Researchers at NYU Langone Health, Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center, are recruiting women with RRMS (ages 21 to 65) who regularly use any cannabis product (e.g., marijuana, edibles, vaping) and who wish to reduce cannabis use. The research study will be a one-month treatment using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and mindfulness meditation. tDCS is safe and well-tolerated, and requires a daily (20 min) session. This study is completed through televisits, and all study procedures are completed by you at home. The study will take place over a period of about 4.5 months and involves 22 virtual visits that will be completed remotely from your home using Zoom. Compensation is provided for your time.
