Gibbys Garden, The Cannabis Center of Excellence, and Patriots Helping Vets are excited to launch a veterans cannabis access research project in Massachusetts for the first 450 qualifying veterans. Interested veterans can enroll in the research study by visiting the Cannabis Center of Excellence website to get verified into the research study. After completing a baseline survey, veterans will be able to purchase a cannabis product bundle consisting of Gibby’s Garden products and one of the four retail outlets. The bundle includes two ⅛ ounces of cannabis flower, 2 strains of pre-rolls, and 15 ml of cannabis tincture. As part of the research study, Veterans will be asked to report on access to cannabis issues and the product(s) and its impact on their health and wellness via paper-based forms or a mobile medical cannabis application called Tetragram. This research study is reviewed and approved by the UMass Dartmouth IRB for human subjects research.
