Lights Out for Cannabis Brand Incredibles at Instagram

Incredibles Instagram

In what has become an all-too-common occurrence, Instagram has shut down another cannabis company’s account, Incredibles, which is owned by Colorado-based Medically Correct, LLC. This post on Instagram tells it all:

IG dropped our account at 16k

Their new Instagram account has fewer than 500 followers, a loss of over 15K.  Facebook, which owns Instagram, allows companies to have pages but typically prohibits them from paying to “boost” posts.  Cannabis dispensaries and brands should be careful investing too much time and expense in their social media presence and consider friendlier platforms, like MassRoots.
