Hebrew University hosts cannabis conference to forge way forward


In 2018, the Jerusalem institution’s tech transfer arm struck 25 licensing agreements in the field of cannabis, accounting for 10% of total licensing volume that year

Yissum, the technology transfer company of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, was hosting a Wednesday conference aiming to boost cooperation between industry and academia for a variety of cannabis-related research and development.

Hebrew University is one of the leading academic institutions globally with expertise in cannabis-related research and patents. The university’s Prof. Raphael Mechoulam kickstarted the field in 1964 when he discovered tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the main psychoactive constituent of cannabis.
