Medical Marijuana, Inc. Subsidiary Kannaway® Announces Positive Preliminary Results of Validcare CBD Safety Study
SAN DIEGO, CA, May 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA) (the “Company”), the first-ever publicly traded cannabis company in the United States that launched the world’s first-ever cannabis-derived nutraceutical products, brands, and supply chain, announced today that its subsidiary Kannaway® has participated in the industry-led cannabidiol (CBD) Safety Study and that its preliminary results, released this week, are overwhelmingly positive for the safety profile of CBD. The study abstract can be viewed here.
Validcare acted as CRO for the study, which was completed on March 22, 2022, and involved 1,061 U.S. participants and 17 CBD companies, including Kannaway®. All product companies supplied certificates of analysis (COAs) which were confirmed by third-party labs to ensure product label accuracy.
These new results will provide the FDA with the data needed to address its safety concerns regarding CBD. Specifically, the results highlight that daily consumption across a range of retail products and serving sizes is not associated with elevated liver tests, low testosterone levels, or daytime drowsiness.
“We hope that these results, paired with the results from the first cohort of the study, will persuade the FDA to take steps to regulate CBD,” said Blake Schroeder, CEO of Medical Marijuana, Inc. and Kannaway®. “If this were to happen, we could expect the addressable market size to double from present levels as more large chain retailers become more comfortable with the sales of these CBD products upon their shelves and fewer consumers feel hesitant about trying CBD.”
Further comments from the Hemp Roundtable and other participating companies can be found here. The results will be shared with the FDA on May 20, 2022.
