Support The Elegant Stoner's mission with Patreon
Hello! As you probably know if you’ve been visiting us over the past year and a half or so, The Elegant Stoner is a website dedicated to providing news, views, and reviews about cannabis and the growing industry around it. It’s a fascinating time for our favorite plant, as legalization sweeps the United States and new types of products find new types of audiences almost daily. We’re working hard to provide a clear, independent voice among the shuffle, and to be an all-in-one source for everything you need to know about enjoying cannabis in a classy, luxurious way. And we’ve been doing great: readership is up, our content is improving, and we’ve been noticed a few times already — you might have seen us on Reddit and Lifehacker.
If that sounds great to you, then we’ve got good news: There’s a way you can help us grow and be better! We’ve created a Patreon page for the site, where you can show your support with a small monetary contribution.
By promising to contribute $3 a month, you can become a Reader of The Elegant Stoner. This is a cheap and easy way to show your support, especially if you’ve become a regular reader or have even just enjoyed one post. With this contribution, you’ll get thanked with text (and a link of your choice, if you’d like) on an upcoming post. And you’ll get the satisfaction of helping us improve the site, making it more possible for us to continue to grow, and to expand our capabilities around running content like full interviews, video pieces, or even a regular podcast.
To join up, go on over to our Patreon page, and sign up there. At the first of each month, you’ll be charged the fee, and your mention will go up on the site soon after that.
Becoming a patron is a great way to support the site, and will offer exposure benefits that will only improve as we grow. If you’ve appreciated any of our content here already, we’d greatly appreciate your support, at any level.
Additionally, if you have products or services that you’d like us to cover with review content, we’re happy to take a look at those for free. You definitely do not need to be a patron to be covered by the site. Be warned, however, that we are striving to be as objective as possible with our reviews: If we think a product or service is bad, we’ll say so, no matter what. Sponsorship does not preclude us from being honest about your product or anyone else’s. We appreciate our patrons, but our first duty is to our open readership (and our main content feed will always be freely available here on the site as long as we can keep paying to host it).
Thanks for your interest in The Elegant Stoner and what we’re doing here. We’re thrilled to be a part of the impressive, diverse, and wonderful cannabis community, and we’re excited to help shape the next evolution of this drug’s amazing culture and history. Thanks again for your support, and for coming along with us on the journey!
