Research and Clinical Studies on medical cannabis are essential for helping doctors find new and improved methods for health and chronic condition care.  The mandate of the studies is to answer scientific questions . . . better understand drug interactions and define dosage measurements for treating each specific condition with cannabis. Just as importantly we need research on why cannabis shows great promise for improving life threatening conditions like cancer, epilepsy and PTSD. These studies are usually the final step in the process of developing new drugs and other means to fight disease.  My Compassion’s commitment to expanding research on medical cannabis is unwavering. As a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization My Compassion is in the perfect position to take part in the upcoming grants for the research of medical cannabis.
