HOW WE DO OUR RANKINGS
We spend a lot of time in reviewing products and services in the marijuana and CBD industry. The bestmarijuanaguide.com Rankings are based on the synthesis of internal research, web research, client reviews, on-site visits of agencies, methodologies, proprietary solutions, and industry conference appearances.
Any Rankings are ultimately based on subjective opinions; our Rankings provide a glimpse into who we believe would rank first or second based on our exhaustive research process. We believe there is no single product or service that is the right fit for all potential buyers.
The Rankings are strictly our opinions based on our research process.
These Rankings are based on aggregated ratings of factors which can be found in our evaluation criteria section. The Rankings are usually measured on a series of scores that we assign on five factors within each category. The scores for each factor are assigned based on our analysis. Only the top scoring agencies make a given list.
* The Rankings only include those that we cover with our analysis. There are certainly many more products or services than the select few that are included in our rankings. We aim to cover the best service providers and we will continue to add more over time. Please dont hesitate to let us know about a product or service you think we should highlight on our list.
* We charge a standard fee from vendors for our time to evaluate. If a product manufacturer or service doesnt have the finances available and we deem them to be a star performer based on research done on another, we may still highlight them on our Rankings list. Vendors may also commit funds towards the continued research and development and marketing of the bestmarijuanaguide.com brand to further assist buyers make more informed decisions.
* The Rankings dont currently include a way for users to provide their own recommendations for where vendors should rank and which should be added to or removed from the list. We want your opinions to count, and we will be adding user recommendation tools to our Rankings in the future.
In addition to the five factors highlighted in each category we also have multiple soft factors which we use in our Rankings. Is the vendor a fly-by-night operator? Do they attend conferences? Speak at them?
Are they hiring employees or laying them off? Have they enabled us to talk to their customers and are they being transparent by showing us their results? We know that the best way to create useful Rankings is to get as many opinions as possible from customers of marijuana or CBD providers or suppliers.
This is why we use the aggregated approach.
We hope you find our Rankings useful. We continually update them based on the latest reviews and information which we gather. As new vendors become involved, they are added to the Rankings and affect how places stack up against one another. Check back periodically to see how the Rankings are shaping up.
