Cannabis Science and our associates in Thailand are constructing a business relationship that will allow for the necessary clinical trials to take place in Thailand with approval of the Thai governmental. The intent is to formalize a mutually beneficial partnership in the medical cannabis tourism industry. Concurrently, Thailand will serve as a staging ground for Cannabis Science to test and develop our products as we move toward our ultimate goal of U.S. FDA approved cannabis extract based medicines. The Thai people will benefit from our collaborative efforts in that income and knowledge generated by medical cannabis tourism will offset medical costs for the Thai people.
