Legal Stuff

Hello. It’s Elizabeth. If you know anything about me, then you know I’m upfront and honest about things, no matter how unpleasant. I am not a lawyer. Since I don’t have any interest in becoming one, here comes some boring information in layman terms.

Website: The purpose of this website is to teach everything I know about health, fitness, nutrition, and Cannabis. And I LOVE to do it!

Terms & Conditions: By using this site you agree to these terms and conditions. Terms and conditions may change and this page will be updated.

Full Disclosure: This website is run for profit. I won’t insult you by giving a list of expenses that it takes to run a website but I hope you are running your website for profit too. This does not affect the content I provide and all opinions expressed are all my own.

Charity: I donate a portion of the profits to a charity that helps get marijuana to Vets. I will be placing a donate button on the site soon.

Affiliate Links: Noted outbound affiliate links will take you to a different website. Clicking these links allows this site to make a small commission if a sale is made at no additional cost to you.  If this makes you uncomfortable, you can open another window and search for the products freely. All posts that use affiliate links will be clearly marked at the beginning and end.

Amazon Affiliate: The Health Cannabist is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for me to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

More Transparency: I accept products and services to review from companies and colleagues. Accepting these products or services do not guarantee they will appear on this site nor does it mean a favorable review.

Opinions: Like it or not I’m (blunt and) honest. The opinions expressed on this site are my own and are not influenced by any affiliations. I only recommend products and services I can vouch for and standby. Occasionally, opinions change and I will do my best to update the site in these circumstances.

Referrals:  Affiliate links are referrals. I only link out to products/companies/services that I have used/tried/tested that I can personally recommend. As a business owner, I pay referral fees as a ‘thank you’ to colleagues and clients that send me a client. Nobody sends me a bill, I am grateful for the business. They send me the business because they believe in me as I believe in the referrals I link out to.

It has no political affiliations except as it relates to policy. It does not endorse any political party or candidate except to add commentary on the subject.

The information gathered here is based on my education and experience in relation to health, fitness, nutrition, and Cannabis and is not considered a substitute for a doctor. Consult the appropriate medical physician to receive medical expert opinions.

Location: The Health Cannabist is governed by the laws of the United States of America and the laws of the State of Maine.

Security: I like to keep my ‘business’ safe too. If you have provided me with any personal information, I promise not to sell, trade, barter, loose, or otherwise misuse your information. I will do everything in my power to keep your information secure and private. Your email is safe with me. I’ll even give you mine: elizabeth@thehealthcannabist.com.

Privacy: By sharing your email with this site you are agreeing to be added to my email list. I use this email to periodically communicate with you. These communications include exclusive content, promotions, updates, and other relevant content. You can remove yourself from this email list by using the contact form.

Accuracy: The accuracy of a particular post is based on the information gathered by and known to me at the time. Especially when it pertains to health, we are learning new things every second of every day. Posts will be updated and archived as necessary.

Respect: I respect the rights of others. Rude and inappropriate comments will be deleted and may result in your account being banned. Just be cool.

Age: This site is intended for users who are in locations where Cannabis/Marijuana is legal for their age. This may vary by State and Country. There is no age limit for medical marijuana patients.

Liability: I have no responsibility for what you do on your own time. I am not liable for any harm you cause or laws you break by following anything expressed on this site. In other words, we are all responsible for our own actions.

Errors: Do not come here and expect perfect grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc. Big favor? If you spot my mistakes, let me know? It’s like walking around all day with spinach stuck in my teeth if everyone assumes someone else with tell me or I don’t care. THANKS!

Stoner Terms: Until about a minute and a half ago, consuming Cannabis was a relative hush hush thing and we never got together to all agree on one name. Here are some of the names you will see me personally use.

I refer to Cannabis as: cannabis | marijuana | weed | pot | reefer | green | herb | mj | grass | bud | medicine | smoke

And it’s consumers: pothead | stoner | smoker

And I call it getting:  high | lit | stoned | blazed | blasted | baked| lifted | dosed

Although many of these terms have societal negative stigmas, I use the terms interchangeably as I see fit. In public, I try to use ‘Cannabis’ and ‘dosing’ because of propaganda surrounding the slang terms but it’s easy to slip into what I grew up with.

One More Warning: Visiting this site could lead to you wasting vast amounts of time on its contents. This could lead to you being smarter than all your friends and family. Something to remember at the dinner table.

If I didn’t cover anything or you have further questions, I can be contacted via the contact page.
