To be eligible to participate in this study, you must be at least 19 years old, English speaking, a student at UNB or STU, living with an eating disorder for six months or more, and willing to participate in two individual interviews.

The interviews will take place by telephone in the comfort of your home. A research assistant will ask you about your experiences with cannabis use and any effect on your eating issue. Your participation is entirely voluntary and will take approximately 30-60 minutes for each of two interviews.
