Frequently Asked Questions

We are currently building out a more in depth help center. 


Do I need to refrigerate Lucid?

No. Lucid should be stored safely in a cool, dark place, but there is no need to refrigerate.

When should I take Lucid?

Lucid is designed to be taken thirty minutes prior to bed to optimize your sleep and recovery. We do not suggest taking Lucid if you are not planning on going to bed, because it will cause drowsiness.

Will Lucid make me drowsy?

Yes! Lucid is supposed to make you feel drowsy and ease you into sleep when you take it. Its anti-stress, anti-inflammation, and restorative properties will help you fall asleep. Lucid should not make you feel drowsy in the morning after taking it the previous evening. If you feel lethargic upon waking, we suggest taking a smaller serving size in the evening.

What is the suggested serving size?

This depends on you. While testing Lucid, our team found that women need way less than men to feel Lucid's effects. After some experimentation, we've found the sweet spot for women to be 5 - 11 drops. If you're taller or heavier, take more. For men, we suggest starting at 15 drops to see how you sleep, and then bump up your servings accordingly. Once you’ve established your personal baseline, you can take up to 30 drops (⅔ of a dropper) per use.

How long will one bottle of Lucid last?

One bottle of Lucid should last  30 days if taken at the suggested serving size of 30 drops. If you're taking less than the suggested serving per night, obviously the bottle will last longer depending on how much you're taking. 

Is Lucid for men or women?

Both men and women can benefit from Lucid.

My dropper is clogged. What should I do?

Sorry about that! Sometimes it happens when the ingredients settle. Make sure the lid is securely fastened and give the bottle a good shake. That might dislodge it. If not, simply pop the rubber end off and rinse the dropper with warm water until the clog is gone. Then carefully dry it, and insert the rubber end back into the dropper.  

Why do I put Lucid under my tongue?

Maximum absorption. Administering Lucid directly under your tongue absorbs Lucid’s bioactive molecules directly into your bloodstream. By absorbing Lucid through your mouth, you’ll bypass liver metabolization and bioactive degradation that would occur in your gastrointestinal tract if you consumed it by swallowing.

How long should I keep Lucid in my mouth?

90 seconds. While you have Lucid in your under your tongue, we also suggest gently using your tongue to coat the inside of your mouth and gums with Lucid.

Can I take Lucid with my medication?

You will need to contact the doctor who prescribed your medication to ask this question. We are not doctors and we do not provide medical advice.

What is a 43:1 ratio?

For every 43 pounds of elk antler used, we get 1 pound of finished antler ingredient. This makes our formulation exceptionally concentrated.

Does harvesting the Velvet Antler Extract hurt the elk?

No. The elk are not harmed when their antlers are harvested. An onsite veterinarian oversees the harvesting process to ensure that the elk are treated exceptionally and experience no stress. The elks’ antlers are trimmed each spring when they are in their cartilaginous, fastest growing, and most nutrient dense state. During this time of year, antlers grow approximately one inch per day. We liken this harvesting process to trimming your toenails. Besides not wanting to hurt the elk, caring for the animal during harvesting is our own best interest, too. A stressed animal would not produce superior product. We only sell superior product.

What happens after the antlers are harvested?

The antler is freeze-dried within 5 minutes to preserve its nutrient density and bioactive availability of growth factors. This allows for a protein concentration of 95% in our products. We then use a proprietary 3 step method to extract the antlers growth factors, proteins, and nutrients into organic grape alcohol. The elk then go about their day as usual. 

Is Lucid a vegetarian / vegan product?

Definitely not. 

Why do you use organic grape alcohol?

Grape alcohol stimulates the absorption of the components of our products, and preserves the organic compounds of our product. Our grape alcohol is hypoallergenic, organic, gluten free, and non-GMO.
