Startup Showcase: Civilized – Connecting Cannabis and Hemp with Mainstream Lifestyles

As the cannabis industry continues to grow and expand, more and more people are becoming interested in exploring the benefits of cannabis and hemp products. However, for many, the conversation around cannabis has been limited to “stoner culture” and outdated stereotypes. This is where Civilized comes in – as a premium content and lifestyle brand, Civilized is dedicated to bridging the gap between cannabis and hemp with mainstream lifestyles.

An Engaging and Inclusive Platform

Founded in 2015, Civilized was the first lifestyle brand to elevate the cannabis discussion beyond “stoner culture” and bring it to the masses in a quality, engaging, and inclusive platform. The company quickly rose to premium media and event brand status by using the power of omnichannel content and partnered thought leadership to pioneer an industry-wide community with an education-first approach to cannabis.

The Next Phase of Civilized

Now in its next phase, Civilized’s brand evolution puts the content, community, and culture first by filling an industry and canna-curious consumer void. The omni-channel platform bridges the hemp, CBD, and cannabis communities with their mainstream adjacent counterparts. The result is a truly holistic discussion on education, entertainment, information, and cultural immersion.

A Multifaceted Lifestyle Brand

Civilized is more than just a media company – it’s a lifestyle brand as multifaceted as the individuals and industries it seeks to connect. The company is dedicated to providing a platform for individuals to explore the benefits of cannabis and hemp products in a way that is informative, inclusive, and empowering. Whether you’re a seasoned cannabis user or simply curious about the benefits of these products, Civilized is here to help you discover new and exciting ways to incorporate cannabis and hemp into your life.

Giving Back to the Community

Civilized had the great honor of growing in parallel with the cannabis industry over the last number of years. However, it was truly the community that built this brand, and the company is excited to have the opportunity to give back to the community first. Civilized is dedicated to supporting initiatives that promote education, social responsibility, and positive change within the cannabis industry and beyond.


If you’re looking for a high-quality and engaging platform to explore the world of cannabis and hemp products, look no further than Civilized. With its commitment to inclusivity, education, and community building, Civilized is truly the go-to source for all things cannabis and hemp.
