UC Davis Cannabis and Hemp Research Forum

UC Davis Cannabis and Hemp Research Forums

Hosted by the Cannabis and Hemp Research Center, the UC Davis Cannabis and Hemp Research Forums are a monthly series of webinars and (post COVID-19) seminars intended to inform our campus community, members of the cannabis and hemp industry, and the general public on cannabis and hemp research being done at UC Davis and also to provide an opportunity for guest external researchers to share their expertise.

The inaugural forum was presented on September 24, 2020 by UC Davis Professor of Chemistry Donald Land and titled "Cannabis 101: common misconceptions in production, processing, genetics, and content." Click here for a recording of the hour-long presentation.

The detailed schedule of research forums along with access links can be found here. If you would like to be added to the mailing list to receive updates, please contact Perry King at pking@ucdavis.edu.
