Santa Monica, Calif. — Phivida Holdings Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its flagship line of high performance Nano-CBD (nanoencapsulated-cannabidiol) infused beverages into the U.S. athletic and sports medicine market.
Phivida Nano-CBD Sport line of beverages are designed to maximize physical, mental performance for athletes, fitness professionals and everyday health conscious consumers. The Phivida Nano-CBD product lineup incorporates full-spectrum hemp oil in combination with a proprietary blend of organic, plant based nutraceuticals rich in CBD and other non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
Phivida Nano-CBD is designed to enhance bioavailability at an estimated 400%+ higher absorption rate of cannabinoids to achieve a faster acting, longer lasting, and timed release effect within the body. Encapsulated cannabinoids are quickly becoming the preferred delivery method among naturopathic clinicians and integrated sports therapists for strength training and recovery regiments. Nano-CBD full spectrum hemp oil extract, could prove to be a powerful antioxidant, neuroprotectant and anti-inflammatory.
Each proprietary blend was developed by a team of scientific experts, including registered nutritionists, cannabinoid pharmacologists in conjunction with Phivida Clinical Advisory Team (led by the former President of the British ColumbiaCollege of Naturopathic Doctors), the former Chief Food Science Technician from Dole Juices (later sold to PepsiCo.) and a Health Canada recognized Quality Assurance Professional. Phivida Nano-CBD is cGMP certified and 3rd party tested for safety, potency and efficacy.
Phivida Nano-CBD functions as a holistic suite of daily preventive health and competitive performance enhancement. Focus is ideal pre-workout or mental preparation for high intensity, Protect is custom designed to enhanced performance during competition or peaks of high stress and activity and Relax is used to modulate mood and provide rest and rejuvenation or post training recovery.
Focus (Orange-Grapefruit) is designed to heighten mental alertness, cognition and memory, Protect (Rasp-Blueberry) targets stress relief, anti-inflammation; immune defence and nervous system protection, and Relax (Pom-Cranberry) aims to modulate mood, stress and sleep.
“Phivida’s Nano-CBD infused functional foods and natural health products provides a therapeutic dose of cannabinoids and meet professional standards of QA/C and third-party lab tests for safety and efficacy which provides licensed naturopathic doctors a greater level of comfort when recommending products to patients and fellow alternative health care practitioners,” said Dr. Brian Martin, practicing ND and former President of the BC College of Naturopaths.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) recent announcement to remove CBD from the banned substance list opens Phivida products to a global emerging market of sports medicine, competitive athletes, multinational supplement retailers1 (e.g. CVS, Wholefoods, GNC) and thousands of licensed healthcare clinics2. The announcement gives way to athletes for the first time in the history of competitive sports to take CBD and potentially replace toxic opiates and other harmful pharmaceuticals with a natural alternative to manage pain without risk of addiction, side-effects, or serious health complications.

Cannabinoids, (especially CBD) are widely studied for their general preventative and therapeutic effects on inflammation based disorders such as; pain, anxiety, insomnia, appetite, and researched for their potentially curative properties on; glandular cancer (brain, breast, thyroid, prostate, etc.) and Neurodegenerative diseases (MS, Alzheimer’s, Epilepsy, etc.).
