Latest Research: The Best CBD Oil 2020 Read

Trust isn't given. It's earned.

The goal of Hypothesis Journal is to educate people on the properties of the cannabis plant, showing its uses and limitations while providing unbiased reviews on CBD companies and their products. The CBD market is a budding industry with low regulation. This makes it rampant in low-quality products and incorrect information. Our mission at Hypothesis Journal is to be a part of solving this problem by providing non-biased, evidence-based resources for all topics CBD.

Our team consists of doctors, master cannabis growers, and experienced CBD users. Together, we combine our decades of experience in all the facets of the cannabis industry to give you this comprehensive online resource. We aim to hold CBD companies accountable for the products they are selling and give our readers the tools and information they need to make healthy and confident purchases.

Dr. Ajay Rajesh, MD

Co-Founder & Editor in Chief

I founded Hypothesis Journal in early 2018 after I spotted a common problem. The Internet is home to 1.5 billion websites — yet, I found it quite difficult finding a website that provided accurate information about cannabis with no hidden agendas. 

While there is evidently a lot of free information available online, most of it is hard to trust. The majority of websites in the marijuana industry are funded by wealthy corporations, who always have a specific agenda in mind (resulting in biased and unreliable information). We’re proud to say there are no third party ads on Hypothesis Journal. 

Unbiased, accurate and reliable information about cannabis is hard to find. Here at Hypothesis Journal, we aim to provide it. Our mission is to provide valuable information you can trust. This is why our guides are written/reviewed by medical doctors, based on science and facts.

Hypothesis Journal will always be 100% free to read. All the content we publish is the result of our own elaborate testing and research.

We know trust isn’t given. It’s earned.

Cannabis Educator & Editor

When Ajay described his vision for Hypothesis Journal, it made a lot of sense. A completely free marijuana knowledge base with reliable, science-based information and no hidden agendas. I couldn’t say no.

I’ve dealt with cannabis medically, recreationally and also studied the plant religiously over the course of 10+ years. Upon completion of my Human Nutrition degree, I spent the following 6 years further expanding my knowledge and finding out more about this peculiar yet magical plant.

But most importantly, we don’t want to make Hypothesis Journal about us. Hypothesis Journal was created by us, for you.

We know trust isn’t given. It’s earned.

The CBD industry


Just 10 years ago, the CBD product industry was a subject that was lumped together with the cannabis industry, which has a history of being misused and having incorrect and damaging information spread about it. 

Now, in just 10 short years, CBD has become an incredibly popular supplement. Your grandmother who used to say that CBD products were drugs is now using CBD lotion to help soothe her joint pain. 

However, just because CBD products have become normalized and popular, that does not mean that many regulatory practices or laws are being enforced around the world. An unregulated market makes it easy for companies to produce, advertise, and sell poor-quality or misleading CBD products to the general public.

Our goal is to throw open the door to the CBD industry. We aim to expose poor-quality manufacturers while supporting and highlighting the companies that are making innovations and high-quality products in the CBD industry. We hope to educate the public about what makes a good CBD product and where these products can be found.
