About The Medical Cannabis Community

A minority owned, mission-driven company working to inform, raise awareness and expand access to cannabis worldwide.  

Education, Advocacy & Awareness With Purpose

The medical cannabis community is a media-based company empowering its members to achieve their highest level of aspiration through advocacy, education, and community-based action where we connect people via live interactions and real-time industry analysis. With our free website, community platforms and digital services, members receive exclusive insights from our industry experts, and dedicated media team capturing the fast-growing movement around cannabis.

Inspiring change through stories from members of our community.

OUR MISSION

 

We are here because we see the beginning of a new world. One where we envision medical cannabis can be respectably viewed as a first option, rather than a last resort.

Our purpose is to connect and empower people in search of relief, support, information, a better quality of life, or just a place to belong, by providing access to a wealth of education, experiences, events, and meaningful relationships.

To us, cannabis is a global human rights issue, and why we aspire to be highly regarded as a trusted resource to fight for the greater good.

Our people are those who believe in and embody our cause.

What Makes The Medical Cannabis Community Special

 

The Medical Cannabis Community is a place where people from all over come to discover and think differently about the many benefits and opportunities cannabis and its industry has to offer. It is where people share stories that inspire, and give others a sense of shared purpose and camaraderie. It is where we cultivate a culture around caring, compassion, and community involvement, and it is a place where we are collectively advancing the movement and social cause for justice around cannabis through community development, market research, and educational multimedia content. Our brand is a symbol of our shared values and beliefs. 

We work to establish a culture of inclusivity, support, learning, diversity, individual empowerment, and inspiration for community action. With over 20,000 members across our multi-state communities and an additional 38,000 fans across the nation, we are recognized as a top resource in education and connective engagement for patients, advocates, caregivers, doctors, state representatives, lawmakers, industry members, job seekers and more.
