Lion’s Mane Extract + CBD for a Complete Nootropic*
Level Up Your Nootropics By Combining Lion’s Mane Extract With the Unique Activations of CBD*
Nootropics are a hot topic among go-getters. Anyone well versed in the market knows that Hericium erinaceus, aka lion’s mane, is quite popular due to its incomparable observations to indicate it may support normal myelin sheath density surrounding our neurons.* Lion’s mane extract has made its way into the hands of many nootropic advocates, and here’s why CBD can be added.*
Normally nootropics are understood to support synaptic firing.* These common nootropics support various neurotransmitters, largely by way of supporting blood flow in the brain.* The majority of nootropics on the market have this effect. Lion’s mane extract has a slightly different mechanism that supports the structural elements of brain function.*
The active constituents (erinacines and hericenones) from lion’s mane may support growth of branching axons, and may support normal cognitive function, as well supporting recall.*
Additionally, lion’s mane may promote myelination*, the insulator that encapsulates our neurons. This mushroom may support the establishment of neuronal infrastructure.*
Mechanisms of CBD
Cannabidiol (CDB) also has a unique mode of action on our brains as a nootropic.* CBD has been shown to act in reverse from other nootropics, or the opposite direction of synaptic firing.
What’s the outcome of this? In short, CBD may support neurons by promote levels of anandamide which may help support occasional anxiety, stress and depression responses.*
