Why do I need to give my health history?

We anticipate seeing a change in how you feel over time as you take the cannabidiol (CBD). In order to monitor this progress, we need to understand how you are feeling before you start. As we collect this information for you and many others, we will create a database of information than can be used to show what CBD can do and what it will not do.

Can I sign up for an auto ship?

Because of our requirement to follow our participants closely, we must require the monthly questionnaire be completed each month before we can provide the study medication.

Do I need to complete the survey every month?

Yes

Why do I need to answer health questions again every month?

The type of study we are performing allows us to provide study medication to all our participants, but it also requires that we pay close attention and collect ongoing information about those participants.

How long is the study?

This is a longitudinal study which means we are performing this study until we have statistically viable results to present.  Normally longitudinal studies are designed to go for years.

Is my personal health information safe?

Yes. We are governed by the same rules that your doctor’s office has to follow (HIPAA). For more details you can follow this link.

What is the cost to participate in the study?

The participation fee is $280 per month. This cost does not change depending upon how much study medication you will be taking.

How do I pay for my study participation?

We have a PayPal account that allows us to take all major credit cards online and over the phone or you can come by the office and pay with cash or check.

Why do I have to pay?

Many people are used to an FDA, double blind, placebo study which by law cannot charge for participation. Our study is different. Ours is an HHS study (Health and Human Services) and will not be using placebos. Every participant will receive actual study medication. Also, we are not using Federal grant money for our study. Our funding comes directly from our participants.

Will I be able to see the results of the study?

No. The information we are gathering is privacy protected. We will be submitting regular reports to the state legislation, but no personal information will be visible in those reports.

Can I share my study medication with others?

No, this is still a highly regulated substance and your participation is dependent upon taking the CBD gel caps as directed.

When and how should I take the CBD gel caps?

We typically advise taking it with food, at least initially, with your morning and then evening meals.

Do I need to stop taking my current medications?

We do not require you stop taking your medications for our study. You should talk to your doctor about your medications if you feel they need to be adjusted. We highly recommend you visit with your doctor before making any changes.

Are there any side effects?

Some people have expressed some mild indigestion at first. This is why we ask that you take it with food, at least at first.

Are there any drug interactions?

Talk to your own doctor who knows your history and is responsible for your current medication regimen. If your doctor has questions we would be happy to address those.

How long until I see the effects of the study medication?

Not everyone will experience the same results. Some chronic pain may take longer to respond. You may want to ask our doctor about a higher dose if you don’t notice any benefit within the first 2-3 weeks. If you have questions please call us at 801-420-5537.

How does it work?

This is a good question with a very complex answer. Simply, every cell in your body is designed to absorb specific chemicals. Cannabidiol is absorbed by the Endocannabinoid system that networks throughout the cells of the body. This system has been shown to affect many processes that involve pain relief, stress and anxiety. Some things make the absorption process easier, micellization is one of them. Our product has undergone micellization to greatly enhance the cells ability to absorb the CBD.

How is this different than going to the local health food store?

We provide a consistent quality gel cap via a study that has a MD monitoring what you are taking, how much and its effects on a monthly basis.

Is this Medical Marijuana?

No. In the State of Utah, Medical Marijuana is not legal. Our study uses CBD which is legal in Utah through our study. Medical Marijuana is not legal in the state of Utah and we do not yet know if it will be or when it will be. This study is legal in the state of Utah and it is available right now.

Will I show positive on a drug screen?

No. Drug screenings for Marijuana screen for the chemical delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). There is no measurable amount of THC in our study medication and so your urine will not show positive for THC.

Will this get me high?

No. Our current study is using CBD that has been analyzed to ensure there is no measurable amount of THC. Our CBD gel caps will not make you “high.”
