How to take part
Patients - Find out if CBD is right for you
• Ask your caregiver/provider for CBD-rich Cannabis. Many dispensary operators assume that demand is is a function of psychoactive effect.
• If possible, grow your own.
• After medicating with CBD-rich Cannabis, use Survey #1 to evaluate the effects.
• Discuss your Cannabis use with your doctor(s) —unless you think doing so might adversely affect the relationship.
• Correspond with us —send news items for the CBDiary.
As a result of Prohibition, virtually nothing about Cannabis and the body’s own cannabinoid receptor system is taught in U.S. medical schools. Doctors in the Society of Cannabis Clinicians have learned—from patients and from one another—about the range of conditions for which high-THC Cannabis provides relief, and understand the possible advantages of CBD-rich strains.
Physicians - Contact the Society of Cannabis Clinicians
A growing group of doctors have educated themselves by listening to Cannabis-using patients, keeping up with the medical and scientific literature, and attending conferences and/or meetings of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC). The SCC holds quarterly meetings to share findings and observations. The Dec. 11 SCC meeting in San Francisco featured a talk by Sean McAllister, PhD, on the potential of CBD in treating breast cancer.
The SCC is planning a rigorous data-collection effort to assess the safety and efficacy of CBD-rich Cannabis. To learn more, visit the SCC here.Top
Dispensaries - Provide and promote CBD-rich Cannabis
Project CBD welcomes collaboration with medical marijuana dispensaries which, while competing with each other for market share, are unified in their commitment to researching the medical potential of Cannabis.
Participating dispensaries will:
• Provide member patients with CBD-rich herb, edibles, and tinctures.
• Encourage users of CBD products to take the SCC survey.
• Encourage member-growers to produce CBD-rich herb, edibles and tinctures.
• Facilitate data collection from patients who medicate with CBD-rich Cannabis.
• Educate the community-at-large that non-psychoactive Cannabis may ease pain, inflammation, and other serious medical conditions.

Sponsoring our efforts - Practicing Research Without a Grant
The advent of CBD-rich Cannabis gives us —the medical marijuana movement— a chance to live up to our name. Project CBD was launched by two journalists who believe that a serious, honest data-collection effort is called for, whether or not cannabidiol turns out to have unique benefits and benign side effects.
We are counting on support from the community to sustain our work. The logos of participating dispensaries and other Project CBD allies appear on this site. Their involvement is much appreciated.
