Early Psychosis clinical trials at University of California Health
1 research study open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 16-30
This is an outpatient, single center, between-group, double blind, placebo controlled design. Approximately 120 adolescents and adult patients will be randomized to either have their treatment augmented with Cannabidiol Oral Solution (CBD) or with a matching CBD placebo for 8 weeks. The study will examine CBD as an augmentation strategy in early psychosis. It is hypothesized that CBD will improve symptoms, neurocognition, markers of inflammation and eating behaviors. Importantly, moderators and mediators of the CBD effects will be explored.
Our lead scientists for Early Psychosis research studies include Kristin Cadenhead, MD.
