Let’s talk a little more about these exciting active ingredients in our CBD Energy capsules, a great herbal addition to certain fitness regimens, to improve physical and sexual performance, and boost cognitive functions.
90-100mg Caffeine Per CBD Energy Capsule
What this means is that generally speaking, each capsule has the average amount of caffeine you’d find in an average cup of Joe. We love coffee around here, yes it varies depending on the roast and blend, but we don’t use some ultra-rare tropical coffee extract for this formulation. It’s just caffeine for a boost.
Rhodiola Rosea Extract
This herb thrives in cold, rugged and mountainous regions of Europe and Asia, which is why it’s called the arctic or golden root. According to Healthline,
“While it contains over 140 active ingredients, the roots are considered adaptogens, helping the body to adapt to stress thanks in part to rosavin and solidroside.”
When we look at the commonly known benefits of this herbal supplement, it becomes clear why we had to formulate it with cannabidiol.
- Decreases Stress
- Fights Fatigue
- Helps Reduce Symptoms of Depression
- Boosts Cognitive Functions
- Improves Workout Performance
That last point leads us to our second ingredient, again, another synergistic relationship with CBD along the lines of energy boosting and enhanced physical performance.
Made from the exotic bark of African evergreen trees, how long it’s been used in Western/Central Africa is hard to know. Same thing could be said about cannabis and every continent on earth.
The most popular use of Yohimbine there has been to improve sexual performance and combat erectile dysfunction. However, thanks to modern science and the global community, it’s being used as a dietary supplement with a variety of uses today – including a workout enhancer for improved body conditioning. All that being said, please, do your research and consult your physician before taking this herbal supplement! There are risks for certain populations.
We love the way NeuroHacker Collective puts it,
“A key nootropic which can prove beneficial to properly balancing the chemistries within the body and mind is hordenine HCl…an alkaloid that you can find in many different types of plants, most commonly the bitter orange and barley grass. In fact, one of the most common ways people include it in their diet, albeit unwittingly, is by drinking beer derived from barley.”
The energy enhancement comes from its adrenergic properties, causing your body to produce more epinephrine and norepinephrine. Interestingly, when you experience ‘fight or flight’ these play a big role – increased blood flow to muscles and heart rate, increased concentration, heightened senses, etc. It’s commonly formulated with our next ingredient…
Better known as Black Pepper Extract, as black pepper seeds contain roughly 5-10% Piperine, which has been commonly used as an energy booster for a very long time. In fact, it was first isolated from black pepper in 1819. You’ll find it as an ingredient in supplements of all kinds because it can increase the bioavailability of other nutrients, like for example hordenine or curcumin. Once again, please consult your physician because like CBD it can slow the metabolization of many common ‘conventional’ drugs.
CBD – Cannabidiol
5mg of our clean CBD. The most common phytocannabinoid found within modern industrial hemp cultivars (also in many marijuana strains these days as well). This single plant compound is at the center of our 21st century American cannabis revolution, where demand will far surpass the demand for marijuana thanks to the way it supplements our own human endocannabinoid system. Currently being used across North America and Europe to help with a huge variety of physiological conditions. Derived from industrial hemp grown in Europe, and legally imported in the U.S. under the 2014 Farm Bill.
