Dr. Laviolette and his team made the amazing discovery, a pure plant-based pharmaceutical-grade cannabidiol (CBD) isolate plus natural omega-3 active IP formula. Pre-clinical trial results have demonstrated that it effectively crosses the blood-brain barrier “BBB” to target neurological conditions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and addiction. www.laviolettelab.com
