The Basics! 

Functionality You Will Love

01 Binders

The most commonly understand class of cannabinoids. These bind directly to your receptors and activate them. These commonly include Delta 8, 9, and 10 for the CB1 receptor and CBD for the CB2 receptor. Molecules that bind to the CB1 receptor are responsible for the "high" feeling. The CB2 receptor is more common on central nervous system cells and this is believed to be related to it's activity.

03 Antagonists

A curious class of molecules that prevents binding to the receptors. THCV is interesting as it prevents binding to the CB1 receptor leading to pronounced focus and appetite suppression effects. We offer different formulations in cartridges with CBDV as well.

02 Synergizers 

Synergizers are a more recent biochemical discovery in the cannabinoid world. There bind to the side of our receptors and modulate the efficacy of other cannabinoids. CBT is the current one we use. They can help to improve the effects of other types of applications such as salves as well as support the effects of mixed cartridges or other formulations.

04 Potentiators

These are ingredients outside of the cannabinoid class that support the primary effects of our formulations. Ingredients like lecithin's and mushroom extracts are well known for their effects in supporting even absorption or having their own effects in synergy with cannabinoids.

Cannabinoids We Use

The foundation of our business is in the proper understanding and usage of the different cannabinoids and their functions. CB1 and CB2 are G-coupled protein receptors and their effects are exponential. We utilize low dose formulations to maximize efficacy without sacrificing tolerance.

THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin)

  1. Enhanced Focus and Motivation: Some evidence suggests THCV may promote improved focus and motivation, potentially helping combat brain fog.

  2. Potential Neuroprotective Properties: THCV might exhibit neuroprotective properties, showing promise in supporting brain health.

  3. Diabetes Management: Research indicates THCV could play a role in regulating blood sugar levels, potentially aiding in diabetes management.

  4. Appetite Suppressant: THCV is thought to act as an appetite suppressant, potentially aiding weight management.

CBC (Cannabichromene)

  1. Anti-Inflammatory Properties: CBC exhibits anti-inflammatory effects, which may assist in reducing inflammation. It could potentially be helpful in conditions like arthritis or other inflammatory diseases.

  2. Neuroprotective Potential: Studies suggest that CBC might support brain health by encouraging neurogenesis (the creation of new brain cells) and enhancing the brain's ability to cope with stress.

  3. Pain Relief: CBC is believed to interact with the body's natural pain-relieving systems, showing potential as a natural painkiller. It might work synergistically with other cannabinoids for enhanced pain relief.

  4. Potential Antidepressant Effects: CBC may interact with the body's endocannabinoid system in a way that influences mood regulation. Research hints at its potential as an antidepressant, although further studies are necessary.

CBG (Cannabigerol)

  1. Antidepressant Effects: CBG's interaction with the 5HT1A receptor suggests potential antidepressant properties by modulating serotonin activity, influencing mood regulation.

  2. Neuroprotective Properties: CBG shows promise as a neuroprotectant, potentially shielding neurons from damage and supporting brain health.

  3. Anti-Inflammatory Actions: CBG exhibits anti-inflammatory properties, potentially beneficial in reducing inflammation in conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

  4. Pain Management: Some studies suggest CBG might interact with the endocannabinoid system to potentially alleviate pain, although more research is needed for conclusive evidence.
