The Medical University of South Carolina is conducting a study on cannabis use in the adult population.
Cannabis has become more widely used in recent years. As this substance rapidly becomes more popular, the focus has been on how it affects teenagers and young adults. However, cannabis use is also increasing rapidly among older adults. We are interested in studying adults 50-80 to see how cannabis cravings are affected by stress. We will also use brain imaging to investigate how the effects of cannabis. This project is designed to gather information about many factors to gain a better understanding of cannabis use.
This study includes 3 visits: 1 online and 2 in-person at MUSC. These visits will consist of questionnaires, memory and thinking tests, a brain MRI scan, and a stress test. Participants will also be asked to complete 5 minute questionnaires at home for 1 week. In total, participants will be in this study for about 2 weeks. All information will be kept completely confidential, and participants will be compensated for their time.
