About Us

We take a science-based approach to every issue surrounding cannabis: from safety to cooking to medical research, and make all of that information digestible and usable.


We’re committed to making sure this information is accessible to anyone who needs it — be it to relieve their own suffering, that of their loved ones, or anyone just looking to learn a bit more.


Our values

The criminalization of cannabis has robbed countless people of their freedoms, livelihoods, and opportunities, leaving intergenerational scars across communities of color and the Global South. Widespread stigmatization, prohibition, and propaganda has also meant that millions of people have been denied access to the therapeutic benefits of the cannabis plant — often with tragic results. We believe that one modest yet fundamental step in beginning to right those wrongs involves educating patients, the medical profession, decisionmakers, and the general public not only about the benefits of cannabis, but also the often-unseen harms caused by decades of prohibition.

The Cannigma approach

1
First, we research.
Everything starts with science. Our research
team digs into medical conditions and treatments,
pressing questions in the cannabis space, and
promising areas of development to identify points
for focus. The inception of most articles on
The Cannigma start with hours of research,
heated discussions, and consultations
with experts.
2
Next, we write.
Once we’ve chosen a topic, we match
it with an expert writer. Some of our
editorial staff are cannabis or medical
experts turned writers, some writers
who specialize in cannabis. All are
authorities in their
respective fields.
3
Then, it’s time to edit.
Editing at Cannigma is more than dotting i’s
and crossing t’s. This is where research and
expertise joins with journalistic values to make
sure every word is scientifically-backed and makes
perfect sense. We check and double-check our
sources and resources, run everything medical by
a doctor, nurse, or pharmacologist, and constantly
update our content with each new discovery
and breakthrough.
4
Final touches.
Every word you read, video you watch
and podcast you enjoy has been reviewed
by a cannabis fact checker, an experienced
editor, and for medical content — a medical
professional. Once that’s done, our production
team gets everything online just so, from
images and videos to tiny technical nuances.
All that’s left is for you to read, learn,
and feel better.
