The UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative (UCLA-CRI) is one of the first academic programs in the world dedicated to the study of cannabis. The UCLA CRI is supported by the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the UCLA Brain Research Institute. Despite unprecedented access to cannabis, over half a century of research restrictions and limited funding have contributed to a lack of scientific knowledge about cannabis, particularly in regards to the potential therapeutic use. While our initial priority is to investigate the therapeutic potential and health risk of cannabis, our mission is the interdisciplinary study of all facets of cannabis’ effect on society, including legal, economic, and social impact. The UCLA-CRI will provide timely education, research, and service to lead public policy and public health decisions regarding cannabis.
With your donations we can, for the first time in human history, push forward groundbreaking research into the potential of cannabis and its compounds to treat a variety of diseases that plague mankind.
