Marijuana for PTSD: Marijuana Received from NIDA at Phoenix Site

On August 25, 2016, Site Principal Investigator Sue Sisley, M.D., received the first shipment of marijuana from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), at the Phoenix, Ariz., site of our upcoming trial of smoked marijuana for symptoms of PTSD in U.S. veterans. The marijuana arrived in dried bulk form, and will be analyzed by a secondary DEA-licensed laboratory for potency, mold and yeast testing. We currently expect to begin enrolling participants in September.
