The Science of Life
Ayurveda, the Sister Science of Yoga
Ayurveda is the oldest medical science on our Planet–it has been practiced for over 5,000 years and is still used by over 1 billion people today. It originates from the same ancient body of knowledge as yoga, known as the Vedas. What yoga is to mental health and exercise, Ayurveda is to health and nutrition.
An encyclopedic source of knowledge on personalized medicine, Ayurveda references over 11,000 diseases that can be treated with 700 medicinal plants and 64 medicinal minerals.
Ayurveda argues that all matter—including plants, animals and humans—is made up of five key elements: space, air, fire, water and earth.
By understanding the chemical/metabolic properties of both humans and the plants they consume, Ayurveda can predict how a person of a given body type will likely react to a given plant medicine.
We use this ancient practice to craft your products with medicinal plants that have been documented to work for people with your body type for the last 5000 years.
Ayurveda & Cannabis: An Ancient Love-Affair
Cannabis (both hemp and marijuana) has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. One ancient Ayurvedic text, the Atharva Veda written in ~2000 BC, described cannabis as one of the five most important herbs on the planet. What’s more, ancient and medieval Ayurvedic documents reference hundreds of medicinal uses of the plant for everything from stress relief and sleep support to pain and skincare.
In India, cannabis has been widely used traditionally as part of a wellness ritual combined with yoga, meditation and breathing exercises. The ancients stated that the value of the hemp plant was in allowing the individual to slow down and connect more deeply with his or her own intuition.
Our Personalization Philosophy
Our team of Ayurvedic practitioners has designed a proprietary personalization methodology to create the optimal solution for stress relief and brain support for your stress type. In our Stress Consultation, we ask you questions to understand your unique experience with stress. These questions address:
- Your emotional responses to stress
- Your physical responses to stress
- Your behavioral responses to stress
- Your body type (gender, height, weight)
Based on this information, we recommend:
- Your personalized Focus & Balance CBD capsules, made with a formula that has been optimized for your stress type
- Personalized dosage of your CBD capsules, based on your gender, height, weight and stress intensity
- Personalized diet recommendations to help your body metabolize stress hormones more effectively
- Personalized movement recommendations that have traditionally been used to relieve stress for your stress type
- Personalized lifestyle recommendations that you can incorporate into your daily life
How We Personalize Each CBD Formula
Our CBD capsules are made with unique formulas for each of the three Ayurvedic body types: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Although the overall ingredients are the same in each formula, the proportion of how much of each ingredient is used completely unique in each case. As an example, ashwagandha is beneficial to all body types. However, it is most effective for relieving stress for Vata body types. As a result, the Vata formula has more ashwagandha than the Pitta and Kapha formulas do. By weighting each ingredient by its effectiveness, we have created an optimized formula for each body type.
