Effect of Medical Marijuana Card Ownership on Pain, Insomnia, and Affective Disorder Symptoms in AdultsA Randomized Clinical Trial

Conclusions and Relevance  This randomized clinical trial found that immediate acquisition of a medical marijuana card led to a higher incidence and severity of CUD; resulted in no significant improvement in pain, anxiety, or depressive symptoms; and improved self-rating of insomnia symptoms. Further investigation of the benefits of medical marijuana card ownership for insomnia and the risk of CUD are needed, particularly for individuals with anxiety or depressive symptoms.
