Ethos Cannabis And Thomas Jefferson University Announce Cannabis Research Partnership

Ethos Cannabis has officially launched a clinical research partnership with the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Pennsylvania.

This development makes Ethos the first operational company to receive this license, as well as the holder of one of only eight statewide Clinical Registrant (CR) licenses.

These licenses are issued to operators that are partnered with one of Pennsylvania’s major university health institutions. The research at Jefferson is fully funded by Ethos, a multi-state cannabis company based in Philadelphia. The goal is to determine which types of cannabis are the most effective for specific ailments, and which dosages provide effective treatment.

Ethos Cannabis’ CEO Teddy Scott told Benzinga he felt honored to announce the partnership with Thomas Jefferson University.

“Receiving this CR license is the end result of years of work behind the scenes by both parties. And the research that we will now be able to accomplish as a result will be a game-changer in regards to elevating our city as a center for serious cannabis research,” he said. “We already have several hundred patients that have pre-enrolled at our Philadelphia dispensary to get this program started.”
