  • (1888PressRelease) May 02, 2019 - Shadow Banning isn’t only for politics and cryptocurrency anymore – Facebook and Instagram are still avidly using the technique to attack the burgeoning cannabis community. The app founded to enable freedom of expression and the exchange of any canna-centric information among its ‘users’, PotSmoking.com, represents a big step forward in solving this problem.

    Page owners can’t prove their content is hidden from their audience, but the numbers don’t lie.

    Steve Einzig, founder and CEO of PotSmoking.com explains “I’ve heard dozens of stories about popular cannabis pages just disappearing. With Facebook and Instagram not allowing cannabis accounts to use their internal promotional tools, these cannabis pages are even more important for marketing purposes and these people are often out of business overnight. With the Green Rush exploding all over the world, our app will be positioned perfectly to provide the solution.”

    Canna-centric apps like New York City based PotSmoking.com are providing another option for cannabis content – an anonymous app where their “users” can share whatever they choose with like-minded people from around the world. One way they are different is that every post is seen by everyone on the app’s 420 Worldwide page, thus creating a true inclusionary social media platform without the debilitating algorithms.

    Potsmoking.com was conceived when CEO and co-founder, Steve Einzig and his close college friend Steven Stern got together in New York City in 2017. Stern was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in November of 2014 and in concert with other cancer medications uses CBD and THC to help manage the disease. As a result of this regimen, Stern’s condition is stable after over 4 years. Together, they set out to create a new cannabis social media platform that could provide an alternative to the big social media apps and aggregate content to educate people around the world about the medicinal benefits of cannabis.

    “We want the app to be a platform to educate and give hope to people around the world battling cancer or other medical conditions where Cannabis is becoming an acceptable treatment.” says Einzig. “Aside from being a social media platform, the app includes the latest online content covering cannabis and cancer, using CBD and THC to treat opioid addiction, medical marijuana facts and resources, legalization information, daily marijuana news and anything our ‘users’ want to share with our ever-growing international cannabis community.”
