NCPIC produces a monthly e-Zine which examines a range of cannabis-related issues. As well as highlighting relevant research publications that have been recently published, it examines some of the cannabis-related media stories that have attracted attention each month, as well as providing some information on ‘hot topics’.

NCPIC also produces regular Bulletins on a variety of cannabis-related topics, including the latest cannabis research by the Centre and its consortium partners. These are written by NCPIC staff, consortium partners, as well as guest researchers from around the country. In addition, the Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC), one of NCPIC’s consortium partners, produces an additional Bulletin series and Research into Practice Brief series that deals with a range of cannabis-related issues from a criminal justice perspective. These are all available on this website and are emailed to a subscribers' list when they become available.

Relevant, up-to-date cannabis research publications in academic journals from around the world are also identified and listed on the website.

A series of NCPIC Research Briefs provide commentary on the latest cannabis-related research drawn from a wide range of published literature to give you a balanced, evidence-based snapshot of the issues.

Our comprehensive series of factsheets are also available here. These cover a wide range of topics such as cannabis and motivation, cannabis in the workplace and cannabis use and reproduction.

NCPIC's first Technical Report can also be downloaded from the website.
