Who we are


The Cannabis Research & Policy Project team is a group of researchers from the Colorado School of Public Health and the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

What we do


With the passage of HB21-1317 (Regulating Marijuana Concentrates), the Colorado School of Public Health has been tasked with:

  1. Conducting a systematic review of research on the physical and mental health effects of high-potency THC marijuana and concentrates;
  2. Establishing a scientific review council to make recommendations to the Colorado General Assembly about evidence-based regulatory changes and funding of additional research; and
  3. Creating a public education campaign on the health effects of high-potency THC marijuana.

Additional information, reports, and materials will be posted to this site as they are available.
