The world according to cannabis
Cannabitch, formerly a weekly column at the now-defunct alt-weekly San Diego CityBeat, is an award-winning newsletter covering cannabis culture by freelance journalist Jackie Bryant (who by day is managing editor of San Diego Magazine).
Cannabitch won honorable mention in the “Best Solo Newsletter” category at the 2022 NYU School of Journalism American Journalism Online Awards. Judge Lyz Lenz called it a “wildly entertaining newsletter that is deeply revealing about American biases and vices” that “illuminates the world of weed, and in the process, the world around us.”
Cannabitch also won the “best blog” distinction at the San Diego Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists journalism contest in 2021 and 2022 and the essay “California’s Weed Country is Lit” was selected by Padma Lakshmi for inclusion in the 2021 Best American Travel Writing anthology, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Jackie writes about cannabis for The New York Times, San Diego Magazine, MJBizDaily, Voice of San Diego, Different Leaf, Leafly, San Francisco Chronicle, Uproxx, High Times, Sierra, Forbes, San Diego Union-Tribune, WeedWeek, CannabisNow, California Leaf, Weedmaps, Healthline, Playboy, Cosmopolitan, Eater, Yoga Journal, and many other publications.
