Are cannabis-related sites an affilate no-no?

I created a fantastic, content rich cannabis-related site. The trouble I'm having now is finding sources for paid clicks and places to run ads.

Facebook will not accept ads for anything cannabis so that's out and I was hoping to go that route, for now.

The major paid clicks sources I've contacted either will not get back to me of will not deal with me, at all.

Am I just to early for all this?

BTW: I'm in the US and the site is geared to US viewers.

This is actually a hard niche to promote as the topic is usually considered taboo for most sites like Facebook. What you can do is to promote the site to related websites. Try to ask them if they accept paid ads on their sites.

Thanks for the reply. I am trying to get reciprocal links between like-minded sites but there are so few right now. I may end up having to rely on organic search engine visitors. That will come but will take time.

Question:

One well known paid click supplier said my site was not the type their clicks will work for. Here is his exact statement "our traffic is primarily targeted for bizopp or the make money online niche. Won't work for your website :)"

Even though I have 8 different affiliate companies represented and 13 Amazon links. Then, the more I thought about it what I think he was getting at was my site was not a "how to make money on line" type of site.

One of those sites that wants to sell you a how-to PDF or video on how to make money on-line. So people who want to make money online selling info to others on how to make money online.

Am I correct in this thinking. Is this the primary focus for using paid clicks?

Most paid ads are about business or internet marketing or affiliate marketing niches only. If you are not targeting thee niches, then you won't get accepted.

Thus, I suggested to target related websites only and inquire if they offer paid ads.

Yeah, it's such a shame that cool legitimate cannabis sites can't be promoted on international or national sites that often. It's time for the weed revolution!!
