X. Benefits vs Risks
Our goal is to help patients improve medical conditions while sharing how they have used cannabis successfully.
A. Benefits
Sharing one's cannabis story provides the necessary data on how cannabis is successfully changing medical conditions. While research is being denied medical cannabis, patients are the only ones that can provide data on how health conditions are improving, healing or being cured. Journaling one’s experience keeping track of strains, consumption, medications, and symptoms have been shown to be beneficial in determining proper treatments.

There are no known risks to using this Site, but there is a possibility that users may feel uncomfortable sharing information online. We give Members the option to choose anonymously or openly to share their story and contribute to the study. It is possible that a Member could be identified using information shared on Effective Cannabis (and/or in conjunction with other data sources).
