Have You Experienced a Really Stressful Event? You Could Earn $200 Participating in Research Study

A researcher at the U of A is currently running a research study about CBD and very stressful events. If you are interested in learning more, click the link.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-intoxicating molecule from the cannabis plant. If you have ever experienced a very stressful event, are between the ages of 18-55 years old, are not currently taking anti-anxiety medication and have not used CBD in the past 30 days, you may be eligible to participate. If you are eligible, you could earn $200! 

Go to this link to provide contact information for researchers to contact you. If eligible, you would complete visits the laboratory on two separate days, separated by one week, during which you will self-administer CBD or placebo daily (product provided). CBD or placebo also will be administered during the first laboratory visit. 

Help researchers better understand how CBD relates to emotional response to very stressful events and earn money in the process!
