It’s fascinating how many people make a living by posting videos on YouTube. Tutorials, family vacations, product reviews and other ridiculous antics make people rich overnight.
But have you heard of weedtubers?
These are people getting paid to smoke marijuana and post it on the internet.
That’s right — getting paid to get baked.
Read on to learn about some of the most famous weedtubers around.
Joel Hradecky: King of Weedtubers
Considered the king of the weedtubers, Joel Hradecky has over 1.2 million followers, which he’s amassed in only 4 short years.
His YouTube channel CustomGrow420 showcases a variety of videos including him trying to smoke a gram of THC oil. This video racked up over 1.3 million views.
Which is almost as much as the 1.5 million who viewed Hradecky’s seven-minute coughing fit following his attempt. Seems like Hradecky’s success thrives, in part, on the psychological idea that humans enjoy watching other humans suffer.
But this cannabis king doesn’t just toke up and make viewers laugh (or scoff) for the love of entertainment. Thousands of fans actually turn to Hradecky for recommendations on bongs, strands of cannabis and other accessories.
If you’re mainly looking for advice and information on smoking weed, the different ways it can be smoked, or weed prices, Young is your man.
On his YouTube channel StrainCentral, Young smokes marijuana anywhere from 3 -10 times a day, right alongside his viewers.
Young thinks that sometimes his fans are just, “looking for a smoking buddy.”
In similar fashion to other weedtubers like Hradecky, Young also posts videos showcasing attempts at smoking large quantities of THC in a short period of time and the horrifying effects.
With over 373,000 subscribers, Young clearly makes a really good smoking buddy!
Being a weedtuber isn’t just for the boys. Don’t worry ladies, you can be famous for smoking weed on YouTube too!
