Why Cannabis
Is Medicine

A guide to understanding medical marijuana.


Medical Cannabis presents huge potential for personalized medicine due to the unique way it interacts with our individual endocannabinoid system (ECS). The cannabis plant could help us develop some of the safest, most well-tolerated medications available for otherwise hard-to-treat conditions, as well as preventatives for optimal health. This book takes a look existing medical evidence and patient testimonies to understand what conditions cannabis could be useful for and why.

This book answers the essential questions for taking medical marijuana.

  • How do I find the right product?
  • What’s the right dosage for me?
  • What are the side-effects?
  • Is cannabis addictive?
  • What am I supposed to feel when I take it?
  • Can I use cannabis to replace any other medications?

Our Approach

What makes cannabis medicine? Whilst the underlying science is complex, the answer is simple:


Cannabis (or cannabinoids) can help us modulate the human body’s “infrastructure” or “mainframe”, the endocannabinoid system (ECS), and its ability to stay in balance (homeostasis). There are thought to be many conditions associated with an “out-of-sync” ECS, and we aggregate existing scientific literature, ask experts, and run through the biology of the cannabis plant in order to answer the question in as understandable a manner as possible.

Basic Facts

  • Every U.S. state with a medical marijuana program (MMP) has seen a reduction in opioid overdoses.
  • The endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays an important role in the development of many injuries, illnesses and diseases.
  • Working out which cannabinoid-terpenoid profiles work for specific conditions could help us make safer, more tolerable medications.
