Sleepless nights, groggy mornings and frayed nerves. Sounds familiar? You’re probably suffering from a lack of sleep.
Our sleep cycle has a huge effect on our mood, health and overall wellbeing. Starting the day with too little sleep can have knock on effects for our energy levels, diet and relationships.
Many people turn to prescription drugs or sleeping pills to remedy this. But these tend to work against your body’s natural rhythms, creating more problems than they solve. Better is to work with the body. Which is where the hormone melatonin comes in. A natural way to get your sleep rhythm back on track, our Mani Drops with Melatonin work by combining the body’s natural sleep hormone with the relaxing effect of CBD. Read on to learn why these two are a match made in heaven.
What is Melatonin?
Melatonin plays a major role in establishing a balance in our sleep-wake cycle. Melatonin is a hormone produced in the pineal gland (or epiphysis). The daily rhythm of the body is directly connected to the amount of melatonin that the body produces on its own.
Melatonin levels naturally drop with the morning light, and increase as the sun begins to set. Sufficient exposure to daylight is key to establishing a healthy and habitual sleep pattern. However, with the modern onslaught of time indoors, and artificial blue light from electronic devices, our process of naturally creating melatonin is regularly challenged.

CBD and melatonin
While CBD doesn’t induce sleep, it does affect how our body receives sleep. Especially in times of emotional and physical stress, CBD works with the endocannabinoid system which balances your body and helps it to relax when stressed. CBD also prevents overexcitability of the brain’s nerve cells. By improving the quality of our bodily processes, CBD supports the relaxation of body, mind and soul – exactly what we need for a good night sleep.
Melatonin, on the other hand, has a primarily sleep-inducing effect. It is also referred to as the sleep hormone. By increasing the concentration of this hormone in the blood, a resting phase in the body can be initiated.
When combined, however: these two ingredients amplify our capacity for sleeping through the night making tossing and turning a thing of the past.
Broad Spectrum CBD:
Broad Spectrum CBD has all our favorite cannabinoids and terpenes, just like Full Spectrum CBD – but without the trace amounts of THC.
As mentioned above, melatonin is a sleep hormone that is naturally produced by our body. Once the sun sets, our body produces melatonin which makes us sleepy and tired, in preparation for a full night’s rest.
Lecithin (Soy) NON-GMO :
Liposomes are made of lecithin – just like the membranes of our body cells are. Our body recognizes the liposomes as good stuff and eventually merges them with our own body cells. This allows for the active substances (in this case, melatonin and CBD) to be released, seamlessly into the body.
Liposomes are not themselves active substances, rather, they function as transporters of desired nutrients that would otherwise be destroyed by the digestive system. Liposomes are microscopic, encapsulating structures that act as a barrier with active ingredients. This helps to deliver the CBD and melatonin more effectively.
Why is this a good thing? A lot of active ingredients get deteriorated by our digestive enzymes. Liposomes protect valuable substances from digestive enzymes and release them while they are active so they may be used as intended. This increases the bioavailability by 3x the rate of normal absorption. Our Mani Drops with Melatonin are stronger, faster and more efficient.
Will Mani Drops work for me?
Timing is the key word when it comes to our Mani Drops – the perfect time to take them is roughly 15-20 minutes before going to bed. Just dissolve them in a beverage of your choice, and drink it as you ease into your nightly routine.
If you develop a tolerance to the suggested dosage after a while of using our Mani Drops with Melatonin, there is no need to worry.ust pause usage for about one week, so the body can absorb the cannabinoids (CBD) from the fat tissues, where CBD is stored for ready employment.
The wrap up:
Melatonin can support a more restorative sleep. Despite external stressors that can’t be controlled like blue light and our sleeping environment, our Mani Drops with Melatonin make drifting off to sleep that bit easier.
