Safety Assessment of a Hemp Extract using Genotoxicity and Oral Repeat-Dose Toxicity Studies in Sprague-Dawley Rats

Toxicology Reports“Cannabinoids are extracted from Cannabis sativa L. and are used for a variety of medicinal purposes.

Recently, there has been a focus on the cannabinoid Cannabidiol (CBD) and its potential benefits.

This study investigated the safety of a proprietary extract of C. sativa, consisting of 9% hemp extract (of which 6.27% is CBD) and 91% olive oil.

Given the potential of CBD for a variety of human uses and the limited data currently available, these results support that hemp extracts are likely safe human consumption and additional studies should be conducted to validate this conclusion.”
