Exercise for cannabis withdrawal

Some people who smoke cannabis on a regular basis find it easy to simply stop when they want to. For others it can develop into a habitual behavior that, like tobacco use, can be very hard to stop, even when you want to. 

If you are looking for help with stopping or cutting down, and you have found it hard to do so in the past, then you may be eligible to take part in a confidential study testing the effects of a structured exercise regime for the management of cannabis withdrawal. 

What's involved?

To participate in the study, you need to be prepared to spend seven days in a hospital detoxification unit. The study is entirely free and you will also be reimbursed for expenses. We will provide information, support, and referrals to assist you with achieving abstinence. 

Eligibility

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • at least 18 years of age
  • a regular cannabis user, and you would like help with stopping or cutting down
  • prepared to stop smoking and spend seven days in a hospital inpatient setting
  • capable of taking part in moderate intensity exercise.
