Monthly Webinars


The Institute of Cannabis Research has hosted the Cannabis Research Webinar Series since October 2020. The series showcases expert speakers who provide cutting edge scientific information on a variety of cannabis-related topics. Presenters for this webinar series have spoken on topics ranging from medical science and public policy to industrial perspectives, to funding opportunities. Currently, these webinars are co-managed by the Institute of Cannabis Research at CSU Pueblo and the Lambert Center at Thomas Jefferson University. This webinar series regularly schedules a presentation on the second Thursday of each month, held on Zoom.

Additionally, in February 2022, the ICR launched a second webinar series dedicated to Cannabis Plant Science and Cultivation. The series has showcased experts who have spoken on a wide array of subjects including cannabis physiology, pharmacology, cutting-edge cultivation techniques, risk management strategies, and the utilization of agricultural by-products such as cannabinoids, seeds, and fibers. Currently, these webinars are co-managed by the Institute of Cannabis Research at CSU Pueblo and The Volcani Institute in Israel. This webinar series is scheduled monthly and held on Zoom.

We cordially invite you to participate in our ongoing monthly webinar series, and to review recordings of the webinars which are made available on our website shortly after each presentation
