GRAM Launches Improved Website

Published

on

The entire team at Grass Roots America Magazine is excited to release our new and improved website! We invite you to explore our new look and layout!

When we first launched the magazine, our focus was on the quality of the cannabis education presented in our print and digital issues. This meant that our website layout was the not our main priority in the very first stages of bringing great research about medicine to the world. Our original website was, at the time, intended to act as a gateway to the magazine, and it worked.

It worked so well, our views of the magazine went global and we are still expanding. Because of this, we knew we needed to provide more digital content to our readership, with a layout that was both visually driven and easy to navigate. In our design process, we experimented with  several layouts and features, resulting in many drafts that were then judged and critiqued by our design team and IT specialists.

After several rounds of updating the design by adding or removing certain features, the GRAM team was given the final approval from our Founder and CEO, Nancy Moss, and the new and improved Grass Roots America Magazine website was born!

Our new layout is more than just visually appealing. It draws your gaze to eye catching graphics that highlight the main topic of each article, encouraging readers to click and learn more. Then, each article presents current scientific and medical cannabis information, supported by cutting edge research and commentary from some of today’s leading experts in cannabis.

In addition to sharing great research about medicine, our new website also has a Cooking Corner, featuring infused recipes. You can also keep up to date with where our team will be in the world by checking out our calendar of Events. You can even meet our team at an event near you!

We hope you enjoy your new website and look forward to sharing great research about medicine as we grow into the future.

Rylie Maedler

Rylie is another well known female fighter for cannabis as a medicine. Rylie was also featured in our newest Children’s Issue, and her full story can be read here. For those of you who may have not yet heard of Rylie’s incredible story, she began fighting for her life at the age of seven years old. She successfully survived her condition thanks to cannabis, and has made several accomplishments over these past few years. Her efforts would see Delaware pass Rylie’s Law, which allows children to use cannabis oils for medicinal reasons, and she also pushed  legislation forward allowing cannabis medicine in schools, and adding autism as a qualifying condition for medical cannabis treatment in her home state of Delaware. Rylie told us, “I knew what I wanted: A way to help kids as much as possible.” 

To learn more about Rylie’s story and the other amazing work she’s accomplishing, read the full article in our newest issue.

Alexis Bortell

Many of you may already know of Alexis Bortell’s bravery to fight for what she believes in. We recently featured Alexis in our newest Children’s Issue, where she gave us an exclusive interview of her story, and the history she’s making as a 13 year old American hero. You’ll have to read the full article for the exclusive, but Alexis and her father, Dean, are taking a stand against the federal government, along with several other plaintiffs currently in the Federal Cannabis Lawsuit where they are petitioning the rescheduling of cannabis as a Schedule 1 Drug. What we can tell you Alexis did say was, “Cannabis isn’t a choice for me, I need it to live.”, and “Without high THC products I would not be seizure free.” In reference to her historical lawsuit, she told GRAM, “If we can work together for what we believe in to make the change we want to see for our future, together, we will prevail.” 

To find out what makes Alexis Bortell so brave, and to find out what you can do to help, read the entire story for yourself in our newest issue.
