    Granting Agency: National Institutes of Health
    Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health, solicits new or competing renewal Research Project Grant (R01) applications from institutions/ organizations that propose to conduct preclinical and clinical research directed towards the identification, evaluation and development of safe and effective medications for the treatment of Cannabis Related Disorders (CRDs) and their medical and psychiatric consequences. They include the Cannabis Use Disorders (CUDs) such cannabis abuse and dependence, the Cannabis Induced Disorders (CIDs) such as intoxication, psychosis, and anxiety, as well as the comorbidity of these disorders with other medical and psychiatric disorders (e.g., depression). Cannabis use includes marijuana, hashish, and other tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) containing substances. NIDA is encouraging research in this area because there is a high prevalence of marijuana use in the general population accompanied with an increasing misperception that its use poses low health risk, there is limited research in this area, and there are no effective pharmacological treatments available for these disorders.
