“Novel Approaches to Understanding the Role of Cannabinoids and Inflammation in Anxiety”

Reason for this Study: We want to understand how varying levels of cannabinoids like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) impact things like anxiety and mood. To better understand how cannabis and anxiety are linked, this study will examine whether anxiety and inflammatory markers in the body change with varying levels of CBD and THC.

What you will do: This study involves meeting with our research staff a total of 3 times; twice at our lab in Boulder, and once in our mobile van laboratory at a location convenient to you. All appointments will include a blood draw (2 on the final appointment) and tasks to assess cognitive function. Between these 3 appointments, you will be asked to respond to a short daily message. After these 3 appointments, you will be asked to respond to 5 monthly questionnaires regarding cannabis use and anxiety. In total, if you complete all aspects of the study, you will be compensated up to $300. To learn more about the study, you can click here.

Who can be in the study: You must be between the ages of 21-70 and experience anxiety to be eligible. Both men and women can be in the study.
