Study Design


This study involves people who identify as women or non-binary and who were identified as female (XX) at birth ages 21-45, focusing on two groups:

1. Women who do not use cannabis products

2. Women who use cannabis products

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or are not able to participate in the study.

Participants will fill out surveys about their lifestyle, mood, health, cannabis product use (if applicable), and reproductive health. Samples of a small amount of hair will also be collected. Steroid hormones (cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone), and THC levels will be quantified from the hair strands. {Learn more about hair steroid concentrations}

Participants will receive a $10 e-gift card upon completion of the surveys and return the hair sample to researchers.
