How Koan Uses CBD to Improve Its Cannabis Cordials
Society is in a predicament. The general population now has access to CBD in one form or another and the scientific community is unraveling new potential benefits of this compound on what often feels like a daily basis.
You’re probably asking, “how is this a predicament? This sounds great”.
When it comes to finding balance in our health and well-being, CBD is a potentially large piece of the puzzle. The predicament is that the CBD puzzle piece is dynamic. There is no one-size-fits-all approach.
However, even this is quickly becoming a non-issue with the advent of the Resonate System and Koan Cordials.
No More Shotgun Approach
Quickly fading into the past are the days of inconsistent CBD dosages in hopes of assuaging a cornucopia of issues.
Think about it, how many times have you heard someone say something along the lines of, “I tried CBD and it worked great for a bit, but I stopped because it just became ineffective”? Sounds reasonable until you begin to explore the reasons why CBD may have become ineffective for them.
CBD products are known for their inconsistent and poorly targeted dosage amounts.
Numerous studies have confirmed this issue, including a study released by the FDA that found less than 50% of the CBD products on the market are labeled correctly.
Additionally, a Penn Medicine study also found that almost 70% of CBD extracts sold online are mislabeled.
So how are Koan Cordials and the Resonate System different?
First and foremost, their formulations are precision blended, which means you get a consistent dosage amount from batch to batch.
The emulsified compounds that go into each product are precisely calibrated and crafted for the predictability.
This gives you the ability to not only control your experience but repeat it as well. Even more impressive is the fact that this is all done with 100% plant-derived, all-natural, compliant-plus ingredients.
CBD’s Role in Koan Cordials
Koan Cordials are more than the world’s first cannabis cordial, they’re six formulations that each provide a unique experience, Calm, Balance, Play, Create, Delight, and Wonder, with more on the way.
Koan Cordials mesh CBD and THC with other compounds found in the cannabis plant like terpenes and flavonoids to deliver a conveniently packaged, single-dose experience.
Calm is Koan’s solution for those who are seeking a high CBD to THC ratio (15:1), Koan’s Calm Cordial provides 15mg CBD and 1mg THC with each dose.
Calm’s high CBD content helps put you in a place of mental and physical ease. The addition of terpenes like Linalool, B-Caryophyllene, A-Bisabolol, and Limonene also compliment this cordial’s purpose of helping you cope with the stressors of everyday life.
Studies like this one published by Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience are examples of growing evidence that terpenes may help alleviate conditions like anxiety, insomnia, depression, inflammation, and more.
In addition to the terpene profile of Koan’s Calm Cordial, the amount of CBD found in Calm may also help take the edge off after a long day at the office or stressful event.
The amount of THC in the Calm Cordial falls below the intoxicating threshold making it ideal to use at any time of day or during any activity. Calm won’t leave you feeling stoned thus making it unable to get your work done or be a responsible parent.
Calm’s formulation is designed to be both subtle and nuanced. In fact, many people may not explicitly notice its effects at all, and sometimes that’s a good thing. It is best taken during particularly stressful times as that’s when the power of its effects is more substantive.
Remember, sometimes the absence of feelings often related to anxiety may go unnoticed until you check-in, mentally, precisely what Calm is intended to do.
Homeostasis is a term that is thrown around a good bit these days, but what exactly does it mean for you? Homeostasis can be defined as the ability to create a stable environment which allows an object, in this case your body, to operate optimally.
Examples of homeostasis or homeostatic functions in the body are sweating (our body’s way of maintaining a certain temperature), the pancreas releasing insulin (our body optimizing blood glucose levels), and the pituitary gland releasing certain hormones (hormonal balance).
Sometimes our internal homeostasis or balance systems can get out of whack. This can be the result of countless factors, including but not limited to, diet, sleep, genetics, stress, medications, or environment, and to regain that balance, we must adjust or supplement aspects of our day-to-day lives.
As more research is being conducted on CBD, scientists are finding that the endocannabinoid system and CBD may play a role in our body’s ability to regulate and find balance.
In a study published by the Journal of Biological Chemistry, researchers found that the endocannabinoid system may “play a key role in the hormonal/metabolic changes associated with obesity/metabolic syndrome”.
With this in mind, the team behind Koan’s Balance Cordial has perfectly crafted a subtle combination of cannabinoids and terpenes formulated to help bring your mind, body, and spirit back to an even state of harmony and homeostasis. In turn, the Balance blend delivers a greater capacity to respond with wisdom, compassion, and composure…true balance.
Each dose of Koan’s Balance Cordial contains 10mg CBD and 3mg THC (3.3 to 1 ratio) alongside a terpene profile containing A-Bisabolol, B-Caryophyllene, and Limonene, all with the purpose of helping you recenter your mind and body.
Inspiration, creativity, and imagination all come from within, so wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to supplement and enhance those feelings on demand? That’s exactly what Koan’s Create Cordial aims to do.
The Koan Create Cordial contains 6mg CBD and 6mg THC (1:1) as well as Eucalyptol, Limonene, Ocimene, A-Bisabolol, and B-Myrcene. The one-to-one THC/CBD blend is crafted to provide you with just enough THC to spark those creative juices, but an equal amount of CBD to maintain focus and mental clarity as you explore your artistic side.
Many cannabis consumers credit THC as the prominent cannabinoid when it comes to getting those creative juices flowing, but there can be some disadvantages to THC-only blends.
For example, blends that contain only THC in higher concentrations can have a detrimental effect on motivation. That’s why choosing a THC product that is balanced with CBD and terpenes is important to help prevent effects like couchlock.
CBD can create a synergistic environment when combined with THC at the proper ratio. CBD has shown improvements in memory, verbal learning, and attentional control based on studies like the one published by the Journal of Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research. If you’re the artistic type, you’re already well aware of how vital these abilities are when you’re creating.
Koan’s Create Cordial was designed with, you guessed it, creativity in mind. The Create Cordial was formulated to stimulate your senses and spark your imagination. The one-to-one CBD: THC ratio along with the blend of terpenes make this the perfect complement to your imagination.
Delight, Play, and Wonder
Koan Cordials each maintain a specific CBD: THC ratio based on their purpose. The aforementioned cordials contain a higher CBD: THC ratio while Delight, Play, and Wonder build a case for those who seek additional enchantment from THC. That said, CBD still plays a role in the effect of these cordials.
Delight, Play, and Wonder in the Koan Cordial line utilize 2:1, 3:1, and 4.5 to 1 THC to CBD ratios, respectively.
That’s because of CBD’s use as a tool that helps you better control the effects of THC by smoothing the transition in and out of the experience as well as keeping the sometimes overwhelming effects of THC under control.
CBD has been found to act as a negative allosteric modulator of CB1 receptors. What this translates to is the CBD compound’s ability to decrease the efficacy of CB1 receptors, which are the endocannabinoid receptors responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC use (among other things).
This doesn’t mean that CBD will make THC ineffective, only that it dampens the receptors that THC uses, thus creating a smoother, more predictable experience when used in combination with THC.
Many cannabis product consumers have begun using CBD in conjunction with THC-based products because of the ability CBD gives them to control their experience.
Koan’s Delight, Play, and Wonder Cordials make combining single-dose THC and CBD an effortless venture. Even Koan’s highest THC cordials, Wonder and Play, are blended with the perfect amount of CBD to provide stability throughout the entire journey.
Koan Cordials Embrace CBD’s Hidden Talents
In a world flooded with cannabis product options, finding a product that addresses your needs shouldn’t be as difficult as it currently is.
Consumers are often faced with asking the question, do I want CBD in my product? What will the effects of this product be with CBD or without CBD? Or, why does this product even have CBD in it?
The minds behind Koan Cordials recognize not only this struggle for many canna-consumers but also the power behind CBD when delivered in calculated, precision doses.
That’s one of the fundamentals that led to the creation of each unique Koan Cordial blend.
These single-serving, conveniently packaged cordials take the guesswork out of the equation, allowing you to focus instead on successfully completing your journey and the milestones within.
