MyMedicine was established by healthcare professionals on the principle that those using cannabis products are better served when industry expertise is combined with elements of scientific discovery.

As our staff collects, organizes, and interprets information, we believe findings should be accessible by anyone who stands to benefit.

A Letter From Our President


What is MyMedicine?

Cannabis culture represents freedom. Freedom of expression, freedom of mind and body. Medical culture adheres strictly to the scientific method.

MyMedicine serves to bridge these two cultures. Despite different philosophies, both are dedicated to the well-being of the consumer. And when my own health condition progressed, cannabis proved helpful - not acting exclusionary to accepted treatments, rather complementary.

That is my story. 

Discovering the healing potential of cannabis components is gaining support, but there is a void unless governing bodies and healthcare establishments wholly engage. 

MyMedicine offers a new approach.

Contrary to popular belief, there are a number of individuals conducting high-level cannabis research. We apply the findings of thought-leaders in a consistent manner, followed by collecting detailed feedback. 

Day after day.

Stories drove me to explore cannabis as medicine. Shortly thereafter, doubts evolved into sincerest acceptance. The therapeutic properties of the plant's components are truly unique - at times eliciting euphoria, while generally safe. 

To those using cannabis 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.

Rony Sinharoy, PharmD
