Sundial/U of S Partner On Cannabis Clinical Research To Study Dementia

The latest endeavor for Sundial Growers out of Olds is a research partnership with the University of Saskatchewan. The study has to get approval from Health Canada to do the research and that is currently under review. Sundial President Thompson says they hope to have confirmation on that before the end of the year and start research by early 2019.

Sundial Growers wants to be one of the pioneers in proving the use of medical cannabis as an alternative to traditional medicine.

That is according to Sundial Growers President Geoff Thompson, where their latest endeavor is a research partnership with the University of Saskatchewan.

He notes they approached the U of S about a year and a half ago.

The cannabis company out of Olds says it is a wide ranging partnership and it will focus on the veterinary department, and the crop science area.

Thompson adds, another part of the research will focus on dementia.

He says the studies will be broken down into phases - a quality of life review and clinical trials.

This first stage will be on quality of life improvement.
