Crain Publishing Snaps up Deb Borchardt’s Green Market Report as Cannabis Media Gets Even Hotter
Written by on September 27, 2021
If you are not familiar with Deb’s work on CNBC and as a financial analyst, she is a female news media pioneer in the cannabis space. Deb, and Cynthia Salarizadeh, started Green Market Report over 5 years ago and have built the marijuana financial news website into a powerhouse. While nothing in the cannabis space has been easy over the last 5 years, Deb not only had to overcome the usual obstacles in the cannabis media space such as ad regulations, social media account shutdowns, no paid advertising allowed, and “getting the cold shoulder” from mainstream media sites, but also had to battle the “bro-culture” and bullying that exists in the cannabis space for female-lead startups.
