Cannabis Research Alliance

Good Corporate Citizenship

Cannabis Research Alliance is founded on the idea that responsible cannabis-related businesses want to give back to establish trust and credibility in the sector through legitimate scientific and medical research as well as evidence-based education. Together we are a stronger force in driving comprehensive exploration of cannabis safety and efficacy across diverse health conditions, as well as sharing research findings to improve awareness and advocacy efforts.

We bring together the financial resources, multi-disciplinary thinking and cutting-edge research needed to explore how and why cannabis may deliver its broad health benefits.

How it Works

“We still do not understand many fundamental cannabinoids mechanisms, such as which receptors in the brain they work through and how they cause changes in brain networks underlying attention, anxiety, pain and mood. Deciphering the personalized effects of CBD and THC will have a profound impact on how various cannabinoids may best be used for medical treatments.”
