Cannabis, Marijuana, Hemp, Hashish, Ganja, and Dagga are just a few of over a thousand different names to describe one legendary — some might say mythical — plant. In recent years this forbidden tree of good and evil has shed its polarizing reputation and developed into its very own legitimate industry.
Today, over 40 countries across virtually every continent have legalized the medical use of cannabis, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and 37 U.S. states. Countries that have legalized the recreational use of cannabis include Canada, Georgia, Malta, Mexico, South Africa, and Uruguay, as well as 18 U.S. states and 2 territories, plus the District of Columbia. Along with mainstream social acceptance, these changes have helped pave the way for a lucrative and fast-growing industry.
There is ongoing medical research as to whether medical marijuana can help treat a number of health conditions including Alzheimer’s disease, Appetite loss, Cancer, Crohn’s disease, HIV/AIDS, Epilepsy, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Multiple sclerosis, Muscle spasms, Neuropathic Pain, Seizures, and others. This has generated plenty of discussions and led to widespread acceptance of this once-taboo trade, particularly given the development of the non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD) cannabinoid as opposed to the famous characteristic high of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Today, all manner of breeders, cultivators, manufacturers and dispensaries, transportation, and delivery companies find themselves in a burgeoning industry. Unsurprisingly, professionals, including lawyers and marketers, as well as packaging and machinery companies have entered the fore to enhance and elevate these plant-touching businesses’ processes.
Web Creators are presented with an opportunity to explore an industry that is evolving into its own profitable niche. The opportunity to become a specialist is there for the taking for both novice and weathered professionals. To introduce you to new opportunities, inspire you with unique creative ideas, and ignite your already sparkling imagination, we present our pick of the top cannabis-inspired websites built with Elementor.

In 1998, actiTube‘s founder got the tip from a doctor friend to filter the smoke from the water pipe with activated charcoal in order to reduce the burden on the airways. So the idea came about to offer all friends of hemp consumption a filter with activated charcoal filtered that reduces harmful substances and improves taste. Today you can get the actiTube activated carbon filters in practically every European head shop.
The hero just hits differently with the floating joint filters combined with clever copy that lights up your curiosity. These elements both hint at the unique experience of using these special filters. The popup menu also comes out of the sidebar again decorated with the brand’s gray and green colors.
A nice shoutout is the locally known “Berlin rolled car” where the metropolitan transport stub is infamously used as a DIY filter. This is nicely juxtaposed with what actiTube offers. The multilingual website also utilizes the slider to showcase how the pipes work.
The colors and logo of the brand are used throughout the website, with the logo, in particular, acting as both a floating background motif and colored icons. There are also subtle scroll zoom effects used on products which add a bit of playfulness.
actiTube blows its competition out of the water with its unique joint filter using a sleek website that is dope in the most favorable sense.

Walter Green CBD
by Rémi Guillemet
As their motto claims, Walter Green’s ambition is to select the best CBD and match it with exceptional flavors. The base of their CBD oils, from organic farming, and their solvent-free extraction method make it possible to obtain cannabinoids of high purity. Thanks to their unique method, they are able to offer particularly faithful and incomparable aromatic profiles.
They say green means envy, but all you’ll feel with this website is a high-end luxury vibe as its shades of green offer glimpses of its exquisite selection of CBD oils. There is also a clear image of the marijuana plant which means visitors can make no mistake about its products’ key ingredients.
The glass dropper bottles move smoothly across the screen yet never distract or appear to put pressure on the viewer’s experience. It feels a bit like sushi on a conveyor belt, never too slow nor too fast. Hovering or clicking on the oil bottles creates a halo effect with a greenish hue that gives somewhat of a mystical sense to the products.
Both the mini icons and the icons near the menu are simple and effective which gives it a professional look, as does the “Made in France” text as well as the logo of an upper-class gentleman. In fact, even the name “Walter Green” exudes a sophisticated brand name.
There’s much more than the firefly green background of Walter Green to make its visitors sparkle with excitement.

If you know your CBDs, it becomes obvious this website aims to offer more flower (options) to the people. There is an uplifting, happy look and feel in the air, with patterns of circles resembling the “o” from oxygen’s periodic element sign.
Using vibrant colors across its products, The Good Level also incorporates this into all its marketing and branding efforts which all tie into its health-centered approach to CBDs. The same colors are also used on its icons as well as sections, pages, and general color scheme.
Hovering over each product creates an interesting pattern around each image indicating the CBD percentage strength of the product. Likewise, each case study has its own color bed on the color scheme, as does the main mega menu. The eye-catching red color “reviews” button similarly draws viewers’ attention to the company’s credibility.
Cultivating, preparing, and extracting the best cannabinoids takes time and expertise, and so too did the joint effort it took to create The Good Level.
