Each of these ingredients plays crucial roles that help to promote optimal body functioning. This blissful blend of potent feel-good plants will help you to relax and unwind after a long day. This way, you can fall into a deep, dreamless sleep and wake up in fantastic moods ready to face the day.
Relieve stress naturally
This product is packed with naturally extracted powerful ingredients that will promote your body to simply relax. A key component used is Mucuna Pruriens; a known facilitator of relieving stress naturally. A mixture of CBD Oil, organically grown hemp with plant extracts will help to unwind, relax and sleep well.
The CBD used in the product is pressed under low temperatures, allowing it to retain the full spectrum of its active ingredients. This makes it quite potent and wholesome. Also, the CBD is 100% digestible so that you can enjoy Adaptogen CBD Oil (500mg) worry-free. This product contains Mucuna Pruriens, which is commonly known as the velvet bean. It helps to relieve tension and also promotes your emotional wellbeing. The oil also contains Ashwagandha, which is a potent adaptogen that helps your body cope with stress.
The fourth ingredient in the Adaptogen CBD oil is Turmeric paired with BioPerine. It is well documented that Turmeric on its own has very low bioavailability. Additives like BioPerine help to make Curcumin (an active component in Turmeric) more bioavailable. This further enhances the potential of this unique formula and makes it way more effective.
The package comes in the form of a tastefully designed, small white box with a 30ml Miron glass bottle inside. To learn more about the product, you can also read the brief but highly informative sticker that is found on the bottle. The bottle comes with a well-calibrated dropper, which also doubles up as the lid.
What are adaptogens?
In today’s world of health and wellness, adaptogens have gained immense popularity. They are being offered in various forms, from supplements and tonics to coffee and chocolate bars. Although they are gaining popularity, not everyone understands what adaptogens are. Simply put, adaptogens are a unique class of plants that promote hormonal balance and help to protect the body against excessive amounts of stress. Examples of adaptogens include Ashwagandha, Siberian ginseng, liquorice root, and holy basil (tulsi), among others.
When one is suffering from emotional or physical stress, levels of cortisol in the body are increased. This is what earned cortisol its name as the stress hormone. This hormone negatively affects a lot of physiological functions in the body, and it also causes you to become anxious and irritable. A number of studies conducted on cortisol, have shown to increase the likelihood of high blood sugar levels, heart conditions, and in some instances, weight gain. Adaptogens not only help keep the levels of cortisol in check, but they also help to reduce the risk of stress-induced disorders and impairments in the body.
In addition to helping the body combat stress, adaptogens also play the following roles in the body:
- Improve attention
- Increase endurance by helping to fight fatigue
- Helps to boost the immune system
- Improve the general functioning of body organs and systems
Role of CBD in the body
For thousands of years, people have been using CBD for its medicinal qualities. However, it was not until recently that scientists were able to fully explain its mechanism of action. In the 1990s, researchers discovered a specialized system in the human body, the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It consists of cannabinoid receptors distributed all over the body and endocannabinoid neurotransmitters secreted by various body cells.
Scientists believe that the ECS works to regulate crucial body functions such as sleep, appetite, memory, and mood, among others. CBD alters the structure of CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system and prevents them from binding certain cannabinoids. Because of this mechanism, CBD can even prevent THC from exerting its full effects. After years of research, the following have been widely documented as potential health benefits of CBD:
- Pain relief
Research shows that CBD helps to reduce pain by altering cannabinoid receptor activity. By these mechanisms, it is capable of reducing inflammation, and interacting with pain neurotransmitters. An added benefit of CBD is that it achieves all this without causing the popular high that is associated with cannabis and marijuana plants.
During their normal physiological functions, body cells release toxic molecules that are called free radicals. These free radicals cause damage and ageing of cells, slowing down the functioning of your body systems. Researchers believe that CBD is a potent antioxidant that helps to neutralize these molecules while repairing the damage already incurred. That helps to keep your organs, skin included, young, healthy, and functioning optimally.
- Improved moods
The neurotransmitter Serotonin in the brain is thought to regulate mood and behaviour. When the levels of this neurotransmitter are low, one may experience an episode of depressed mood. This will negatively impact on their social interactions and overall productivity. Scientists believe that CBD acts on the serotonin receptors in the brain, enhancing how they respond to the serotonin already present in the body. This is how CBD exerts its mood-enhancing effects.
- Better sleep
CBD helps to reduce stress and anxiety, which are the two major causes of lack of sleep. By helping you to relax, CBD enables you to fall asleep faster and stay asleep for longer. This way, you can reap the benefits of adequate sleep, which include better moods, increased productivity and improved overall health.
Where does Wunder Workshop source its ingredients?
Wunder Workshop predominately sources most of its ingredients, including Turmeric from family and community farms in Sri Lanka. Here crops grow naturally, free from the influence of chemicals, thanks to their unique farming technique, Forest Gardening. The method imitates nature’s biodiversity by establishing beneficial relationships between plants. Unlike in commercial farms, this farming method assists in restoring the soil’s nutrition and improves moisture retention. The CBD utilized by Wunder Workshop comes from European grown cannabis strains that are also nurtured in a chemical-free environment.
All you need to know about CBD
The Cannabis Sativa plant was once a wild plant before it was domesticated for easiest exploitation of its numerous benefits. Because of its other properties(intoxication), the plant grew quite unpopular with authorities. Thus being banned and its use prohibited by law. Only recently has science been able to separate and classify the various substances in the plant.
Recent studies have uncovered that the cannabis plant is actually home to over 100 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. Among these cannabinoids, CBD and THC have managed to gain more popularity and stand out from the rest. These two compounds have an almost similar chemical structure, but their effects on the human body differ significantly. The main difference is that unlike CBD, THC possesses psychoactive effects, and its consumption causes intoxication. The lack of intoxicating effects makes CBD a perfect candidate for use in cannabis-based products.
The discovery of CBD and its health benefits restored the glory of the cannabis plant. Consequently, this has seen an increase in its use both for leisure and for its health benefits. There are two main variants of the Cannabis Sativa Plant; these are hemp and marijuana. The two differ significantly in their chemical composition, with hemp containing more CBD than THC and marijuana possessing higher quantities of THC than CBD. That is the primary reason why companies participating in large scale production of CBD products prefer to use hemp over marijuana.
The laws and regulations governing the use of CBD differ significantly from country to country. While some countries such as Israel and Uruguay appreciate the role of CBD in society, some states still criminalize its use. In the UK, the use of CBD products is permissible as long as they are derived from an EU-approved strain, and they do not contain THC. That said, before you travel with your product, it is always advisable to check the legal status of CBD in your country of destination.

Why We Love It
Wunder Workshop assures that all its products are 100% organic. To keep this promise, the company sources its ingredients from farms that strictly adhere to growing their crops free from the influence of chemicals.
Adaptogen CBD oil is made from plant-derived raw materials. No animal products or by-products are utilized in the manufacturing process of this product. This makes it suitable for consumption and use by vegans and vegetarians alike.
THC has gained unpopularity because of the characteristic high that follows its consumption. This is often characterized by anxiety, confusion, hallucinations, delusions and sometimes violent behaviour. Because of these effects, its presence in goods intended for human use is highly discouraged by the FDA. Wunder Workshop cares and strictly adheres to the set guidelines; therefore, it ensures that this product does not contain THC.
Third-party lab tested
All Wunder Workshop products have to undergo testing and approval by their nutritional expert before release. Still, their CBD products have to go through further rounds of testing in an ISO-certified third-party laboratory. This is to ensure that the products are safe for consumption and use by the public.
Protected in Miron Violet glass
Wunder Workshop chose to use this type of glass bottle for two primary reasons. The first reason is that the Miron blocks the visible light rays. Prolonged periods of exposure to light could cause decomposition of the oil and thus interferes with its potency and quality. Secondly, the glass allows a beneficial type of light to penetrate, which not only prevents the multiplication of microorganisms but also re-energizes the CBD oil, increasing its strength.
Adaptogen CBD Oil (500mg) is a perfect blend of five of nature’s most potent ingredients, plus olive oil. These ingredients are CBD (Cannabidiol from Cannabis Sativa L.), extracted turmeric oil (from Curcuma longa rhizome), Superior Ashwagandha, Mucuna Pruriens extract and BioPerine (black pepper extract).
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years both as food and for its medicinal value. Unfortunately, it is not very bioavailable, and this limits the ability of the body to reap any benefits. However, when Turmeric is paired with BioPerine, a black pepper extract, its bioavailability increases by about 2000%. This is quite beneficial to the body and allows Curcumin to reach higher concentrations in circulation. The following are the benefits of Turmeric to the human body:
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Potent antioxidant
- Improves memory
- Helps enhance one’s mood
- Helps the body fight common infection-causing microorganisms
How to Use
The sublingual route of supplement intake bypasses the digestive system. The result is that you experience a faster onset of action and enjoy a higher bioavailability, contrary to when supplements are directly swallowed.
Use the dropper to place up to ten drops under your tongue, then hold in place for as long as possible before swallowing. Absorption takes place in 20-30 minutes, with the oil remaining active for 2-6 hours.
Whether you are new or not to the supplement scene, it is advisable to always consult with your doctor before taking any CBD product. This is especially important if you are taking any prescribed medications that might interact with CBD oil.
To make sure that you do not exceed the recommended daily doses of each of the active ingredients, it is essential that you stick to the prescribed dose of up to 10 drops twice a day. Ten drops are equivalent to 1ml, which delivers 16.7mg of CBD and 670mg of Turmeric.
The manufacturer recommends you store Adaptogen CBD Oil (500mg, 30ml) in a dry and cool place, away from direct sunlight and the reach of children. You should preferably store the supplement in its original packaging to avoid mistaken identity.
- Turmeric is not to be used by children under three years.
- Do not exceed the recommended dosage.
- In case you experience any adverse effects, discontinue and seek urgent medical attention.
- Consult your doctor if you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are taking prescribed medications.
- Avoid use in pregnant and lactating women, unless under strict supervision.
- This is a food supplement; it does not heal, cure or diagnose any medical condition.
