Ecofibre has become the second cannabis company to see its hopes of registering an over-the-counter CBD product thrown into doubt after a clinical trial failed to produce the desired results.

The firm said its CANN-Sleep phase 3 clinical trial – conducted by Southern Cross University’s National Centre for Naturopathic Medicine – did not show sufficient differences between Ecofibre’s schedule 3 candidate and a placebo.

  1. What quantity of CBD was the daily dose for this trial? Anyone shed a little more light on the methodology/approach?

  2. It’s a real shame. The max allowable daily dose of CBD did seem too low. I wonder if the desire of trial patients, for CBD to be proven efficacious, plays into the placebo? Who else currently has active trials going?
