The American Chemical Society, a nonprofit that’s been supporting scientific research in the United States since 1876, is giving away money to encourage cannabis research. So far, the organization has awarded scholarships to seven scientists who are working on cannabis-related projects around the world.
The American Chemical Society initiative is intended to increase the number of scientists researching marijuana, a substance that, due to federal prohibition, has formerly undergone few high-quality clinical trials. The scholars also receive the opportunity to present their findings at major scientific conferences, increasing visibility for the entire field of cannabis research.
In recent years, a number of different cannabis-related scholarship programs have emerged. Canna Insider has pledged small amounts of money to students investing in a cannabis education. A cannabis college in Oakland, the Oaksterdam University, also gives out small scholarships to students training to work in the cannabis space.
