When we announced our partnership with MoreBetter Ltd (Releaf App™) earlier this year, we knew the arrangement could help our customers track their CBD usage and monitor their progress. We also knew this partnership could help us gain valuable insight into the experiences of people using CBDistillery® products for relaxation, relief after physical activity, and better sleep.
A few months ago, CBDistillery® and Releaf App™ announced one of our first joint ventures, a sleep study involving hundreds of volunteers and our CBN (cannabinol) plus CBD tincture oil. We are thrilled to reveal the findings of this 2021 study, which evaluated the effects of CBN and CBD on various components of sleep.
As a proud leader of the #CBDMOVEMENT™, our organization (Balanced Health Botanicals) is firmly committed to providing the resources consumers need to make informed decisions about CBD and other hemp-sourced cannabinoids. That devotion to providing consumer access to educational resources, the latest research, and data-backed product insights made a partnership with Releaf App (MoreBetter) a natural fit.1
Releaf is the highest-ranking mobile app available for cannabis users. The app helps CBD users track their progress and monitor incremental changes for specific concerns in different areas of their bodies. As the Releaf App™ helps CBD users determine which brands, product types, and serving sizes produce the best results for their needs, every session recorded helps advance cannabinoid research.2
CBD (cannabidiol) is the most abundant of more than 100 cannabinoids found in the oil extracted from the stalks, stems, and flowers of industrial hemp plants. The rest, the minor cannabinoids, are found in trace amounts. While many CBD users were intrigued by the research detailing how some of those minor cannabinoids might impact their bodies, CBD products featuring enhanced levels of minor cannabinoids were all but impossible to find.
Today, innovative companies like CBDistillery® are meeting and exceeding consumer expectations by offering a range of CBD products enhanced with higher levels of minor cannabinoids and other functional ingredients. CBDistillery® was one of the first, if not the first, companies to introduce a range of CBD products enhanced with CBG (cannabigerol) and CBN (cannabinol) isolate. Although numerous sources detail the possible benefits of CBN for sleep and relaxation, we wanted consumer data on how our 600mg Sleep Synergy CBN + CBD Oil Tincture can help promote a better night’s sleep.
Our 2021 sleep study helped us collect potentially groundbreaking, game-changing data about the impact of fine-tuning the cannabinoid ratios of hemp-derived CBD products. During the first week of the study, participants did not use CBN. Answers to questions about sleep and sleep quality during that time established a baseline, a starting point. The volunteers were then asked to answer the same questions while using our 600mg CBN + CBD Oil Tincture for the remaining 23 days of the study.
According to the results of the sleep study conducted by CBDistillery® with MoreBetter (Releaf App™), an impressive 81% of our sleep study participants said they were (somewhat to definitely) likely to continue using the 600mg Sleep Synergy CBN + CBD Oil Tincture by CBDistillery® after the study ended. After analyzing the data, it’s easy to see why.
Most adults need at least 6-7 hours of uninterrupted sleep to wake feeling energized, refreshed, and alert. Yet statistics confirm that up to 70 percent of the adult population report sleep issues at least once each week.3 Some turn to prescription and over-the-counter sleep aids; others prefer holistic treatments or herbal remedies. The results of our 2021 sleep study with MoreBetter (Releaf App™) reveal that 72% of participants agree (somewhat to definitely) that the 600mg Sleep Synergy CBN + CBD Oil Tincture by CBDistillery® performed better than any other sleep aid they’ve previously tried.
Daytime fatigue and frequent waking during the night are generally considered signs of poor sleep quality. Symptoms can also include spending less than 85% of your time in bed asleep, sleeplessness for more than 20 minutes after waking during the night, difficulty concentrating, and food cravings.4 If this list seems far too familiar, you might find it helpful to know that 81% of the CBDistillery® sleep study volunteers participating through Releaf said they (somewhat to definitely) agreed they achieved more quality sleep when using the 600mg Sleep Synergy CBN+CBD Oil Tincture by CBDistillery®.
In sleep study terms, sleep duration means the number of hours spent in bed sleeping. When your usual routine gives you just enough time in bed to meet your minimum sleep requirements, the time you spend awake after turning out the lights, your sleep latency, can cut your sleep duration short.5 When that happens, you may not be getting enough sleep to wake feeling rested. According to the results of our 2021 sleep study, participants reported sleeping an average of 30-40 minutes longer when using our 600mg Sleep Synergy CBN + CBD Oil Tincture, and most found it easier to stay asleep.
Difficulty falling asleep is not the only possible cause of morning fatigue. Even people getting more than enough sleep can wake feeling tired or groggy. While there are many possible causes of unrefreshing sleep, 61% of our sleep study volunteers responding through the Releaf App™ by MoreBetter, said they felt refreshed in the morning after using the 600mg Sleep Synergy CBN + CBD Oil Tincture by CBDistillery®. At the conclusion of our sleep study, 82% said they were (somewhat to definitely) likely to recommend the product to others.
