ABOUT

Our vision is to support Massachusetts to be the leader in designing, documenting, and scaling Cannabis industry best practices.

We aim to promote local ownership and participation in the Cannabis industry, and rigorously document best practices that demonstrate the impact of adult use and Medical Cannabis on health, social, and economic outcomes in the Commonwealth.

Cannabis Community Care and Research Network (C3RN) is a public benefit corporation formed in March 2017 that provides advocacy, research and educational services for the Cannabis Industry. More information can be found on our website: www.cannaresearchnetwork.com

As part of C3RNs work, we intend to establish a virtual Center of Excellence for Cannabis Care and Research in Massachusetts.
