Mission Statement: Rational Cannabis provides accurate, unbiased clinical and recreational information for the adult human consumption of cannabis. We strive to be fair, realistic and balanced in all postings.

Cannabis has one of the most wide-ranging lists of benefits found in a single substance on the planet. This concentration of power is one of the reasons it is a financial threat to the existing pharmaceutical industry. In places where cannabis is legal, you can literally grow your own medicine at a very low cost. See cannabis uses

The case can be made that there are existing drugs that work as well as cannabis for most (if not all) of the diseases that cannabis benefits. Additionally, the argument can be made that the benefits of using cannabis are limited by the psychotropic side effects associated with it. See problems with cannabis
