Flora California Prime Inc. is aiming to develop a cannabis production and research facility at Buffalo Lakeside Commerce Park. Flora also seeks to partner with Roswell Park Cancer Institute to conduct research on cannabis products. While there is no official partnership in place, the two organizations could collaborate in a number of ways.
Roswell CEO Candace Johnson stated that more research is needed into the effects of cannabis on the cancer patient given the rising rates of medical and recreational use nationwide. Johnson mentioned other topics of interest which included medical cannabis’s potential to help with anxiety and appetite loss from chemotherapy and medical cannabis’s role in palliative care.
