The Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp is part of the Institute of Emerging Health Professions at Thomas Jefferson University.

Our goals are to:

  • Provide expert-developed, unbiased information to clinicians and patients about the medical uses of marijuana, hemp extract, and other cannabinoid-focused therapies, 
  • Conduct research and serve as a networking nidus for multicenter, multinational research to evaluate and elevate the evidence basis for cannabinoid therapy in multiple medical conditions, and 
  • Provide best-in-breed support for the development of entrepreneurial and socially responsible business and clinical approaches within the emerging medical cannabis industry.

Although certain states have legalized marijuana for medical and/or recreational use, marijuana remains a Schedule I drug under the Controlled Substance Act.  The growing, sale, distribution or use of marijuana therefore remains illegal under federal law.  Use of marijuana for research is permitted subject to specific federal requirements.  These educational courses do not provide legal advice with respect to marijuana.  Physicians and other healthcare providers are encouraged to consult their own legal counsel in regards to specific legal issues and risks with respect to marijuana.  


The purpose of this seminar is to provide evidenced based information in regards to medical marijuana and does not endorse or oppose its use.
