Are you interested in the medicinal, holistic benefits of cannabis?

UVM’s Medical Cannabis Programs—the first academic program of their kind nationwide—could be for you. Did you know:

  • Twenty-three states, including Vermont, and the District of Columbia have now legalized cannabis use for medicinal purposes.

  • Acceptance of marijuana for medical and recreational use continues to gain legal backing in more states and physicians and scientists seek more information about how it acts in the body.

  • Cannabis provides patients with more than just relief from pain and nausea. It also has cardiovascular benefits and affects the endocrine system as a hormone regulator.
