How They Work
CBD is a hypnotic and sedative, as it activates rest, relaxation and sleep responses in the nervous system via cannabinoid receptors (CB1).
Hops and lavender contain active ingredients which assist CBD in promoting a relaxing and sleep inducing shift in brain activity.
Hops and lavender are natural hypnotics and sedatives too, due to their content of humulones, myrcene, linalool and linalyl acetate. These ingredients plug into the nervous system via GABA receptors, which helps shift it into a relaxed and restorative state which is ideal for promoting sleep, and inducing deep and restorative phases of (REM) sleep.
Our sleepy terpene blend also works with CBD to activate restful responses, plugging into the brain and nervous system also through GABA receptors.
With our unique combination of herbs, our nightcaps are a knockout.
