The U.S. government is growing the largest crop of research marijuana in five years, responding to interest in varieties with high levels of THC and CBD.

A new wave of research points toward cannabinoids having an adaptive, immunomodulating effect, rather than just suppressing immune activity.

Cannabis may have originated high on the Tibetan Plateau, according to an analysis of fossil pollen.

In what is believed to be the largest private gift yet to support scientific research on cannabis, a donor is giving $9 million to support Harvard and MIT work on cannabis and its effects on the brain.

“Although we have much still to learn, it appears that in some situations, the ECS acts as a volume control for a variety of processes and factors, modulating the way our body interprets signals, whether they be pain, hunger, excitement, etc.”

Verda Bio won the state's first pot research license last November, giving the company special privileges to study cannabis and create new technology.
