We cover the growing cannabis industry

We can’t sell you weed, but we do deliver buzz.

Alongside legalization on Oct. 17, 2018, we launched the oz. as a website and email newsletter out of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.

We’ve since published six magazines.

Meet the Founder

David Wylie | Publisher

Hi! I’m a B.C.-based journalist and founder of the oz. I’ve been working in newspapers in some capacity or another for about 20 years. I love print, which is part of the reason why I publish a magazine about cannabis.

I’m an active freelance writer, with Boulevard, Trends, The Daily Courier, and Castanet regularly publishing my stories and columns. I have been published in the biggest newspapers in Canada, including the National Post, Montreal Gazette, Calgary Herald and The Province. Over the course of my media career I’ve been a publisher, news director, editor, reporter, designer, and photographer. I’ve covered news in Toronto, Ottawa, Kelowna—and everywhere in between. I’ve specialized in technology, video games, wineries, weed, energy, climate, courts, crime, and more.

I also know my way around the corporate communications world through years of experience as an advisor, spokesman, and strategist. I work as a freelance copywriter and sponsored content creator.

If you are in need of web design, graphic design, social media management, and/or crisis communications, I can help you through David Wylie Media + Communication.

Support what we’re doing by helping us test out our online store. We are currently selling our classic trucker hat at cost.
