Marijuana affiliate programs are few and far between, but can be well worth your time and effort. With more and more states legalizing recreational and medicinal marijuana, the demand for weed is continually surging. By getting started now, you'll be in a position to capitalize on the billions of dollars in marijuana revenue.
1. Growing Elite Cannabis
Growing Elite Cannabis, also known as How To Grow Weed 420, offers an unprecedented 57% commission rate. Yes, you read that right! You'll earn $32.50/sale with this program. Well, that's what you'll earn for your tier-1 sales. It goes without saying that this is an info products. That's about the only way a company could afford to give out such huge commissions.
Another thing that sets the How To Grow Weed 420 affiliate program apart is the length of their cookies. If you refer a visitor, but they don't buy right away, you have no need to worry. You will still get credit for the sale as long as they make a purchase within the next year. Yes, a full year. Most programs will only give you credit if a sale is made withing the next 30-90 days.
Lastly, there is no minimum payout requirement! That is just awesome!
2. I Love Growing Marijuana
As an ILGM affiliate, you earn 20% commission on every item someone purchases through your referral link. The funnel for this program is different than the traditional affiliate model. They offer a free eBook called the Marijuana Grow Bible which teaches people how to grow their own weed. After reading the book, the customer should be stoked and ready to grow their own cannabis. Of course, the customer returns to ILGM to purchase their seeds and other growing accessories, and that's where you earn the big bucks.
3. Got Vape
With the Got Vape affiliate program, you'll earn 50% (net) commissions. This is not the same as a lot of the other programs. Most programs tell you how much commission you make off the total sale amount. The commission rate for Got Vape goes off of the profit of each item.
It's harder to calculate how much you'll make this way, and it gives the company the upper hand. If their costs go up, their profit goes down, and so does your commission. I much prefer affiliate programs that tell you how much of the gross sale you'll receive. They also have a $100 minimum balance required before you can receive a payment, which is common.
4. Crop King Seeds
I have to tip my hat to them, they're great at what they do. They sell seeds like it's nobody's business. Crop King Seeds are massively popular, so there's plenty of opportunity for affiliates. Anytime a company has a proven track record, it's easier to promote their products. They offer 20% teir-1 commissions and 5% tier-2 commissions.
The minimum payout is $200, which is above average. As long as you plan on moving a bunch of seeds, it shouldn't be a problem for you. If you don't think you'll be able to get past $200 in commissions, then don't bother with this program. Seriously though, you should be able to breeze past $200 in commissions once you get your footing. If you're not planning on making a bunch of sales, then don't waste your time signing up. There are easier ways to make chump change.
5. My Weed Seeds
My Weed Seeds is a multi-tier affiliate program. Multi-tier means you not only earn commission on the sales you generate, but you'll also get a small commission from the sales of everyone who signed up under you. You'll receive 20% commission on the sales you generate.
You will receive a 4% commission on all of your tier-2 sales. There are 10 tiers to the My Weed Seeds affiliate program, ranging from 20% to 0.8% commission. Having 10 tiers is freaking amazing and very generous. Some programs don't even have two tiers.
6. Dr Seeds
Okay, so here's the skinny on Dr. Seeds. They pay 15% commission and have a nice streamlined site. They sell 5 seeds for $50 and 10 seeds for $80. Boom! That's it.
Their website is pretty awesome, and I'm not talking about looks. They provide a ton of information about each strain which is much appreciated. They focus their energy where it counts.

Well, if you haven't already decided on which type of product you want to promote, now would be a good time to choose. Once you've chosen your product, sign up for one or more affiliate programs and get started on promoting. You don't have to have a website to promote products for a company. You can start a free blog on a site like blogger.com or WordPress.com, or you can just build up a big following on a social media outlet like YouTube or Twitter.
