Study is History’s Largest Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial on CBN Formulations
PALMETTO, Fla. – (March 10, 2023) – Sunmed™ | Your CBD Store®, the largest hemp retailer in America known for shaking up the hemp and CBD industry, recently partnered with Radicle Science, history’s first and only proof-as-a-service company, to determine the most efficient formulation of CBN for improving sleep. Radicle Science will conduct a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved clinical trial, the gold-standard approach to medical research.
While CBN has become a popular cannabinoid for sleep support, there is a lack of scientific literature on what dose is optimal for improving sleep. This historic clinical trial will provide some of the first rigorous human data on how different dosages of CBN impact sleep. The findings will be paramount to future CBN formulations by Sunmed.
“Radicle Science is a great partner for measuring rigorous outcomes and generating objective proof,” Sunmed Chief Science Officer Dr. Tony Ferrari said. “Their team of clinicians and scientists truly understand the value of clinical evidence in shaping important business and health decisions. This study will hopefully be the first of many where we can probe new formulations’ efficacy to inform the best way to bring them to market.”
Of the three groups of study participants, one will receive a low dosage of proprietary Sunmed CBN gummy formulation, one group will receive a high dosage and the control group will receive placebo. This large-scale trial of a minimum of 750 participants will study a diverse population of Americans with sleep disturbances over six weeks, monitoring their sleep and other health outcomes often associated with sleep quality.
“This is history’s first large-scale, blinded randomized placebo-controlled trials testing the impact of different dosages of CBN on sleep disturbance,” Radicle Science CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Jeff Chen, MD said. “We can’t wait to analyze the data and better understand how CBN affects sleep.”
Radicle Science clinical trials are completely independent third-party studies that are also standardized, reducing the risk of bias inherent to customized studies. Radicle Science is vertically integrated and executes its studies end-to-end, from the standardized IRB-approved master protocol design, recruitment of participants and shipment of product to data collection and analysis.
“Our standardized sleep study protocol is designed to reveal how products impact the onset and quality of sleep, as well as health outcomes associated with sleep quality including fatigue, cognitive function and mood,” Radicle Science Chief Research Officer Dr. Emily Pauli said.
