History, Regulation, and Public Policy

Crafting effective policy interventions to increase the positive impacts stemming from cannabis use requires an understanding of the attitudes and motivations of consumers and policymakers. Adequate knowledge about historical, legal, regulatory, public policy, ethical, international, and cross-cultural aspects of cannabis cultivation, cannabis use, and cannabis-related disorders is essential to inform cannabis policy reform. 

Medical Cannabis

Medicinal cannabis, or medicinal marijuana, is a therapy that has garnered much national attention in recent years. The use and acceptance of medicinal cannabis continue to evolve, as shown by the growing number of countries now permitting use for specific medical indications. It is vital to explore the most recent medical research and publications to define clinical implications and the best practices of cannabis use in the medical setting

Commerce, Business, and Environment

The cannabis and hemp industry is one of the fastest-growing business segments of the space. It is predicted that the U.S. Cannabidiol (CBD) market will reach $20 billion in sales by 2024 - this would be a significant surge from $1.9 billion in 2018 (a 49% annual growth rate). The key to attaining a competitive benefit with lasting power in the CBD industry is to develop a high-quality product that will defy the coming scrutiny of both regulators and intellectual consumers

Medical Marijuana and Mesothelioma

Global research efforts have increased in recent years because of a growing interest in the potential role of medical marijuana in cancer care. Patients with mesothelioma cope with symptoms of the disease and side effects of cancer treatment such as chest pain and chemotherapy-induced nausea. A number of clinical trials found evidence that medical marijuana may help some patients manage cancer-related symptoms and side effects of cancer treatment.
