Study Description

Brief Summary

This study is intended to investigate the absorption of cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabidiol acid (CBD-A) in plasma from an oral delivery of a single dose of full spectrum hemp extract at two concentrations over a 4-hour timeline.

  • Dietary Supplement: 15 mg/g Full Spectrum Hemp Extract
  • Dietary Supplement: 50 mg/g Full Spectrum Hemp Extract

Detailed Description

This study is designed to determine the time to maximum plasma concentration of CBD and CBD-A after an oral dose of standardized full spectrum hemp extract over a 4-hour timeline. This study is designed to include two arms. Each arm will be delivered a different concentration of standardized full spectrum hemp extract, either 15 mg or 50 mg. Throughout the course of the study all participants will be asked to provide four (4) plasma samples, 10 randomly selected participants will be asked to provide five (5) plasma samples. Samples will then be evaluated using a validated LC-MS/MS method to develop a blood concentration time curve in order to determine time to reach maximum blood concentration. This trial is double-blinded with two arms enrolling only healthy individuals. The participants randomized for a fifth blood draw will be randomly selected from these two arms.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. Time to maximum plasma concentration [Over 4 hours]

    To determine the time to maximum plasma concentration of cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabidiol acid (CBD-A) from an oral delivery of a single dose of standardized 15 mg or 50 mg full spectrum hemp extract

Secondary Outcome Measures

  1. Detectable THC [Over 4 hours]

    To determine if the oral delivery of a full spectrum hemp extract standardized to less than 0.3% ∆^9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) results in detectable amounts of THC in plasma.

Other Outcome Measures

  1. Present in measurable amount over time [7 - 10 days]

    To determine if CBD, CBD-A, or THC are present 7 to 10 days after a single oral dose of 15 mg or 50 mg standardized full spectrum hemp extract.
