There was a study done in April and published in “Molecules” journal that didn’t get much attention until it was published in Forbes magazine recently. For those of us in the CBD business it could well be the proverbial “elephant in the room” that many would like to sweep under the rug. Never a good idea. This study warrants further research and we are certain it will happen. It is important, very important.
This particular study was conducted on 8-week-old mice who were given doses as high as 2460 mg. of CBD, And 75% of the mice were found to have telltale signs of elevated liver enzymes. There were several mice who didn’t survive the experiment.
Like with any experiment, it needs to be followed up with rigorous peer reviews and replicable studies before any concrete conclusions can be reached.
We at Grandma Buzzbee’s believe in the conservative approach and carry the lower doses of tinctures. Less is more until “more” is SAFELY understood and there is a level of surety that there will be no harm. Hippocrates was a bit before Grandma’s time, but she would have been a groupie.
We will keep you up to date as more research surfaces. In the meantime we recommend the book “Rigor Mortis” “How Sloppy Science Creates Worthless Cures, Crushes Hopes and Wastes Billions” by Richard Harris It is an eye-opening account about what really constitutes science these days.
