When Twitter first announced changes to its advertising policy in February, Twitter users criticized It looked like some features weren’t working yet. Users complained that features like radius targeting and conversion tracking weren’t working yet. Some features seem to be in beta stage.
In theory, the new changes could solve some of these problems. “Going forward, Twitter will allow advertisers to promote brand preferences and cannabis-related informational content for CBD, THC, and cannabis-related products and services,” the blog post announcement reads.
The post continued, “We look forward to helping more customers unlock the power of Twitter Ads to connect with cannabis conversations and move their businesses forward.”

Gradual relaxation of cannabis regulations
Twitter announced significant changes to its cannabis policy in February, saying it would allow THC, CBD, and similar ads in the US.
This change was first reported by AdCann. “Previously, only CBD topical brands were allowed to advertise on his Twitter platform,” AdCann said.
