Powered by patented ultra-low radio frequency energy (ulRFE®) technology, Hapbee delivers low-power electromagnetic signals designed to produce sensations such as Happy, Alert, Focus, Relax, and others. The Company has offices in Montreal, Vancouver, Seattle and Phoenix.
Hapbee blends are derived from the distinct magnetic signatures of compounds like caffeine, nicotine and melatonin to deliver sensations such as Happy, Alert, Focus, Relax, Calm and Sleep without the side-effects or chemical dependencies that might otherwise result from the substances.
