ROCKVILLE, Md., March 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Nationally recognized nutritional science company, Theralogix, is proud to announce the launch of TheraHemp™, the first enhanced-absorption CBD supplement to be independently tested and certified for content accuracy and purity by NSF® International. To enhance absorption, TheraHemp is formulated with VESIsorb®, resulting in 300% overall greater absorption of CBD.
NSF International’s stringent program is the first nonprofit, third-party CBD/Hemp certification program that is completely independent of the cannabis industry.
According to a 2019 Consumer Reports survey, more than 1 in 4 American adults has used CBD. A significant percentage of the survey respondents found CBD to be ‘extremely or very effective for a variety of conditions.1
Commercial production of hemp and CBD products has remained unregulated despite consumer interest, therefore leaving consumers uncertain about the content and purity of many products. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) data has revealed many products do not provide the CBD content they claim, often have impermissible levels of THC, or are adulterated with synthetic cannabinoids.2
TheraHemp answers this previously unmet need. NSF International certification assures consumers TheraHemp’s THC content is non-detectable at 100 ppm (0.01%) and contains the exact amount of CBD shown on the label. This is particularly important for individuals subject to drug testing including competitive athletes, first responders, and many individuals holding commercial driver’s licenses.
In addition, NSF certification ensures each CBD softgel contains the dose listed on the label, is certified gluten-free and does not contain contaminants. NSF certification is the best guarantee to ensure you are getting pure and accurate cannabinoid and terpene content.
TheraHemp is formulated with VESIsorb, a patented emulsification agent that enhances absorption and bioavailability. By mimicking the body’s natural process of fat digestion, VESIsorb results in nearly 300% greater overall absorption of CBD. CBD with VESIsorb also results in three times faster absorption than its competitors, with peak CBD blood levels reached in one hour.3
Each TheraHemp softgel provides broad-spectrum hemp oil and is standardized to provide 20 mg of CBD along with 8 mg of beta-caryophyllene-enriched terpenes. TheraHemp is also dye-free and gluten-free.
TheraHemp is available at $98 MSRP for a 60-count bottle. For more information on TheraHemp visit theralogix.com/therahemp.
