Medicinal Cannabis Research Centre Coming To Newcastle Uni

Researchers at the University of Newcastle have secured $6 million in medical grants, with close to half of that going towards the creation of a medicinal cannabis research centre.

The uni says the world-first research centre will test the effectiveness and safety around medicinal applications of a range of cannabinoids.

The centre will be a partnership between the University of Newcastle, Hunter Medical Research Institute, Hunter New England Health and unis around the country.

The $2.5 million grant has come from the latest round of National Health and Medical Research funding.
