HQ’s 17-years of diligent data gathering ensures both buyers and vendors in these industries mutual growth and security. HQ’s Canna Dispensary Supply is your new go-to source!

Headquest (HQ) is a monthly business-to-business magazine that has been serving a broad range of counterculture retailers since 1998. HQ goes to smoke/gift shops, hydroponic stores, cannabis dispensaries, adult stores, convenience stores, and similar retailers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Look for HQ Europe/U.K. coming soon!

HQ has a monthly circulation of approximately 16,000. As HQ is distributed to retail outlets only, it has become a trusted buying tool and information source for these retailers. HQ is also distributed at all major trade shows. Retailers find HQ’s unique insights into our industry via full-length articles and product spotlights, always refreshing and informative. In addition, HQ provides readers with first-hand, successful business practices by featuring a thriving retail store every month.
