Cannabis Community Care & Research Network Moves Headquarters to Worcester

Saturday, December 15, 2018

 

The Cannabis Community Care and Research Network (C3RN) announced that it is moving its headquarters from Somerville to Worcester. 

“C3RN is excited to move our headquarters to Worcester. This strategic move will allow C3RN to work more closely with our partners in Central and Western Massachusetts to expand our cannabis research, community health, and education services within the industry,” said Dr. Marion McNabb, CEO of C3RN. 

C3RN hosts a virtual community network of academics, cannabis industry, healthcare providers, consumers, and patients who aim to collectively advance cannabis science and best practices in Massachusetts.

Study Results Released 

C3RN also announced the release of preliminary results from their “cannabis citizen science” research study. 

Three leading registered medical cannabis dispensaries (RMDs) participated in the phase one (July – Oct 2018) of the two-year study BASK - Fairhaven, MA, Revolutionary Clinics - Somerville/Cambridge, MA, and INSA – Eastampton and Springfield, MA. AmeriCann, Inc. (OTCQB: ACAN), which recently announced its formal research partnership with C3RN, is participating in the study through its Preferred Partner, BASK, located in Fairhaven, MA.  

Two leading endocannabinoid clinical providers also participated in the pilot study, Dr. Dustin Sulak - Healer.com, and Dr. Ryan Zaklin.

Between July and October 2018, respondents were offered discounts to fill out the anonymous survey, and C3RN used local results to develop medical cannabis patient-focused educational materials that were presented during patient appreciation day events at RMDs.

Among Massachusetts respondents, 63 percent reported consuming cannabis in order to actively reduce prescription medication intake. The most common prescription medication types included: antidepressants (24 percent), Narcotics/Opioids (15 percent), Muscle Relaxants (14 percent), and NSAID/non-opioid analgesics (16 percent).

Cannabis was reported to help with physical symptoms (65 percent), psychological problems (71 percent), and 75 percent of Massachusetts respondents reported cannabis generally helps with overall quality of life. A peer-reviewed manuscript with additional results is currently being developed by C3RN and UMass Dartmouth for submission to a leading scientific journal.

“The data analytics prepared by C3RN for Revolutionary Clinics has been extremely valuable in understanding the needs and consumption patterns of our medical cannabis patients. This information helped us ensure we offer a right mix of cannabis products for the types of conditions our Revolutionary Clinics patients face. This provides a truly unique business perspective and edge for this increasingly competitive marketplace,” said Tom Schneider, Chief Marketing Officer for Revolutionary Clinics.

Citizen Science Data Workshop

C3RN will be presenting this data and hosting a cannabis cultivator “citizen science” data workshop this weekend at the Harvest Cup at the DCU Center in Worcester on Sunday, December 16, 2018 from 10:40 AM to 11:40 AM at the Grand Ballroom, 3rd Floor. 

You can also visit C3RN at the Harvest Cup at booth NP3.
