Ethos, a medical marijuana dispensary that also conducts research, opens in Robinson Township – NEXTpittsburgh

Ethos Cannabis is looking for research subjects in Pittsburgh.

The medical marijuana dispensary opened on Nov. 24 at 470 Home Dr. in Robinson Township.

The site collaborates in its research efforts with the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, which is one of the country’s leading medical schools and is certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as a Medical Marijuana Academic Clinical Research Center. The Philadelphia-based operator plans to add two more Pittsburgh locations in the next few months.

Visitors with a Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Card will find a full assortment of medical marijuana products offered in the state, along with staff members who can answer questions, recommend products and help with folks find what they need.

“We want to provide a comfortable and welcoming place for anyone to learn about cannabis products and their applications,” says Mike Bibbey, vice president of marketing with Ethos. “We believe that we can use our expertise to empower people to make smart choices about their health and provide a comfortable experience that reduces stigma and barriers typically associated with cannabis use.”

Patients and caregivers can register for Ethos research studies by visiting a dispensary or signing up on the website.
