While you can lose many hours to websites throughout the day, nothing is quite like Reddit. Couple this with a thirst for knowledge of all things cannabis, and you've got quite the combination. We've tracked down our favourite subreddits you need to check out. Just don't blame us if you spend a little too long scrolling!

As an open forum for everything from relationship advice to bad-mouthing movies, Reddit sure is a mixed bag. So it should come as no surprise that the cannabis community has turned to Reddit as a go-to source of information for all things marijuana. And why not?

There are plenty of tips, product reviews, testimonials, and information for one to build up a pretty substantial personal encyclopedia of knowledge. While some posts should be taken with a “pinch of salt”, cannabis education has truly grown with the advent of Reddit.

Why and How Stoners Can Use Reddit as a Resource for Weed Information

Whether you regard yourself as a cannabis connoisseur or are completely new to it, gaining access to information about weed couldn't be simpler these days. Accessible through an app on your phone or a humble web browser, Reddit allows experienced users to impart their knowledge, and new users to absorb it. But it's not all formal; these communities also act as a great place to share humour and pictures, dispel myths, and exchange anecdotes about everyone’s favourite herb.

What Are Reddit’s Most Interesting Weed Communities to Follow?

This really depends on what you're looking to get out of your Reddit experience. Are you seeking practical growing advice, or are you just there for a laugh? Of course, there's nothing wrong with either motive! With that in mind, we've put together a list of the top 10 weed subreddit communities you've just got to check out.

For all things related to the art of cannabis smoking, look no further than the r/trees subreddit. This light-hearted forum features a host of hilarious memes alongside photos of users’ packed bowls and joints that are sure to spark envy.

There is also a little bit of a rivalry between actual tree enthusiasts and this particular page. Because of the name, many aspiring arborists visit r/trees expecting to find out some information on maple trees, only to be met with the dankest strains. This has led to another page, r/marijuanaenthusiasts being bombarded with actual discussions of trees and photos of people's favourite trees. Overall, it's a hilarious back and forth, and well worth looking at both sides of this heated online war.
