For half a century, cannabis has been classified by the U.S. federal government as a “Schedule I Drug”. Schedule 1 Drugs are defined as having the highest potential for abuse and no accepted medical use, and include drugs like heroin. This classification places restrictions on cannabis research activities and blocks funding for therapeutic cannabis research.
Despite over half of U.S. states legalizing medical or recreational cannabis, cannabis is still classified as a Schedule 1 Drug and is arguably the most difficult substance to study in America.
However there is hope. With your donations we can, for the first time in history, push forward groundbreaking research uncovering the effects of cannabis on health and disease. We are on the cusp of a renaissance in our understanding of cannabis, its cannabinoids, and the endocannabinoids our bodies naturally make. The road ahead will be difficult but filled with discovery. Will you to join us on this journey?
