This formulation is especially made to help you settle down at the end of a long day and rest deeply. Quality sleep is something many of us struggle with. When it comes to cannabinoids, many people turn to high THC indica strains. However, THC actually inhibits your ability to reach REM sleep (the sleep cycle that is most restorative). CBD does not interrupt this sleep cycle, and CBN is becoming more and more well researched for its sedative quality. We combine 1000mg of CBD and 200mg of CBN which is 35mg of CBD and 7mg of CBN per mL dose. A lot of the studies on CBN that showed potential for use as a sleep aid used only a 5mg dosage. We combine these fantastic and relaxing cannabinoids with Myrcene and Linalool, both of which are well known for their restorative properties. Beta-caryophyllene and Black Pepper Extract compound these benefits and exponentially increase the potency of the cannabinoids in our tincture.
Cannabinol: This cannabinoid is formed from oxidized THC. Little to no psychoactive effect has been reported from its use. Aside from its primary use of relaxation and rest, CBN is also very good for reducing physical discomfort and can help one wake up feeling much more refreshed. What better combination is there than to have a deep restorative sleep with no grogginess when you wake? Nothing is better for the body and mind than a deep restful sleep, and CBN can help prime the body to reach such a state.

Black Pepper CO2 Extract: The black pepper is this formulation will help you relax and ease stress and worry. It is also going to vastly amplify the benefits of the cannabinoids. This is going to enhance the sedating effects and create synergy in our formulation.
Our Black Pepper Extract contains Piperine which is often used to aid in the absorption of pharmaceuticals and natural active ingredients like Curcumin, which some studies claim has increased absorption by 2000%. We believe Piperine greatly aids in the absorption of CBD. Guineensine is another active component of black pepper which has been found to be an endocannabinoid reuptake inhibiter. This is one of the same therapeutic mechanisms of action as CBD, making it a ‘Cannabimimetic’. It therefore has potential to greatly extend the benefits of CBD. The volatile oil content (essential oils) which makes up 34% of our CO2 extract consists of β-Caryophyllene and Myrcene, two of the most therapeutic terpenes well researched.
