The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), is sponsoring a workshop on December 8, 2018 to discuss the processes and issues related to conducting cannabinoid research. “Evaluating the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids: How to conduct research within the current regulatory framework” will bring together researchers, government officials, and industry representatives to discuss the processes and issues related to conducting cannabinoid research.
The meeting will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and will be livestreamed online. The link to view the livestream/videocast will be posted on the NCCIH web site when available.
The goals of this meeting are to:
- Gain an understanding of how to navigate this regulatory space
- Discuss future research opportunities
- Foster collaborations
The focus of this workshop will be on the state of the science and working within current regulations. This meeting will NOT discuss challenging or changing current Federal laws, policies or regulations.
