"Study on Physical Activity and Cannabis Effects" 

Reason for this Study: An increasing number of Americans are using cannabis in conjunction with exercise, however, little scientific evidence exists regarding the potential harms and benefits of this behavior. We want to understand how varying levels of cannabinoids like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) can impact factors associated with regular exercise, such as enjoyment, motivation, and pain.

What you will do: This study involves meeting with our research staff a total of 3 times at our lab in Boulder. The first meeting will include completion of a baseline survey as well as a brief run on a treadmill. For the second and third meetings, you will be picked up by our mobile lab at a location convenient to you and driven to our lab in Boulder. These meetings will both involve questionnaires and a 30-minute run on a treadmill. We will also draw your blood. Prior to one of these meetings, you will use cannabis. In total, if you complete all aspects of the study, you will be compensated up to $100. To learn more about the study, you can click here.

Who can be in the study: You must live in the greater Boulder area, have experience using cannabis concurrently with exercise, and be between the ages of 21-40 (men) or 21-50 (women) to be eligible for this study. Both men and women can be in the study.
