A new marketplace for cannabis art gives artists a place to show off their talent and skills
It could be said that today there is a thriving and available market for cannabis art, but still, many artists have had a hard time because most websites and platforms do not allow them to sell their cannabis-related creations. Even CBD (cannabidiol) and everything related to this compound have several bans. This market had to face difficult situations due to the coronavirus, giving them one more obstacle to keep their operations afloat. Just as these challenges were beginning to have a major impact, two outspoken cannabis advocates co-founded an online marketplace called The Artsy Leaf.
Given these restrictions, many artists have been unable to find an appropriate space to show the world all the art they manage to create through cannabis and, to make matters worse, the COVID-19 pandemic has arrived. This is where The Artsy Leaf comes in. The platform’s co-founders, Rebecca Goldberg and Abbey Weintraub Sklar, realized that there were many artists who did not have the ability to share their products on any available platform. In order to be known, these artists were using censored technology platforms, but it limited their exposure to the world.
The initial idea of both women was an in-person CBD marketplace, but COVID-19 made that plan impossible. That’s why an online space with a highly functional website was created.
The Artsy Leaf marketplace has arrived with the goal of replacing online platforms that have major restrictions for the cannabis industry. Typically, these sites did not provide any space to label, describe and list CBD products, making it difficult for artists to advertise their products.
All that has now changed and restrictions are a thing of the past with Artsy Leaf. The development of such a platform has come at a great time, where the cannabis industry and legalization are starting to boom. Many people can now have easy access to art pieces to complement the consumption that is growing and will continue to grow as the years go by.
