Happy Anniversary Higher Content
One year ago, an herbalist couple decided to start an Instagram page to keep a diary of the marijuana strains they came across. They agreed to start a feed, but they knew they wanted their name to unique in that it symbolizes marijuana and all things related. After some thought, they came up with The Higher Content and soon began to fall in love with strain hunting and taking pictures of beautiful cannabis buds.
We very quickly gained followers and realized that we entered into a growing community of herbalists with a genuine passion for cannabis. Whether its rolling, smoke tricks, growing, photography, or creating a product that serves the marijuana smoker, there were already so many other herbalists across the globe that smoked like us and wanted to share their top shelf meds with the cannabis community. As our name began to spread by our followers sharing our pictures, shouting us out, commenting on our our feed, using our hashtag and telling their friends, we realized that we can and wanted to do more for marijuana.
Something that the cannabis community needed, we thought, was a source of news. Good or bad, we decided we wanted to create a website that would share the news in the cannabis community. On April 20th, 2014 (National Marijuana Day), thehighercontent.com was born. Our site quickly gained popularity throughout the cannabis community as we shared herb news about legalization, decriminalization, miracle stories and more. We kept you in the know about your favorite celebrities when it came to their experiences (some unfortunate) with cannabis. We've especially enjoyed reviewing herbal products; the ones you've been dying to try and others you may not have heard of.
It's always a goal of ours to uplift the cannabis community by enlightening, educating, and informing you about current events. We aim to encourage responsible use and behavior when engaging in cannabis use by sharing our personal experiences in our Cypher Stories blogs. As legalization begins to sweep the country, we hope to expand our mission by doing all that we can to help the states that are considering legalizing marijuana. With each passing day, we learn more about the benefits of cannabis and the inspirational figures who have made an impact in the industry. We respect and recognize those who have been a positive force in our community and want to share their stories with you.
As we celebrate our one year anniversary, we want to thank you for your continued support. We promise to keep bringing you the latest cannabis news and products and we will continue to grow and expand. Looking back on the past year, we have grown from being just a weed feed to a source for all things cannabis related. So far, 2015 has been great for The Higher Content and we're excited to see how far we'll take things this year!
