What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found within the hemp plant, which bears a striking resemblance to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Only, unlike THC, this naturally-occurring plant compound is non-intoxicating. For this reason, it has exploded in popularity in the market. To date, approximately 6M adults have used CBD in the UK to enhance wellness routines for various indications.
In partial thanks to Israeli chemist and professor Raphael Mechoulam, we now know that CBD interacts with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to trigger various physiological responses once it activates the cannabinoid receptors. As the legal restrictions lift on the plant, research has amped up for this “wonder” plant compound. Many promising studies have surfaced that are exploring CBD’s effect on inflammation, stress, muscle & bone functioning, neurological disturbances, skin health, and more.
What are Functional Mushrooms?
Functional mushrooms, also known as medicinal mushrooms or traditional mushrooms, have been used in traditional medicine for well over 2000 years in East Asia. They contain highly nutritive compounds such as beta-glucan polysaccharides, triterpenes, and terpenoids, and other compounds essential to sustaining life.
Much like the endocannabinoid system, functional mushrooms are thought to support biological functions including the immune system, nervous system, endocrine system, digestive system, cardiovascular system, and more. For these reasons, Western scientists and medical professionals have now taken interest in them. Moreover, they are becoming increasingly popular in high-end food supplements and specialty grocery stores.
Our Proprietary M²CBD Formula
Mushrooms serve as a vast neural network or “natural internet” for the earth, as the renowned mushroom researcher, Paul Stamets, calls it to protect and maintain a healthy ecosystem. Likewise, they offer our body support with their high nutritional content.
Similarly, cannabinoids offer valuable properties that encourage homeostasis in the body by working directly with the endocannabinoid system.
With this in mind, we created a unique M²CBD formula as the next generation of preventative care products. Together, we believe that functional mushrooms and cannabinoids can offer a synergistic balance for a comprehensive wellness routine. These products are designed to address today’s health burdens as a result of modern, fast-paced life including sleep, stress, immunity, muscle and joint fatigue, skin health, and more.
