Research into the effects of cannabinoids, including cannabidiol, continues to progress into exploring an astonishing variety of systems and disorders. Although government restrictions on cannabis research hindered advancement until very recently, currently research has been blooming. If you would like to take part in this research and further our understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying the relief provided by the endocannabinoid system, check out the current clinical trials involving CBD. Many are currently recruiting participants all across the country, and you could get involved! Some trials may even offer incentives, such as paying for travel expenses, if they need participants with certain conditions.
