In general, “marijuana” refers to cannabis that has high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the cannabinoid that is responsible for the “high” associated with cannabis use.  However, there is another cannabinoid in cannabis called cannabidiol (CBD), which lacks this “high” and has many potential therapeutic roles. Due to its potential therapeutic roles, non-intoxicating properties, and the ability to extract it from industrial hemp, CBD has become widely available. While studies have examined attitudes toward marijuana use during pregnancy, no studies to date have looked at attitudes toward CBD specifically.

This IRB exempted confidential survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. No personal information will be collected and the investigator will never know your identity.

We hope you will please take a few minutes to assist us with this project.
