Paid CBD Research Study

Join our paid research study on CBD and mood health!

University of Colorado Boulder

The Research on Affective Disorders and Development Lab is conducting research on the effects of CBD on mood and behavior. We are recruiting young adults ages 18 to 35. One group that we recruit will include people who are experiencing depression. The other group will consist of people who have never had any diagnosed mental disorder.

The study includes a few different parts:
• You will answer short twice-daily surveys for 6 weeks on your mobile device.
• You will complete three in-person research visits, each including an interview about life experiences, a set of computer games, a blood draw, and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scan.
• You will select and use a CBD product for up to 6 weeks

The study takes place over the course of 6 weeks and you will be compensated for your participation (maximum of $863-$1,038 for completing all parts of the study).
