Combining Cannabinoids and Adaptogens
Our products make it easy to combine CBD with adaptogens, natural compounds that mitigate the body’s response to stress while providing a variety of health benefits nearly as impressive as CBD’s own. Adaptogens such as functional mushrooms–especially Lion’s Mane, Reishi and Cordyceps–provide many of the same benefits as the cannabinoids and terpenes discussed above, yet they do so through different mechanisms of action. Thus by combining CBD with adaptogens such as functional mushrooms, you can be sure that you’re targeting your health–or any health issues–from all angles, for a more holistic and thorough approach.
The benefits of adaptogens vary from one compound to the next. Lion’s Mane is a popular nootropic that improves cognitive function, memory, and acts as a neuroprotective and neurotrophic, containing compounds that may promote cell growth and nerve growth in the body and brain.
Lion’s Mane, Reishi, and Cordyceps are also believed to reduce anxiety and boost mood. Reishi mushrooms also improve mood, while relaxing the body and brain to combat stress and reduce fatigue. These mushrooms also boost energy levels, and cordyceps in particular is a popular workout aid for its ability to enhance exercise by allowing the body to use oxygen more efficiently during physical activity, resulting in enhanced performance and stamina.
