There are many new clinical trials available to Alaskans that are conducted at home. Clinical trials are medical research studies designed to test the safety and effectiveness of new investigational drugs, devices or treatments in humans. These studies are conducted worldwide for a range of conditions and illnesses.

Chronic pain study

Boomers, if are you having chronic pain, this may be of interest to you.

The home study with researchers from the University of Michigan gives you the opportunity to participate in a first of its kind study on the efficacy of unique cannabinoid tablets and capsules in treating fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

This 12-week study focuses on cannabinoid based medicine. There are three specific products included in the study, all in capsule or tablet form. Each product contains different ratios and formulations of THC, CBD and a wide range of minor cannabinoids.

If you are a first-time cannabis or cannabinoid consumer, none of the products are THC dominant. Meaning, none of these products are meant to make you feel high or “stoned.” Only one product has more than 1 mg of THC and it contains an equal amount of CBD. 

These products are specifically formulated to be used as medicine and help patients find relief.
