The Science Behind TONIC’s Magic

Cannabinoid-based therapies are the future of wellness. At TONIC, we have our eye on the long-term and are focused on creating a product that will positively impact peoples’ lives in a real, sustainable way. In the coming years we will see CBD become a staple in the daily routine of health-conscious people everywhere. Like taking a daily vitamin,  CBD should be taken everyday to maintain your body’s essential balance .

We elevate that daily dose to further suit your needs and deliver a more predictable, balanced approach to plant-powered wellness. Each ingredient in your TONIC product is mindfully selected; they all serve their own purpose and complement each other’s actions in the body. These purposeful, plant-based, synergistic ingredients come together to form TONIC’s Special Sauce.

TONIC’s Special Sauce

CBD alone has incredible benefits, but what happens when you combine it with a unique blend of holistic, healing ingredients? You get TONIC’s Special Sauce: the science-backed magic of every TONIC blend.

Full Spectrum Hemp Extract

The CBD in TONIC Doses comes from full spectrum hemp extract. This means a complete profile of therapeutic plant compounds – cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids – are all able to work together to optimize health and wellness. (view Certificates of Analysis)

Benefits of full spectrum CBD range from inflammation and immune system support to relaxation and anxiety management. CBD has been said to balance mood, sleep patterns, and blood sugar levels while carrying anti-bacterial, antioxidant and neuroprotectant properties.

Black Seed Oil

Black Seed Oil is known for its incredible effects on the immune system. A study conducted by Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College researchers set out to determine just how potent black seed oil against some of these superbugs and pared it against several antibiotics, such as Amoxicillin, Gatifloxacin, and Tetracycline. According to the study, “Out of 144 strains tested, most of which were resistant to a number of antibiotics, 97 were inhibited by the oil of black cumin.”

Black seed oil has been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial.


Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb. This means that once it enters your system it adapts to your specific needs to correct imbalances and bring you closer to homeostasis: your body’s ideal internal state. Ashwagandha, found in The OG and Chill TONIC, complements and elevates the effects of CBD, creating a more effective way to balance and heal body and mind.

Adaptogenic ashwagandha is known for its ability to strengthen the body’s defenses against the effects of chronic stress. It also shows an ability to control anxiety while promoting heightened mental clarity and physical endurance.

Pure Maple

We use pure maple to sweeten TONIC Doses (hemp extract combined with black seed oil doesn’t have the best taste), but we made sure we were not compromising quality for the sake of flavor. There is only 3mL of maple in your 30mL TONIC Dose, which equates to < .25g sugar per 1mL serving. Organic pure maple syrup has a number of health benefits, as well as an awesome taste!

Our locally sourced maple from SweeTrees farms is an antioxidant that provides nutrients like zinc and manganese. Maple has also been shown to be anti-inflammatory and it carries a much lower glycemic index than table sugar, even lower than honey!

Lemon Balm and Passionflower

TONIC stands by the belief that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Every organically grown, non-GMO ingredient in TONIC has a purpose.
