The Science

“There were never so many able, active minds at work on the problems of diseases as now, and all their discoveries are tending to the simple truth – that you can’t improve on nature.”

Thomas Alva Edison

What is “Activated Hemp?”

When hemp is heated at high temperatures (decarboxylation), it’s bioavailability increases, meaning it is able to enter circulation in the body and have an active effect.  This “activation” creates an increase in the effectiveness of the cannabinoids and other healing ingredients in the Arcanum formulation. Activated hemp has been shown to support recovery time and performance by upregulating your cells, allowing them to communicate and carry on the reactions necessary to help your body recover faster and smarter through cannabinoids. The body makes cannabinoids naturally in order to maintain homeostasis, but only when necessary and not to the amount we could use or utilize.  Enter Arcanum’s unique product suite.

Why Activated Hemp?

All Arcanum products use activated hemp oil to supplement your body’s endocannabinoid system with cannabinoids. Our products have been specially formulated by Mary’s Nutritionals to provide healing benefits, alleviate soreness, upregulate cells, increase performance and accelerate recovery. By activating hemp we effectively increase the bioavailability of the cannabinoids, which assists in increasing the therapeutic index of additional performance and recovery ingredients in your Arcanum product.

Why supplement with cannabinoids like those found in your Arcanum product?

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is one of the oldest systems found in the human body. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout all major organs in the human body. By supplementing with cannabinoids, you are helping your ECS function more efficiently and optimally.

Cannabinoids are extremely effective in managing soreness, overuse and swelling post exercise. Cannabinoids are potent swelling-reducing agents and they exert their effects through induction of apoptosis (cellular suicide), inhibition of cell proliferation, suppression of cytokine production and induction of T-regulatory cells (Tregs).  What does all this mean?  It means you are upgrading your body from a molecular level and enhancing what it does naturally.


Recover without stressing your internal system with our innovative dermal and liposomal delivery systems.

  • Dermal delivery avoids first pass metabolism and may be considered a direct route to the bloodstream.  It’s convenient and easy to use, reduces toxicity, decreases dosing frequency, is continually release therefore improving efficacy and dose control.
  • Liposomal delivery similarly increases product efficacy and therapeutic benefits. It reduces useless product metabolism as it is absorbed in the mucus membranes of the mouth and intestines. Liposomes act as a carrier-think of the liposomes as a car and the ingredients as the passengers. Arcanum utilizes liposomal delivery to increase the bioavailability, therapeutic index and effects of activated hemp and other performance improving agents.

All Arcanum ingredients have been tested in house and by a third party, state certified lab. Activated hemp is legal under the 2014 US Farm Bill and has been approved for use in sport by USADA and WADA. All Arcanum products are manufactured in facilities that do not allow any substances on the USADA/WADA “Banned List.”
