Both CBD and other functionals are beneficial ingredients that can be used to address various facets of your health including sleep, stress, balance, discomfort, focus, and more. But each also has its own properties and benefits that set it apart.
CBD is a plant-based ingredient derived specifically from hemp. EQ’s CBD is what’s known as full-spectrum, which means that you get a wide variety of cannabinoids and terpenes, which are compounds found in the hemp plant that contribute different benefits and effects.
“Other” Functionals can be derived from plants, fungi, vitamins, minerals, fibers, herbs, bacteria, enzymes, amino acids and more. Functional ingredients can be categorized in a variety of ways including as “adaptogens” or “nootropics.” Adaptogens are therapeutic compounds derived from botanical sources, offering benefits such as improved immune function, stress relief, and mood-boosting effects. Nootropics can be naturally derived or synthetic and have been found to increase mental functions such as cognition, memory, creativity, motivation, and attention.
