Cannabis Patient Network Institute

Experience Advancing Science





Cannabis Patient Network Institute (CPNI) has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the politically under-represented members of our global family who suffer from illness and do not know about the Endocannabinoid System or understand the use of cannabis as medicine. Find out how you can contribute to a future in which cannabis is restored in our society as a food and medicine available to all people.  Learn how you can support and participate in our educational events, future community research projects, and in other events in your area or online!
