Satipharm Gelpell® Technology
Satipharm's Gelpell® technology improves the body's absorption of CBD and other cannabinoids through a patented formulation of CBD hemp extract contained in seamless Gelpell® gelatine biospheres. The Gelpell® biospheres are placed in gastro-resistant capsules ensuring the timely release of CBD in the small intestine, thereby improving bioavailability, and further ensuring patients receive a consistent dose of CBD in every Satipharm CBD Gelpell® capsule.
Satipharm's proprietary CBD Gelpell® capsules have been used in two separate clinical trials, making them one of the most advanced CBD products available in the market.
Phase 1 Clinical Trial
Conducted in 2016, the first clinical trial demonstrated the safety and superior bioavailability of Satipharm's CBD Gelpell® capsules in comparison to an oromucosal formulation in humans.
Phase 2 Clinical Trial
The second clinical trial, completed in 2018, further demonstrated that the patented Satipharm CBD Gelpell® formulation reduced epileptic seizures in paediatric patients with very severe, uncontrolled, treatment-resistent epilepsy (TRE) by a remarkable 73.4%, as well as evidencing marked reductions in seizure severity. The result was meaningful improvement in patient functioning as expressed by caregivers' global impressions.
