Hemp Advantage Plus combines organic, broad-spectrum hemp extract with palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), a bioactive lipid, for a formula designed to support the body’s endocannabinoid system.
PEA, a bioactive lipid molecule that the body produces naturally in response to noxious stimuli, can also be found in lipid extracts of plants and vegetables such as egg yolk, soybean lecithin, and many more.1 PEA has been researched for over 70 years and has a wide range of clinical applications from mild discomfort and immune system support to mood and neurological health.*
Clinical evidence supports the application of PEA in occasional bodily discomfort.*
Preclinical studies have indicated PEA helps support neurological health by supporting healthy mood, cognitive functions, and motor function.*
PEA supports the healthy function of immune cells.*2,3
Hemp extract consists of a wide range of naturally occuring beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and other plant compounds.4,5 The broad-spectrum hemp oil in Hemp Advantage Plus contains a custom blend of phytocannabinoids, naturally occurring terpenes, and terpenes from black pepper and cloves.
Terpenes are fragrant oils naturally present in many plants and spices, including citrus fruit rinds, mango, thyme, black pepper, peppermint, to name just a few.6 These molecules are known to carry a wide array of beneficial properties.

Together, phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and PEA may work synergistically to support the function of the endocannabinoid system (ECS)—providing greater benefits than any of these compounds alone.* This is called the "entourage effect."
