Ingredient Alliance Inc. is a vertically integrated grower and supplier that uses specialized genetics to create a variety of water soluble cannabinoids for use in food, beverages and personal care products. The water-soluble ingredients contain 20% active cannabinoids by volume, allowing retail product manufacturers to make more potent merchandise with less filler. According to a Eurofins study, bioavailability can be as high as 70%, compared to the 12% derived from traditional oil-based cannabinoids. Water soluble cannabinoids also yield clearer liquids with no cloudiness or settling.
Ingredient Alliance’s own private label merchandise also incorporates a number of derivatives from the hemp cannabinoid family, including CBN, which purportedly aids sleep and relaxation, and CBG, a muscle relaxant that may be an option to drugs like Flexeril. Its family of functional beverages includes hemp tea and hemp H20, which have hydrating benefits and contain non-psychoactive hemp extract. The extract is said to ease inflammation, anxiety and joint pain.
Personal care offerings include a CBD patch with 40 mg of CBD. It also produces pain reliving CBD- and CBG-infused compression sleeves for various parts of the body, with the cannabinoids at a 4 to 1 ratio to each other, creating a unique genetic combination. A CBN sleep mask and a CBN sleep cream are infused with lavender essential oils. The sleep cream has 25 mg of CBN per 30 ml. There is also a skincare line made with natural ingredients.
Ingredient Alliance supports sustainable farming and processing and operates its own farms in Northern California and other parts of the U.S. It conducts clean soil sampling and provides traceability information from seed to sale.
