Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics: Evaluating the Quality of Sources

Why is evaluating resources important?

The openness of the internet has advantages and disadvantages. While it is wonderful to have so much information available at the touch of a button, a lot of that information comes from low-quality sources.

The materials on this page provide guidance on how to evaluate resources such as websites and journal articles.
