THINKNOO’s CBD Coffee Product
More than 200 million Americans drink coffee every day. However, true coffee lovers also have to face the downsides: jitters when caffeine levels peak in the body, the infamous afternoon “crash,” and poor sleep at night.
Inspired by nootropics, entrepreneur Shannon O’Brien and scientist Steve Austin have developed THINKNOO, a line of supplements designed to bring out the best in coffee, while counteracting its unwanted side effects.
According to O’Brien, “THINKNOO exists to turn people’s love for coffee into a love for life by feeding the brain with superfood, plant-powered nutrients to counteract coffee’s often unspoken side-effects. By teaming up with world-renowned nutrition experts we have formulated an approach that combines not only healthy, keto-friendly fats to power coffee but also natural superfoods that help the body deal with the stresses of daily life and sustain your mental energy for any adventure.”
THINKNOO’s single-serve powder-based sachets for instant coffee comes in two different formulas: The Fat Mocha and The Zen Keto.
Recess x Opening Ceremony Can
CBD sparking water maker Recess and popular fashion brand and retailer Opening Ceremony have partnered to create a limited-edition can.
As part of Opening Ceremony’s in-store holiday installs, the exclusive Recess x OC designed Pomegranate Hibiscus cans are now available for purchase individually ($6) or as a 12-pack ($72) within customized fridges.
"As two design-driven brands dedicated to subverting the norm and championing creatives of all disciplines, it only felt natural for us to collaborate with Opening Ceremony on our limited edition can design this holiday season,” said Benjamin Witte, Founder and CEO of Recess.
Mighty Self’s Nutraceutical Product
Mighty Self launched BALANCE, a nutraceutical product that is designed to support the human body’s natural inflammatory response as well as help calm nervous tension. BALANCE is formulated with full-spectrum whole plant hemp-based CBD extract in combination with complimentary bioactive and apoptogenic herbs -- Phenethylamine (PEA), Hordenine, DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA), Ashwagandha, Theobromine and Curcumin.
Research for the product was based on studies that have found that the endocannabinoid system is made up of a network of receptor sites on cell membranes throughout the body. These cannabinoids behave as chemical activators that fit into those sites (CB1 & CB2). CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 receptors in immune system cells and, to a lesser extent, in the brain.
"With the growing evidence of the health benefits of using cannabinoids, including CBD, Mighty Self is extremely excited to create science-backed products that harness the power of cannabinoids to give consumers an option when managing their self care," said Matthew Runeare, Co-Founder of Mighty Self.*
