At Children's Hospital Colorado, we're committed to participating in high-quality research, and we are working with the state of Colorado and the federal government to conduct trials related to marijuana and its derivatives.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has awarded us funds to study marijuana use in the treatment and management of a variety of pediatric conditions, including: epilepsy, neuro-oncology conditions, inflammatory bowel disease, as well as the impact of marijuana usage by pregnant mothers on their children.
We're conducting a study of marijuana use during pregnancy to determine how long the drug remains in a mother's breast milk.
Children’s Hospital Colorado physicians would like to learn more about medical marijuana in children with brain and spine tumors. Get information on volunteer requirements, compensation and how to participate.
"Our cannabis research is a team effort. We work together to solve common regulatory challenges, pool information and resources, and make sure that the data we collect will inform patient care across a range of disciplines."

The Neuroscience Institute is conducting trials to study the use of medical marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD) in the treatment and management of epilepsy and tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Researchers are currently engaged in an FDA-approved, multicenter study to learn more about cannabidiol and whether it can help reduce the frequency of uncontrolled seizures and is safe to use as an add-on therapy for pediatric patients with TSC.
