At Prospect Farms, we are continuously striving to advance research, education, and transparency in CBD. We believe that the knowledge we gain and share can help our dedicated customers better utilize the health and wellness applications of our Full Spectrum, terpene-enhanced CBD to improve their self-care and overall Quality of Life.
Not all CBD is created equal. We are committed to exceeding the highest standards of quality ingredients, terpene sources, and natural purity in Full Spectrum CBD. It is our belief that scientific studies are an immense opportunity to test the health benefits specific to our formulations as well as the efficacy of Full Spectrum CBD over Isolate, which contains only cannabidiol molecules, and Broad Spectrum, which does not include the THC found in Full Spectrum for improved activation.
Recently, we completed a 4-week Real World Evidence study in partnership with Radicle Science -- a team of data scientists and doctors from UCLA, Scripps Clinical Sleep Center, Johns Hopkins, and University of Washington. As a result of the study, we have deepened our understanding of the impact of our Prospect Farms Dream Tinctures when used nightly over the course of 4 weeks. We are proud to have contributed to one of the largest research initiatives focused on the impact of CBD on sleep to date and are excited to share the findings of the effects of Prospect Farms Full Spectrum, terpene-enhanced CBD on Sleep Quality.
The study was an open-label, 2-arm clinical trial of 207 individuals from across the United States who received either Prospect Farms 1500 mg Extra Strength Dream Tincture or Prospect Farms 750 mg Regular Strength Dream Tincture. Both Dream Tinctures include our single source, Full Spectrum CBD, produced through a Hydrocarbon extraction process to preserve efficacy. Both Dream Tinctures are enhanced with our terpene blend designed to promote calm, reduce anxiety, and improve sleep.
Using scientifically validated measures, we assessed the impact of Prospect Farms Dream Tinctures on Sleep Quality in addition to Well-being, Anxiety, and Pain among participants over the course of 4 weeks.
The study observed changes in each participant’s assessment score in four categories: Well-being, Anxiety, Sleep Disturbance, and Pain. These were each measured using the medically accepted standard for assessment validity:
Well-being: Well-being was measured using the World Health Organization (WHO)-5 Well-being Index, which assesses mental well-being on a scale of 0 to 25, with higher scores signifying greater well-being.
Anxiety: Anxiety was measured using the Overall Anxiety Severity and Impairment Scale (OASIS), which assesses anxiety on a scale of 0 to 20, with higher scores signifying higher levels of anxiety.
Sleep Disturbance: Sleep Disturbance was measured using the Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), which assesses sleep disturbance on a scale of 0 to 40, with higher scores signifying greater sleep disturbance.
Pain: Pain was measured using the PEG Scale, which assesses pain (specifically, average pain intensity [P], interference with enjoyment of life [E], and interference with general activity [G]) on a scale of 0 to 30, with higher scores signifying greater pain.
The results of the 4-week study suggest that individuals from comparable populations using Prospect Farms Dream Tincture could experience improved Sleep Quality, Well-being, Anxiety, and Pain within 30 days of initiating use.
Of those who reported having sleep problems before the study, 74% experienced a clinically meaningful improvement in Quality of Life through improved sleep as a result of using Prospect Farms Dream Tinctures.
The study also found that improvements in Sleep Quality, Anxiety, and Well-being could be realized with dosages as little as 10 mg per day. Both Prospect Farms Extra Strength Dream Tincture and Regular Strength Dream Tincture led to significant (p<0.05) improvements in all four measured categories.
Our main findings show that:
For Sleep Quality, Well-being, and Pain, the largest improvements occurred between Baseline and Week 1.
Among those who reported lower levels of Sleep Quality at Baseline 2, approximately 74% experienced a measured significant improvement in their sleep score, meaning that a significant majority realized a clinically meaningful improvement in their Quality of Life through improved sleep.
Across all health outcomes, both Prospect Farms Dream Tinctures, across varying dosage, contributed to a measured significant improvement in underlying conditions.
Participant sleep disturbance score over time
There was a significant (p<0.05) improvement in sleep quality among participants throughout the study period, with mean sleep disturbance scores dropping approximately 28.6% from baseline to week 4.
Participant well-being score over time
Overall, participants experienced significant (p<0.05) improvements to their well-being throughout the study period, with mean well-being scores increasing by approximately 20.7% from baseline to week 4.
Participant anxiety score over time
There was a significant (p<0.05) decline in anxiety throughout the study period, with mean anxiety scores dropping approximately 16.5% from baseline to week 4.
Participant pain score over time
Participants experienced significant (p<0.05) reductions in pain throughout the study period, with mean pain scores dropping approximately 25.6% from baseline to week 4. The largest reduction in pain was observed between baseline and week 1.
What it means
Prospect Farms Dream Tinctures are specifically designed for wellness benefits in the measured health categories of Sleep Quality, Anxiety, Pain, and Well-being. The findings of the study support our belief that our Full Spectrum, terpene-enhanced CBD formulations can play an important role in self-care targeting specific health outcomes.
