Our Editorial Process

LeaveWeed.org is run independently, without outside influence or bias. All information provided on the site is sourced, cited, and based on scientific evidence.

However, we know that when it comes to sensitive topics like addiction, happiness, and living a sober life, there is a lot of conflicting and misleading information out there.

Whilst there is naturally some personal opinion involved in the process of recovering from weed addiction, we have established a number of policies and processes to ensure all our content meets the highest levels of quality and factual accuracy possible.

We understand that different experts often have different advice on topics we write about, and we openly and neutrally cover these viewpoints.

Ultimately, LeaveWeed.org is here to provide you with a wide variety of resources, tools, and ideas to help you in your journey of freedom from cannabis. We hope it serves that purpose well.


LeaveWeed.org is a free resource operated by healthcare professionals and researchers providing trusted information about quitting or cutting down on the use of marijuana. Our goal is to provide researched, fact-checked information on the use of cannabis and provide advice and guidance for those looking to cut back on their usage or quit.


All of our content is written, fact-checked, cited, and reviewed by qualified writers, editors, and medical professionals. Michael Griffin is the operating manager and primary author of LeaveWeed.org who creates our content strategy and drafts the first revisions of our articles and resources before they are handed over to other healthcare professionals on our editorial board for quality assurance purposes.

Review Process
