Gaia Herbs, one of North America’s leading herbal brands, recently announced the launch of three new product lines. The public launch of Gaia’s new Hemp, Nootropics, and Mushroom & Herbs Functional Powders took place at this year’s the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA. Expo West attendees were some of the first people to experience Gaia’s new lines (1).
Below is an overview of Gaia’s new product lines along with additional details about each product.
Elena Lécué, Gaia Herbs’ Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing expressed her excitement about the company’s new hemp line of products. In the wake of the 2018 Agriculture Improvement Act (a.k.a. the 2018 Farm Bill), a plethora of hemp-derived products flooded the supplement market. Some of these products are neither high-quality nor effective. Lécué says:
As the leading herbal brand, Gaia Herbs is proud to be bringing a new Hemp line to the market of the quality that consumers have come to expect from our brand, that is fully traceable to the source (1).
Gaia Herbs Full Spectrum Hemp Extract comes from ‘sun-grown American Hemp flowers’ and contains less than 0.2% THC. This hemp extract comes in two strengths (10 mg and 20 mg) and two sizes (1 oz or 2 oz). Instead of using other parts of the hemp plant to produce this new hemp extract, Gaia uses hemp flowers. What’s more, this full spectrum hemp oil has a full range of cannabinoids which are naturally present in hemp.
What’s more, Gaia’s traceability program lets consumers track the origin of the hemp which went into producing the extract. Not only that, but consumers can also learn about the testing that the hemp underwent to check its purity, integrity, and strength potency.
Although the nootropics niche is fairly new, the sector has steadily grown over the past few years. Also known as ‘smart drugs’, nootropics are said to make you think more clearly and have a longer attention span. According to proponents of nootropics, they do this by stimulating neurons and increasing blood and oxygen flow to the brain. On top of that, protect the brain from damage. As a result, by taking them you may experience benefits like more creativity, better mood, and more brainpower (2).
Nootropics are designed to boost a person’s mental performance. Many people take them to keep their minds sharp and healthy. Others take them to reduce their chance or dementia and Alzheimer’s (3). Gaia Herbs new Nootropics line of products are made of herbs and come in several forms:
