The Cannabis Chemistry Committee and the Division of Chemical Health and Safety (CHAS) of the American Chemical Society (ACS) on Tuesday announced the creation of the Cannabis Chemistry Subdivision (CANN) within CHAS.
"The Division and CANN are excited about this new relationship and are looking forward to expanded collaboration and education efforts," said spokesman Ezra Pryor. "Growing faster than ever, CANN is eager to offer membership and showcase the benefits of getting involved."
According to Pryor, member benefits are numerous and growing, from a free subscription to the peer-reviewed Journal of Chemical Health and Safety to receiving discounted membership and services with other organizations.
"Having relationships with organizations like Americans for Safe Access, The International Association of Cannabinoids as Medicine, American Oil Chemistry Society, Association of Official Agricultural Chemists, and several others, our members can receive exclusive access to content, events, and a network of leading professionals in the cannabis industry," Pryor said.
"Members of CANN are always preparing for the next opportunity to engage and educate others," Pryor said. "By joining CANN and getting involved, you have a say in what kind of cannabis programming is presented at ACS meetings."
