Colorado State University Pueblo officials are gearing up for what is probably the nation’s most diverse cannabis research conference slated for Aug. 3-5.

The Cannabis Research Conference is held on an annual basis and is required by legislation that provides funding for the Institute of Cannabis Research at CSU Pueblo. The conference will be virtual this year as many universities and colleges still have not approved employee travel for conferences.

Chad Kinney, director of the institute, has been at the helm since 2018, taking over two years after the research facility was formed. Kinney has a doctorate degree in applied chemistry from Colorado School of Mines.

Kinney brought his environmental chemistry knowledge to the table at the institute where postdoctoral researcher Ken Olejar is using an instrument developed for environmental chemistry to see if it has potential application in the extraction of cannabinoids.
