Seed Grants available through the Centre will provide principal investigators with access to funds required to jump-start projects related to medicinal cannabis research. While the focus of this Centre is on research related to pain, mental health and substance abuse disorders, seed grants are also available for other areas, including but not limited to economics, policy, and biochemistry related work. Grants are awarded on a rolling basis.
