Dosing is one of the most perplexing issues facing the CBD and cannabinoid industry. We all know the medical adage, start low and go slow. But what if a client/consumer uses CBD for a specific condition? Perhaps your CBD brand targets a certain demographic. Unique conditions require precise solutions. Companies that adopt a one-size-fits-all policy toward dosing are bound to disappoint their fan base. Cannabinoids may exhibit biphasic effects, meaning a low dose affects the consumer in an opposite way compared to a high dose. Administration route and product composition also affect dosing. Certain individuals may even be deficient in natural cannabinoids. This panel explores a range of common conditions and the CBD doses required to address them.

12:30 pm – 1:15 pm – The Cutting Edge of Cannabinoid Science and Pharmacology
Science has transformed the world of cannabinoids. CBD was once a relatively obscure, banned substance. But scientific research landed this compound in the hands of physicians, engineers, lawmakers, and consumers. In fact, research fuels innovation. Designers rely on emerging scientific evidence to develop cannabinoid products that meet the needs of an evolving market. Where is the science of CBD today? The past year’s breakthroughs in CBD research include medication interactions, epilepsy, neuroscience, dermatological applications, mental health disorders, addiction/relapse, and biochemistry. This council of established scientists will push your company to the cutting edge of chemical/medical advancement in the field.
The pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of cannabinoids are greatly affected by various factors, such as the amount and type of food eaten in a given day, whether other substances, including medications, were taken, and how they were consumed (vape, oil, edible, etc.). For these reasons and more, despite decades of research, the best advice to offer new users remains the “start low, go slow” method, which is as unscientific as it comes.

1:30 pm – 2:15 pm – Creating Novel CBD Formulations and Blends
While scores of people may benefit from CBD isolates, many more have reported respite from their ailments using full-spectrum products that contain many more of the natural molecules native to hemp, like other cannabinoids and terpenes.

These products may contain other minor cannabinoids and terpenes, but the inclusion of these ingredients are done with purposeful intent, such as creating products designed as sleep aids, or for treatment of pain or anxiety. Additionally, blending these formulations with other dietary supplements such as ginseng or melatonin can present an exciting new product line that combine traditional supplements with the surging interest in hemp-derived molecules, thereby presenting the best of both worlds. This panel will help you understand what types of products are currently in demand, and will illustrate how the rapidly evolving CBD industry is changing.
