What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the phytochemicals (plant-based molecules) naturally occurring in Hemp. Extracted Hemp oil has been used in a wide range of treatments dating back more than 3,000 years. One of the components likely responsible for this is CBD.
Recent Scientific research has identified two primary Cannabinoid receptors in the human body: CB1 and CB2. These are embedded in cell membranes and present throughout the entire body. CB1 receptors are most common in the hippocampus and other parts of the Central Nervous System, multiple organs, and glands. While CBD research has indicated the potential for anti-convulsant properties, CB2 receptors are also now being studied for their important role in suppression of both pain and inflammatory processes. Many scientists are keen to learn more about how this valuable molecule can help treat a variety of medical conditions.
While other cannabinoids can create a sense of euphoria, CBD does not cause the same psychoactive effects when consumed. In fact, through it’s interaction with the endocannabinoid system, CBD has been shown to suppress the psychoactive effects of THC by blocking uptake of THC at cannabinoid receptors.
How is it Valuable?
CBD is gaining popularity due to recent breakthroughs in the medical potential of this compound. Research has been focusing on CBD in recent years, with the results from Brazil, Spain and Israel suggesting a wide range of medical benefits. There is some anecdotal evidence to suggest that CBD might be valuable to manage these conditions, but the scientific research is still being conducted.*

What is Sunrise™ CBD?
Sunderstorm’s Sunrise™ CBD is a nano-molecular mixture of phospholipids, Vitamin E and other beneficial compounds carefully formulated and engineered in a pharmaceutical grade, CGMP (FDA-compliant) laboratory to efficiently deliver the CBD molecules directly into the bloodstream. Our hemp oil is extracted using the same clean, solvent-free, supercritical CO2 technology used to decaffeinate your morning coffee.
Our nano-molecular technology uses Phospholipid Encapsulation commonly used by pharmaceutical companies for ultra-high bio-availability of molecules to the body. Phospholipid therapy, using both injectable forms and oral forms, has been used for decades by pharmaceutical and nutraceutical firms. When the Sunrise mixture is held sublingually under the tongue for 90 seconds the CBD can enter the bloodstream within minutes delivering the valuable CBD molecules to the body. You will likely begin to feel the effects almost immediately.
With our commitment to deliver the highest quality to our customers, Sunderstorm Scientific’s products are quality tested by professional third-party laboratories with certifiable results.
Is Sunrise CBD different than other products?
Yes! With most capsules, tinctures, and edibles, the digestive track dilutes absorption of CBD. Thus most of the valuable cannabinoids are wasted, and it forces the liver to metabolize what CBD remains in the GI tract. Dosage is difficult to predict because the onset of oral medication is slow and so many variables in the digestive system impact absorption.
While there are a variety of CBD Hemp Oil products on the market, and a few of them claim to have nano-technology, only Sunrise has been tested for bioavailability in the bloodstream, and by third party laboratories with documented certification of the size of our nano-particles (30-50nm). Liposomal delivery brings the power of intravenous therapy into convenient oral delivery. While typical absorption of hemp oil is poor, with only about 10% uptake in the gut, these nano-particles are small enough to begin absorption as soon as they hit your mouth. Liposomal encapsulation of compounds have been shown to increase bioavailability five-fold to ten-fold. Our pharmaceutical-grade Sunrise CBD outperforms other products thanks to smaller, more stable, single-layer spheres made from the highest-grade ingredients available. In a recent test of cannabinoid uptake against results published by a leading pharmaceutical competitor, our liposomal hemp oil entered the bloodstream in amounts three times greater, at half the dose. Moreover, the phospholipids that comprise the liposome outer layer provide food for the cell membranes, which promotes cellular function including absorption of nutrients. Just another added benefit to Sunrise!
Sunderstorm Scientific’s Sunrise sets a new standard in delivering faster, stronger, and more reliable CBD medication. Leveraging advances in the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industries, our new nano-particle formulations are proven to be more effective than the competitor’s tinctures, sprays and capsules. Sunderstorm’s commitment to science raises the bar for the American consumer.

What's a Liposome and why is it important?
Is there any science to back up the anecdotal evidence of benefits?
Because of the known interaction of CBD with these receptors, significant new research has focused on CBD’s neuro-protective, antiemetic, and analgesic properties, and of its effect on mood and other aspects of mental health. New research on gene transcription modulation offers an even deeper look into the biochemical mechanisms at work when ingesting CBD. New research has shown more than 1,000 genes that are modulated by CBD. This research is beginning to paint a picture demonstrating the effects of this powerful molecule could include anti-oxidant defense, regulation of detoxification genes, and suppression of inflammation-promoting genes. That’s exciting news! These effects reveal great promise for its use in calming the neuro-inflammatory responses that accompany neurotoxic and chronic disease states. Stay tuned as more research is published in the coming years.
What about the cartridges? Are they pure CBD?
Yes, our cartridges are made from the same Hemp Oil used to make the Sunrise products.
