Chamomile and Hemp, Sleepy Best Buds

I’ve been an insomniac my whole life. I remember taking long walks as a teenager around my neighborhood in the little hours, just because I was awake and bored. It was kinda romantic. But as I got older, it became debilitating. 

Over the years, I tried every cure for insomnia. Most didn’t work. The only thing that made a dent was CBD, which is half the reason I started the farm. And while it’s helped, my quest for an even better night’s sleep continued.

It was researching hemp that brought me to one of the oldest sleep aids in civilization. Some hemp strains have a terpene called alpha-Bisabolol that is known for sedative, anti-anxiety effects. And that terpene appears in another plant, too. 

You know that tea we all associate with bedtime? Ancient people were using it the same way, which is why it’s known as Roman Chamomile. But we have science they didn’t, so now we know its active compound: alpha-Bisabolol.

So I thought, our tinctures are flowers infused in oil. What if we infused hemp and Chamomile flowers together?

So we took the Oregon Sweetgum hemp flowers that we grew last summer, which contain alpha-Bisabolol and have a sweet flowery taste on their own, and infused them along with organic Chamomile flowers, which come with a ton of the sleepy terpene. I knew it was working when I kept having to take naps after taste testing.

Speaking of the taste, Chamomile gives the tincture a floral honey flavor, in addition to its sedative, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety effects, so it’s our sweetest tincture yet, without adding any sweeteners.

I am so happy with the results and so excited to invite you to try our newest Limited Edition: Sweet Sleep. I hope it helps you as much as it’s helped me.
