The Uplifters’ Prima PBC (Prima), has introduced Chill Out, a vegan CBD chew featuring a patent-pending, nutrient-dense formula.
Prima is an award-winning, science-backed whole body wellness brand making potent plant therapeutic skincare, body care and supplements. Prima claims its Chill Out product outperforms traditional gummy and CBD gummy in ingredient quality, delivery system and overall efficacy.
Co-developed with a neuropharmacologist and nutritional biochemist, Chill Out is designed to address underlying nutrient deficiencies of the body that contribute to stress, burnout, and fatigue. Its patent-pending, plant-powered delivery system addresses major deficiencies with traditional gummies. Combining 20-milligrams of broad-spectrum organic hemp CBD per serving, plus magnesium and 10 neuro-supportive nutrients, Chill Out reduces stress, soothes tension and supports healthy adrenal function.
“The modern day stress epidemic is wreaking havoc on our bodies and minds, and we all need daily, fast relief to escape the chaos. Unlike the standard gummies that are loaded with sugar and toxins, we spent over two years designing a truly health-conscious formula that enables immediate uptake via oral micro-vascular absorption, surpassing traditional gummies with its exceptional bioavailability and optimal absorption,” said Christopher Gavigan, Prima’s founder and co-CEO. “Co-developed by leading doctors, Chill Out’s patent-pending plant-based formula manages healthy cortisol levels and actively calms the body and mind within minutes. It’s a delightful, instant way to take the edge off and just chill, without the hangover or the high.”
The $3.7 billion global gummy vitamin and supplement market is ripe for innovation and a healthier, better-for-you solution. The majority of products on the market contain known questionable, unhealthy ingredient types: refined, immune-suppressing sugars, toxic and even carcinogenic FD&C food dyes, and animal by-products like gelatin.
As the $14.2 billion vegan market size reaches $31.4 billion by 2026, informed consumers are demanding alternatives that align with their values as they adopt more plant-led lifestyles. The $21 billion global CBD gummy market is expected to grow to $13.9 billion by 2028, and Prima’s Chill Out plans to set the new elevated standard for pure, conscious ingredients and format innovation.
“Due to the nature of the gummy product format and manufacturing process, the serving size is typically four to five gummies to ensure high doses of meaningful ingredients, which leads to excessive sugar and calories for a nutritional benefit, or alternatively, a very limited ingredient offering. Chill Out’s novel food matrix allows for dense nutrient and vitamin delivery in only two refined-sugar-free chews,” said Laurel Angelica Myers, Prima’s co-founder and co-CEO.
Chill Out’s launch campaign, “No Gummy Business,” aims to educate consumers about the negative health effects of traditional CBD gummies and gummy vitamins by questioning the typical ingredients in these products.
“The CBD gummy is contradictory in nature. How can we be calling this a health product when the majority on the market contain known toxins like refined sugar, artificial food dyes and animal byproducts like gelatin that don’t align with the vegan and plant-based lifestyle? It’s time we stop undermining the helpful active ingredients in these products with unnecessary additives. Finally, there’s a better alternative, with added benefits,” said Jessica Assaf, Prima’s co-founder and chief education officer.
Prima is available online at prima.co and at over 1000 retailers nationwide, including Sephora, The Vitamin Shoppe, Thrive Market, The Detox Market, Amazon, Nordstrom, Pharmaca, Erewhon Market, and Milk & Honey. Chill Out is available on Prima’s DTC website and app, and it will be launching in 600+ The Vitamin Shoppe stores nationwide in July.
