Yes, You Can Advertise a Dispensary on Google Using Google PPC Search Ads

Advertising CBD on Google and Facebook isn’t easy but it certainly is possible.

In fact, several online sources have said that advertising hemp on Google and Facebook is actually possible.

We have been able to advertise cannabis on Facebook and Google, and we have been able to run ad campaigns for our own agency, promoting our cannabis and CBD marketing services using Google Ads.

In this case study, we’ll showcase a Google Ads branded search campaign for a local marijuana dispensary in San Francisco, California, USA.

We were able to get our ads approved, reach over 9,000 highly qualified people, over 1,600 clicks at an average of $0.39/click, and a 5% conversion rate in the first 30-days while coming in under budget!

Due to a mutually signed non-disclosure agreement (NDA) between the client and our agency, the company name and target keywords will not be revealed.

However, all the important stuff – i.e. the Google Ads data and key performance indicators (KPIs) will all be revealed.

Here’s how we achieved a 5% conversion rate (80 conversions), with 9.3k impressions, and a CPA of $8.02, in the first 30-days of the campaign!

Dispensary Advertising – Client Background

Our client is a local cannabis and CBD dispensary in the San Francisco, California region of the USA.

They were interested in growing their business using Google Ads to drive more highly qualified users to their website and to their retail dispensary.

They approached us and asked for our opinion and recommendations to help them achieve their revenue goals.

We suggested a branded Google Ads search campaign, with retargeting using the display ads on the Google Display Network.

The client agreed and we launched an optimized Google Ads campaign, optimized for our client’s dispensary and local market area.
