RationaleCue-elicited craving and stress responses have been identified as predictors of relapse in drug dependence, but little research exists on the contribution of these factors to marijuana use specifically.ObjectivesThe aims of the present study were to evaluate (1) responses to a psychological stressor, (2) responses to marijuana-related cues, and (3) if an exposure to a psychological stressor augmented craving subsequently elicited by marijuana-related cue exposure in marijuana-dependent… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Laboratory-induced stress and craving among individuals with prescription opioid dependence.
TLDR
Internal validity of the stress task was demonstrated, as evidenced by significantly higher subjective stress, as well as cortisol, heart rate and blood pressure in the TSST compared to the no-stress group. Expand
Magnitude and duration of cue-induced craving for marijuana in volunteers with cannabis use disorder.
TLDR
Presentation of polysensory MJ cues increased MJ craving, anxiety and diastolic BP relative to baseline and neutral cues, confirming that carry-over effects from drug cue presentation must be considered in cue reactivity studies. Expand
Exacerbated Craving in the Presence of Stress and Drug Cues in Drug-Dependent Patients
TLDR
Effects of momentary drug-cue exposure and stress (and their interaction) on momentary ratings of cocaine and heroin craving were tested and appeared additive for most participants, more than additive for a sizeable minority, and competitive in very few. Expand
Cue-elicited increases in incentive salience for marijuana: Craving, demand, and attentional bias.
TLDR
Greater incentive salience indexed by subjective, behavioral economic, and implicit measures was observed after marijuana versus neutral cues, supporting multidimensional assessment and highlighting the utility of a behavioral economic approach in detecting cue-elicited changes in marijuana incentive Salience. Expand
Weaker Memory Performance Exacerbates Stress-Induced Cannabis Craving in Youths’ Daily Lives
TLDR
Findings suggest that stronger WM protects against craving at more stressful moments, and that adolescents with weaker WM experienced stronger craving at higher-stress moments but not when faced with cues. Expand
Impact of acute guanfacine administration on stress and cue reactivity in cocaine-dependent individuals
TLDR
This study found no effects of a single 2 mg dose of guanfacine on reactivity to stress and cues alone or on the interaction of stress and drug cues in cocaine-dependent individuals. Expand
Laboratory-induced stress and craving predict opioid use during follow-up among individuals with prescription opioid use disorder.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that elevated cue-induced craving, either in the context of a stressor or not, is associated with shortened time to opioid use, whereas stress reactivity impacts the amount of opioids consumed. Expand
Understanding the effects of stress and alcohol cues on motivation for alcohol via behavioral economics.
TLDR
unique behavioral economic dimensions of motivation for alcohol following acute stress and an alcohol cue exposure are revealed, as the first application of this approach to understanding the role of stress in drug motivation. Expand
Effect of oral THC pretreatment on marijuana cue-induced responses in cannabis dependent volunteers.
TLDR
Results of this study suggest oral THC may be effective for reducing marijuana cue-elicited (conditioned) effects, and that some of these effects may be sex-related. Expand
Effects of repeated cue exposure on cannabis craving
TLDR
There is a need for a better understanding of the factors that contribute to continued drug use despite quit attempts, and significant effects of initial cannabis cue exposure on VAS craving responses and Subject-Rated Physiological measures relative to the neutral cue exposure condition. Expand

An acute psychosocial stressor does not potentiate alcohol cue reactivity in non-treatment-seeking alcoholics.
TLDR
In this well-controlled clinical laboratory study of non-treatment-seeking alcoholics, an acute psychological stressor did not make an alcohol cue a more potent urge-inducing stimulus, and stress had no effect on general alcohol craving. Expand
Stress-induced and alcohol cue-induced craving in recently abstinent alcohol-dependent individuals.
TLDR
Although both stress and alcohol cues produce increases in anxiety associated with alcohol craving, each produced a dissociable psychobiological state involving subjective emotional, cardiovascular, and cortisol responses that could have significant implications for understanding the specific psychobiology associated with stress or alcohol cue exposure. Expand
Marijuana craving in the brain
TLDR
Cue-elicited craving for marijuana activates the reward neurocircuitry associated with the neuropathology of addiction, and the magnitude of activation of these structures is associated with severity of cannabis-related problems. Expand
Psychological distress and marijuana use before and after treatment: testing cognitive-behavioral matching hypotheses.
TLDR
Efficacy increased and marijuana use decreased following treatment but the RPSG treatment did not have greater benefit for psychologically distressed participants, and all participants tended to have lower self-efficacy for NPD situations than PD situations. Expand
Gender specific effects of a mild stressor on alcohol cue reactivity in heavy social drinkers
TLDR
Stressed females did not show an increase from baseline in the skin conductance response during the alcohol cue-exposure session, which was observed in the non-stressed females; they consumed less alcohol than males under stress, suggesting that females when in a negative mood may be less sensitive to positive incentive processes mediating cue reactivity compared to males. Expand
Response to social stress, urge to smoke, and smoking cessation.
TLDR
It is suggested that subjective affective and efficacy responses during a stressful social encounter are associated with smoking urges; however, urges and these responses may be related in different ways to the probability of smoking cessation. Expand
Cold pressor task reactivity: predictors of alcohol use among alcohol-dependent individuals with and without comorbid posttraumatic stress disorder.
TLDR
These preliminary findings demonstrate significant differences between the alcohol-only and the alcohol/PTSD group in predictors of relapse and may help shed light on the mechanistic relationship between stress reactivity and increased risk for alcohol relapse and dependence in individuals with and without other Axis I comorbidity. Expand
Enhanced Negative Emotion and Alcohol Craving, and Altered Physiological Responses Following Stress and Cue Exposure in Alcohol Dependent Individuals
TLDR
These data are the first to document that stress and cue exposure induce a persistent negative emotion-related alcohol craving state in abstinent alcoholics accompanied by dysregulated HPA and physiological arousal responses. Expand
Cue reactivity in young marijuana smokers: a preliminary investigation.
TLDR
The procedure appears to elicit cue reactivity among adolescents and young adults with cannabis use disorders and should be further evaluated and refined with a larger sample. Expand
Effect of positive and negative affective stimuli and beverage cues on measures of craving in non treatment-seeking alcoholics
TLDR
It is found that positive affective stimuli commonly associated with drinking situations can induce craving in the absence of alcohol cues, and mixed-effect models revealed a significant main effect of beverage and positive (but not negative) affective stimulus on subjective strength of craving.
