NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Haymarket Media, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has acquired the American Journal of Endocannabinoid Medicine (AJEM)—a peer-reviewed journal focused on cannabinoid medicine. Haymarket is making an additional investment in AJEM to increase its engagement with healthcare professionals (HCPs) and fulfill its mission to educate and inform the medical community on cannabinoid-based therapy.
Physicians are not trained in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in medical school. Yet, they are increasingly tasked with caring for patients using cannabinoid-based medicine—often in conjunction with other pharmaceuticals. AJEM fills this knowledge gap and provides the medical community widespread access to high-quality, trusted, peer-reviewed content.
“It was important for us to find the right partner to continue AJEM’s journey,” says Ken Watkins, Brand Director of AJEM. “Haymarket’s healthcare presence allows us to broaden our reach and offer content to physicians in a way that is familiar to them, and in a language that they speak—the language of science. We are committed to publishing the latest peer-reviewed research and medical education on the endocannabinoid system as a therapeutic target,” says Watkins, who founded and launched AJEM in 2019.
“Adding a peer-reviewed medical cannabis journal to our portfolio reinforces our commitment to educating physicians and positions Haymarket for leadership in this emerging therapeutic area,” says Lee Maniscalco, CEO of Haymarket Media, Inc.
AJEM joins the Haymarket Medical Network (HMN) and will benefit from the division’s digital expertise in delivering relevant and timely clinical content to a broad audience of HCPs. “The future of this therapeutic pathway is bright and I am excited that Haymarket will provide clinicians the opportunity to engage with evidence-based research on cannabinoid medicine,” says Mike Graziani, President of Haymarket’s Medical Communications Group.
“I am delighted to be a part of such an intelligent, collaborative effort. Haymarket’s resources will allow us to finally provide much-needed endocannabinoid education to those on the front lines of medicine,” says Leslie Apgar, MD, Editor-in-Chief of AJEM.
