Herbal Tea and Water Soluble CBD for Better Sleep
More than 35 percent of Americans are sleep deprived, meaning that they get less than 7 hours of sleep per night. And 1 in 20 has fallen asleep behind the wheel in the past month! Whether it’s due to work related stress, family issues, or just…life, it’s clear that many of us could benefit from more, high-quality sleep.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends adults get at least 7 hours of sleep per night. Sleeping is a vital process that helps both our body and mind to recover from the previous day:
Knowing how important sleep is for the body, it’s important to have a consistent nighttime routine, which can signal to your brain that sleep is on its way, and ease you into a good night’s rest.
Some people have rituals such as meditation, reading, or simply no-screen time for the hour leading up to bedtime. Our favorite routine is to make a cup of caffeine free herbal tea infused with CBD.
One of the most popular caffeine free herbal teas is Chamomile tea. What makes chamomile great for the evening is that it also contains a natural compound called apigenin that has a mild tranquilizing effect and has been shown to reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound that interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system—a system that affects stress, anxiety, pain, and of course, sleep. CBD has been shown to reduce cortisol, a stress hormone, which in turn helps promote better sleep.
When you combine the benefits of CBD with Chamomile tea, you get the perfect recipe for a good night’s sleep. However, most CBD products on the market are oil-based, and don’t dissolve in water. In fact, the majority of any oil-based CBD you add into a drink won’t even get absorbed by your body!
Unlike CBD oil, Mind Unwind is a water soluble CBD elixir that fully dissolves into any beverage. It is also absorbed up to 5 times faster than CBD oil, which means that you don’t have to lay in bed waiting for the effects to kick in as you try to fall asleep!
In addition to water soluble CBD, Mind Unwind is also infused with two other powerful and synergistic ingredients: Lion’s Mane mushroom extract and L-theanine, both of which are known to reduce stress, improve sleep, and even improve brain function. Though Mind Unwind can be used at any time of the day to relieve anxiety and clear the mind, it's most popular for helping people wind down in the evening before bedtime.
If you are someone who has trouble falling asleep at night, the combination of Mind Unwind + Chamomile tea might be the perfect night-time ritual for a good night’s sleep. Try it for yourself, you won’t regret it!
