Think About Cannabis is an educational platform with the mission of bridging the gap between cannabis science and the everyday consumer. We aim to create an open dialogue surrounding the latest scientific research on cannabis with a wide audience, ranging from those who are simply interested in cannabis to industry professionals. Above all else, we value transparency, scientific rigor, and freedom of the press.
Whether you’re a medical or a recreational consumer, there is nothing more critical than being informed to ensure you have the best possible experiences with cannabis. Every two weeks, we deliver the Think About Cannabis newsletter directly to your email inbox featuring timely, informative articles from our site. You can subscribe to our bi-weekly newsletter here.
The content on our platform is divided into four categories — Cannabis Science, Cannabis 101, and Health and Wellness. We recommend starting with the “Cannabis 101” category. In Cannabis 101, you’ll find yourself immersed in a mix of health and science related articles to jump start your educational journey.
Think About Cannabis also has a built-in glossary to guide you through various cannabis, medical, and scientific terminology as you read. On the Headlines page, you’ll find quick, curated snapshots of the latest news in cannabis.
We are open to collaborating with you on blog content and are eager to hear your feedback. To learn more, contact us.
