Content By: Pacheco-Colón, I., Limia, J. M., & Gonzalez, R. (2018). Nonacute effects of cannabis use on motivation and reward sensitivity in humans: A systematic review. Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, 32(5), 497-507.

Course Description: A decrease in motivation is commonly described as consequence of cannabis use. However, no research to date has synthesized the literature between cannabis use and motivation with sensitivity to how motivation was measured or whether existing relationships can provide support to draw cause-effect conclusions. A review of existing research found differences in the operationalization and measurement of motivation, a lack of longitudinal research, and varying approaches to ruling out potential confounding effects of constructs such as depression. Future research is needed to establish a causal relationship between cannabis use and changes in motivation or reward sensitivity in humans.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Distinguish motivation from reward sensitivity
  2. Describe the relationship between cannabis use and motivation or reward sensitivity
  3. List 2 major limitations of existing research that limits our ability to conclude cannabis use causes decreases in motivation or reward sensitivity

Course Outline:

  • Read and understand Nonacute effects of cannabis use on motivation and reward sensitivity in humans: A systematic review
  • Review the Course Description and Learning Objectives
  • Reflect on the strength of the evidence regarding cannabis use as having a specific effect on motivation and reward sensitivity
  • Work through the post-test questions; keep in mind that answer selections should be derived from the respective article
  • Return to the referenced article for any missed questions and/or to better understand the strengths and weaknesses of research describing the link between cannabis use and decreased levels of motivation or reward sensitivity
