CHI-902 for Treatment of Social Anxiety Disorder

2019-09-17 02:47:38 | BioPortfolio


No substantial clinical trials of Cannabidiol (CBD) in Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) have yet been conducted. This randomized doubleblind, placebo-controlled trial of CBD in adults with SAD will evaluate the efficacy, tolerability and safety of CBD oil (CHI-902) in SAD. In addition, the effects of treatment with CHI-902 on the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) will be assessed by evaluating peripheral endocannabinoids (Arachidonoylethanolamide/Anandamide (AEA) and 2-Arachidonoyl glycerol (2-AG)) before and after treatment.


This study will evaluate efficacy, therapeutic effects, tolerability and safety of CBD oil in adults with SAD through a randomized placebo-controlled study design and will evaluate effects of CHI-902 on peripheral endocannabinoids (AEA and 2-AG). This study will be the first randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial conducted with CHI-902 in adults with SAD.

The study is designed to:

- Evaluate the efficacy of CHI-902 versus placebo in adults with SAD.

- Evaluate the tolerability and safety versus placebo of CHI-902 in adults with SAD.

- Explore the effects of CHI-902 versus placebo on different biomarkers in subjects with SAD.
