CBD Softgels: for Sleep, Focus and More
Today we’re going to cover the mind and body benefits of our Premium Hemp Sotfgels (with Curcumin) as well as the practical benefits that make this our most popular product.*
Our Premium softgels are a versatile, easy to use product that supports both your mental and physical health because of how CBD (cannabidiol) and the other cannabinoids you get in our Broad Spectrum formula interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). For more information on how this works, check out our blog post here. Put simply, the ECS keeps your body’s functions balanced and running smoothly and CBD supports the ECS. What’s interesting about this is that the same product that’s used to help you sleep at night also helps you maintain focus when you need to be on your A-game. Again, this is because CBD supports your body’s natural balance. Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common reasons people use our softgels.
Maintains healthy sleep cycles. We know sleep is a big deal. I am personally a bit obsessed with getting enough sleep since my sleep was hijacked for quite some time by my baby. Only now that she is almost 2.5 years old am I starting to get back to normal. I’m so used to sleeping poorly that my circadian rhythms are really thrown off. Anyway, many people (including me) use CBD to help them get to sleep. The ECS and our own circadian rhythms are believed to be closely connected. What’s important to know is that there is actually no evidence that CBD will make you tired, but it may make you feel more relaxed and balance your sleep cycle because of how CBD helps balance the endocannabinoid system. It doesn’t work for everyone, but if it does, it’s a treasure because it’s not addictive and doesn’t make you groggy.
Supports calm/focus. A lot of people turn to caffeine for that jolt of focus and I’m not going to lie, it’s a high you’re not going to get from CBD (since CBD is not a high or a low). But consider that you may also feel more anxious, more stressed and more jittery and the high will be followed by a crash. For a more balanced approach, I turn to CBD. Again, the same softgel I take at night for sleep, I also take in the morning for the calm/focus I need. When I first learned about CBD I remembered thinking it was odd that people take it with their morning coffee because I thought it was a “downer”. Not so. Again, it works with the ECS to support your body's balance.
Helps manage stress and anxiety. CBD is thought to interact with the receptors in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The exact way CBD affects the receptors in the brain isn’t fully understood, but may alter the serotonin signals. More research is needed. That said, serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in your mental health. Low serotonin levels are commonly associated with people who have depression and not having enough of it may also cause anxiety.
Anti-Inflammatory & Antioxidant. Our softgels contain 10 mg of Curcumin, which is a curcuminoid that is derived from the turmeric plant. Curcumin assists your body in producing extra antioxidant enzymes and has powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Studies show that anything that can help fight chronic inflammation is of potential importance in preventing and even treating major diseases (e.g. heart disease, Alzheimer’s). The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties make the CBD/curcumin combo an excellent support system for heart health and recovery from strenuous activity. Many make this part of their daily routine to recover quickly from their workout routine.
Our softgels are made with Broad Spectrum CBD so you’re getting other cannabinoids in addition to the CBD. Our softgels are also highly bioavailable. Mama’s Farmacy softgels are made with nanoemulsion water-soluble technology that increases bioavailability (absorption by the body) up to 200% so your body can actually use the CBD.
From a practical perspective, people love them because they are small and easy to swallow. You’re not going to dread taking them. You’re always going to get 25 mg of CBD and 10 mg of curcumin per softgel so you have a predictable impact. They are priced competitively - check it out for yourself!
Finally, Mama’s Farmacy softgels are made with hemp organically-grown in the USA and manufactured in a facility that’s GMP certified by the FDA.
How much should I take?
Dosage varies by your body chemistry, so generally we advise to start with a lower dose and work up from there, ultimately taking 1-4 capsules per day.
In summary, our softgels just may be your go-to CBD product for all-around mental and physical support. A lot more research is needed with controlled experiments to validate what we believe to be true and help shed light on exactly how CBD works.
