The Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids is a federally registered Canadian nonprofit organization of basic and clinical researchers and health care professionals established to promote evidence-based research and education concerning the endocannabinoid system and therapeutic applications of endocannabinoid and cannabinoid agents.
We will do this by:
Educating researchers, health care practitioners, and the public about the endocannabinoid system and the possible roles of cannabinoids in clinical practice
Facilitating research regarding the endocannabinoid system, mechanisms of action and clinical safety and efficacy of cannabinoids
Creating a networking forum for researchers investigating endocannabinoids and cannabinoids

MPP also works for sensible marijuana policy at the state level, and our grassroots and lobbying campaigns have changed laws.
Project CBD is a non-profit educational service dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical utility of cannabidiol (CBD) and other components of the Cannabis plant. It was conceived by two journalists who have been covering the medical marijuana movement / industry in the pages of O’Shaughnessy’s. We think the reintroduction of CBD-rich Cannabis into the grassroots supply warrants special focus. We support the Society of Cannabis Clinicians' effort to collect, aggregate, and publish data from patients to determine patterns of efficacy—or lack of efficacy.
