UK brand Nooro has launched two new CBD snack bars as it looks to tap into consumer demand for functional snacking options.
Nooro’s banana and cinnamon bar contains the amino acid theanine, which the brand says “helps to prevent the brain from producing an anxious response to stressful situations”.
Meanwhile, the cacao and coconut flavour includes tyrosine, an amino acid that “improves alertness, attention and focus”.
Both variants are vegan and have been released following the pilot launch of a lemon and ginger CBD bar earlier this year.
Nooro aims to provide consumers with an accessible and tasty way to consume CBD. Its range of snack bars combines 25mg of CBD from organically grown hemp with nootropics that “help to support cognitive function and mind performance”.
Both flavours also contain oats, peanut butter, chicory root, cacao nibs, iron, magnesium, copper and zinc.
Brand co-founder JD Furlong said: “Nooro’s naturally functional CBD snack bars make the benefits of consuming cannabis more accessible than ever before. With our extended portfolio of natural nootropics and snack bars in popular flavour combinations, Nooro is a convenient and nutritious way for consumers to incorporate CBD into their lives.”
The latest additions also contain oats for slow-release energy, peanut butter as a source of healthy fats, chicory root to support gut health, as well as cacao nibs, iron, magnesium, copper and zinc.
Both bars are available in the UK with a recommended retail price of £2.95 per 45g.
