Cannabichromene is a specialty cannabinoid which has yet to be very well researched. There is some evidence that it can boost the effectiveness of THC. This Study found that CBC can up-regulate ATP and adenosine signaling. This could explain why it is uplifting. ATP is the energy unit of the cell and adenosine signaling relates to whether we feel tired or not. For example, coffee binds to adenosine receptors disabling their effect of creating feelings of lethargy or exhaustion. CBC is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial as illustrated in this study. Cannabichromene actually works through primarily non CB1 or CB2 related mechanisms to enhance the effects of other cannabinoids, see more on that here. CBC needs to be felt to be understood so if you have not tried it yet then now is the time!

Black Pepper CO2 Extract
Contains Piperine which is often used to aid in the absorption of pharmaceuticals and natural active ingredients like Curcumin, which some studies claim has increased absorption by 2000%. We believe Piperine greatly aids in the absorption of CBD extracts and Cannabigerol. The piperine in this formula plays a critical part in the synergistic absorption complex featured in this specialty tincture. Guineensine is another active component of black pepper which has been found to be an endocannabinoid reuptake inhibiter. This is one of the same therapeutic mechanisms of action as CBD, making it a ‘Cannabimimetic’. It therefore has potential to greatly extend the benefits of the CBD and CBG. The volatile oil content (essential oils) which makes up 34% of our CO2 extract consists of β-Caryophyllene and Myrcene, two of the most therapeutic terpenes well researched.

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our Olive Oil comes directly from Greece. We are personal friends with the farmer who grows, harvests, fresh presses and imports the oil. This olive oil is like no other on the shelf, it is zesty with fruity and spicy notes. This farm is always the first to harvest so you are getting the most phytonutrient dense olive oil possible. It is so raw there may even be some olive particulates suspended in it. Olive oil is high in oleic acid, which makes up about 80% of the oil. David Sinclair has said that Oleic Acid actually activates SIRT1 (longevity pathway) and can be fast mimicking for healthy aging benefits, in this video he describes how Oleic Acid is 10x the potency of Resveratrol. We care about our ingredients so much that even our carrier oil is medicinal.
