BLUFFDALE, Utah, May 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Med7, LLC (www.Med7cbd.com) and HempCo, Inc. announce the completion of a human clinical study in patients with Type II Diabetes using Purzorb technology, now trademarked as Hempzorb81TM. "This study will provide our customers and providers with evidence based products not seen to this point in the Industrial Hemp and CBD market place," said Matt Smith, CEO of Med7. This study was done with support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as part of their small business grant program.
In this placebo-controlled study on 150 patients with Type II Diabetes, Hempzorb81TM demonstrated a significant effect on lowering the A1c with an average drop of 1.2 points versus placebo over six-months. Patients on Hempzorb81TM also lost an average of 14 lbs. and reduced their girth by 4 inches over placebo (www.hempzorb81.org).
Cannabidiol (CBD) alone or in combination with other cannabinoids has never shown a proven clinical effect in glucose management in large placebo-controlled studies. "A naturally occurring whole plant extract with multiple cannabinoids and other natural components can have strong entourage effects on cannabinoid receptors if they can get into the blood stream effectively," according to Paul Murray, CEO of HempCo. "These studies should give consumers and providers confidence that there are hemp products containing CBD that are backed by human clinical studies."
Med7 also received support from the NIH with two other studies: The effect of Hempzorb81TM in Sleep Cycles and in patients with COVID-19. "The study in COVID-19 patients was serendipitous to our Diabetes study and the pandemic. In the first few months of this clinical trial, COVID-19 hit the study group hard," said Smith. "None of the study subjects with COVID-19 dropped out of the study or were hospitalized so we studied these patients more closely. We are evaluating these results and hope to release them soon."
Med7 is a technology-driven health and wellness company that distributes full spectrum hemp CBD oil products using Purzorb to medical professionals. Purzorb is a patent pending technology that mimics the body's natural process of absorption by converting oil-based nutrients into water-soluble products.
