Community-Based Clinical Cannabis Evaluation & Research Network (CBCCERN) and the Center for Incubation & Findings Research (CIFR)
Welcome You To The Future of Medical Cannabis and Hemp Research!

Despite “Medical Cannabis” being considered “legal” and “legitimate” in a majority of US states, today, there is still a great divide in credible, validated studies and research on the risks, benefits and outcomes associated with using cannabis and cannabinoids in traditional and conventional treatment plans leading to a disconnect between providers and their patients- further widening the gap in accessible care and professional education. To further combat these widening gaps in mainstream health care systems regarding the current state of Cannabinoid and Cannabis Research, the Center for Incubation & Findings Research (CIFR) partnered with David G. Ostrow, MD, PhD, LFAPA and David Bearman, MD to empower the Community-Based Clinical Cannabis Evaluation & Research Network (CBCCERN) on the proverbial battlefield to create, lead and implement necessary change in regulatory, research, validation and qualification of (Endo)Cannabinology datasets for the treatment and alleviation of a variety of categorically complex diseases. 


In the years since, CBCCERN has integrated both its education and research programs into clinical practice, medical conferences and even a small portion of the Free Clinic Day where CBCCERN helps combat the opioid epidemic by giving away free medical cannabis card (state) recommendations when patients otherwise qualify for opioid or similar intervention. This alone has demonstrated a great deal of impact while collecting patient-centric data and doing good deeds for all stakeholders.

Until his recent retirement, Dr. David Bearman, a co-founding (Endo)Cannabinologist from the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine (AACM) and CBCCERN, served in the roles of  Chief Medical Officer and Grand Proctor for the Free Clinic Program, a pioneering-program that combines Continuing Medical Education (CME) with the delivery of free healthcare through an otherwise orchestrated clinical practicum providing 10 minutes with a medical provider, attorney or social worker, depending on a patient’s own perceived need. 


CBCCERN serves as the first-of-its kind platform to provide organization, administration and oversight on organized peer-reviewed research of the cannabis plant, its various individual compounds and various preparations, through National networks of (Endo)Cannabinologists, Researchers and Licensed Clinicians who are also currently in the practice of recommending medical cannabis for the treatment and alleviation of disorders that are not well addressed by existing FDA-approved therapies. Today, CBCCERN is under the Compassion Center and the Center for Incubation & Findings Research where it leads a variety of outreach and clinical efforts related to widespread adoption of its network. A major part of the Free Clinic System, CBCCERN trains, manages and oversees the medical cannabis clinical practicums, medical cannabis recommendations and registration with the state, credentialing.

Mission: Community-Based Clinical Empowerment

CBCCERN and Compassion Center are at the forefront of cannabis and cannabinoid care, research and innovation combining education with clinical care, research and contract research organizations to facilitate management of trials, studies, evaluations and product validations to maximize a broad range of positive impacts for all.

Donations go further with CBCCERN and the Compassion Center by reaching more patients and charting more outcomes as a result of coordinated care delivery. No less than 80% of each and every dollar raised goes towards the actual research programs while in many cases those programs see over 90% of the source funding in all.

CBCCERN empowers the leading edge of medicine and Cannabinology by engaging providers who actually see their patients for treatment instead of working with clinicians who exclusively cater to the research, clinical trials or product evaluation side of medicine. CBCCERN trains each physician how to best standardize and organize their data.

Looking into the future, CBCCERN will be packaged into various forms to inspire unity and collaboration regardless of platform. For those who wish to integrate Cannabinology into their practice, and those who regularly practice it, CBCCERN will be the gateway to credible research, evaluation partners and data-driven results that can be traced out.
