Call for Papers: The Two Sides of Hemp

The Guest Editor of Journal of Cannabis Research Dr Nirit Bernstein is pleased to launch a call for papers for our new thematic series entitled, “The Two Sides of Hemp: Medical and Industrial”.

We are especially interested in those papers that address developing medical and commercial uses of hemp and hemp products (such as cannabidiol) or those addressing differences between hemp and psychoactive cannabis.

For more information on the series and details on how to submit, you can read the call for papers here.

MS in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics

The Master of Science (MS) in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics program provides students with the knowledge they need to support patients and the medical cannabis industry, add to existing research, and develop well-informed medical cannabis policy.

The two-year program based at the Universities at Shady Grove in Rockville, Md., blends online instruction with face-to-face experiences to prepare graduates to respond to the increasing demand for medical cannabis with an understanding of the basic science and clinical uses of the cannabis plant.

The MS in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics is the first graduate program in the United States that is dedicated to the study of medical cannabis. Students will have the opportunity to meet and interact with experts in the science, therapeutics, and policy of medical cannabis at live symposia, while online coursework will allow them flexibility when completing assignments.

This two-minute video provides a brief overview of the MS in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics at the School of Pharmacy, including details about who the program is designed for, the admissions process, and what students can expect to learn.

Drs. Eddington and Sera applauded for their work in developing and launching the School of Pharmacy’s MS in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics program.

The MS in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics is designed for students who are interested in a career in the medical cannabis industry, whether in a clinical, scientific, or policy role.

The program provides education in following areas:

  • Basic science (pharmacology, chemistry, and medical cannabis delivery systems)
  • Clinical uses (pathophysiology, assessment, and management of conditions that may be treated by medical cannabis)
  • Adverse effects and public health considerations
  • Federal and state laws and policies

Students will take five required foundational courses in medical cannabis science, therapeutics, and policy. Students will also be able to choose three elective courses based on their interests. After completing elective courses, all students will take a course in research methods as well as a capstone course comprised of expert seminars, case studies, and discussions.

Coursework is designed to accommodate students with and without a background in science or medicine, and faculty are dedicated to making courses interesting and accessible to all students, regardless of academic background.
