About

I am a freelance multimedia journalist focusing on the intersections of business and culture in the cannabis and psychedelics industries.

I am a co-founder and editor-in-chief at Inside the Jar, a growing independent publication focused on drug culture in Canada and the United States. My first book, “The Little Book of Cannabis: How Marijuana Can Improve Your Life”, was published by Greystone Books in 2018 on the same day cannabis was legalized here. In 2019, the Toronto Star bestseller was also named the #1-selling non-fiction cannabis book in the country. A follow-up, “The Little Book of Psychedelics”, is in the works.

My byline has appeared in the New York Times, Forbes, Vice, Leafly, Calgary Herald, Georgia Straight (where I received national and regional awards for my work), CannCentral, and Inside the Jar, among others. As an author, I have been featured on CBC and Global News, as well as a wide variety of national radio shows. I endeavour to cover cannabis from an international perspective and hope you enjoy reading my work.

I am available for freelance work including event and news coverage, copy writing, portraiture, documentary projects, multimedia, and more. Please contact me with any inquiries at info@amandasiebert.com.
