Here at Tao CBD, we have been working with a group of amputees to create an effective formula to assist in the management of pain and inflammation. The result of this work is a product called Phantom Gel, which has now been in use for over a year.
During that year we have also been collaborating with Dr Anna Hood PhD, a lecturer at the University of Manchester, who is investigating amputees’ experiences to understand how cannabidiol (CBD) can be used to benefit the lives of amputees.
The research aims to collect information on the experiences of amputees surrounding CBD, pain, and well-being. In addition, the research aims to see how CBD affects mood and physical outcomes in amputees.
The study is ongoing and we need as many amputees as possible to participate in order to make it as thorough and rigorous as we can.
Who do the researchers need?
Amputees over the age of 16 who reside in the UK, and who have access to the internet are eligible to take part.
You will be asked to complete a 15-minute online questionnaire. This questionnaire consists of questions that will enable us to learn more about you, how you are doing, your experiences of pain, and your awareness and knowledge of CBD.
Interested in taking part?
If you would like to take part, you can access the online questionnaire through this link: Qualtrics Pioneer Study
If the initial study results are promising, then the next stage is to run a UK-based trial so that empirical proof can be established to determine whether CBD benefits the trial participants. As an amputee, we are sure you will understand the potential of this study and its possible benefits to the entire amputee community. We would welcome your participation in this ground-breaking work.
