Ascend is blended with adaptogenic mushroom extracts Reishi, Cordyceps, Shiitake, and selected terpenes: Limonene, alpha-Pinene, and beta-Caryophyllene. These plant compounds have been known to tackle anxiety and depression-related symptoms setting you up to own the day.
Cordyceps are believed to increase the body’s production of a molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is necessary for delivering energy to the muscles. This fungi has been used to treat fatigue in Traditional Chinese Medicine for Centuries.
Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners often use Reishi to calm the Shen (Spirit or Mind). It has been a tool commonly used to prepare the mind for meditation because of its harmonizing effects and its ability to calm the stress response in the adrenal glands.
Shiitake is another fungi with mood enhancing capabilities. Adaptogenic qualities in Shiitake can help the body adapt to stress by regulating the nervous system response resulting in enhanced mental and physical performance.
Limonene is a terpene commonly found in citrus fruits. Research suggests that Limonene's ability to increase the availability of the neurotransmitter Serotonin helps relieve anxiety- related symptoms.
alpha- Pinene is an aromatic compound found in pine trees and other coniferous plants that's believed to improve cognitive function. Think of the feeling of hiking near pine tress, that clear- headed sensation is provided by the terpene alpha-pinene.
beta-Caryophyllene is a terpene with the unique ability to bind with CB2 receptors found in immune tissues throughout the body. Activation of these receptors reduces inflammation and may help regulate nervous system responses allowing the body to better manage stress related symptoms.
Pac Crest Botanicals Mushroom Blends are enhanced with added botanical terpenes, adaptogenic mushrooms, and herbal extracts designed to stimulate specific endocannabinoid receptors within the body bringing your body into a state of homeostasis. Each blend is infused with high-quality, pure organic MCT oil to optimize absorption.
We create our blends using Full Spectrum pesticide and solvent-free, hemp-derived CBD oil. Meaning the entire cannabis plant is used to provide a wide range of organic plant compounds, like cannabinoids, flavonoids, and other phytonutrients. These compounds work synergistically with Cannabidiol, stimulating what is called the Entourage Effect. THC is present in trace amounts, always less than 0.3%.
Each blend is also available in a Broad Spectrum option, meaning every compound is present with the exception of THC.
Very good product. I am really enjoying it. Can't wait to try more.
The staff was able to help identify products that would work for me based on my needs. The products were packaged well, shipped quickly. The products were great.
Incorporating ascend into my health care routine has greatly helped me manage my chronic adrenal insufficiency (addison's disease). Sometimes it can be hard to find the energy for life whether it be physical of mental; this medicine supports my energy/mood and makes me feel great in life!!
Cordyceps are one of my favorite mushrooms so I really enjoy having Ascend on hand. I often struggle with anxiety which is often followed by shame and guilt. When I take Ascend I feel much calmer and content with myself. I feel like it ends the spiral of rumination and helps me get back on track.
I like to use this daily, for my overall health. I love the benefits of the combination of mushrooms used together. My ability to solve problems seems easier, and I feel it better enables me to deal with the longevity of my day. It's a nice addition to my natural health routine. I just feel better.
