Westword reports that Denver-based Cannabis Clinicians Colorado is seeking 16 retired athletes for a study on how CBD use addresses health issues like chronic pain.
Screening days are Sept. 27 and 28. The chosen participants will be involved in an eight-week research campaign looking at how certain CBD dosages and delivery systems impact physical and mental health. As the organization's website states: "Did you play football, hockey, MMA (mixed martial arts), volleyball, basketball, field hockey, soccer, etc? Do you have pain and/or mental issues resulting from your sport? Email Info@mjformds.com to see if you qualify for the study!"
The research mirrors similar projects taking place across athletic leagues and in the cannabis industry. Aurora Cannabis, a major licensed Canadian producer, teamed up earlier this year with UFC for a study on how CBD address pain incurred by fighters.
