Why is your product better?

The Body Armor product line has been researched and developed by career scientists. The pair of minds behind the brand boasts a combined 60 years of chemistry, compounding pharmacy, and physiology research/development and production. For this reason, they believe that the CBD products are the top of the line on the market. The products are unique and offer specific modes of action and specialized formulations to relieve a variety of ailments.

Why is a tablet better than oil based?

The Unbound tablets have been developed to deliver maximum absorption by the human body. Cannabidiol has a great affinity to sorb to the compounds in oil that are traditionally offered to consumers as tinctures or other oil-based CBD ingestibles. Research has shown that in oil-based products, only 5-7% of the CBD is getting absorbed and utilized by the body. Therefore, an intended dosage of 50mg CBD may only result in 2.5-3.5mg cbd absorbed into the body. The developers of Unbound wanted to circumvent poor CBD absorption by forming a water soluble compound and offer our customers the maximum amount of broad spectrum CBD as possible. Everyone will find a dosage that fits their specific needs, whether the potency is a 6.25mg, 12.5mg, or 25mg tablet.

Who makes this product?

Body Armor products are a family owned and operated business, which was started by a pair of scientific minds who boast approximately 60 years of scientific research/development and production between them in the fields of chemistry, compounding pharmacy, and human physiology. After 40+ years in compounding pharmacy, owner J. Charles Hakala PPh wanted to expand his product line to include pain management, anxiety, and other therapeutics. Co-owner and chemist, AJ Hakala M.S. wanted to research a way to bounce back quickly from intense cycling workouts, grueling hours in the rally car, and everyday life. The pair originally went on a venture to a pet fair in Las Vegas to do market research on a completely unrelated project. The abundance of CBD products in the pet realm made them want to enter the human therapeutic side of the industry after making many industry contacts (not necessarily pet related) during the excursion in Vegas. Body Armor product line was born during the summer of 2018 after several trials and much research.

What is CBD and what is the biology?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a group of compounds that are found in the plant, Cannabis sativa L. CBD utilized in our applications is harvested from the hemp plant (the male cannabis plant) and does not contain the psychoactive compound, THC. Cannabidiol has been used therapeutically since around 2900 BCE. The group of compounds are utilized by impacting the endocannabinoid receptors and interaction with neurotransmitters.

Can I overdose from this?

No over dosage or adverse effects of taking a large quantity of CBD have ever been reported.

Whats the difference with the MG sizes?

All CBD dosages are based on the same formulation, but have different weights.

How long will this last?

The effects of the tablet can be felt anywhere from 2-6 hours depending on the desired effect or discomfort felt by the patient.
The tablets themselves have a shelf life of approximately 1 year if the products are kept out of direct light or heat since the active compounds in hemp oil are very photoactive.

Is this legal to use?

The products do not contain any THC. Every batch of hemp oil that Body Armor Products starts with has been laboratory tested to be “non-detect” for THC compounds. The developers take this extremely seriously as many of the customers work in the oil field, are in competitive professional sports, or other professions that require drug testing.
- The customer should always consult their employer or sanctioning body before using any products with CBD to ensure legal use of products.
