An Observational Study of Dabbing High Potency Marijuana


Reason for this Study: The goal of this study is to compare changes in the brain and behavior that happen when people use high potency concentrates / dabs.

What you will do: This study involves meeting with our research staff a total of 2 times, once at our lab in Boulder, and once we will meet you in a mobile lab. The first meeting will include completion of a few assessments. We will also draw your blood. The second meeting is in our mobile lab. This session will include completion of assessments, brief cognitive tasks, and another blood draw.  In total, if you complete all aspects of the study, you will be compensated up to $150.

Who can be in the study: You must live in Boulder, already be using cannabis regularly, have experience with high potency “dabs,” and be between the ages of 21-70 to participate in this study. You must NOT be a current CU student, faculty, or staff member. Both men and women can be in the study.

Our Research has been covered in the February 2017 issue (p. 35) of Sensi Magazine.
