Belize Cannabis Foundation (BCF): Building Possibilities for Cannabis Innovation
Show Notes

As the global cannabis industry continues to grow, many organizations are emerging to promote education, research and reduce the stigma of the plant. One such organization is the Belize Cannabis Foundation (BCF), an innovation foundation that focuses on building possibilities and fostering futures for cannabis through its consecutive and concurrent services. The BCF has formed a strong cannabis union both locally and internationally and strives to bring more awareness to the benefits of cannabis.

Research, Training, and Reducing Stigma

The BCF primarily focuses on research, training, and reducing the stigma of plants with the foundation's humanitarian acts of service. Through these efforts, the BCF hopes to create a better understanding of the plant and its benefits. The foundation's research program includes collaborations with other organizations to provide accurate and up-to-date information on the medical and therapeutic benefits of cannabis. The BCF also provides training for healthcare professionals and community members on how to use cannabis as a therapeutic tool.
