Evolab Unveils CBx Sciences Topical Product Line — Unique Cannabis Formulations Featuring Rare Cannabinoids & Complementary Botanicals
CBx Sciences Introduces CBG to the Colorado Market
Evolab, the leader in supercritical CO2 extraction and cannabis product development, today announced its CBx Sciences Essentials line of cannabis topicals. Combining pure cannabinoids and terpenes with complementary botanical ingredients, the formulations are designed to activate and engage the Endocannabinoid System.
“Cannabinoids and endocannabinoids are among the most essential compounds for helping our bodies maintain balance and vitality,” explained Noel Palmer, Ph.D., chief scientist at Evolab and lead developer of the CBx Sciences formulations. “However, most people are only familiar with THC. We crafted these products with a focus on unlocking the potential of other cannabinoids like CBG, CBD and CBN, as well as terpenes such as beta caryophyllene, myrcene and eucalyptol.”
With abundant endocannabinoid receptors, healthy skin protects the body from damage and plays a key role in many bodily functions. Offering a new approach to skincare, the Essentials line features cannabinoids paired with therapeutic grade essential oils, botanical extracts and terpenes. Blending in these non-cannabis plant compounds adds proven benefits that amplify the effects of the cannabinoids and terpenes they are paired with.
Intensive Salve takes everything customers love about Evolab’s original, High Times Cannabis Cup Winning Angel Salve, and elevates it with Cannabigerol (CBG), a rare non-psychotropic cannabinoid. Combined with white willow bark, calendula, arnica and peppermint, CBG enhances the efficacy of Intensive Salve for topical skin care, creating a potent formulation that penetrates deep into muscles and joints.
“CBG is an essential cannabinoid that is the precursor to the three major cannabinoids -- THCA, CBDA and CBCA,” explained Palmer. “By the time we harvest a typical plant, there is less than one percent CBG - not enough to extract or produce at scale. However, licensed growers have been selectively breeding to increase CBG, and the once impossibly rare cannabinoid is slowly becoming more available.”
Intensive Skin Repair is a rich formulation featuring a 1/1 ratio of THC and CBD, terpenes including eucalytpol and terpinolene, sesame oil, camelina oil, rose canina, collagen and vitamin E. With 200mg of cannabinoids, the velvety salve is applied to wrinkles, scars, acne, blemishes, wounds and even fresh tattoos.
Daily Body Oil is a wholesome, ultra simple body oil containing 200mg of full spectrum CBD extract and calming terpenes in a base of nourishing plant oils. Designed for daily use with all skin types, the oil is an additive free formulation for whole body health, rejuvenation, hydration and optimal skincare.
All CBx formulations utilize Evolab’s advanced, pharmaceutical grade extraction technology and are paraben-free, gluten-free, soy-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, vegan, and contain no artificial dyes or coloring. Essentials Topical products will be available in medical and recreational dispensaries across Colorado beginning in Nov. 2017. Additional CBx Sciences products will be introduced shortly.
