Next CFCR event scheduled for Thursday, March 31, 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. EST.

WASHINGTON D.C., UNITED STATES, March 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Council for Federal Cannabis Regulation (CFCR) announced today the sixth episode of their monthly webinar series entitled Understanding Real World Evidence on the Effectiveness of Cannabinoid Products. Scheduled to take place Thursday, March 31, from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m. EST, this program will dive into the results of the recent Radicle ACES (Advancing CBD Education & Science) study and highlight how the real world evidence (RWE) outcomes from the study are helping to better inform consumer perspectives on the effectiveness of cannabinoid-based products.

The program will be moderated by CFCR’s Executive Director Sarah A. Chase along with Council Advisory Board Member Jack Jacobson, a cannabis, energy and education practices advisor for Thompson Coburn LLC. The panel will consist of Pelin Thorogood and Dr. Jeffrey Chen, the two co-founders of Radicle Science, a transformative health tech company that offers a scalable path toward predicting and validating the effects of health and wellness products for ailments or the enhancement of human function; and Tim Orr, Senior VP of R&D and President of Charlotte’s Web Labs, a company that produced the now-legendary treatment regimen for six-year-old Charlotte Figi that helped to ultimately helped affect a seismic shift in public opinion toward the use of medicinal cannabis.

In a uniquely “democratized” approach to academic research, the Radicle ACES study is the first multi-brand, Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved study on CBD effectiveness across well-being, quality of life, pain, sleep disturbance, and anxiety. The results being discussed on this webinar offer insight on the findings of this first of its kind randomized controlled trial (RCT) that collected health outcome data on 13 participating CBD brands across nearly 3,000 participants throughout the U.S. over a period of four weeks.

The event will take place over the ON24 Video Conference Platform, Thursday, March 31, from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m. EST.

Through their monthly presentations, CFCR has explored various facets of the cannabis industry – including the regulatory impacts of a groundbreaking CBD study, as well as Federal and state cannabis policies. Last month’s focus on the Endocannabinoid System and its implications for research and regulation drew more than 300 attendees, pushing their total participation in these programs well past the thousand person mark.

Ongoing webinars will take place on the second or third Thursday of every month (depending on holidays), each to spotlight a wide range of industry professionals and focus on preparing to regulate and regulating today’s legal cannabis molecules and products. These virtual sessions can be viewed through the On24 platform. Each webinar will consist of a 40-minute interactive conversation followed by approximately 20-minutes of moderated audience Q&A for a total run-time of approximately one hour.
