One of the most frequently asked questions we get at Troscriptions is why we use Polyethylene Glycol (PEG, for short) as the base/suspension media for our formulas.
There are a lot of very smart people who use our products (who are even smarter after they use our products!) so today, TroNation, let’s lay it all out on the table and allay your concern(s). After all, knowledge is (blue and orange) power.
The ECS is a biological system composed of endocannabinoids (cannabis-like cannabinoids manufactured by the body), neurotransmitters, cannabinoid receptors, and receptor proteins. The ECS serves a major role regulating and balancing many processes in the body including the immune response, communication between cells, appetite, metabolism, memory, hormonal response, your dance moves (just kidding), and much more.
You might have heard of or seen the name GABA in supplements that you have used before. You may have not even heard of the name GABA, but in recent years many supplements have been marketed with their highlighted main ingredient being GABA.
One of the most important sets of regulations for consumables is the (G)ood (M)anufacturing (P)ractice set of regulations. These regulations ensure that the companies that produce products such as food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, supplements, etc. produce products at a consistently high quality from batch to batch.
N-Nicotinoyl GABA is a novel combination of Niacin, a form of Vitamin B3, and GABA molecularly bound together in a single compound. This combination is BBB permeable, increasing both B3 and GABA levels in the brain.
The word enlightenment literally means to be “filled with light”. Sounds awesome, right? But wait a minute…what kind of light are we talking about? Because if it’s from a fluorescent bulb or blue light after sunset….(uh oh, biohackers!). At Troscriptions, we use a definition developed by our Chief Daydreamer, Master Bluer, and Founder, Dr. Ted Achacoso.
Across the world, anxiety levels have skyrocketed and prescriptions for xanax, valium, ativan, and other drugs in the benzodiazepine class--the class of drug most commonly prescribed for anxiety--have also correspondingly (and exponentially) grown as well.
A new era has arrived, folks. We have entered the era of minor cannabinoids. And one of the most promising, making up just 1% of the cannabis and hemp plants, is CBG or Cannabigerol. Much like CBD, CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that can have profound effects on inflammation and neuroprotection.
CBD is certainly no longer the new kid on the block. In the last five years, it has exploded on the market in products that range from shampoos, skin creams, tinctures, suppositories, and (well, we’re sure you guessed it) troches of course! Why is CBD use so widespread?
