About this study

This study aims to examine the relationship between eye movements and driver behaviour to better understand the impact of medicinal cannabis use on driving performance in healthy adults under a variety of formulations, preparations, and doses of medicinal cannabis products available to patients.

It will also ensure that new vehicle safety technologies that are designed to detect and measure impairment due to substance usage are functioning in a way that is both accurate and reliable.

You may be eligible to participate if you:

  • are male or female aged 21 to 55 years  
  • are a regular driver (more than 4,000 kilometres per year) with three years of driving with a full driver’s licence (no 'P plate' drivers) 
  • are within the healthy BMI range (18.5 to >30). 
  • have previous (lifetime history) of cannabis use with no adverse side effects.

What’s involved?

Participants will be asked to attend four visits at Swinburne University for:

  • one screening session for a maximum of 1.5 hours
  • five testing sessions (one week apart) for a maximum of five hours each.
