About Us

Heady NJ is an independent local news site covering cannabis, CBD, and hemp in New Jersey.

We have been closely covering legalization along with the businesses springing forth, the health benefits cannabis provides, the legal issues, and the culture surrounding it. 

We are in favor of legalization and the creation of a just industry that helps patients and homegrow, believing that “you can’t be neutral on a moving train.”
