‘Shrooms In The Morning

Mushrooms are having a moment and quite frankly it could turn into a fungi take over. We aren’t talking about the traditional portobellos, shiitakes, and button mushrooms, either. We’re talking the functional, give you a good ‘kick-in-the-butt’ kind of ‘shrooms. 

So here’s the question:

DO YOU NEED… An energy boost? Better focus? Mental clarity? Help with that ‘afternoon slump’?

Good thing we’ve got your back

Meet RISE, the must-have morning cannabinoid and mushroom blend that everyone is talking about. 

It’s formulated to give you a morning boost, serve as a midday pick-me-up, or even give you a pre-workout energy kick for all your active endeavors. RISE has a natural physical and cognitive enhancement effect without the caffeine aftermath crash! What more could you want?! 

But “isn’t it supposed to make you sleepy?”

While CBD is often associated with relaxation and perhaps even sleepiness, we’ve paired a low dosage of cannabinoids with a blend of brain boosting herbs. Commonly known as Nootropics, these supplements provide your body and mind with just enough support to reduce your morning worries, and give your brain cells the power it needs to tackle that overflowing inbox, reach a new PR on your last set, or ace the physics midterm. 

Nootropics 101

Known as a “smart drug,” these natural nootropic supplements can be found in every neuro hacker’s toolbox to enhance motivation, creativity, memory, and other executive functions that correspond to elevated cognitive performance. Many seek out brain-boosting nootropic ingredients for help with various aspects of mood including stress and worry, lingering sadness, and other cognitive disturbance. 

Nootropic ingredients are known to improve mood by regulating blood flow and circulation to the brain, leveling unbalanced brain chemicals, and correcting low brain function and poor stress resistance. Nootropic products can do many positive things for brain cells – enhancing brain activity, neurotransmitters, cerebral circulation, neuroprotection, brain waves, regeneration, and so much more! 

They are appealing energy boosters because they work without the use of stimulates, eliminating any unpleasant stimulated crash or side effects. Brain energy is linked to overall brain health, associated with increased cognitive performance, the capacity to think quickly, and to have mental clarity and maintain sharp alertness. 

A serving of the RISE will provide your body with a boost of energy thanks to the Rhodiola and vitamin B12. When using nootropics for energy, your mind will get a stimulation without the crash as the supply of oxygen and glucose are increased allowing for more blood flow to access the brain. Through this process, the brain’s capacity to endure stressful, fast-paced, and multitasking activities will increase and mental fatigue will decrease. 

Packed in a three capsule serving is a helping hand to uplift morning or Monday blues thanks to the mood-enhancing Cordyceps and Lion’s mane. Both nootropic mushrooms have been backed by multiple researchers who have found healing for seasonal blues, social anxiety, and other mood disorders.

Boost in mental energy, check. Enhanced mood, check. What else could you ask for in a brain supplement? Perhaps an increase in memory retention. 

This morning blend of ‘shrooms has you covered. Nootropic products have a long history of use for improving memory. Lion’s Mane in particular have been used by Buddhist monks in meditation practices to enhance concentration, entrepreneurs who rely on it for late nighters, and academic scholars for test memory. 

What’s in it?

Lions Mane: Brain Food

This mushroom is a fan favorite by anyone who gives RISE a try. This mushroom, which has a very similar structure make up as cauliflower, can be ground up and placed alongside other herbal extracts, or taken individually to steal the show in a savory grounding dish this autumn

In a 2018 study, researchers from Behavioral Neurology found lion’s mane to be effective in improving mild cognitive impairments. Many have taken this fungi to increase daily focus, and support long term nerve and brain health. This ‘shroom could be your boost of clear headed confidence you’ve been looking for without the jitters, crash, or lingering brain fog. 

Cordyceps: Pre-Workout Boost

Discovered by ancients and beloved by athletes, Cordyceps are known to provide clean energy without extra stimulation. This mushroom helps increase oxygen intake up to 20% which naturally boosts mental and physical performance. Cordyceps help us breathe more, making it perfect for a pre-workout boost or general energy jolt throughout the day without draining the adrenals or b-lining to a late afternoon crash.

Vitamin B12: Plant-Based Babe’s Best Friend 

Broad Spectrum The OG of hemp, without the THC 

The newest spectrum on the block, broad-spectrum products are a little bit of both worlds. Broad-spectrum CBD is full-spectrum CBD without any THC. To create broad-spectrum CBD, companies will put their products through additional processing to isolate and remove as much trace amounts of THC possible while preserving the other natural cannabinoids and terpenes including CBD, CBG, and CBC, allowing you to still reap the health benefits of these cannabinoids.

Whether you are new to the CBD market, or a long time user, one question may still be lingering in the back of your brain: what’s the difference between broad spectrum, CBD isolate, and full spectrum? 

When it comes to herbal medicine, sometimes the strength of a plant is in its many little variations. And in the case of cannabis and other complex botanical, the collective activity of all these varied molecules contributes to the plant’s unique effects on people’s unique bodies. 

They may be as old as dirt, but medicinal mushrooms are making a comeback as the next big superfood for improved cognitive function.

The power of their benefit is real – the global mushroom market value is expected to exceed 50 billion USD in the next seven years due to growing demand, according to Grand View Research

Witnessing this first hand, as I watched my wellness family, the CURED Collective, bring this into fruition, I am not surprised at the rapid growth of these powerful healing plants as they are used more and more by individuals looking for a natural nootropic supplement that will supply both a boost in mental energy and physical performance!
