.
So sit back and enjoy our conversation with journalist Amanda Siebert.
Amanda Siebert, Cannabis and Psychedelics Journalist
Amanda is a freelance multimedia journalist focusing on the intersections of business and culture in the cannabis and psychedelics industries. She is a co-founder and editor-in-chief at Inside the Jar, a growing independent publication focused on drug culture in Canada and the United States. Her first book, “The Little Book of Cannabis: How Marijuana Can Improve Your Life”, was published by Greystone Books in 2018 on the same day cannabis was legalized here. In 2019, the Toronto Star bestseller was also named the #1-selling non-fiction cannabis book in the country. A follow-up, “The Little Book of Psychedelics,” is in the works. Her byline has appeared in the New York Times, Vice, Leafly, Calgary Herald, Georgia Straight (where she received national and regional awards for her work), CannCentral, and Inside the Jar, among others. As an author, I have been featured on CBC and Global News, as well as a wide variety of national radio shows. I endeavour to cover cannabis from an international perspective and hope you enjoy reading my work.
