About Strange Love
What are Strange Love Mood-enhancing Gummies?
Strange Love is a line of mood-enhancing (vegan & non-GMO) gummies and capsules formulated by a team of experts in creating a variety of fun and effortless to eat, mood-enhancing gummies and adaptogens. Our vision is to inspire people with positive energy and build strong daily habits through the world of functional superfood mushrooms and therapeutic plants.
What is Strange Love?
Strange Love Cafe is the original award-winning coffee cafe based in Toronto, CA. When the pandemic closed down their two community spaces, the Founders David and Chris knew they needed to find a way to continue making people feel great! Their new coffee alone couldn’t bring their vision of good energy, good habits, and good people to life in this new world. Like the humble coffee bean, they applied the same rigour, discipline and thoughtfulness, led by our resident naturopathic doctor, to create amazing adaptogens and functional mushrooms to support your mood.
Is this legal?
We are 100% legal! We use medicinal mushrooms and other ingredients that are recreational and legal in Canada & the US.

What Science do you have to back up your claims?
There has been lots of research presented that shows that the powerful Reishi mushrooms can help enhance immune function through their positive effects on white blood cell activities, which help fight infection. Beyond their immune defence, stress-adapting and anti-inflammatory properties, they have also shown promising results for anti-cancer activities in studies by the Cancer Research Lab at the Methodist Research Institute in Indianapolis and Massey University in New Zealand.

What are Adaptogens?
Adaptogen is a term used to describe a natural agent (e.g. herb, mushroom) that helps the body be more resilient, or “adapt”, to stress. Adaptogens may tweak hormone production (by reducing cortisol, the “stress hormone”) and physiological responses to stress to ensure that your body—from your mind to your immune system to your energy levels —functions as it should. They do this mainly by acting on the adrenal glands - which are responsible for promoting a healthy stress response.
There are stimulating adaptogens, which are more energizing to the body. Some of the examples are Rhodiola, Cordyceps (Power Boost). There are also calming/relaxing adaptogens like Reishi, Holy Basil (Relax/Zen Boost); Ashwagandha (Power).
How do I store my mood-enhancing gummies/capsules?
It's fine to keep the products in the original packaging, as long as there is an airtight seal around the lid.
If you prefer to transfer the gummies/capsules to a different container, then we recommend transferring them into an airtight container. We think that glass food storage containers work best.
No matter which products you’ve bought, you should always store both opened and unopened containers in a clean, cool, and dry place(between 55 °F and a maximum of 77 °F), such as a pantry, drawer, or cabinet. Try to keep it away from direct sunlight.
How far out are your expiration dates?
Our gummies/capsules expire two years from the date of being manufactured. We always recommend consuming them before the expiration date. With proper storage, our products should be completely safe for consumption before they expire.

- 20% off retail price on all orders

How much does a membership cost?
