There is no other industry quite like cannabis, and the B2B trade journal mg Magazine has taken a unique approach to covering this emerging marketplace.

This collaboration is a monumental accomplishment for the entire industry and clearly represents the beginning of a new era.

mg Magazine has been the cannabis industry’s leading trade publication since 2015 and is synonymous with high-quality brands.

Recipient of a coveted Folio: Ozzie Award for best overall design in B2B publishing, mg earned its loyal readership through an unwavering commitment to quality journalism, progressive design, and a pledge to break the stigma associated with the industry. The American Society of Magazine Editors has recognized mg’s devotion to the highest journalistic standards.

“mg Magazine has always characterized best-in-class and paints an aspirational picture of what our industry truly represents,” said Editor in Chief Kathee Brewer.

Today mg announced a partnership with iconic celebrity photographer John Russo which represents yet another milestone for the publication. Known for shooting Hollywood’s A-list, Russo’s photography has appeared on the covers of leading magazines including Esquire, Vogue, Vanity Fair, Bazaar, Elle, and Marie Claire.

mg will soon join this prestigious list when Russo’s work appears on the cover of the magazine’s April 2020 issue.

“Our approach is not focused on elevating brands, but on reflecting them accurately in a meaningful way,” said Chief Creative Officer Angela Derasmo. “This collaboration is a monumental accomplishment for the entire industry and clearly represents the beginning of a new era.”
