About

Currently based in Vancouver, B.C., I am a freelance cannabis writer, award-winning journalist, author, photographer, and videographer with a passion for social and environmental issues. Some people like to write stories; I like to deliver the whole package. Documentary story-telling is my jam.

I strongly believe in the power yielded by cannabis, and have experienced the benefits it can provide firsthand. Beyond that, my former role as the the Georgia Straight‘s first-ever cannabis editor opened my eyes to the multitude of ways cannabis can be used to improve health and well-being—but also to the incredible unfairness of prohibition. I’ve covered a wide variety of topics within the cannabis beat and have gained a deep understanding of the inner workings of Canada’s burgeoning weed industry.

I’ve also recently finished writing my first book, The Little Book of Cannabis: How Marijuana Can Improve Your Lifewhich will be published by Greystone Books in October 2018.

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.
