Gender differences in health-related quality of life among cannabis users: Results from the national epidemiologic survey on alcohol and related conditions
Drug and Alcohol Dependence, 05/30/2012
Lev–Ran S et al. – Cannabis use and cannabis use disorders (CUD) were associated with lower self–reported mental Quality of Life (QoL). Specifically, the findings showed that cannabis use and CUD have a more significant effect on self–reported mental health QoL among female users. Assessing severity of cannabis use and impact of CUD should take into account functional and emotional outcomes. This may particularly aid in detecting the impact of cannabis use and CUD on mental health–related QoL among females.
