Pilot Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Different Potencies of Vaporized Marijuana Participants with Chronic, Treatment-Resistant Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

This study is among the first studies examining the effects of whole plant herbal cannabis on a variety of outcomes, including mental health conditions, anxiety, mood, and sleep quality. The interns will gain valuable experience in the field of medical cannabis, and will collect important data on the effects of varying strains of cannabis on anxiety, mood, sleep, and general well-being. The benefits of this
program of research are expected to be far-reaching, to both Canadians suffering from mental health conditions and to the partner organization. Indeed, as use and acceptance of medical cannabis increases, the public are hungry for basic research to help inform their decisions on whether the therapeutic effects of cannabis can help them. Moreover, Tilray will gain immense benefit from the results of this study to better market and recommend specific strains for specific conditions.
