About

The Green Market Report focuses on the financial news of the rapidly growing cannabis industry. Our target approach filters out the daily noise and does a deep dive into the financial, business and economic side of the cannabis industry. Our team is cultivating the industry’s critical news into one source and providing open source insights and data analysis.

Our History

Green Market Report was founded in 2017 by award winning journalist Debra Borchardt, seasoned public relations expert, Cynthia Salarizadeh, and tech wizard Vince Pitetti. The combination of journalism and financial expertise from Debra with the media & strategic communications, marketing experience and cannabis insight from Cynthia has resulted in a partnership committed to delivering the highest quality financial, business and economic news for the cannabis industry. Green Market Report won a Gold Stevie award in 2020 for Wedsite of the Year.

In addition to award winning news, Green Market Report has established itself as a leader in targeted cannabis conferences that have become must attend events. The Summits consistently sell out and are known for the high level of content and stellar networking opportunities.

Green Market Report was acquired in October of 2021 by Crain Communications and the company is now in full expansion mode. The addition of more writers and editors will increase our content and confirm our position as the best source for cannabis financial news.
