Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid from a long list of hundreds of useful cannabinoids found in hemp. CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids in hemp, being rivaled only by its twin brother THC. Unlike delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, or more widely known as THC, CBD is non-psychotic and does not have mind-altering properties, therefore it can be safely used for social environments for therapeutic or medicinal purposes. Even more, CBD tends to counteract THC psychotic effect.
Liposomal Encapsulation (LTE) is a delivery mechanism that drives the CBD to your receptors, and mimics the cellular structure, for higher and faster absorption rates. In more technical terms... Substances are shielded by LET from the devastating and threatening results, which are likely to take place within the gastrointestinal passage. Liposomal Encapsulation HAS a phospholipid liposome that constructs a defense that repels the negative activities of the digestive juices, alkaline solutions, salts and free radicals of the body. So the protection of this process lasts from the moment the nutrients are on their way towards the gastrointestinal tract until the contents have reached the target tissue and are immediately taken in by the cellular structure and transferred into the intra-cellular space.
Our proprietary terpine blend was created after nearly a decade of research after analyzing which terpines have the best synergy with CBD. This is why Elevare uses Linalool, A-pinene, Beta-caryophyllene and Myrcene. This synergy mocks the D9 molecule allowing the CBD to do a better job.
Sacha Inchi oil ( SASHA- INCH IE) is one of the few exotic oils that have been discovered in the Amazon rainforest. It is unique because it contains a good mix of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 healthy fats. Sacha inchi is rich in protein, omega-3, -6, and -9, alpha tocopherol, vitamin E, and carotenoids (Vitamin A), and fiber. Its unique collection of nutrients provide notable benefits for the body. Controls cholesterol. Sacha inchi lowers BAD cholesterol (LDL) and raises GOOD cholesterol (HDL). Improves Heart Health. Rich in Omega fatty acids, particularly Alpha-linolenic Acid (ALA), Sacha Inchi is one of the best sources of plant based Omega 3 Oils in the world.
It's called the Paradoxical Effect. About 20% of the population has a paradoxical effect with products. In these cases, the product taken has the opposite effect of what is the expected result. While tinctures are recommended to be taken at night since they may cause drowsiness, if you find yourself sleepless and wide awake, you should take the tincture in the morning.
Elevare's Cannabidiol is suspended in PURE PROTEIN with a combination of Sacha Inchi Oil and Hemp Seed Oil. CBD's are lipids, (they cannot be suspended in a water-soluble without changing the molecular structure), so it only stands to reason companies would use fat/glycerin as a carrier for the cannabidiol. What you want is suspension in pure protein. Suspending in glycerin or MCT oil, and other fatty oils can and will exacerbate patient symptoms! It is important to use a CBD suspending in pure protein like our Elevare tincture products. Since MCT oil is metabolized differently than LCT's, it can also cause significant gastrointestinal distress, such as diarrhea, vomiting, bloating and cramping. Fatty acid is saturated fat. The fat in coconut oil is 92% saturated fat. Stick to a pure protein for optimal results.
