The Sky Wellness “Sleep” Line
We’ve all been there: we know that we’re tired, but once we’re in bed, we just can’t stop tossing and turning. Or, we fall asleep relatively easily, only to find ourselves waking up randomly throughout the night for no apparent reason. Whatever the cause may be behind disrupted sleep, it’s an issue that’s worth looking into for the sake of our overall health. And, if you struggle with difficulty sleeping, you’re not alone: over 70% of Americans say that they have trouble sleeping at least one night out of the month.
The good news is that you don’t have to suffer. There are all kinds of ways to improve your sleep, and some of the most effective ones come from holistic, plant-based sources. At Sky Wellness, we’ve combined the best that mother nature has to offer to deliver nothing but the finest natural sleep formulas, which all contain our signature top-shelf CBD.
CBD and Sleep: What Can Hemp Provide?
The hemp plant has long been researched for its many properties, which come largely from its cannabinoids, that attach to cannabinoid receptors in each system of the body to promote balance and proper equilibrium. Cannabinoid receptors in the nervous system control many aspects of our sleep, including our internal clock, our cortisol levels, and even our physical comfort levels.
Studies have shown that the hemp plant can be helpful in the sleep department, by supporting neurotransmitters in the brain that all play a role in our body’s sleep response. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the dominant compound of the hemp plant, which has been shown repeatedly to offer these valuable properties. However, there is another cannabinoid in the hemp plant called cannabinol (CBN) that is now showing similar promise. Pairing them together may offer enhanced effectiveness due to the synergistic relationship between all of the active compounds in hemp.
At Sky Wellness, we are committed to producing formulas using the most advanced technology and botanical research that we have access to. Our “Sleep” Line offers four distinctive formulas that each contain the same three active ingredients: CBD (cannabidiol), CBN (cannabinol), and melatonin (a naturally occurring hormone that regulates our sleep cycle).
These ingredients work together to synergistically help one another accomplish the main goal: to help you sleep better at night. All Sky Wellness formulas are made to the highest standard possible with the perfect CBD dosage for sleep in mind. Here is a little breakdown on what all of our products contain:
- Strict third-party lab testing protocol
- Naturally sourced, clean ingredients
- Organic hemp plant material
- Accurate milligram strengths
- Clear instructions on packaging
- Compliance with federal law
Our CBD Sleep Softgels come in two quantities, and this 5-pack is the perfect way to introduce yourself to the effects of these naturally occurring compounds without committing to a full bottle, just yet. A single capsule provides you with 25 milligrams of CBD combined with CBN and melatonin, so that one should be all you need at night. Formulated to be gentle on the stomach, these capsules can be taken right before bedtime, as the effects peak in about 1 hour and can last for up to 8 hrs.
If you find that our CBD Softgels are providing you with the response you were hoping for, you can get your hands on our 30-count bottle and enjoy a full month’s supply at a great price. It’s the same formula, but it will last you a whole lot longer. Many people like to keep a full bottle handy even if they only have occasional sleep disturbances.
A great alternative to our softgel formula is our CBD Sleep Oil Drops, which combine the same ratio of active ingredients but in a different delivery method. Rather than consuming a capsule, you can simply pour a dropper of oil below your tongue and hold it there for a minute or so before swallowing. The effects are faster-acting and slightly more potent (due to the method of consumption), and last for about 4 hours rather than 8. The formula we’ve created is ultra-clean, consisting purely of hemp extract and MCT oil, derived from coconuts. The 500mg strength is great for beginners, offering milder effects than our other Drops formula.
Last but not least is our 1000mg Sleep Oil Drops formula, which contains twice the potency level as the former, for more advanced needs. This works out to about 33 milligrams of hemp extract per dose, plus additional servings of CBN and melatonin to round out its sleep-enhancing properties. This is a great starting CBD dosage for sleep. Perfect for nightly use and still capable of delivering overall gentle effects, it can be taken just like the other Drops formula, about 30 minutes prior to going to bed for the best results.
Choosing the Perfect “Sleep” Formula for Your Nightly Needs
Maybe you’re wondering which is better for your sleep-related needs: softgels or drops? Well, let us help you figure that out.
- CBD Sleep Oil Drops: Drops are a great choice if you are looking for something that “kicks in” more quickly and feels a bit more potent. Because the effects typically wear off after about 4 hours, you shouldn’t still feel the compounds in action when you wake up the next morning.
- CBD Sleep Softgels: CBD softgels take a longer time to take effect, so you’ll need to plan your serving ahead of time with a little more thought. The effects can last through the duration of the night, and they are a bit subtler than tinctures. That being said, many consumers have given the feedback that ingestible hemp products like softgels offer a bit stronger of a mellowing sensation throughout the body.
Keep in mind these products can be taken together after two consecutive weeks (to be safe) of experimenting with one of these four formulas. Many people take a softgel along with a dropper of oil for stronger effects. Also, none of these four products will interfere with an established daily routine with another CBD product.
The Bottom Line: If sleep is only one of your daily needs, we recommend that you check out our other product lines as well, such as our “Focus,” “Relief”, and “Relax” lines, which all also contain pure ingredients and generous servings of carefully extracted, lab-tested hemp.
