HHS To Study Marijuana As A Treatment For PTSD

By: Derrick Broze Mar 19, 2014

 

 

The federal government has approved a new study that will allow the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) to analyze the role of medical grade marijuana as a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder. The surprising decision came last week from the Department of Health and Human Ser... and reverses decades of rejection of medical marijuana research.

In a letter sent to MAPS the Department of Health and Human Services states, “the proposed study is cleared for the purchase of research grade marijuana”. MAPS originally submitted their request back in October 2013. The study, a joint effort between MAPS and the University of Arizona, will examine the effects of five different grades of smoked and vaporized marijuana on 50 veterans diagnosed with PTSD.

MAPS is the main financial supporter of the study, which will be carried out in conjunction with University of Arizona Professor Suzanne Sisley. MAPS has worked extensively on legalizing research on marijuana, lsd, and psilocybin mushrooms.
