We have begun an exciting new study into the putative connection between cannabis and enhanced creativity. Collaborating with Professor Valerie Curran & Dr. Celia Morgan at University College London, we are now formally testing this association, and are currently analysing the data from the first 400 participants.

The study  involves several hundred participants, each  smoking their own cannabis. The researchers are analysing the patients’ drugs, measuring the ratios of the various  psychoactive compounds while at the same time finding out what effect the drug has on the users’ experience and capabilities land also mapping it on to the participants’ genomes. This complicated, “real-life” study is expected to provide much useful information about the effects of cannabis on individuals
