Welcome to Florida International University’s Global Initiative for Cannabinoid Research and Education.  Housed within the Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Sciences, under the leadership and guidance of the Department of Athletic Training, and in close collaboration with other allied health professionals, bench scientists, clinicians, and others, we are dedicated to the study and efficacy of cannabinoid science and application.


Our vision is to produce meaningful cannabinoid-focused research and educational resources that lead to transformative innovations locally and globally.


The Global Initiative for Cannabinoid Research and Education is committed to high-quality education, contemporary and evidence-based research and creative activity, and collaborative engagement with our local and global communities.
