Representing approximately 50% of our planet's dry biomass, carbon is considered an essential component to all known life forms on earth. While most forms of carbon are not suited for human consumption, Carbon 60 (C60) is often formulated with other compounds for it's antioxidant and bioactive properties.
Joshua Raderman (Boulder, CO) and Kevin Fortin (Williams, IN) recently submitted a U.S. patent application for a formula including C60 and cannabinoids. They suggest the addition of C60 to cannabinoid-based products improves the active "shelf life of cannabinoids and inhibits degradation of the cannabinoids over time due to oxidation." On a cellular level, C60 "enhance(s) the bioactivity of the cannabinoids" while interacting with the human body.
