Research &
Development

Our current R&D focuses on (1) the study of cannabinoid and performance supplement ingredients and (2) re-engineering existing performance supplements to make them easier to consume and more effective. We specialize in the three areas we believe will have the greatest impact for short term advancements within the cannabinoid and performance supplement industries.

Edible and Nutritive Materials

Engineering materials from existing performance supplement powders and nutritional powders. The goal is to improve ease of consumption, dosing consistency, solubility, and transportability, all whilst reducing the bulky packaging and the mess associated with using these powders.

Ingredient Testing

Behavioral and neural effects of performance supplement ingredients and finished products. We have an interest in the application of exocannabinoids and biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) as novel performance enhancers and flavoring agents. The goal is to provide efficacy data on existing ingredients and discover novel ingredients.
