From our Founder

We here at MDherb have created an organization that we believe fulfills the promise of medical cannabis information on the Internet. We provide credible information, supportive communities, and in-depth reference material about health subjects that matter to you. We are a source for original and timely health information as well as material from well known thought leaders.

The MDherb content staff blends award-winning expertise in journalism, content creation, community services, expert commentary, and medical review to give our users a variety of ways to find what they are looking for.

Our board-certified physicians, award-winning journalists, and trained community moderators are solely dedicated to your daily information experience on MDherb. Our content staff includes individuals who hold advanced degrees in journalism, medical illustration, health communications, clinical informatics, nursing, and medicine. MDherb verifies the qualifications of all medical professionals on the site; including health professionals, experts, editorial professionals and contributors with a specialty license. Health Professionals, including those who write, review and edit our editorial content as well as Community Experts, undergo credential verification by a third party.

Most of us at MDherb have spent our entire careers dedicated to helping people find the health and medical information, support, and services they need — even before there was an Internet! We are dedicated to providing quality health information and to upholding the integrity of our editorial process.

As serious as we are about credibility, we also know that at times, health information can and should be engaging, exciting, and entertaining.

We are committed to improving our site. We will continue to publish even more content, communities, and services to help make your life better, to help you find your way when faced with alternative medicine healthcare decisions, and to help you feel better about your health and that of your family.
