Project CBD is a non-profit educational service "dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical utility of cannabidiol (CBD) and other components of the cannabis plant". According to its website, the concept for the project began in 2010 by two journalists who were coring the medical marijuana for O'Shaughnessy's, the journal of cannabis in clinical practice.
Project CBD displays the following goals on their website:
- Update doctors and patients on developments in cannabinoid science and therapeutics.
- Support the efforts of physicians and other researchers to collect, aggregate, and publish data from patients to determine patterns of CBD efficacy — or lack of efficacy.
- Report on the reintroduction of CBD-rich cannabis into the grassroots supply.
- Review and certifies CBD-rich products.
- Refute the slander that medical marijuana is “a front for stoners.”
