What are the issues ? 
  • As Cannabis transitions into a legitimate market, increasing scrutiny reveals a marketing facade. 

  • Poor categorizations and dosage discrepancies may lead the consumer to purchase unvalidated products.  

  • Cannabis presents a “botanical conundrum” of multiple and variable active ingredients.  As a result, there is trial-and-error Cannabis consumption without accumulated knowledge. 

Why is Cannabis science important?   
  • Cannabis users and medical patients, alike, report successful experiences.  

  • Unstudied effects and adverse events generate government hesitancy and labile Cannabis trade prices.  

  • The Cannabis market maintains position in illegal trade in order to stabilize a turbulent transition.
