It is important that consumers, educators, and regulators have a solid understanding of medical cannabis science. To this end, PSI is dedicated to presenting evidenced-based information to the general public, aspiring physicians, professionals, and government officials.

General Public

In order to offer research-based education to the general public, PSI sponsored a Cannabis Speaker Series at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. Online webinars are available for viewing.

Higher Education

The PSI team developed and currently teaches both the Cannabis Science and Medicine Professional Certificate Program and the medical cannabis course at the University of Vermont’s College of Medicine. This curriculum is the first of its kind to be offered by an accredited medical school in the United States and is designed for medical professionals, industry personnel, and budding scientists.


In 2016, PSI authored a white paper titled "Cannabis Testing for Public Safety – Best Practices for Vermont Analytical Laboratories” to aid the Vermont legislature in developing rules and regulations for ensuring the safety of the state’s medical Cannabis program.
