Location: 125 Doughty Street, Suite 190, SC 29425, United States
Lead Researcher: Kevin Gray, MD
IRB: This study has been reviewed and approved by the WCG Institutional Review Board

About the Study

Approximately 5% of adults between the ages of 18 to 25 have developed a cannabis use disorder (CUD). Currently there are no treatments specifically for CUD, but researchers are looking to change that.

Researchers from the Medical University of South Carolina are testing out a new potential medication for cannabis use disorder and they need participants. If successful, this could become an approved and widely available medication to help cannabis smokers reduce their use.
