At verp, we understand that keeping up with your social media can be time consuming. Getting all those little dopamine hits from those likes, shares, and follows takes serious dedication! Maybe one day your job will have to give you several social media breaks like they allow smoke breaks now.
Anyway, in order to help our verp readers to better identify key social media influencers who will help you gain knowledge and popularity in the Canadian Cannabis Space®, we’ve compiled The Most Comprehensive and Extreme Twitter Influencer List in the History of the Universe™.
So below is the FINAL say on all 77 influencers and any other lists you may see are FAKE lists and ours is real.
