The new products consist of two formulations to offer multiple solutions to a wide range of consumers: Sleep Cloudberry, with 5mg of THC, 1mg of CBN, and 1mg of CBD, along with CBNRelief Lychee, with 1mg of THC, 2mg of CBN, and 3mg of CBD.

Also known as Cannabinol, CBN has long been touted as a sleep aid, and the research is backing those claims up.1 With sleep playing such a huge part in our physiological and mental wellbeing, and nearly 50 million people in the U.S. suffering from insomnia,² it's no surprise this cannabinoid is quickly rising in popularity.
