Cannabidiol (CBD) is fast catching on as a health-promoting compound, but to get the most out of it, you need to optimise your intake. We explain how.
Too much caffeine can make anxiety even worse. So toss that third cup of joe, avoid the jitters, and rather pick up one of ThreeDots' revitalising CBD sparkling waters. Find that happy place where you can take a pause, find balance, and re-focus.
While there are a multitude of CBD products out there, drinks are one of the simplest and most effective methods to enjoy the many benefits of CBD and the other magical cannabinoids; perfect for those striving to achieve daily homeostasis (that perfect balance in your body which allows you to function at optimal levels).
How? Cannabidiol, the fancy name for CBD, is a major phytocannabinoid present in cannabis plants, and the non-psychoactive sister of the more infamous cannabinoid THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
Scientists recently discovered that us humans have our own endocannabinoid system (ECS), a pain and anti-inflammatory regulatory system, which our bodies top up with cannabinoids we produce ourselves (or endocannibinoids), but which can become depleted over time.
By proactively supplementing our bodies with plant-based phytocannabinoids - like CBD - we are able to replenish our system, fix ‘tears’ in our central nervous system and engage our cannabinoid receptors.
Importantly, different cannabinoids have been shown to interact with the two major endocannbinoid system (ECS) receptors, ECB1 and ECB2, in different ways. To get the full benefits of activating your receptors in your ECS, it is highly recommended that you consume a wider array of cannabinoids.
When taken together, you get something called the ‘entourage effect’, where the collective impact of the compounds is greater than each individually, providing a more efficient way of achieving homeostasis.
This is why the founders of ThreeDots were not willing to settle with using a CBD isolate, and each of their sparkling water creations contains 15mg of CBD from a broad spectrum liposomal hemp extract emulsion.
Broad spectrum hemp extract contains the full profile of all of the different cannabinoids in the hemp plant (except for THC), and the use of liposomal encapsulation means those cannabinoids are readily absorbed by the body at a rate far higher than your typical CBD oils.
While ‘liposomal encapsulation’ may be a mouthful, it is a carefully considered part of the ThreeDots formula. We all know oil and water don’t mix, and unfortunately, hemp extract on its own is an oil. In order to get hemp extract to mix with water - and stay mixed - you need to attach the particles to special particles that can attach to both water and oil compounds.
Nano-emulsions are a common solution, where the hemp extract is broken down into tiny pieces and attached to fat-based nano-particles before being mixed in, but these microscopic particles have been shown to be able to pass into your tissue and accumulate, potentially causing cell damage.
Using liposomal encapsulation - where a biodegradable liposome forms a protective bubble to encapsulate the hemp particles - is a much safer alternative. Better yet, water-soluble liposomal CBD is one of the most effective methods to consume CBD, with high rates of fast absorption.
As you can probably tell, we’ve spent a lot of time on the exact recipe for our CBD sparkling water, ensuring it has been carefully crafted. That’s why each drink contains 15MG of CBD, putting us head and shoulders above many other drinks which contain a much lower dosage of CBD (2-5 MG).
We're not just being generous, we've done our research. Most studies into CBD's beneficial effects recommend taking at least 15MG per day to make a real difference.
But our research doesn’t stop there. It goes way back to the techniques of ancient healers. Botanicals have been used in ancient medicines, across India, China and Egypt, for thousands of years. By taking a modern approach to ancient wellness remedies, we’ve found a way to optimise the impact of ThreeDots by adding carefully chosen stress-fighting botanicals (also known as adaptogens).
We’ve infused our drinks with essences extracted from calming lemon balm, invigorating ginseng and ashwagandha, an Indian Ayurvedic medicine said to help relieve stress, increase energy levels, and aid concentration.
The chaos of our everyday lives can often leave us in discord and the combination of our three botanicals in ThreeDots, helps us settle back into harmony.
So instead of masking your fatigue or stress with caffeine, wouldn’t you rather pick up a drink that goes deep into the source of your tension? Our revitalising three flavours are the perfect remedy to 24h societies - a sort of full body massage at the molecular level.
Take a sip of ThreeDots and allow the rest to follow … Get back to real.
