Observational Study of Medical Cannabis Treatment

Observational, Longitudinal

BAcKGROUND

This project is designed to understand the impact of "real-world' medical cannabis treatment on various outcome measures. It is a non-invasive observational, longitudinal study examining individuals who are considering medical cannabis, hemp or other cannabinoids (and those who are not) for various medical and/or psychological conditions.

STUDY DETAILS

Those enrolled are assessed at baseline (prior to beginning their medical cannabis treatment regimen for those in the treatment group) and complete clinical interviews, cognitive testing, measures related to quality of life, sleep, general activities, and if eligible, an MRI scan which assesses brain structure, function, chemistry and white matter integrity. Between visits, participants in the treatment group track their use of medical cannabis (MC) products (type, mode of use, amount, frequency) using a log system. Follow up visits occur at 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, and 24 months post MC treatment initiation in order to better assess the potential impact of MC on cognitive function and related brain and quality of life measures.

RECRUITMENT INFORMATION

Interested participants with one or more medical condition who are interested OR not interested in using medical cannabis/hemp products may be eligible.
