Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics

Advancing cannabinoid-based treatments in mainstream medicine

The Lambert Initiative was created when Barry and Joy Lambert made a $33.7 million donation for research into the therapeutic use of medicinal cannabis.

The Lambert initiative is an Australian first in the field of medicinal cannabinoids. We are targeting a range of conditions including paediatric epilepsy, cancer, chronic pain, obesity, neurological, and mental health disorders.

Our aim is to optimise safe and effective cannabinoid therapeutics into mainstream medicine in Australia and beyond to deliver long overdue benefits for patients and to alleviate suffering.

Help us understand how people are using medicinal cannabis in Australia

Have you used cannabis for medical purposes in the last 12 months? Are you an Australian aged 18 or over? We have launched an anonymous online survey to help us understand why Australians use cannabis as medicine. The survey takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete, and participants can save their responses as they go.
