A Letter From Our President
What is MyMedicine?
Cannabis culture represents freedom. Freedom of expression. Freedom of mind and body. Prevailing medical culture is rigid and regimented. Progress rests upon extensive peer-reviewed analysis.
MyMedicine serves to bridge these two cultures. Despite different perspectives, both share dedication to the consumer. And when my own health condition progressed, cannabis proved helpful -- acting not exclusionary to accepted remedies, rather complementary.
That is my story.
Discovering the full therapeutic potential of cannabis components is gaining support, but until governing bodies and healthcare establishments wholly engage, a void will remain.
Flippant acceptance is not enough. Great strides in modern medicine are achieved as a result of the scientific method. MyMedicine offers a new approach to cannabis care that stems from realizing benefits, alongside a systematic process by which those benefits are achieved.
There are a number of individuals conducting high-level cannabis research. Unfortunately, conclusions drawn from their efforts are rarely implemented. The findings of thought-leaders should be applied in a consistent manner, followed by collecting detailed feedback.
Day after day.
Testimonials drove me to investigate cannabis. Shortly thereafter, skepticism evolved into sincerest acceptance. The medicinal properties of the plant's components are truly unique; eliciting euphoria alongside relief, while generally safe.
To those using cannabis-derived products: document experiences and ask questions. There is an abundance of underutilized information available. Do not sit idle as your therapy presses forward. Until science draws near, you are the driver.
Our data is a collection of your stories, and we look forward to listening.
