Melatonin is a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain and then released into the bloodstream. It is a central part of the body’s sleep-wake cycle. Its production increases with evening darkness, promoting healthy ZZZs and helping to orient our circadian rhythm. The hormone can also be produced externally, and is a common addition to sleep promoting supplements, like our Good Night CBD Capsules.
What is the source of our melatonin?
Our plant-sourced Melatonin is derived from berries.
Why 2mg of melatonin in each capsule?
We were thoughtful when we formulated our Good Night Capsules and took a research-backed approach to the amount of melatonin the product contains. There is a lot of data suggesting taking more than 5 mg of melatonin for the average person could result in grogginess and could even have the opposite effect and cause sleeplessness. At 2mg of melatonin, you can start with one capsule and see if you need to add a second one to your nightly routine.
How does CBD help with sleep?
While there are still many mysteries about how the human body functions, there is one thing we know for sure - our bodies need sleep (and lots of it). Because CBD oil works with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating balance and homeostasis, it can play a role in getting your sleep back on track. CBD promotes a calm mind and relaxes the body, readying it for sleep.
