MACE Media Group Magazines Are Now Digital-only & Free to All Readers

Pismo Beach, CA, September 22, 2020 — MACE Media Group, one of the nation’s largest diversified media and information companies in the cannabis space, announced today that all of their magazines will now be free and digital-only.

The COVID-19 era has significantly altered the way readers prefer to consume content. After talking with different stakeholders, MACE Media decided that digital-only delivery would provide the safest method of readership due to health and sanitation issues.

The decision to go digital-only is accompanied by zero cost to readers, opening up a new portfolio of rich content that will be available to all. As of today, there will be no barriers to accessing any issues of MACE Media magazines, which include Terpenes & Testing, Extraction Magazine, CBD Health & Wellness, and Hemp Farmer. Print copies of the magazines will be available in limited supply upon direct request.

This decision is permanent for all magazines under the company’s banner, except for The Journal of Cannabinoid Medicine, which will be printed twice a year at a subscription rate.

MACE Media Group CEO Celeste Miranda is greatly looking forward to sharing the company’s diversified, in-depth content with current and future readers within the cannabis industry.

“We’ve all faced new challenges within the past year, and the team at MACE has quickly adapted to this new world,” she said. “The decision to go digital-only made the most sense to us. In addition to furthering the reach of our content, the cost savings allowed us to remove subscription fees and make everything open access.”

For readers who are interested in accessing current and past issues of each magazine, there is an option to view these on desktop, as well as on apps for each magazine through Google Play or iTunes. The company is also working on building a dedicated app allowing access to all publications in one place.
