MCGILL UNIVERSITY – RESEARCH CENTRE FOR CANNABIS
Research Centre for Cannabis
Leading the Way for Research in Cannabis: from Plants to People
On October 17th, 2018, Canada became the first G20 country to legalize cannabis for both recreational and medicinal purposes. For this reason, Canada is uniquely positioned to establish international precedents to inform on cannabis use and policy for countries around the world. Therefore, the mission of the McGill Research Centre for Cannabis is to offer a hub for integrated cannabis-related research activities- spanning agriculture/plant sciences, chemistry, biomedical and socioeconomics the outcomes of which will provide evidence based knowledge and greatly impact cannabis-related decisions/policies surrounding health, society and law.
