"The mission of the International Cannabinoid Research Society is to (1) foster cannabinoid research; (2) promote the exchange of scientific information and perspectives about Cannabis, the cannabinoids, and endocannabinoids through the organization of scientific meetings; (3) serve as a source of reliable information regarding the chemistry, pharmacology, therapeutic uses, toxicology and the behavioral, psychological, and social effects of Cannabis and its constituents, of synthetic and endogenous compounds that interact with cannabinoid receptors and of any compounds that target other components of the endocannabinoid system.”
- ICRS By-Laws, ratified October 2009
A great strength of the International Cannabinoid Research Society is the diversity of its membership. Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are central to the values, ethos and mission of the ICRS – to advance cannabinoid research and to support and celebrate the achievements of cannabinoid researchers, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, mental or physical ability, age, gender identity or sexual orientation. The ICRS strives to uphold the highest standards of humanity and integrity for its members and advocates for social accountability, equality, and respect for human rights within civil society, governments and other societal actors. Over the past 24 months, we have established an EDI Committee and have developed the ICRS EDI strategy/framework. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please let us know at EDI@icrs.co.
