Staying AsleepSome folks have no trouble falling asleep, it's the staying asleep that's tricky. One very loyal customer, Lisa* has ordered many times, and I finally asked her if she would share how our CBD honey is helping:
"I love your honey. I used to sleep about three hours maximum per night, but since I started taking your honey, I sleep about seven hours! Even my husband, who doesn't use CBD, told me to continue to buy it because he's sleeping better. He's not waking up with me at 3am with the TV on, so he sleeps better too! I just bought some more of your honey to share with my daughter"
Falling AsleepOne special customer Pat, is the grandma of our General Manager, Colleen. Pat has had trouble falling asleep for years, and at the age of 91 has tried just about everything except CBD. Colleen sent her some samples to try, and after much resistance, tried some in her tea one afternoon. Colleen had a chat with her grandma a few days ago:
Colleen: Gram, would you say the honey works?
Gram: OH MY YES!
Colleen: What does it do?
Gram: I don't feel anything, but I can finally fall asleep when I lay down. I take a spoonful at bedtime and wash it down with Ensure. It works every time!
How does CBD help with sleep?
Joseph Maroon, M.D., a clinical professor and neurosurgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center who has researched the effect of cannabis on the brain, says that CBD has properties that could help some people sleep better. Most notably, he says, it appears to ease anxiety and pain, both of which can make it harder to fall asleep or stay asleep.
Some other research hints that CBD may also affect sleep directly, by interacting with receptors in the brain that govern the body’s daily sleep/wake cycles, according to a 2017 review of sleep and cannabis in the journal Current Psychiatry Reports.
Our infused honey selections are designed to easily incorporate our CBD superfood into your daily regime and are available in a variety of flavors. Taking any of these varieties on a daily basis can assist with balancing your endocannabinoid system.
CBD For Anxiety
Our Wellness selections pair our CBD honey with specific plant terpenes that target diseases, illness, and conditions. Terpenes such as linalool from lavender and geraniol from rose oil have been infused into our BEE Chill CBD infused honey to specifically address anxiety and mood. Perhaps those experiencing difficulty sleeping should start with BEE Chill, as Dr. Maroon mentions above, this is a component of falling and staying asleep.
CBD For Inflammation
Are muscles or body aches disrupting your sleeping patterns? Our BEE Fluid CBD infused honey is formulated to address inflammation and pain, therefore we use flavonoids and specific terpenes such as myrcene found in thyme, among many others, to deliver a powerful anti-inflammatory boost.
