Calling all CBD users! Whether your remedy is fresh flower or concentrate, tincture or vape oil, cannabis or hemp-derived—we’re asking you to share your experience by participating in a user-friendly, interactive research survey. Give us feedback about what’s helped you and what hasn’t. Figuring out how to maximize the therapeutic benefits of cannabis is still a work in progress. This effort is the driving force behind the great laboratory experiment in democracy known as medical and recreational cannabis that’s been unfolding state-by-state and around the world in recent years. Big Pharma can have their overpriced, single-molecule meds. Whole plant cannabis is the people’s medicine – and always will be. Let’s crowd-source our therapeutic knowledge and share what we’ve learned. Let’s democratize the data by taking the Project CBD survey, and asking your friends, colleagues or memberships to do so.
The Project CBD data collection platform will track CBD’s impact on a range of conditions and provide real-time results as a public resource for those who might benefit from cannabis therapeutics.
