Research directly informs each functional element in Kinetik Nanobites. This is precision science. A foundation based on research and extensive product testing with consumer feedback every step of the way allows us to create cannabis edibles that embody our mission to support your daily moments, not take you away from them. Finding the right functional dose is no longer a challenge, because we took the time to get it right.
We knew we wanted our edibles to embrace a few core elements: They needed to be vegan, gluten free and without artificial flavors or colors. We pride ourselves on building inclusive products and did not want anyone to miss out because of a specific dietary requirement or food sensitivity. Our team wanted to create fast-acting, full-spectrum edibles that would provide a rapid onset without fear or uncertainty. And we wanted to tap into the unique properties of adaptogens.
Natural adaptogens derived from plants and mushrooms help your body respond to stress, anxiety and fatigue, and contribute to overall well-being. They are key to bringing the body back to a steady balance (homeostasis) by managing both physical and mental stressors.
We also wanted Kinetik Nanobites to include natural nootropics. These compounds support mental functions including memory, motivation, concentration and attention. Our nootropics of choice are American ginseng root and L-theanine, an amino acid that can help foster a state of calm, attentive wakefulness.
What else? Vitamins! B2, B6, B7, B12 and vitamin C were selected for their positive properties and carefully added to the mix. The B Complex is associated with supporting a number of body functions, from cell health to energy metabolism, while vitamin C strengthens natural immune defenses and promotes absorption of iron and other nutrients.
Real People, Real Feedback
Our formulation team got to work developing an effective, stable and, of course, tasty formulation with an optimal blend of the selected ingredients. But things don’t always work out as expected. When we added our nutraceutical-grade vitamins and adaptogens, the edibles did not gel properly. We partnered with TraceTrust, an advanced food science company to help us solve the problem, along with a cannabinoid chemist to develop a new food technology.
Once we created the edibles with the chosen ingredients to complement the full-spectrum cannabinoids, we linked with cannabis neuroscientist Dr. Adie Rae from Smart Cannabis and Chroma Signet, to guide our potency research initiatives.
The result was an industry first: An in-home research project with a wide array of volunteers to determine the most enjoyable dose of full-spectrum cannabinoids in our Calm + Focus Nanobite for different types of consumers. Participants in the multidose, double-blind, in-home survey consumed four different doses of Calm + Focus and in an observational, subjective survey noted the effects, intensity and enjoyment of the four different doses. The Smart Cannabis and Chroma Signet team then established dosage guidelines, making it simple to integrate cannabis into your daily life—exactly the way you want for maximum enjoyment and functionality.
We didn’t stop there. We want you to feel good about what we do to get our Nanobites to you: Kinetik uses only recyclable and sustainable ingredients and components in our products and packaging.
