Email Services That Work for Cannabis Businesses in Canada


If you’ve ran an email campaign for a Canadian cannabis brand, you understand the struggle.  If you’re just getting started with your first email strategy,  welcome to a world bound by terms of service.  Cannabis focused companies and organizations are extremely limited when it comes to who will offer them services, and that includes email service companies like Mailchimp, Benchmark Email, and a handful of others.

Traditionally, navigating all of these services takes a lot of time, and at Extract we’ve personally had our issues with a few platforms as a cannabis brand.   To save you some time, we dipped in to the world of email marketing services and made an email marketing service comparison chart so you can save yourself some time and avoid frozen accounts, lost contacts or legal issues.
