Assessing The Efficacy of

Cannabis Compositions

Our study with researchers at
the University of Michigan,
LEVEL and Overcome

The focus of this study is to address the gaps in cannabinoid research related to the efficacy of unique product formulations and dosing for specific types of chronic pain. To get accurate dosing measurements all study products are tablets or capsules. 

This is one of the first studies to look at efficacy trends related to dosing combined with unique product formulations.

Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis are the specific types of chronic pain being studied.

There are upwards of 40 million individuals living with these conditions and even more battling chronic pain. This study is a step in the direction of helping patients and practitioners have a better understanding of how to properly use cannabinoid medicine as a natural and effective therapy.
