About the Site
The sole purpose of this website is to serve the medical cannabis patient and cannabis community at large.
Integrity and accuracy are the first priorities of this site. Equally important is the site's use of humor and satire as a conduit for useful and entertaining content.
The cannabis product reviews on this site adhere to a consistent set of defined criteria. These reviews strive to provide the reader with specific and accurate data organized for quick and easy readability, which can be found in the "Analysis" section of every review.
The analyses of these products are based on the reviewer's 3+ decades of experience with cannabis. The reader may or may not agree with the assessment of a product. However, readers can be assured that each review is designed to be as objective as is humanly possible and is not influenced in any way by the product's manufacturer.
IMPORTANT: The effects, duration and peak times noted in these reviews can vary from person to person, sometimes significantly. The information offered in each review may not always reflect the experiences of others. One's interpretation of a product's euphoric effects, for example, is subjective to some degree.
