TIME Health Adaptogens are a buzzword in the wellness world, popping up everywhere from juice bars to lifestyle blogs. But what are adaptogenic herbs, exactly? Here’s what you need to know.What are adaptogens? Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that are marketed as helping the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological. These herbs and roots have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic healing traditions, but they’re having a renaissance today. Some, like holy basil, can be eaten as part of a meal, and some are consumed as supplements or brewed into teas.
TONIC was born out of necessity. I was looking for a natural way to manage my anxiety and depression. Something that could help me like cannabis had, but would be workday-friendly.
I began combining CBD with ashwagandha root because I realized they have similar effects, but take different pathways to get there. The idea was that together they could cover more ground, doubling down on each other’s effects to create a stress-relieving, mood-boosting, adaptogenic powerhouse… and that’s exactly what happened.
“The results were lifechanging and that’s when I knew I had to share this with the world. That’s how the O.G. got its name – it was the original blend that started it all”
After experiencing first hand the difference that these formulas can make mentally and physically, I made it my mission to bring the most healing to the most people and knew that in order to do that, quality, consistency and intention had to be present in every stage of the process.
That is why we started our own hemp farm, Tricolla Farms, in upstate NY. Growing our own hemp flower allows us to dictate the cultivation practices, genetics, and overall quality of the plants that ultimately become your TONIC products.
Thank you for caring about where your hemp is sourced and who you are supporting when you purchase your products; thank you for sharing your stories and spreading the word.
Your love, support, and most importantly, your trust is appreciated beyond words and I promise never to take it for granted.
