Our Mission

Our Mission

Project CBD is a California-based nonprofit dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical uses of cannabidiol (CBD) and other components of the cannabis plant.

Project CBD was established in 2010 by journalists who had been covering the medical marijuana story—the science, the movement and the industry. We felt that the reintroduction of CBD-rich cannabis into the grassroots supply merited special attention. The serendipitous reappearance of whole plant CBD in Northern California in 2009 has given doctors and patients a unique opportunity to evaluate the effects of cannabidiol (CBD). Today we provide educational services for physicians, patients, industry professionals, and the general public, including:

  • Updating doctors and patients on developments in cannabis science, therapeutics, and political economy.
  • Supporting the efforts of physicians and other researchers to collect, aggregate, and publish data from patients to determine patterns of CBD efficacy—or lack of efficacy.
  • Conducting training workshops for consumers, health workers, and dispensary staff on the benefits and challenges of CBD-rich therapeutics.
  • Offering a CBD Locator Map to highlight storefronts and delivery services that provide high quality CBD-rich medicine.
  • Publishing a free online newsletter
  • Co-producing Cannabis Conversations, an educational video series.
