According to the Mayo Clinic, lack of sleep can affect your immune system. Studies show that people who don’t get quality sleep or enough sleep are more likely to get sick after being exposed to a virus, such as a common cold virus. Lack of sleep can also affect how fast you recover if you do get sick. (1)
Many people take Melatonin to help with sleepless nights. But, for some, melatonin can cause some unpleasant side effects.
According to WebMD, Melatonin can cause some side effects including headache, short-term feelings of depression, daytime sleepiness, dizziness, stomach cramps, and irritability. (2)
At Organic Hemp Botanicals’ We listened, and now have a different kind of sleep capsule without melatonin. Instead, we use Passion Flower with Valerian Root and CBD.
What is Passion Flower? And how does it assist with sleepless nights?
Passion Flower; also known as passionflower, maypop, apricot vine, maracuja, water lemon, is a climbing vine that is native to the southeastern United States and Central and South America. (3)
Passion Flower has been used for 100’s of years by Houma, Cherokee, and other Native American tribes. They used passionflower for food, drink, and medicinal purposes. (4)
Passion Flower works with Valerian Root and CBD to assist with a good night’s sleep.
What is Valerian Root? And how does it assist with sleepless nights?
Valerian root is often referred to as “nature’s Valium.” In fact, this herb has been used since ancient times to promote tranquility and improve sleep. (5)
Valerian root also contains the antioxidants hesperidin and linarin, which appear to have sedative and sleep-enhancing properties. (6)
Our bodies have receptors to process CBD. This is called The Endocannabinoid System. Within the endocannabinoid system are cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors.
We offer two types of Sleep Capsules with Passion Flower and Valerian Root. One that is a Full-Spectrum CBD and one that is a CBD Isolate. (What is the difference between Full Spectrum and CBD Isolate?) Our Full Spectrum CBD has 0.3% THC, while our CBD Isolate is Lab Tested ZERO THC.
