Pain points associated with cannabinoid and psychedelic clinical trials

  • Regulatory Barriers: Many countries still classify cannabinoids and psychedelics as controlled substances, making it difficult to obtain the necessary permissions to conduct clinical trials.
  • Complexity of Monitoring Psychoactive Effects: Quantifying and analyzing the subjective experiences and potential long-term psychological effects is intricate.
  • Safety Concerns: Given the psychoactive nature of these compounds, ensuring participant safety, especially in long-term studies, becomes paramount.
  • Data Management and Interpretation: The multifaceted nature of data emerging from these trials, which often include psychological, physiological, and biochemical parameters, can be overwhelming.
  • Blinding Challenges: Due to the distinct and often strong effects of these substances, maintaining effective blinding in randomized controlled trials can be challenging.
