If you wouldn’t do or say something in real life - in front of your parents, friends, or boss - then don’t do it online at JADEO.

We are a community that is here to unite around wellness. Our goal is to make the world a happier and healthier place through insight and conversations. At JADEO we love productive conversations and we know first-hand there are always different points of view - and we encourage that.   

Our overarching rule is that we expect our members to always act within the law and with kindness. Remember, you are accountable for what you post.

1. Search first and ask second

We created JADEO so that you can collaborate and communicate with others to discuss a common topic and find relevant educational materials.  Dive into a Special Interest Group (SIG), or two, and browse articles or discussions before you request to open a new thread. 

2. Find the right SIG (Special Interest Group)

There are over 45 Special Interest Groups and you are encouraged to join and participate in groups that meet your interests and if you are a professional, apply to one of our Private Groups just for your industry.  Private Groups applicants will have their LinkedIn profiles reviewed by a JADEO team member in order to ensure they are qualified for entry into the SIG.  If you do not have a public LinkedIn profile, you will not gain access to any Private Groups.  

3. Know and report illegal activity

Each country, state/province, have their own laws around cannabis and hemp.  In Canada, each province has its own laws and Canadians are expected to know and follow their respective provincial laws.

If you see a Post or Profile you feel is not following the law please use the 'Report' feature which can be found in the menu of all Posts/Comments/Articles and Profiles. 

Any illegal activity will result in the proper authorities being notified and the member being banned from JADEO.

4. Don't feed stoner stereotypes

We are here to support the community around health, please keep that in mind. We are fighting stigma and we need your help to do that. 

5. Respect copyrights

Posting articles or images that you did not create,  and/or own, and/or have written permission to use from the author is illegal.  You are legally responsible for the content you post in your Member Profile and Articles/Posts you create.  Any illegal activity could result in the proper authorities being notified and the member being banned from JADEO.

6. Be respectful (Zero-Trolling Policy in Effect)

We aim to maintain a safe and respectful environment on JADEO. We ask our members to limit their comments to courteous and respectful language at all times. Any posts that include sexually explicit comments/images, hate-speech, prejudiced or sexist remarks, or profanity will be removed and may result in your account being frozen and possibly banned.

If you feel someone is being malicious or trolling, report them to JADEO, do not engage further with them. Basically, do not feed the trolls. Trolls love attention and anger, and they feed on it.  

7. Don’t spam Discussions, Newsfeeds, or Member's inboxes

Everyone hates spam.  If you keep posting the same Comment/Post repeatedly or message a company on JADEO repeatedly you may find your account frozen.  If you think a profile was hacked please notify JADEO at hello@jadeo.co immediately.

8. Keep private information, private

Never reveal personal information that someone can use to steal your identity or cause you harm in any way.  Never provide your personal birthday, home address or personal email, credit card, identification card, or passwords to anyone online - or - over the phone.  We also strongly warn you not to give anyone your phone number or anyone else's personal information. Notify JADEO immediately at hello@jadeo.co if you have concerns or think someone's privacy has been violated in a discussion.

9. No advertising or self-promotion in Discussions

Do not advertise your own products, services, or website links in discussions as our SIGs were created to be a place of community and educational information, and are not a place for members to sell services or products. These types of posts will be removed and may result in the member account being frozen and possibly banned.  You are free to write an article about your service/product and link to the article - but our NO SELLING in SIGs stands. If you are looking for advertising and partnership opportunities, please contact media@jadeo.co

10.  Impersonations will not be tolerated

Just because someone says they are a doctor or a lawyer, does not mean they are.  Always consult your own professional(s), like your doctor or legal professionals, for reputable advice. Attempts to impersonate other members, impersonate a professional (ie. doctor, lawyer, etc.), and/or impersonate a JADEO team member will result in immediate removal and banning on JADEO.  Further, we may contact the authorities if we believe a crime has been committed.
