Study: CBD-Rich Cannabis Extracts Present “a Better Therapeutic Profile” Than Pure CBD

CBD-rich extracts which contain at least a small amounts of other cannabinoids “present a better therapeutic profile” than CBD alone, according to a new study published by the journal Frontiers in Neurology.

The study, titled Potential Clinical Benefits of CBD-Rich Cannabis Extracts Over Purified CBD in Treatment-Resistant Epilepsy, states that the improved benefits of high-CBD cannabis extracts over pure CBD “is likely due to synergistic effects of CBD with other phytocompounds (aka Entourage effect)”.

According to the study’s abstract. “This meta-analysis paper describes the analysis of observational clinical studies on the treatment of refractory epilepsy with cannabidiol (CBD)-based products. Beyond attempting to establish the safety and efficacy of such products, we also investigated if there is enough evidence to assume any difference in efficacy between CBD-rich extracts compared to purified CBD products.”

Introducing CBD Crystalline, Coming in at 99% CBD

In recent weeks THC-A crystalline has been all the rage, and for good reason; it is one of the purest forms of THC available at 99.99% THC. This is achieved using no chemical additives. Now, cannabidiol’s (CBD) equivalent has hit the market, and it has the potential to be a game-changer.

For those unaware, CBD is a compound found in cannabis that doesn’t have a psychoactive effect such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabis products and even strains that are low in THC and high in CBD have gained popularity in recent years; they’re perfect for children and for those who simply don’t want the “high” typically associated with cannabis.

CBD crystalline is the natural evolution of this. With a purity of 99%, it’s the purest form of CBD currently available.
