What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Cannabis For Children International has a three-fold mission. 1). Safety Awareness- We address this by providing an Alerts page on our website that features safety concerns such as broken glass dosing dispensers, potentially harmful CBD oils, vaping hazards, pesticides and herbicides, questionable cannabis-based consumer goods, concerning methods of sales or distribution. We share this information on all social media platforms and encourage more focus on safety awareness. 2). Education- We address this by providing a variety of health-related research specific to inquiries made to our organization through various means of social media, emails, and telephone communications. This may include medication side effects and interactions, health articles from Center For Disease Control (CDC), Food & Drug Administration (FDA), World Health Organization (WHO) and other health-related research authorities. 3). Communication is improved by providing a means of open dialogue about this subject.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Safety Awareness Programs that allow youth to learn successfully and develop a clear understanding of cannabis use and its impact on public health. Realistic education sharing about the science behind the cannabis plant and its application the medical care. Improving communication about cannabis care and removing the awkward division between those who chose cannabis use and those who chose not to. Opening the discussion of cannabis as an industry, employer, health option, and economic influence in a realistic matter that properly reflects the growing impact of cannabis in society.

Hours of listening to patients physicians, and care providers. Watching the global applications of cannabis and impacts on human cultures. Sharing scientific data and research in many nations and countries to learn more and a collective network of caring representatives.

A vast global network of supportive leaders from many businesses, governments and community organizations. We are very capable of creating and spreading increased awareness throughout the world with our amazing network.

Cannabis For Children Intl has created a 17 member CFCI Scientific Board Advisory group with international Ph.D./M.D. members that allow us to seek further research and obtain a clearer understanding of the impacts of cannabis use. CFCI is dedicated to increasing cannabis care safety awareness, education, and improved communication worldwide. We have also formed a 19 member Education group made up of physicians, scientists, and university educators to expand learning.
