G’Night, sleep well – the natural remedy approach

GnightYou’ve come to the end of another productive day.  It’s time to slow down, to rest and relax… and you can’t.  Your head hits the pillow, your mind is still working, the anxiety about not getting enough sleep rolls in, tossing and turning, counting llamas (or the furry  creature of your choice), reciting a list of positive affirmations in your mind… despite all your best efforts it’s now dawn and you’ve experienced another night of poor sleep.

There are remedies.  Physicians often prescribe a pharmaceutical or may recommend an over-the-counter sleep product, but these medications can come with nasty side effects like, dizziness, daytime drowsiness, dry mouth or throat, burning or tingling in the hands, arms, feet, or legs, changes in appetite, constipation or diarrhea.  Some individuals have even complained of sleep walking, or worse yet, sleep shopping and not remembering it!  (Yes, I have a friend who did this. Several times.)  Murphy’s Natural Hemp has an all natural sleep remedy, specifically designed to help take you into a deeper, more restful sleep.

Our CBD sleep-aid product is the natural approach you’re looking for, without the side effects that typically come with using prescription medications or the over-the-counter quick fix.  Unlike oil-based products, Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sleep Aid, which contains CBD & Curcumin, 5-HTP, GABA, and Melatonin, is a water-soluble formula that is quickly and effectively absorbed by the body.

What’s in our product and how does it help you fall asleep?

sleep-aid-bottle-600x600-1CBD/Curcumin:

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of over 100 cannabinoids, that are found in the cannabis sativa plant.  It does not get the user “high.”  CBD has become increasingly popular over the last several years for treating patients with insomnia, pain, anxiety, IBS, arthritis and more.  It is believed that CBD works with the body’s own network of receptors, called the Endocannabinoid System or ECS, in assisting the natural processes that are responsible for calming the central nervous system, and reducing the stress response. (1)(2)

Curcumin, one of the main ingredients of turmeric powder, which is harvested from the turmeric plant by grinding up its root,  is recommended for its multiple health benefits, which appear to act primarily through its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms.  Ongoing research is proving the spice to be effective in patients with arthritis, fibromyalgia, IBS, and lupus.  By decreasing inflammation and pain in the body, a more restful sleep is possible.

5-HTP

5-Hydroxytryptophan, commonly known as 5-HTP is a naturally occurring amino acid that works in the brain and central nervous system to aid in the production of the chemicals serotonin and melatonin, two of the most important brain chemicals for regulating the sleep/wake cycle.  This means that supplementing 5-HTP will boost both serotonin and melatonin. (3)

GABA

Gamma aminobutyric acid, or GABA for short, is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a chemical neurotransmitter in your brain.  GABA blocks certain signals in the brain, decreasing activity, which as a result produces a calming effect with anxiety and stress, both contributors to sleepless nights. (4)

Melatonin

Finally, Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced within the body, that plays a major role in the body’s circadian rhythm or “body clock.” It is naturally produced in greater amounts as twilight approaches in order to help us fall asleep.  Produced and secreted by the pineal gland, Melatonin levels rise and fall between twilight and sunrise, with levels going up around 9 p.m., peaking during the night and staying high until dawn, finally dropping off around 9 a.m.  During the day, Melatonin hormone levels are almost non-existent.  Instead, other stimulating hormones, like cortisol, take over to keep us actively moving through the day.  Studies suggest this supplement helps reduce the time it takes to fall asleep.

Murphy’s Natural Hemp Sleep Tincture contains the perfect combination of  the ingredients that will assist you in getting a good night’s sleep.   You can take this product under your tongue, add it to water, or to another beverage, approximately 20 minutes before bedtime.  Our sleep tincture will help you get to sleep easily and aid you in getting a deeper sleep, leaving you more rested and prepared for the upcoming day.  Since its water soluble it will easily dissolve, entering your system faster and absorbing more effectively.  This water-soluble product also helps in avoiding the heavy feeling that oil-based products cause due to the large amounts of calories and fat content.  Our sleep tincture contains ZERO calories and ZERO grams of fat.  *Zero THC
