Awesome eh!

A great review covers how you felt about the quality of the product, service, and brand. You can include recommendations for your favorite vaporizers, buds, or something everyone should try, get creative, be positive and have fun with it.

Hello, nice to meet you!

I’m The Chronic Beaver, who created this site and a media website about Cannabis in Canada, lifestyle and fun!

The Chronic BeaverI’m passionate about many things and cannabis is one of them, obviously. I firmly believe that I’m helping trail blaze the cannabis lifestyle as it moves from a subculture into the spotlight of mainstream Canada.

I’m a foodie fanatic and co-owner of a popular restaurant on Vancouver Island, BC. There is nothing like comfort food with a touch of class!  Opening and running restaurants was my passion for a long time. Nowadays, I just enjoy cooking up a storm for my friends and family.

Creativity, design, marketing, and problem-solving has always come naturally to me. For the past 8 years, I was the Creative and Marketing Director for an enterprise software company, but I left it all in January 2018 to be here, right now with you, helping trail blaze our new cannabis frontier in Canada.

By visiting budhubCanada.ca you understand that “Adult” content may be encountered that is not suitable for children. You must be at least 19 years of age (or 18 years of age, where applicable) to use this site.

Reviews are moderated for all of our business listings fairly and are treated very seriously. We will only remove or edit a review if it doesn’t follow the following guidelines:

Personal attacks, contains profanity, or is blatantly negative or bashing

There’s no need for any kind of sexual misbehavior, addressing other reviews or reviewers, hate speech and other displays of bigotry.

Conflicts of interest

Your reviews should be unbiased and objective. They should not mention another advertiser by name. If there’s any hint of a conflict, please don’t post the review. For example, owners shouldn’t sing the praises of their own businesses or bash their competitors or other business listings and users shouldn’t comment on their current or former employers.

Second-hand experiences, hearsay or you’ve never been

For example, you can’t give a dispensary a bad review because someone complained about their buds. Your reviews must be about your personal experiences, not someone else’s. If you haven’t been inside a business or tried a product, you can’t accurately rate it.

Relevance

Reviews aren’t the place for you to rant about a business and how they operate it, political views, or other matters that don’t address the core of the normal customer experience.

User Review Verification

If a review is reported to our Moderation staff as potentially fraudulent (e.g., a malicious review from a competitor or a planted review from an ex-employee) and the author’s authenticity is in question due to limited activity and/or inconsistent activity as determined by Budhub Canada’s Moderation staff then we may un-publish the review in question pending user verification. While we encourage you to let us know if you believe another user has violated our Terms of Use, we reserve the right to investigate and take appropriate action at our sole discretion and are under no obligation to enforce our Terms of Use on your behalf against another user.

  • As all business owners know, receiving negative reviews are a normal part of doing business (every company has had an upset customer at some point), and you shouldn’t be surprised to find an occasional negative review on your listing business page. We encourage business owners to write responses to reviews if they think they are inaccurate or they want to make amends with the reviewer.

Business Review Policy Disclosure

Reviews are an important feature of BudhubCanada.ca and we take them seriously. Reviews (positive or negative) will not be removed simply at the request of Advertisers, reviews are only removed or edited by our Moderation staff if the review is in clear violation of our review policy. If our Moderation staff find no evidence of a review violation and determine that the review is in compliance with our policies, then the review will not be removed. Reviews of all business listings are treated the same, regardless of their advertising status.

We have a page that’s dedicated to this topic. How to Add a New Listing

Occasionally we offer a Free Trial promotion, and when it expires your listing will be unpublished. Don’t worry, we will send you ample warning so you can upgrade your business listing. Additionally, your listing content won’t be lost, it can be accessed anytime in your User Dashboard. This is where you can renew, upgrade and edit your listing and manage your account.

Ad Campaigns are self-serve ads that you can launch and setup yourself that are accessible in your account Dashboard. We have 2 types of Featured Ads to choose from that run for as long as you desire. The Ads are easy to set up and cost as little as $0.70 per day. They are great for promoting your brand to your target audience and maximizing your listing’s visibility in search results.  When you run an Ad, your featured image is used for it, and a “Featured” small banner is positioned in the top corner.

Here is an example of what a Featured Ad looks like:

The Ads credit for the Marketing Hub Pro listing package is a $50 credit (annual package), or a $5 credit (monthly package) that is applied towards self-serve Ads.  After you make your purchase and your listing is verified,  you will be immediately entitled to the Ads credit to help promote your new listing. Our team will launch the Ad Campaign for you within 24 hours after your listing is verified. The full Ads package costs $1.60 per day to run, so for example, the $50 Ads Credit will run for just over 30 days. After that, you can launch your own Ad Campaigns via your account dashboard and set any budget you like.

The Feature Article that comes with the Marketing Pro package is an opportunity for your business to feature or spotlight any kind of promotion or event. It could also be used to talk about your business and how great it is, and what makes your business unique.

Feature Articles are published on Budhub Canada’s blog, on our cannabis lifestyle website, and on our social media channels. They are drafted by you with some help from us, and when your Feature Article is finished, we will then review it one last time for SEO purposes so you get maximum exposure online.

Shortly after you purchase the Marketing Pro package, we will reach out to you to talk strategy, timing and next steps.

The homepage “Image Courtesy of” feature is an approved professional image from your business or an image of your choosing that is displayed at the top fold of our homepage. It is displayed for 2-week intervals for a nominal advertising fee and includes a courtesy link to your listing, located on the right side corner of the image.
