A study conducted by King’s College London in the UK, which aims to examine the effects of cannabis on the brain, is looking for volunteers who are currently addicted, have used cannabis less than three times in their lives or have never used cannabis at all.
A pioneering study on the effects of cannabis on the human brain has been launched in the UK and participants will be paid.
The Cannabis & Me project, run by King’s College London, will accept 6,000 volunteers between the ages of 18 and 45 living in the capital London who are currently using the drug, have used it less than three times or have never tried it before.
Scientists noted that although more than 200 million people worldwide use cannabis every day, little is known about its effects, and they will examine how it affects the brain.

The researchers said it was ‘important’ to understand the effects of cannabis with the increase in the number of cannabis users and the possibility of legalization in the future.
The project, which is divided into two parts, will first conduct 40-minute online surveys, followed by a face-to-face assessment.
Those who complete the survey will be paid 50 pounds.
Experts claim there are about 17,000 people in the UK with cannabis prescriptions and that some crohn’s, epilepsy, Parkinson’s and MS patients say they ‘benefit’ from using cannabis.
