How Do We Make Money?

The quality content and unbiased reviews of products we include here are made possible by advertisements and affiliate links on our site. And we take this very seriously here. We don’t just recommend products just for the money. Instead, the products we feature are only those that we trust and test ourselves.

By purchasing through our affiliate links, we make a small commission at no additional cost to you. These commissions are what support everyone and what puts everything together from hosting, domain, to SSL certificates– it’s what ensures our customer’s information is safe and secure.

Composed of CBD and Hemp specialists, you can guarantee that our contents are unbiased, accurate, and medically reviewed and approved by doctors.

Here are the amazing experts who make AmericanMarijuana happen:

Steve Wynn Kubby

Steven Wynn "Steve" Kubby

Founder

Steve began experiencing symptoms of hypertension and palpitations at the age of 23 and was diagnosed with a rare, fatal form of adrenal cancer called pheochromocytoma. He’s undergone surgery including chemotherapy to remove the tumor and has been smoking marijuana solely and maintained a healthy diet in the next 25 years after his medical records show that his cancer had metastasized to his liver and beyond. To his doctor’s surprise, he was still alive because the symptoms of the pheochromocytoma were “arrested”.

His experience played a huge part in the drafting and passage of California Proposition 215, which was a ballot initiative to legalize medical marijuana and was later approved by voters in 1996.
