Can you tell me the story of how you learned about CBN?

D.A:

1 year ago, Rich and I were driving back to our homes in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Rich started sharing about a new minor cannabinoid (CBN) he had been recently working on formulating.

He was working on perfecting his CBN tincture with friends and family that were exploring CBN as a natural alternative to Ambien.

Once I heard these testimonials, I thought it was too good to be true. So I asked him to try it. I was blown away with how great it worked!

The best thing about CBN for me, was how it doesn’t have any psychotropic effects. We started chatting more about how life changing this natural sleep aid could be for others and decided to look into starting a hemp-derived, CBN sleep aid.

How did Slumber CBN get started?

R.B:

A year ago, when things were just getting started, there weren’t any CBN products on the market. Our lab team worked for many months to develop a powerful and proprietary CBN blend, for the launch of Slumber’s signature CBN formulation.

From launch to present, we have always focused on following three key pillars to our business: efficacy, quality, and transparency.

We guarantee the highest quality CBN and ingredients, so we have 3rd parties run a Certificate of Analysis on every batch. (AN: This COA is always available on our website under Lab Results).

CBN is a very rare and expensive cannabinoid, and we pack CBN in the strongest dose into all of our products.

What makes your business unique?

D.A:

What makes our product particularly unique, is the fact that it is a powerful, all-natural, plant based product that actually works. Unlike many other CBD or “natural” sleep aid products out there, we don’t put any synthetic hormones like melatonin in our products.

Furthermore our basic formulation flagship contains high quality terpenes (Lavender and Beta Caryophyllene), which interacts harmoniously with the endocannabinoid system to make the CBN’s sensitive effect work more quickly.

We have put in a lot of investment in legal support, research and development, to make sure we have the best CBN sleep aid on the market.

How would you compare CBN to other popular cannabinoids/hemp-derived products?

D.A:

I always say that CBN is the gold of cannabinoids!

CBN is found in very small quantities in the plant, which makes it very unique, very rare, and very expensive! That is one of the reasons why it is less known than more popular cannabinoids such as CBD (Cannabidiol), THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBG (Cannabigerol), that are found in higher quantities in the plant.

CBN also interacts with the Endocannabinoid system (ECS) differently than other cannabinoids. CBN is specifically recognized to induce a sleepy/sedative effect, without producing any psychotropic effects.

What is the mission and vision of Slumber CBN?

R.B:

30% of the American’s report some type of sleeping issue.

Whether someone is having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, Slumber is dedicated to providing people with a natural sleep aid that works.

Our mission at Slumber is simple: Bring people the first, powerful, quality CBN sleep aid. As we all know, a good day starts with a good night.  

We have an ambition to continue to launch a diversified product line, to help our customers enhance their sleep experience.

If you had one wish to make for Slumber CBN what would that be?

R.B:

For Slumber CBN to be THE go-to product for sleeping issues.

D.A:

A lot of our early early adopters have shared life changing testimonials with us. We hear many stories about people quitting addictive pharma-sleep aids and replacing it with Slumber. We know quality sleep is important to everyone, so we are thrilled to hear life changing stories. We hope the word keeps spreading about Slumber, so others can give CBN a try!
