Bio Nutrient Medicinals. Patient-based care.

The A.C.T Now program is FREE robust, holistic program offering a customized combination of 100% plant-derived Prana products, nutritional guidelines, nursing support, delivery services, on-site visitation and electronic medical chart management. Each patient is assigned to a nurse with an online HIPAA compliant patient portal to schedule consultations, make follow up appointments, review conditions in a 3d medical library, and access to customized cannabinoid sequencing charts. 

Together, these products and services have had a profound affect on patients diagnosed with many severe illnesses.

How does it work?

Based on a patient’s diagnosis, our products and programs are designed to help regulate the endogenous endocannabinoid system, perhaps the most important physiological system in maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body and are responsible for homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment.

Prana Medicinal products use a patent-pending infusion process utilizing select fatty acids, lipids, and essential oils to increase cannabinoid bioavailability over 300%! Bioavailability of CBDa, CBD, THCa, THC, or CBN varies greatly by delivery method. Smoking typically delivers cannabinoids at an average bioavailability rate of 30%. Cannabinoids that are absorbed through the mucous membranes in the mouth have bioavailability rate of around 13%. By comparison, orally consumed cannabis edibles typically deliver cannabinoids at an average bioavailability rate of only 5%. 

With the A.C.T Now program, patients receive guidance in ordering Prana products, managing electronic medical records, receive nursing support, on-site visitations, at-home deliveries and more.

Brent A. Reynolds, Ph.D. Chief Medical Advisor

Brent A. Reynolds, Ph.D., attended the University of Calgary, where he received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. in 1989 and 1994, respectively. While working on his Ph.D. thesis Reynolds co-discovered the existence of stem cells in the adult mammalian brain, a finding that overcame a century old dogma that the mature brain did not have the capacity to repair itself. After graduating, Reynolds co-founded the first neural stem cell company, NeuroSpheres, Ltd., where he was a director and vice president of research. Here he developed a strong patent portfolio in the neural stem cell field, developing and protecting protocols related to the application of stem cell technology in brain repair. Today, these patents and technology have been licensed to numerous biotechnology companies that are testing the efficacy in over half a dozen clinical trials for diseases such as spinal cord injury, stroke, ALS and pediatric disorders. After a brief hiatus, where Reynolds studied and practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine, he returned to industry working with StemCell Technologies in Vancouver, Canada. In 2004, Reynolds returned to academic science as a professor at the Queensland Brain Institute at the University of Queensland in Australia where he continued refining the application of neural stem cells for repairing the damaged brain. In 2008, Reynolds was recruited to the department of Neurosurgery at the University of Florida and has focused his efforts on studying aggressive pediatric and adult brain cancer and developing novel translational approaches to combat this lethal disease. Working with a multidisciplinary group of scientists, the team is taking the unique approach that cancer can be managed as a chronic disease by applying the principles that have been used in ecology to manage wildlife and pest populations. Based on the lessons learned over the past 80 years by ecologists, the team is focused on using multimodal low toxicity therapeutics to enforce a stable tumor population that exists below a threshold that has any harmful effects. Dr. Reynolds has more than 60 publications, including papers in Science, Cell and Nature, with several manuscripts receiving over 1,000 citations. In addition, he is an inventor on 18 granted US patents. Dr. Reynolds is currently a professor in the department of neurosurgery at UF; adjunct professor at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia; an honorary professor at the Queensland Brain Institute, Australia; and program director for StepAhead, Australia. NIH, NHMRC and numerous foundations have funded his lab. 

Dr. Reynolds oversees the preclinical and human clinical trials for Prana Bio Nutrient Medicinals. Patients registered on the A.C.T Now program qualify for human observational trials to explore the efficacy of their program.
