Leafwell is a platform for connecting patients from around the world to physicians who can give advice on cannabis and cannabinoid-based medications. For those who live in California, we provide recommendations and medical marijuana cards for those who qualify for the state’s medical cannabis program.
So, why does Leafwell exist, and what is our purpose? Leafwell exists because there is a serious dearth of well-written, easy-to-understand serious scientific information on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and the potential of cannabis, cannabinoids and terpenoids as medicine – for both patients and doctors. Much of the media sensationalizes the effects of cannabis, whether positive or negative, and this site hopes to clear up misinformation.
Leafwell’s other, perhaps bigger purpose is to give access to medical information to patients in places where they may have difficulty accessing such information or speaking to a doctor or healthcare professional about using cannabis as medicine. Leafwell is connected to some of the leading voices in cannabis and cannabinoid research, and is dedicated to getting as accurate, up-to-date information as possible to patients, their caregivers and doctors.
