As CPN Institute grows from a grassroots community organization to a full-blown Research organization, we will rely heavily on patients to share their personal stories through a variety of means. To begin, we ask that members please share the links to surveys on social media, email, or other means--good survey results come from broad demographics and honest input. As well, please check back regularly as each week this page will be updated, as necessary, to accommodate more tools to collect data for a wide variety of projects.
Cannabis Patient Network’s mission is to empower patients to take an active part in their healthcare, their recovery, and in research that highlights their knowledge and embodied experience.
Approaching cannabis education and research in a unique manner, Cannabis Patient Network launched a national membership organization, CPN Institute, on August 8th, 2013 giving cannabis patients nationwide the opportunity to offer their direct support for community development, education, and research that positively impacts all patients’ lives. CPN Institute is nearly 1000 members strong today, and hopes to attract 2500 supporter members by the end of the year.
The chart below represents only some of the human needs CPN Institute hopes to address as it develops a national organization and over time a Research Institute funded publicly by those who care about endocannabinoid research and interdisciplinary research projects.
