MedicalResearch.com: What is the background for this study?

Response:  Studies have reported differences in how males and females respond to cannabis and how they develop problems related to cannabis use.  We sought to determine whether craving may underlie this difference in male and female cannabis users.

MedicalResearch.com: What are the main findings?

Response: We found differences in self-reported craving between males and females, although, the brain response during craving was the same between groups. 

MedicalResearch.com: What recommendations do you have for future research as a result of this work?

Response: Future studies, particularly those related to craving, should consider these effects.
