Pain Awareness Month is underway. Eaze wants to help.
All September long, Eaze is donating 5% of proceeds to the groundbreaking research of Dr. Sue Sisley, the Arizona scientist on the brink of releasing what promises to be a historic clinical study.
Sisley’s research, focusing solely on U.S. military veterans, is the first triple-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial to determine whether cannabis can help returning soldiers cope with PTSD. Because the study is blind, the results won’t be known to anyone – not even Sisley – she unveils them in the coming months.

Her project landed at the cannabis-focused Scottsdale Research Institute, and is just four out of 76 trial patients away from completion.
And the footprint of her research will reach beyond PTSD: Among other things, the study is measuring the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis, a response that’s never been quantified in human clinical trials.
But legitimate, detailed research takes constant funding. Carefully observing Sisley’s group of 76 military veterans will cost upwards of $2 million. Your purchases this month will help get Dr. Sisley’s work across the finish line.
Eaze is honored to contribute to this important work during Pain Awareness Month.
