CBD 2.0: How These Adaptogenic Tinctures are making Summer 2020 Sweeter
Need a reboot?
For many of us, Summertime means the commencement of outdoor activities, weekend camping getaways, and the ultimate level of chill. Although times have changed, it’s important your favorite Summer rituals don’t fall through. Whether you’re a mountain junkie or an out-late night owl, PACHAMAMA knows how to keep your system in check, so you can make this Summer (and every Summer) your best yet.
Though being cooped up indoors during the past several months has allowed many of us a much-needed schedule reset, shifting gears may have thrown your natural sleep-wake cycle off guard. Not to mention, high stress has a large impact on mood, sleep, hormone function, and immunity, too.
Director of the Center for Circadian Biology, UC San Diego Professor Susan Golden describes the importance of a healthy sleep-wake cycle by stating,
“...there are lots of human illnesses in which people are poorly aligned to their environment. This can result from habits such as getting too much light at night, eating at odd times of the day and not sleeping regularly. In the cyanobacterium, it makes a very big difference for biological time and external environment time to be aligned."
Here is how CBD, in combination with specific medicinal herbs can help you get back on track.
#1. Daytime Fatigue & Allergies
Stress and lack of sufficient sleep leaving you feeling ...not so hot this summer?
Green tea & echinacea may be all you need.
Green tea is a natural energizer, containing essential antioxidants and vitamins to power you through your Summer adventures. Research further proves that green tea contains less acidity and caffeine than coffee, with enough power to produce an effect. It also contains the amino acid L-theanine, which can work synergistically with caffeine to improve brain function. And regardless of whether your plans involve an epic kayaking trip or a day filled with work, you’re going to need your noggin’ to function at its peak. Not to mention, coffee has a negative long-term impact on your health, and the energy that it does provide, usually leaves you crashing again by the afternoon.
Echinacea is a potent herb from the daisy family, popular for its immune-supporting properties. What’s even more interesting about echinacea is that this herb contains compounds that are similar to CBD in some functions. These compounds are like cannabinoids because they engage with and interact in the endocannabinoid system.
When both of these adaptogenic herbs are used in combination with CBD, you are able to find yourself alert, focused, and energized. Keeping your immune system functioning at its peak performance will keep your mind fuzz-free, so you can get back to doing the activities you love the most.

#2 Occasional Stress & Sleeplessness
It’s no secret that CBD is ultra-efficient for fighting occasional stress and promoting healthy sleep.
Kava kava and valerian take your chill to the next level—naturally.
Kava kava is an herbal, medicinal plant local to the islands of the Pacific Ocean. Naturally, kava is known to stimulate relaxation, and calm the body. In fact, indigenous people of the islands have used kava for centuries in social rituals, religious ceremonies, and for medicinal healing.
Calm + Social Gatherings = Your Best Summer Ever.
The active compounds found in kava (kavalactones) bind to receptors in the brain, specifically, the amygdala, which regulates the body’s response to occasional stress. Kava also promotes restful sleep, through its communication with GABA and serotonin neurotransmitters.
Valerian root is frequently used as an herbal treatment for those who suffer from insomnia. It also plays a role in brain neurotransmitters, by calming arising sensations of fear and improving sleep quality. That means, after a days’ worth of fun, valerian root can help you come back down to experience a calming night of relaxation and sleep.
I want quality and quantity.
We've come to learn over the past few years that the quality of sleep at night matters just as much--if not more-- than how many hours we're spending in shut-eye. And if we’re honest, staying up just a few hours past dark is extra special in the Summer while hanging out with friends or enjoying a warm, starry night. PACHAMAMA's Relax CBD tincture harnesses the power of adaptogenic roots —kava and valerian— with CBD, to promote a full night’s rest, without the next-day stress. Shop Relax here, so you can get to sleep and stay asleep.
