Our mission is to empower widespread acceptance of cannabis through advocacy and awareness.
Cannabis was one of the most abundant and widely used plants for thousands of years before prohibition. As a sustainable, resilient, renewable resource with more than 20,000 medical and industrial uses, cannabis has untapped potential to solve perplexing medical, environmental and economic issues facing our society today. Groundbreaking discoveries about the endo-cannabinoid system in recent years have shown that cannabinoids derived from the Cannabis plant are of vital necessity for human health.
Lack of awareness, cultural stigma and shortage of clinical studies conducted in the U.S. remain barriers to acceptance and regulation. Education is key to dispelling myths, engendering public trust and earning the credibility necessary to galvanize public support of nationwide regulation. We aim to engender acceptance and support advocacy leading to eventual policy change so that the industry can continue to grow and thrive.
