HWG Disclaimer​

The therapeutic potential of cannabis is still largely unexplored. We have to point out that for cannabinoid therapy, reliable evidence of efficacy based on large randomized controlled clinical trials is available for only a few indications. Off-label and no-label prescriptions are therefore common. Therefore, the information presented on our website should not be misunderstood as a promise of healing or as a suggestion to try therapy with cannabis, but is merely for your information to stimulate medical and scientific discourse. We hope to provide you with a serious introduction to the complex topic of cannabinoid therapy on the basis of scientifically sound sources, but do not claim our info to be complete and recommend a deeper self-study of the topic to interested experts. If you notice errors on our pages, we thank you in advance for letting us know. If the medical terms or other content provided here cause you any difficulties in understanding, please ask your doctor or contact us.
