One of the world's largest scientific groups, the American Chemical Society (ACS), has decided to facilitate cannabis research and develop medical marijuana testing standards through the creation of an official cannabis subdivision called the Cannabis Chemistry Subdivision. This move is significant because it shows the scientific world is taking acknowledging how valuable marijuana is, and the creation of medical marijuana testing standards will not only reduce lab testing inconsistencies that currently plague the marijuana industry, but it will also help mmj patients better understand their medication so they can achieve optimum relief. The group realizes that it may not be able to unify standards nationwide due to varying state laws, but ACS hopes the information it collects will help government officials in crafting sensible medical marijuana laws in the first place. 

While the group "intends to encourage the development of professional relationships, produce a research symposium and help craft best practices guidelines that could give the industry some much-needed standardization," the society will not be conducting research itself. Previously, medical marijuana patients were unsure of whether or not their medication was lab tested, and when it was, the testing results and product labels were often inaccurate. Now, ACS is legitimizing the lab-tested cannabis industry so that medical marijuana patients can feel the comfort of knowing the composition of their medication. This information is important when journaling in our app so that we can collect the precise data necessary to the development of important guidelines that will help mmj patients dose accurately. It is for this reason that tracking your dosing regimen using lab-tested medical grade marijuana in the CannaBest Medical app is of the utmost importance. By journaling in our app on a daily basis, you are anonymously contributing to a better understanding of medical marijuana and helping to legitimize and standardize the industry.
