States of Mind Survey
We are delighted announce our new States of Mind Survey. This survey aims to record self-assessment ratings of states of mind – such as feelings of calm, focus, creativity and whether you are sleeping well – after taking a medicinal plant or product that you were going to take anyway.
The results from these self-assessment scales are seen as important in studying the self-rated effects of medicinal plants. The results will be used to contribute to the growing body of evidence behind the use of medicinal plants for health and medicine today.
If you would like to take part please complete the survey using the QR code or follow this link https://forms.office.com/r/ZEvTZx2j0b.
