Here’s the press release Veriheal, the cannabis tech, healthcare and intelligence company behind the nation’s largest medical marijuana application platform, today announced the recipients of its $20,000 Innovation in Cannabis scholarship fund, designed to invest in students pursuing degrees in cannabis and accelerate diversity and inclusion in the burgeoning industry. The scholarship fund, which launched with a $10,000 award in 2020 and doubled this year, offers $1,000 grants to 20 student applicants chosen based on essay submissions reflecting their original ideas for improving the cannabis industry through innovation.
