The LUNA study will longitudinally follow 120 individuals 18-60 years with mild to moderate TBI for 12 weeks who are willing to use hemp-derived CBD products. This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized controlled trial (RCT), such that both the researchers conducting the study condition assignment and clinical assessments and the participant are blind to the condition. We will randomly assign individuals with mild to moderate TBI to either hemp-derived full-spectrum CBD (FS-CBD), which contains low levels of other cannabinoids, CBD alone (CBD), or placebo in a 12-week RCT with measurement of critical indicators occurring at baseline, 6 weeks post-baseline and 12 weeks post-baseline. The dose of CBD in the FS-CBD and CBD conditions is 210mg. We will monitor the participant's TBI symptoms while on study medication.
