While I try to be the best cannabis news site on the web by reporting on many industry topics and events, the 420 Times has never officially a “forum.” While you can comment on posts and we naturally create banter that goes on for years upon years, it’s never been a cannabis forum where threads are started and you can chime in and debate, argue, and educate people in a classic internet forum style.
There are many forums out there that allow you to do that, and I’m occasionally a visitor to those types of sites as I’m always looking to learn more and see what other people are saying in our industry. So today I figured I’d do everyone a solid and share with you my personal list of cannabis forums that I recommend you check out.
Which Cannabis Forums are the Best?
I’m not going to rank these, because as they say “different folks, different strokes,” and we all have our reasons to visit cannabis forums, so I’m just going to list out the ones in the order of frequency that I visit them.
If you haven’t been here, check out Grass City. Not only will you be able to engage in a very active forum, where you can learn just about anything you want about marijuana, but you can also shop online at one of the premier head shops that sells just about everything you could imagine! They tout their forum as “The #1 marijuana community online,” and it’s many categories of topics include:
- Smoking Accessories
- Bongs, Dab Rigs, Bubblers, & Water Pipes
- Smoking Pipes, Glass Spoon Pipes
- Vaporizers (for herbs)
- E Liquids, E – Cigarettes, E – Juice
- Other smoking accessories
Those are just the smoking accessories sub forum, and then you get to the marijuana forum, which has:
- Marijuana Consumption Q &A
- Marijuana Stash Box
- Weed Edibles
There’s also a forum for medical marijuana, which has forums for news and legalization. I’d also like to point out that this marijuana forum, and the whole forum for that matter, is VERY active, with most threads updated each day, and very few dating back to the prior day. It’s hard to generate that much activity each day on so many topics on a forum in today’s day and age where Facebook and other social media platforms hog everyone’s time, so that shows how robust of a community they have at Grass City’s Forum.
Additionally, you’ll find threads on marijuana as a business, where you can get into industry topics as well as learn about trade shows and conferences.
Not to sound like an infomercial, but “that’s not all…..” There are many more sub forums that you can dive into, and perhaps the most built out forum that has a lot of activity is the forum about growing marijuana.
And for all of you looking at growing your own weed, you must check out my High Supplies Review. You can buy whatever you need to get your growing, going!
Like most forums, Grass City has other topics if you want to trade barbs with 420 aficionados. Dive into “Mind over Matter,” or just talk politics. Its’ all there, in one weed friendly community.

This site is geared towards the advanced growers out there. Another very busy forum, this is a must read if you are into cultivation and the whole cannabis lifestyle. Learn about lighting, fertilizing, hydroponics, sexing, and much, much more.
They even have a store where you can buy seeds online.
Another big growing forum, you can definitely spend a lot of time learning from some veterans on this forum. “The Grow Room” acts a lot like the THC Farmer site in the respect that it talks about all the aforementioned components that go hand in hand with growing. There is also the “Cannabis Cafe,” which serves as a community for the members. You can interact with people and discuss anything under the sun, such as politics, fitness, cooking with cannabis, and much more.
This is a great place for the novice personal grower. They even state that on the site. No question is stupid, and people are here to help. Great place for the noobs to get their feet wet.
Not to be confused with yours truly’s website, the 420 Magazine is a cannabis magazine that has articles and a forum. They operate in the same manner as we do here, updating frequently with news about the industry and reacting to announcements as they happen. The bonus here is that they have a forum, and it encompasses everything from growing, to medical marijuana talk, to cannabis concentrates. They even have a list of stores they recommend, and a legal lounge, where you can learn about politics as they pertain to the industry.
Other Sites That Aren’t Forums
Another site I viewed from time to time is Cannabis.com. These days, it re-directs to WeedMaps.com. Weed maps is just what it sounds like – a map of where you can legally buy weed in your area. Just plug in your zip code and find maps of where you can buy medical and recreational marijuana.
There are many more, and this post will be a work in progress until I highlight all of the best spots you can learn about cannabis. If you know of any that I already missed, please leave a comment below and I’ll be sure to dive in right away and check it out!
