Start year: 2019

Summary: Medicinal cannabis products contain varying amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive component of cannabis which is known to be associated with driver impairment and higher crash risk on the road. For this reason, THC is routinely monitored by the state police in the Roadside Drug Testing programs such as the Victoria's Roadside Drug Testing program. This project aims to investigate the length of time for which THC remains detectable in oral fluid of patients after taking a single dose of medicinal cannabis medication.
