More possible good news for insomniacs?
The study compared various compositions of cannabis ingredients to treat insomnia vs. Diazepam, the active ingredient in Valium.
"Several formulations reached close to 100% of the efficacy of Diazepam, with one formulation in particular increasing sleep duration by 150%. Kanabo Research was able to prove synergy, with greater efficacy when all three cannabinoids and terpenes were present than when used singularly. When combined, even a small amount of each contributed to the efficacy of the formulation."
"As a secondary finding, the study established the value of THC as an integral part of Kanabo Research’s formulations. Even in small doses, THC generates a synergistic effect with other cannabinoids and terpenes. This emphasizes and reiterates the value of the whole plant profile, especially when compared to isolates of cannabinoids. These are promising results for patients in light of the well documented much less severe side effects associated with low THC compositions in comparison to Diazepam."
Kanbo is developing two product lines, one requiring a medical cannabis prescription and one over the counter without THC.
