Study on the use of cannabis for medical purposes

A research student at Birmingham City University is completing a study on the use of cannabis for medical purposes. Specifically, the research depicts attitudes, knowledge and experiences of those with symptomatic chronic conditions regarding the medical efficacy of cannabis.

The survey is anonymous, is separated into three sections and takes no longer than 15 minutes to complete;

Section 1 discusses the current circumstances of the participants – what medical condition they manage on a day-to-day basis

Section 2 examines the experiences of those who have used cannabis medically, as well as, symptom management

Section 3 is about the overall view of cannabis, whether that is legality, or the likelihood of cannabis use, even though it is prohibited in the UK; or incredibly expensive.

It is important to understand potential coping strategies, and with research on cannabis’ medical efficacy being inconclusive, it could be argued that those who potentially use cannabis in their daily life for medical purposes – regardless of prohibition or expense – are more equipped than anyone to discuss its efficacy.

Participants do not need to have previously used cannabis to take part, but do need some form of chronic condition.

Data collection for the survey closes on 31/7/2019. Click the flyer to read more about the study or to take part in the study please click the link below
