The Sesh is a Seattle-based cannabis media site that’s about a lot more than cannabis. We believe that people who care about cannabis are good people, endowed with plenty of intelligence and taste, and we write articles that speak to that.

We’re seeking to turn the traditional cannabis media model on its head by focusing less on the cannabis itself and more on all the fun things you can do with it. Food, music, art, the great outdoors—it all goes really well with getting high. Beyond that, we’re dedicated to providing detailed reporting on and analysis of Washington state cannabis policy, to help keep the public informed about the progress of our state’s groundbreaking legalization experiment. And some of the stuff we publish is just good writing for good writing’s sake, because there’s no such thing as too much of that.

Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, the site features the world’s first searchable product reviews database, generated by the knowledgeable bud tenders at Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop, the site’s main sponsor. We think product reviews are especially useful in the age of legal cannabis, because one strain by one brand can wildly different from the same strain by another, and because learning a lot about Lemon Diesel won’t tell you jack shit about whether you should buy cannabis-infused lip balm.

We’re always looking for solid pitches, which you can send to tobias@ikes.com. For instructions on how to format your pitch, and information on what topics we’re especially interested in, check out our pitching guidelines.
