About US

“Venga venga venga!” – the chant screamed by Spaniards to support their athletes is loosely translated to mean “Come on! Let’s go!”

We felt this to be a fitting name for a company whose mission is to help it’s customers succeed in their sport. As endurance athletes ourselves, we use our products every day to help us recover from training, alleviate mental stress and help us stay resilient as we age.

All of our formulas, products, and research are driven toward improving the performance and lives of endurance athletes.

CBD has the potential to replace so many traditional pharmaceuticals while providing a wealth of additional benefits to the body and mind.

We hope you join us on this journey by adding this plant-based remedy to your endurance life!

Frequently Asked Questions

We're here to help you get the most out of your CBD. These are the top questions we receive but if you don't see an answer to your questions please contact us.

FAQ

What is “nano-emulsion” and how does it make Venga CBD superior to other CBD?

Nanoemulsion is the process of breaking down a liquid substance into smaller, nano-sized particles. The average size of our CBD oil droplet is 25 nanometers, compared with 100-5000 nanometers that is usually obtained by using the industry standard liposomal delivery method. This makes our CBD completely water soluble which transforms active compounds into nano sized emulsions making them highly bioavailable within your body and more permeable when applied to the skin. This proprietary formulation has been designed for optimum bioavailability and maximum absorption.

Nano-Technology

Where and how is your CBD sourced?

All of the hemp we use in our products is grown in Colorado. Extraction methods maintain the full plant profile - ensuring customers a full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and fatty acids from the natural plant. Cold, enclosed, and continuous manufacturing processes prevents the degradation of natural molecules during extraction and purification. No harmful solvents are used in the processing of our CBD oil and the final product is completely solvent free.

How is Venga CBD extracted from the hemp plant?

The CBD in our Ultra Gels is extracted using food grade ethanol. This method of extraction allows us to retain more of the other cannabinoids from the hemp plant and round out the complexity of our supplements. After our low level THC oil is extracted, we filter it through a proprietary process to remove 100% of the THC without compromising any of the other 112 cannabinoids. The last phase is a purification process to remove any possible contaminants.

How much CBD should I take on a daily basis?

While there is no one-size-fits-all dosage or frequency that works for every athlete, what we have found is that an initial dosage of 25mg - 50mg taken daily in the first 2 weeks to a month will show noticeable effects on both your health and general well being. Once your body has adjusted to the addition of CBD supplementation, many of our athletes rely on a consistent 25mg dose per day. During periods of intense competition or training, our top athletes take upwards of 100mg per day to fully support their body after such strenuous activity. As always please talk to your doctor about your CBD dosage needs.

I’m a pro athlete who gets drug tested. Will CBD disqualify me from racing?

Our products have no THC, a banned psychoactive component of cannabis. WADA has approved the use of CBD. Please refer to this article from WADA for more information. PLEASE NOTE: It’s your responsibility to ensure that CBD is allowed with your testing agency.

Is it best to take CBD with food or on an empty stomach?

We recommend taking Venga CBD Ultra Gels on an EMPTY stomach with water. This ensures the maximum amount of CBD is absorbed into your system. This is counter to many CBD products on the market that are NOT water soluble. Products that are not water soluble can be fat soluble therefore it’s best to take those with food.

Since Venga CBD products ARE water soluble, taking on an empty stomach is preferred.

What makes your products better than other CBD products?

We have the best CBD products on the market. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Venga CBD products are made within a vertically integrated system. What this means is that our manufacturer owns the farms and manufacturing facilities. The plants are farmed under strict guidelines using only 100% organic farming practices. All of the hemp is registered with the Colorado State Department of Agriculture and tested to ensure the THC levels are below the regulatory guidelines of 0.3%.
  2. Our products are made with a patented nano-emulsified CBD. What this means is our CBD is water soluble resulting in a bioavailability of more than 85% compared to only 6%-15% bioavailability of typical CBD products.
  3. Our phytocannabinoid rich CBD contains over 110 cannabinoids, 10 times that of typical industrial hemp while at the same time containing NO THC. This is NOT an isolate - our CBD is whole hemp plant CBD.
  4. Our Ultra Gels have curcumin added as an additional herbal extract.
How long does it take for your product to ship?

Our products ship within 1 business day or less.

Can I take CBD with additional medications?

Please check with your doctor. Let your doctor know that our Ultra Gel product contains curcumin (derived from turmeric) a strong anti-inflammatory and like Advil, can cause complications when used with blood thinners. Please consult your medical physician for any questions pertaining to the use of this product when taken in addition to other medications.

How long will it take to begin noticing the effects of CBD?

The actual timing for the product to begin working will vary depending upon the individual and his/her metabolism. We generally begin to see results in overall focus and energy within 2-3 weeks when eating right and taking the correct dosage of CBD daily.

How many Capsules should I take each day?

The recommended consumption of our product is 1-2 pills per day. We suggest that you begin by taking one pill each day until your body adjusts to the product. Once you feel comfortable, you can begin to add an additional pill each day for improved results.

What time of the day should I take my CBD?

There is no set time for which you should begin taking this product. Rather, personal preference is advised. For best results please ensure the CBD is taken on an empty stomach. Should you decide to add an additional pill to your daily regimen (for a total of 2/day) you can take these together, or you may take one in the morning and one in the evening!

What is the difference between Hemp Oil & CBD Oil, which is also known as Hemp Extract?

Although these two oils are very different, it is not uncommon for one to be confused for the other.

Hemp oil, which comes from the seeds of the hemp plant, contains practically NO CBD.

Industrial hemp oil typically contains less than 25 parts per million, while CBD oil can be up to 90% CBD.

Hemp oil is used for cooking and is also an ingredient in lotions, soaps and even some foods, and while healthy, it has little to no medicinal value.

CBD oil, also known as Hemp Extract, is also a natural component of Industrial Hemp but is made from the "above ground" parts of hemp and not from its seeds like hemp oil.

Warning: because these products are related, some unscrupulous sellers of hemp oil are trying to market it for its medicinal value, which is negligible.
