Vermont's Green Mountains are now home to a groundbreaking chapter in the story of cannabis. Since July 2018, Vermonters have been granted the privilege to cultivate and possess cannabis for their personal use, a milestone in the state's rich history. This landmark movement took a significant leap forward in October 2022, as Vermont embraced the commercial sale of adult-use cannabis, positioning itself as the 11th state in the U.S. to legalize the plant for recreational purposes.

This progressive legislation allows individuals aged 21 and above to legally acquire up to one ounce of marijuana or its equivalent in THC content, fostering a deeper bond between Vermont residents and their right to cultivate personal cannabis gardens. Such measures have not only opened new avenues for cannabis enthusiasts but have also laid the foundation for a vibrant commercial sector to emerge.

Vermont's strategy in regulating the sale of cannabis is both thoughtful and thorough, emphasizing a commitment to legal compliance and market safety. The emergence of dispensaries and retail outlets across the state, each strictly adhering to rigorous operational standards, underscores Vermont's dedication to responsible consumption and product sourcing. This shift towards a more accepting and regulated cannabis market mirrors a wider trend towards normalization and acceptance. It is essential for enterprises within this domain to navigate the regulatory environment with precision and awareness.


The Hood Collective, with its deep understanding of Vermont's cannabis legislation, offers bespoke marketing solutions that not only propel your business forward but ensure it operates within the legal framework, maintaining the integrity and safety of the market.


In Vermont's dynamic cannabis market, understanding and adhering to the state's advertising laws is crucial for any business looking to flourish without facing legal hurdles. The Green Mountain State has established specific regulations to ensure responsible advertising practices in the cannabis industry, reflecting its commitment to safety and public welfare.


Key aspects of Vermont's cannabis advertising laws include:

  • Truthfulness and Transparency: Advertisements must not be deceptive, false, or misleading. Honesty is paramount, ensuring consumers receive accurate information about cannabis products.

  • Preventing Overconsumption: Promotions encouraging excessive use of cannabis are strictly prohibited, aligning with the state's responsible use policy.

  • Health and Curative Claims: Advertisements should not suggest that cannabis has healing or therapeutic effects, maintaining a clear line between recreational use and medical claims.

  • Restrictions on Incentives: While price discounts are permissible, offering prizes, awards, or inducements for purchasing cannabis products is not allowed. Additionally, free samples of cannabis or cannabis products are off-limits.

  • Age-Sensitive Advertising: It's imperative that ads do not depict individuals under 21 consuming cannabis, nor should they be designed to appeal particularly to this underage demographic.

  • Audience Composition: For any medium of advertising, businesses must demonstrate that no more than 15% of the audience is expected to be under 21. This ensures that marketing efforts are directed appropriately.


Understanding and respecting these laws is not just about legal compliance; it's about contributing to a responsible and sustainable cannabis culture in Vermont.  At The Hood Collective, we specialize in crafting marketing strategies that not only resonate with your target audience but also strictly adhere to Vermont's advertising regulations.
