Our Science Supporting Your Performance

Innovative Technologies

We have your back when it comes to science and quality. Whether state-of-the-art seed science, the newest CO2 extraction technology, or the patented treatment of our mix that speeds up onset and increases bioavailability, we are committed to developing world-class products for top performers.

Dehydration Synthesis

Lexaria Bioscience’s special DehydraTECH™ technology ensures a faster onset and higher bio-absorption of treated nutrients such as our Lifter CBD. In the patented DehydraTECH™ process the hemp oil and CBD molecule is combined with a long chain fatty acid, a high oleic organic sunflower oil. The combination including the CBD is then dehydrated to a powdered substrate that acts as a carrier.

Because of the formulation and the processing, the cannabinoids are believed to bypass the liver, avoiding first-pass liver metabolism, and pass into the bloodstream by way of lymphatic circulation.

This results in faster onset and higher bio-absorption. Using the DehydraTECH™ process led to effects being felt within the first 15-20 minutes after ingestion. And, by avoiding first-pass liver metabolism, DehydraTECH™ mitigates unwanted side effects and achieves bio-absorption levels similar to absorption by inhalation. Laboratory studies indicated DehydraTECH™ achieved a CBD blood concentration level that was 475% more than a generic industry medium chain triglyceride (“MCT”) coconut-oil formulation just 15 minutes after dosing.

Additional laboratory studies indicate use of DehydraTECH™ technology achieved an average brain tissue accumulation level that was much higher than MCT oil formulations.

CBD-Infused Performance Tape

Kinesiology tape is designed to be slightly stretched and applied atop the skin so it essentially mimics the skin’s elasticity. In doing so, it subtly lifts the skin, creating microscopic space between the skin and tissues underneath it. This allows fluids to flow more freely, which in turn helps prevent irritation, inflammation and pain or speed up the healing process in areas of the body where the tape is located.

Unlike standard medical tape, SummaTape’s cotton/spandex cloth is lightweight and stretches, supporting your dexterity while helping avoid overextension of your muscles, tendons and joints. SummaTape’s adhesive matrix is infused with our CBD and menthol. The adhesive is water-based acrylic. The Kollidon CL-M is an inert material for stabilization which aids with the release of the CBD and menthol from the tape to the skin and helps with bioavailability and skin penetration to reach the joints and ligaments.

Both the cotton and synthetic materials create elasticity which provides stable support without restricting range of motion like a non-stretch tape. The menthol provides a cooling effect and has anti-inflammatory action. CBD may help reduce inflammation, speed up recovery, and contribute to a calming energy.*

Entourage Of Healthy Ingredients

We went on a mission to find the best ingredients to bring together for you in our products. We found them in two longstanding family businesses who care as much about you as they do their own names.

Award-winning ”lifter” Hemp Strain

CBD and Minor Cannabinoids

Our award-winning "Lifter" hemp is chock full of beneficial nutrients. It's grown on a 4th generation family farm that was the first to receive the global certification for Good Agricultural Practices. The dominant player in Lifter, cannabidiol ("CBD"), has a talented cast of over 100 supporting actors that include "minor" cannabinoids and terpenes. They all work together harmoniously to bring you a symphony of healthy benefits.

CBD and the other “minor” cannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp plant attach to receptors in the Endocannabinoid System throughout the central and peripheral nervous system in the human body. They then work to maintain or reestablish the state of homeostasis - or balance – in the body and is often considered to be an adaptogen. Consequently, consumers use CBD for a wide variety of purported benefits including reducing inflammation and relieving pain from strenuous activities, lowering stress and worry from various challenges they confront in their lives, and restoring a calm balance through better rest, sleep, and recovery from physical and mental exertion.

CBD and other cannabinoids are increasingly being studied for a variety of health benefits. Though it's generally well-tolerated, CBD can cause side effects, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue. CBD can potentially interact with other medications such as blood thinners. So, if you are unsure whether CBD is right for you, consult your healthcare provider.

Tantalizing Terpenes

Our unique, science-driven products contain broad spectrum cannabidiol (“CBD”) derived from the award-winning “Lifter” hemp strain. In processing our CBD, the plant’s original terpenes and other phyto cannabinoids such as CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), CBC (cannabichromene) among others have been left in the extract preserving the integrity of the plant’s natural chemistry.

This ensures that the cannabinoids and terpenes work together synergistically as an ensemble in what’s referred to as the “entourage effect” widely regarded as the most efficacious way to consume CBD. A clean carbon dioxide CO2 process used to extract a rich mix of hemp’s beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and more. Furthermore, this extraction process is gentle and efficient and does not require the use of heat or organic solvents, preserving all the compounds in hemp.

The farm that grew our “Lifter” CBD strain is the first hemp farm worldwide to become certified as Global GAP (Good Agricultural Practices)

Cognitive Benefits From A Patented Spearmint Extract

After scouring the landscape for a natural ingredient to strengthen brain health and cognitive function, we landed on Neumentix™. In addition to reducing oxidative stress and associated inflammation, research showed that Neumentix™ protects and supports the growth of new neurons. Derived from a natural patented spearmint extract, the key polyphenols present in Neumentix™ also help modulate the level of one of the neurotransmitters involved in learning, memory and neuroprotection.

Recent research using Neumentix™ showed improved cognitive and physical performance after just 30 days of supplementation. Other studies showed both improvements in working memory and ease of falling asleep. “Working memory” is a type of short-term memory that allows for storage and use of sound and speech as well as visual and spatial information.

Working memory facilitates attention and multi-tasking among other things. In one 90-day study using Neumentix™, young, healthy, active men and women experienced an 11% improvement in focus. Using the Makoto Arena II assessment tool, participants taking Neumentix™ showed statistically significant improvements including choice reaction performance, agility and cross-body movements.

Such testing indicates that daily supplementation with the natural nootropic, Neumentix™ may help give Gamers and other athletes the faster reaction and focus they seek.
