How hemp multi+ can help you lighten your mood.

That’s exactly why we decided to include hemp in our new supplement+ line , created in partnership with Thorne, the leading manufacturer of science-backed supplements. Our hemp multi+ supplement has targeted, scientific evidence that helps tackle the acute stress we face every day. Here’s how it works: The hemp extract promotes a sense of calm from the blend of phytocannabinoids that are in hemp extract. One systematic review has shown how the humulon and lupulon components

(found in hops flowers) can encourage the body’s natural cannabinoid network.* That same review also found how the formula can reduce everyday stress and promote a positive mood, which targets that “acute anxiousness” Rountree says can be detrimental to our health.*

With this supplement, “multi” is exactly right—we used a multitude of healthy antioxidants and extracts to best help you tackle inflammation and daily stress.*
