Wayne State University looking for veterans to study benefits of cannabis for PTSD featuring Dr. Leslie Lundahl
August 6, 2022
That’s why Lundahl and her team at Wayne State University are launching a new study to find out whether CBD and THC can help with PTSD.
“Specifically, we’re looking at PTSD symptoms severity and then frequency and severity of suicidal thoughts and behavior,” Lundahl said.
The study will also test cognitive function and monitor vitals while also testing blood urine and saliva samples. When studying regular users, they’re hoping to find lower levels of THC that can produce effective results.
“That’s important because we know as you go higher in the concentration and level of THC, there are greater risks to using it,” Lundahl said. “Especially if you are using it chronically.”
