Well, to put it lightly, 2020 has been a whirlwind. How do you cope with the series of curveball challenges and the rapid pace to which we’ve all had to adapt?
Meditation, yoga, intense workouts, getting out in nature, walking the dog excessively, binging a Netflix series? Those all seem to be popular go-to’s.
But, there are also natural herbs and compounds that are commonly used to enhance relaxation and help maintain a calm and balanced mind throughout the day.
Here are the top five natural relaxers we think everyone should know about and why we’ve mixed these ingredients with CBD.
#1 – GABA
Gamma-Aminobutyric acid, or GABA, is a neurotransmitter that tells the brain and body to slow down and creates a calm, balanced mood. GABA is naturally produced in the body, but it can also be found in supplements and some foods, like lentils, walnuts and spinach.
#2 – 5-HTP
It sounds more like a man-made chemical, but 5-HTP is actually an amino acid that is naturally made in the body and used to produce serotonin. Serotonin is known as the “feel-good” hormone. For most, it’s associated with happiness, elevated and stable moods or feelings of well-being. 5-HTP is also a common ingredient in supplements designed to promote relaxation.
#3 – L-Theanine
L-Theanine is an amino acid that’s naturally found in green and black tea. It’s also a common staple in supplements designed for mood-boosting.
#4 – Skullcap
Skullcup is an herb found in North America that’s been used for centuries by Native Americans and herbalists. But, in today’s world, it’s most commonly seen when perusing the ever-growing tea aisle in the grocery store. It’s usually blended with other herbs that are designed to create a sense of calm.
#5 – Rose
This one might surprise you. In the U.S., we don’t typically think of rose as something you’d consume. Even though roses can be edible and are sometimes found in herbal tea blends, when it comes to relaxation, you might be more familiar with rose in the form of essential oil or rose water. Both the oil and water are often found in bath bombs or skin products.
These five natural relaxers are sometimes found as stand-alone supplements or they’re blended together.
We blended all five ingredients with CBD in our Relax tincture. Here’s why.
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid. Like other cannabinoids, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the body, which is thought to regulate several essential body processes, including memory formation and possibly control of emotion.
We believe in tapping all of nature’s resources to support well-being and enhance our life. So, we did something cool and combined these five ingredients with hemp-derived CBD.
With each serving of our fast-acting Relax tincture, there is 10 milligrams of CBD derived from broad spectrum hemp oil along with 5-HTP and a proprietary blend of GABA, L-theanine, skullcap and rose flower oil.
And, we made the tincture 5x more effective than traditional hemp tinctures.
All Wana Wellness tinctures are 5x more effective than other hemp tinctures on the market, and that’s because of the bioavailability of the CBD. That means there’s a greater ability for the body to absorb the CBD in each serving because of the quality of the product and the way it’s formulated through nanoemulsion technology. Nanoemulsion technology is an advanced way to formulate oil-based compounds, like CBD, and make them more compatible with water so the compounds can enter our bodies more easily.
So, when choosing a CBD product, it’s not always about the CBD milligrams per serving, but more about the bioavailability of those milligrams and whether there are added benefits of other natural compounds or herbs.
Because the Relax tincture acts within 5-15 minutes of taking a serving, many customers reach for Relax when an immediate use is needed. Think about before a high-stakes presentation at work or a particularly challenging day of juggling the roles of stay-at-home parent and work-from-home employee. Relax can be used daily or just when you need it.
