Puyallup Tribe operates first cannabis institute in United States
The Puyallup Tribe of Washington is operating what's being called the first cannabis institute in the nation.
Medicine Creek Analytics is located at the Salish Integrative Oncology Care Center, the tribe's cancer center. It offers testing services for recreational and medical cannabis products, The Tacoma Weekly reported.
“It’s a pioneering venture,” Chairman Bill Sterud told the paper. “No one in the U.S. has a cannabis institute, so this could be a place for cannabis science and research and foremost for treating people with good medicine. The lab ties in to the project as a quality assurance mechanism to provide standardization."
