Advancing Cannabis Research

Tilray is proudly pioneering the effort to further understand the therapeutic value of cannabis. Under the guidance of our independent Medical Advisory Board and through partnerships with leading research institutions globally, Tilray is currently supporting clinical trials around the world studying the efficacy of cannabis in treating indications including chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, essential tremor, childhood epilepsy and post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). We have also assisted in developing and publishing numerous studies exploring the therapeutic effects of cannabis and its derivates and empowering patients to use it safely.
