Cannabis health Equity Movement (Chem)™

The Cannabis Health Equity Movement (CHEM) is a call to educate, advocate, and demonstrate that cannabis is a core solution to achieving health equity for all people beginning with communities most divested of access to full health and wellbeing.

CHEM asserts that social equity is our vehicle while health equity is our destination. We believe that health equity should be the True North of not only the cannabis industry, but for all governments, public and private sector institutions, and individuals as we reimagine and create more prosperous societies for all people. Furthermore, we encourage utilizing the innovations of cannabis across the plant's agricultural, industrial, medical, and nutritional uses as a direct means of achieving it. Learn more about our philosophy and the CHEM Pillars of Health Equity™ in the CHEM Manifesto.

CHEM Allyance is the movement’s 501c3 entity formed with a mission to create Entourage Benefit for the communities most impacted by cannabis prohibition by innovating audacious, collaborative, and unique educational opportunities for the advancement of health equity. 


In coalition with CHEM Partners, the organization creates educational, personal and professional development programs, and collaborative public-private community investment projects. CHEM Partners are affiliates comprising Association for Cannabis Health Equity and Medicine (ACHEM), CHEM Coalition members, community organizations, public and private academic institutions, allied corporate partners, and government agencies.
