Post Marketing Safety of Plus CBD™ Products, a Full Spectrum Hemp Extract: A 2-Year Experience
The market for products featuring hemp extracts is large and growing larger. However, safety concerns have been raised by medical and regulatory agencies. Post marketing surveillance of full spectrum hemp extract (FSHE) products manufactured and distributed by CV Sciences (CVSI) and traded under the brand PlusCBD™ was conducted over a 2-year period (2018-2019). The safety of these products was assessed by analyzing adverse events reports. From a total of approximately five million product units sold during the 2-year period, 1,429 (0.03%) adverse events (AE) were reported in 1,151 unique customers. Of those, only two were classified as serious AEs. For orally ingested products, the most common types of AEs reported were gastrointestinal (e.g. abdominal discomfort), while for topically applied products, the most reports mentioned dermatological symptoms (e.g. rashes). There has been no evidence of liver toxicity associated with CVSI products. Based on this longitudinal dataset, the products manufactured using CVSI’s proprietary processes are safe and well tolerated at the recommended doses.

SAN DIEGO, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CV Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:CVSI) (the “Company”, “CV Sciences”, “our”, “us” or “we”), a preeminent leader in hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD) products, today announced the launch of PlusCBD™ Calm and Sleep: two flavorful gummies that support healthy stress responses and sleep cycles for people getting back to their normal routines.
Each PlusCBD™ Calm gummy contains 10mg of CBD derived from sustainable hemp and two neurologically-active amino acids: 5-HTP and L-Theanine. Studies have shown that 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a direct precursor for synthesis of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which may facilitate calm feelings and a positive mood. L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that has been extensively researched for stress management. The synergy between L-Theanine and 5-HTP, together with PlusCBD™ promotes a balanced brain chemistry, which may help consumers manage occasional anxiety that can result from life’s stressors.
PlusCBD™ Sleep gummies also contain 10mg of CBD, in addition to active ingredients – including melatonin, magnolia bark and lemon balm, which work together to support a healthy circadian rhythm. Pre-clinical studies have shown that compounds found in magnolia bark extract may soothe nerves through the modulation of certain neurotransmitters, including GABA and also work with the endocannabinoid system to support relaxation. Lemon balm, which has been used as an herbal medicine around the world for decades, also contains active compounds that support the GABA neurotransmitter system, which studies have linked to promoting restful sleep.
CV Sciences’ latest offerings are third-party tested and formulated by trusted experts to ensure each product contains meaningful amounts of active ingredients that are scientifically researched. PlusCBD™ Calm and Sleep gummies contain no artificial flavoring or sweeteners, making them an attractive option for those looking to support their stress response and sleep cycle without artificial additives. Both products will be available for purchase online at www.pluscbdoil.com/cbd-gummies-for-sleep-and-calm.html beginning today, May 11, 2021, and at retailers later this year.
“We are excited to expand our line of PlusCBD™ gummies to help even more consumers sleep and relax in the face of daily stressors that we encounter as we transition back to work and school,” said Joseph Dowling, Chief Executive Officer of CV Sciences. “Our Calm and Sleep gummies underscore the Company’s ongoing commitment to advancing the CBD industry through science-backed formulations.”
