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.
