Researchers are currently seeking volunteers willing to smoke up and get behind the wheel of a sophisticated driving simulator. The only catch: You’ve got to bring your own cannabis.

As a green gold rush in legal marijuana and its non-drug cousin hemp spreads across North America, a growing number of colleges are adding cannabis to the curriculum to prepare graduates for careers cultivating, researching, analyzing and marketing the herb.

Though research is truly in its beginning stages, the cannabinoids known as THCV, CBN, and CBG are emerging as medically -- and in some cases recreationally -- significant.

A group of researchers from the University of New Mexico have found that scientists may have been mistaken about the chemicals that are most and least associated with marijuana's medicinal properties.

Cooking with cannabis has evolved beyond the edibles of our youth, which were often viewed as a delivery vehicle for an intense high rather than a legitimate culinary pursuit.

Farmers (and Sen. Mitch McConnell) aren’t the only ones who are excited about hemp. According to a recent study, the crop also attracts a variety of bees—and that can help inform ecologically sustainable agriculture practices.
