With more than 50 years of experience in the dietary supplement and nutraceuticals industry, Twinlab said it aims to be a source of transparency, accuracy, and education for consumers and the industry. The research and development team at Twinlab has been analyzing the research on CBD and other phytocannabinoids for more than a decade and recognizes the immense untapped potential in its use with a variety of health issues of significant interest to millions of Americans.
“We want to equip consumers with science-based facts on phytocannabinoids and hemp so they know how to use CBD effectively,” said Anthony Zolezzi, CEO of Twinlab. “We believe natural products will revolutionize health care and CBD products will be responsible for the biggest expansion the natural products industry has experienced in recent years, and want to ensure that consumers are informed to make smart decisions when it comes to dosing, frequency, cost, and usage.”
Gene Bruno, MS, MHS, professor of Nutraceutical Sciences at Huntington University, and director of formulation at Twinlab will host “The Science of CBD” video podcast. In each episode, he will cover topics critical to the understanding and proper use of hemp, CBD and phytocannabinoids, while dispelling myths related to CBD and its uses. Topics covered will include: the legality of hemp, research-based dosages, mechanisms, and indications, while comparing specific types of phytocannabinoids and products. Bruno will simplify and breakdown scientific literature related to CBD research to explain the latest developments for using phytocannabinoids, which include CBD for health maintenance and lifestyle-enhancing applications. Guest experts will join the show and lend additional insight on CBD use, from selecting the right formula to understanding other beneficial hemp compounds that enhance the effect of phytocannabinoids for sleep, pain, and stress-related anxiety.
“Twinlab is a leader in phytocannabinoid supplementation because they have been refining the cultivation and extraction process for years,” said Mr. Bruno. “We want to share this information with consumers so they know how to effectively combine the balancing properties of phytocannabinoids with a complementary blend of natural calming and anti-inflammatory compounds to help improve sleep, performance and general health and wellbeing.”
Current research shows CBD can influence the brain’s anti-anxiety chemicals including GABA and serotonin to reduce occasional stress, improve REM and deep sleep, modulate pain receptor response and decrease inflammation caused by overexertion to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. “The Science of CBD” video podcast is available in Spanish and English.
