About Our Research Study
Help further research on how CBD effects alcohol use.
Despite the fact that the scientific literature suggests that CBD may have potential for AUD and other disorders and despite the fact that it is widely available, there have been no empirical studies on CBD and alcohol since the late 1970’s.

Researchers at the University of Colorado want to change that. Our study is aimed at investigating the effects of CBD on alcohol use disorder. CBD may have the potential to reduce alcohol use in people with AUD.
