News and In The Press

  • Now that Canada’s much-anticipated legalization of cannabis has officially taken effect (as of Oct. 17, 2018), it’s worth noting Hebrew University’s seminal role in the development of medical marijuana.
  • As much of the world debates how to address marijuana use, the vast majority of American states have legalized it or allow it for medical purposes. Global pharmaceutical companies and hospitals seeking effective treatments using cannabis should look to Professor Raphael Mechoulam, a scientist at Hebrew University. Mechoulam, a pioneer in the field, was the first to isolate, analyze and synthesize the major psychoactive and non-psychoactive compounds in cannabis and has developed a number of revolutionary marijuana-related treatments.
  • Students will combine academic study with volunteer program through Tevel B’Tzedek’s veteran Israeli social justice program in Nepali villages.
