About Our Research Study
Help further research on how CBD affects chronic pain and opioid use.
The opioid use epidemic has spiraled out of control. Research suggests that opioid use and overdose deaths have worsened since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is incredibly important to identify new, readily available interventions that may be used to target chronic pain and opioid use.

Researchers at the University of Colorado want to combat the country's opioid epidemic by learning more about the effects of hemp-derived CBD on chronic pain and opioid use.

Join the study to help researchers learn more about how CBD can help target chronic pain and opioid use.
