Working With Weed: How Does a Cannabis Researcher Work?
This week Jordan takes a detour from the cannabis industry to take a look at the science of it all. Dr. Angela Bryan conducts research on marijuana at the University of Colorado Boulder. She studies marijuana’s connection to teen risk behavior, it’s effects on cognition and even why it might make you hit the gym more often. And while cannabis is legal in Colorado, there are still all kinds of restrictions that have meant Dr. Bryan and her team have had to get creative. Their biggest innovation? A mobile laboratory known as the Cannavan — though if Dr. Bryan had her way, it totally would have been called the Magic Mystery Machine.
