Research and Program Update

The Colorado State Legislature approved a $1.8 million budget for the ICR in state fiscal year 2018. The state of Colorado’s continuing support is testament to the ICR’s stewardship of government funding and accomplishment of the following goals:

  • Developing an ICR management and research infrastructure
  • Conducting multi-disciplinary cannabis research with CSU-Pueblo faculty and students
  • Hosting an international, multi-disciplinary cannabis research conference

The ICR Steering Committee has diligently prepared the state fiscal year 2018 budget, balancing associated expansion costs for ICR research and management infrastructure; continuation of state fiscal year 2017 ICR research, journal, and conference; building and maintaining external partnerships; and funding new research. Funding priorities are driven by the ICR’s mission and vision to generate new knowledge and understanding of cannabis and its derivatives through research and education and to translate research discoveries into innovative applications that improve lives and contribute to science, medicine, and society.

The ICR is pleased to announce an agreement with BioMed Central, a division of Springer Nature, a leading open access publisher, to establish the Journal of Cannabis Research to provide a comprehensive platform for the latest multi-disciplinary research on cannabis.
