Description

If you join the study, you will be asked to complete one 10-minute study visit at the Barbara Davis Center on the University of Colorado's Anschutz Medical Campus. During this visit, the study coordinator will first go through the consent process and confirm your eligibility, which may require a review of your medical records. Then we will draw a small sample of your blood (4mL or about one teaspoon) that we will use to analyze your body's natural endocannabinoid levels. Your participation in the study will conclude after this blood draw and we will send you a $15 Amazon gift card to thank you for participating.
