Aceso’s parent company, Dixie Brands, is a widely popular manufacturer of infused products in the west. Beverage powders are a popular wellness item so it will be interesting to see how well these new forms of CBD products perform. Aceso products are marketed as a wellness aid, stating “restore your basic nature” and “fostering health with hemp” on Aceso’s homepage. Aceso has also demonstrated their knowledge of the entourage effect with a quote on their website acknowledging that the interaction of terpenes produces a therapeutic effect. The entourage effect, also known as the “whole plant effect,” states that the interaction of various compounds produces a greater effect on the body than the interaction of the compounds in isolation. As a whole, it’s worth trying Aceso beverage powders. However, CBD consumers would benefit from greater transparency from the industry — most importantly, being able to view independent third party lab testing results for potency and contaminants. It would be wise for consumers to view these results, if available, and to encourage their favorite brands to make testing information public.
