"Research findings in the cannabinoid field continue to astonish and elate. In August 2017, Lexaria Bioscience announced (http://nnw.fm/h7aG8) the world's first clinical study on human volunteers of cannabidiol (CBD) within Lexaria's high absorption TurboCBD™ product. The study will evaluate the effects of CBD on cardiovascular health and cognitive function. Lexaria's TurboCBD, a brand of technologically enhanced, high absorption hemp oil capsules, came to market in March 2017. Its CBD content is fortified with high-quality American ginseng and ginkgo biloba for support of enhanced focus and memory, and reduced stress and fatigue.

"TurboCBD capsules contain a combination of CBD and minute quantities of long chain fatty acids like sunflower oil, utilizing a proprietary technology to create an amalgam that increases the ability of the human gastrointestinal system to absorb CBD. In vitro and human focus study testing has shown increases in CBD absorption using Lexaria's technology by as much as 5-10 times more than conventional preparations. Those studies also demonstrated rapid onset of action in as little as 15 minutes."
