There is no doubt that one of the main priorities of Charlotte’s Web Holdings, Inc. is to adequately support with scientific data all that is related to the benefits extracted from full-spectrum hemp. That is why, some time ago, the company’s science division decided to join forces with the Colorado State University (CSU) College of Agricultural Sciences to complete one of three collaborative metabolomic hemp studies. The idea is to have a more in-depth study of the complex chemical profile found in the full-spectrum hemp extracts grown by Charlotte’s Web in the US.
In a more detailed way, the studies are intended to analyze and explore the degree to which geographic regions, environmental conditions, harvesting times, and even different extraction methods may influence the phytochemical profile of the hemp plant. While it is true that several phases are still to be carried out, the first one was to analyze how to explicitly standardize the processing and extraction protocols of the hemp harvest in order to obtain a chemical profile with a high degree of consistency.
The study was under the supervision of Dr. Jessica Prenni, Associate Professor in the Department of Horticulture at CSU. Deanie Elsner, CEO of Charlotte’s Web, said, “This is one of more than a dozen third-party scientific investigations Charlotte’s Web is conducting on the efficacy and safety of our hemp extracts. We are committed to advancing the science of hemp to support personal health and wellness through these collaborative investigations. We are honored to work with Dr. Prenni and the team at Colorado State University.”
It took more than two years of ongoing collaboration of scientists to conclude this Phase I research, and it is reported that it will undergo a review process and then be formally published in several sections. With more studies coming, this collaboration is proving vital to understanding better hemp and its benefits.
