Sleep, Recovery, and Performance
”Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.” – Thomas Dekker
Sleep is the foundation of keeping your body and mind healthy. Unfortunately, many of us are not able to reap the rewards of consistent and quality sleep. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that roughly 1 in every 3 Americans get less than the recommended amount of sleep every night. This is alarming because a consistent lack of sleep (less than 7 hours per night) is directly linked with many chronic diseases and conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and depression. According to the Division of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School, they discovered that sleep plays a critical role in immune function, metabolism, memory, learning, and other vital functions. Even a single night of poor sleep can contribute to motor vehicle accidents, mistakes at work, and overall mental fatigue. This is a major health issue in the United States, but many of us are trying to tackle it the wrong way.
Understanding Sleep Quality
Getting good sleep isn’t only about the total hours. It’s just as important to get good quality sleep, preferably on a regular schedule, in order to wake up feeling rested and energized to take on the day. Stress and anxiety are two major factors that lead to disrupting your sleep cycle. To combat these, many people use sleep aids such as melatonin or other medications. These come with a range of side effects according to the Mayo Clinic, such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, a severe allergic reaction, and prolonged drowsiness. To a lot of people the side-effects deter them completely. For those that do use these type of sleep aids, many continue to wake up feeling groggy and think it’s because the effects of the sleep aid just haven’t worn off yet, but in fact, it’s because they never reach the deep REM stage of sleep that their body and mind needs.
Our Natural Solution
It’s no secret that Hemp Extract, commonly referred to as CBD oil, has had remarkable effects on consumer’s sleep behavior. One study cited in The Permanente Journal showed that CBD helped 79.2% of their patients reduce anxiety and it improved the patient’s sleep in 66.7% of their participants. We knew hemp extract oil on its own was effective, but we also knew we could make it better.
We began formulating our Rest Hemp Extract Oil “Sign Off” by studying the terpene profiles of the most popular strains of cannabis used for their sleepy and sedative effects. The terpenes that were consistent across those strains were Myrcene, Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool, Ocimene, Humulene, and a few others in trace amounts. We extracted those exact terpenes from commonly known plants like lavender, chamomile, hops, lemongrass, ho wood, orange, pine, and jasmine. We then recreated the terpene profiles at the levels in which they were present in the strains of cannabis and infused them into our Hemp Extract Oil. The effects were amazing, but we weren’t finished there. We then infused an additional amount of cannabinol (CBN) into the blend. CBN is known for its sedative properties and, when combined with the full plant hemp extract oil and botanical terpene extracts, lulls you into a deep and relaxing slumber.
It’s Time to Sign Off
We know all of the amazing ingredients used in our Sign Off hemp oil for rest would all be for nothing if it wasn’t enjoyable to take.
