About Us

The University of Colorado Boulder, along with citizen scientists like you, are conducting a patient centered study on the health effects of cannabis. The purpose of this study is to take a “citizen science” approach to research on the health effects of different types of cannabis, which will empower people to more actively participate in the research and to see the results. This research is being conducted to address the lack of available information on the health effects of cannabis. Better information will help people like you weigh the risks and benefits of cannabis products versus other alternatives.  Eventually, it will help people make decisions about whether to use cannabis, and more importantly, about how to use these products so any risks are minimized and the benefits are maximized. This citizen science initiative will enable the public to more directly engage in the research. Ultimately, the goal of this research is to provide much-needed information to the public regarding the medical uses of cannabis.
