Relax, Calm & Sleep: How To Choose And When To Use
Read Time: 5 minutes

Rest and relaxation aren’t merely luxuries—they’re essential for maintaining optimal physical and mental well-being. Getting enough sleep encourages internal repair and regeneration to take place unimpeded, ensuring that you are refreshed and able to function at the top of your game. Seeing how important sleep and being able to relax are to overall health, we have formulated high potency offerings that leverage the therapeutic properties of CBD and the benefits of several time-tested functional ingredients. Our Sleep Collection (with Sleep Capsules and Cannabinoid Sleep Gummies) is intentionally crafted to help combat restlessness and promote a more restorative night’s rest—while Relax Capsules and Calm CBD Gummies help you re-center and promote a non-drowsy sense of tranquility. While their sedative profiles may be similar, vital differences in their formulations define their primary focus—either as a sleep aid or calming agent, respectively. Before we explore these nuances, let’s take a closer look at the component that makes it all possible—CBD.

Cannabinoids: CBD & Beyond

Cannabinoids are a group of 100+ naturally occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis plants—like CBD (cannabidiol), THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), and CBN (cannabinol). CBD is the most dominant cannabinoid of the hemp plant and THC is the primary compound of most cannabis strains. However, cannabinoids aren’t solely produced by plants; the human body also generates these compounds, as well. When consuming cannabinoids such as CBD, it’s believed that your endocannabinoid system (or ECS) produces endocannabinoids that then bind to cannabinoid receptors throughout the body—setting in motion a wide variety of beneficial, non-intoxicating effects.

  A growing body of research indicates that CBD may aid in managing a host of ailments—from pain and inflammation to restlessness and stress. Our high potency formulations blend the beneficial properties of CBD with natural, benefit-forward, functional ingredients. As a result, we can offer you a comprehensive selection of top-quality remedies that are safe, effective, and affordable.

For Stress:

While all CBD helps promote a sense of relaxation for the body and mind, the primary difference between Relax Capsules and Sleep Capsules comes down to the active ingredients. CBD extract is fortified with secondary, functional components to produce varying ranges of sedation to address specific circumstances. 

Our full spectrum Relax Capsules are developed to promote maximum calm and help tame tension—without drowsiness, so they can be enjoyed any time of day. Each capsule contains 25mg of high potency CBD enhanced with the following functional ingredients:

Ashwagandha: An evergreen shrub indigenous to Africa and Asia, ashwagandha is historically used for stress. It’s presumed to contain chemicals that can quiet the mind, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and support immunity.

Chamomile: Chamomile has been used for centuries to calm both body and mind. To this day its healing properties are also used to reduce anxiety and to help treat inflammation of the skin, as well as digestive and respiratory tracts.

L-Theanine: Found in black tea, green tea, and certain mushrooms, L-Theanine is an amino acid believed to influence areas of the brain that help our bodies better cope with stress. 

Vitamin B6: B6 is frequently used to promote relaxation and aid in the treatment of conditions such as depression, heart disease, and diabetes.

Our CBD Calm Gummies, much like the Relax Capsules, are excellent in helping to find your center any time of day—only they’re packed with the sweet-tart flavor of huckleberry! These full spectrum gummies are infused with the CBD you know and trust, naturally derived fruit flavor, ashwagandha, and L-Theanine.

For Sleep:

Unlike Relax Capsules and Calm CBD Gummies, crafted to encourage a sense of calm without drowsiness, Sleep Capsules are meant to help you fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up clear-minded and replenished. Sleep Capsules pair a powerful blend of full spectrum cannabinoids (CBD, CBG & CBN) with functional ingredients that target restlessness, encourage more restorative rest, and enhance any nightly routine. In addition to CBD, each capsule contains:

CBG: One of many cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, cannabigerol appears to offer similar benefits as CBD—such as alleviating pain and inflammation, providing immune support, and boosting mood. 

CBN: Cannabinol is another robust cannabinoid that’s best known for helping to improve sleep, ease pain, reduce nausea, fight infection and act as an antibiotic.

Passion Flower: Widely considered a natural sedative, passion flower has long been used to promote restful sleep and a sense of serenity.

Organic Lemon Balm: The soothing properties of lemon balm have historically been used to help alleviate stress and anxiety, ease indigestion, improve appetite, as well as support restorative sleep, for starters.

Sleep + Melatonin Capsules provide an extra-strength serving for those who need it most. This hard-working sleep aid shares the same ingredients as our Sleep Capsules, with the addition of melatonin—a chemical compound the body produces at night. Known as the “sleep hormone,” melatonin plays an integral part in evening restoration—as well as in maintaining your circadian rhythm. These are perfect for anyone looking to overcome jet lag, combat restlessness, or reset their sleep cycle.

Want a good night’s sleep and a burst of sweet, all-natural flavor? Our Cannabinoid Sleep Gummies unite all the tried and true ingredients of our Sleep Capsules with the soothing essence of chamomile and a tropical twist of lemon mango!

When To Take Each

Before consuming any CBD products, it’s important to identify the symptoms you wish to address. For a non-drowsy way to help combat symptoms of stress and anxiety, Relax Capsules or Calm CBD Gummies are your best bet—with functional ingredients (like chamomile, ashwagandha, and L-Theanine) offering the soothing properties that encourage a sense of calm, without compromising energy or focus.
