10:15 am – 11:00 am – So, You Think You Can CBD…Hemp Derived vs Cannabis Derived CBD and Full Spectrum vs. Broad Spectrum vs. Isolate
In today’s early stages of the legal hemp marketplace, there are thousands of CBD products available, yet not much in the way of differentiation – at least not knowingly in most cases. All legitimate CBD products contain at least some amount of cannabidiol, but they may also contain (or specifically not contain) other elements, depending on how they’re labeled. In this panel, we examine and specifically define the terms relating to this phenomenon: hemp-derived, cannabis-derived, full spectrum, broad spectrum, CBD isolate and more.
11:15 am – 12:00 pm – How Much is Right for You: The Science of CBD Dosing
One of the challenges in the emerging CBD market is the lack of robust clinical research that can be used to guide dosing guidelines. This is especially problematic in people with comorbidities or on other medications who would like to explore taking these products medicinally too. Even so, crowdsourcing the anecdotal data has allowed companies to develop a functional measure of how much CBD is needed for different conditions. This system, albeit lacking in strong foundations in clinical trials, in some ways is good enough. But when it comes to a product we want to promote as medication, we have a responsibility to produce real data from which to work off of.
