Cannabis Use and Perceptions among Canadians with an SCI

You can help researchers at Western and Brock Universities understand the perception of cannabis use in people with a spinal cord injury to determine how willing the community is to participate in research studies requiring cannabis use and how likely this group of people will be to adopt cannabis use as a treatment option. The purpose of this study is to better understand aspects of cannabis use in adults with an SCI and self-reported reasons and side effects.

Participants will complete a questionnaire consisting of 22-items to describe the prevalence of cannabis use in adults with an SCI in Canada, and to describe the self-reported reasons and side effects of cannabis use.

Who is eligible to participate: You may be able to be a part of this study if you:

  • Are a Canadian adult aged 18 years or older
  • Have various levels and severities of spinal cord injury

What is involved:

Participants will be asked to complete a 22-item questionnaire related to participant demographics, cannabis use prior to injury, and cannabis use following injury. The information will be gathered by completing an online REDCap questionnaire, and will take approximately 15 minutes.
