ASCM Publications

Publications of the American Society of Cannabis Medicine

The American Society of Cannabis Medicine (ASCM) currently publishes several titles on a wide variety of topics—from cannabis advocacy and health policy to practice excellence. The Society’s publications reflect the diversity of clinical and topical issues facing today’s practicing cannabis physician. The publications and specialty articles help members stay abreast of the latest developments in many important areas.


Journal of the American Society of Cannabis Medicine

The Journal of the American Society of Cannabis Medicine (JASCM) is the official education  and practice-area publication of the American Society of Cannabis Medicine (ASCM). JASCM’s goal is providing readers rapid retrieval of the highest quality information relevant to the responsible use of cannabis in medicine.

JASCM is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal publishing contributions on all aspects of the practice area. These contributions include original articles, collective reviews, experimental investigations with clear clinical relevance, and a physician-at-work section. JASCM is a membership benefit for all active ASCM members.


Practice Excellence

ASCM’s Practice Excellence—a twice-monthly email newsletter—is the primary way ASCM members obtain timely news about the medical cannabis practice area. Delivered on Fridays, Practice Excellence articles offer industry news concerning medical and practice issues and practical ideas about patient service, marketing, emerging technologies, legislation, office management, innovations, community relations, and new products and services.

Coming in Winter 2020 Practice Excellence Online will allow readers to instantly access the “member only” ASCM web area for further details on articles, resources, industry employment, and member news. Links to other online publications also provide a wider perspective on issues facing doctors involved with cannabis medicine. An unlimited number of your practice staff can receive the newsletter at each membership location, so members are encouraged to sign up staff. All ASCM membership levels are eligible to receive the newsletter as a member benefit. To sign up, contact the ASCM Member Concierge Services at, or call 202-380-9575, ext. 825.
