How long does Core Sleep with CBD take to begin working?

Everyone metabolizes ingredients at different rates, but you should start feeling the benefits of supported, healthy sleep the first night. Continual sleep improvements follow over the next 3-5 days, with full benefits realized after several weeks of usage.

What are cannabinoids?

A fancy word to describe the naturally-occurring chemical compounds found in cannabis, including CBD, CBN, CBG, THC, etc. Over 140 cannabinoids have been identified in the cannabis plant, as well as in cloves, black pepper, echinacea, broccoli, etc.

Isn’t cannabis the same as marijuana?

No. “Cannabis” refers to ALL products derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, while “marijuana” just refers to products containing significant amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the substance responsible for its mental effects. Core Sleep with CBD does not contain THC.

What are the benefits of CBD that scientists are currently studying?

Over 150 emerging studies show a wide range of CBD’s potential health benefits, including improved mood, better sleep, and reduced stress and pain.*

Is Core Sleep With CBD safe to take long-term?

Yes. Proper’s supplements are carefully formulated by Dr. Alice Hirschel, our resident PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry, and reviewed by a world-class panel of medical experts in sleep, integrative, and naturopathic medicine. They are drug-free, non-habit-forming, THC-free, and safe to take for short and long-term sleep health.

Ingredients

Ingredient story:

CBD is naturally found in cannabis, but has no psychoactive properties due to the lack of THC, which is completely removed after initial extraction.

Our supplement contains broad spectrum hemp extract instead of CBD isolate. The reason? Isolates, while composed of 99% pure CBD, are stripped of all other ingredients. We intentionally chose broad spectrum because, in addition to CBD, it is composed of phytocannabinoids that are naturally present in the hemp plant and contribute to the entourage effect, the theory that various compounds in cannabis work synergistically to create unique effects and benefits.

Emerging research:

Broad spectrum hemp extract has been and is currently being studied for sleep, mood, immune health, epilepsy, anxiety, cognition, pain management, and movement disorders.

Dosing:

Core Sleep with CBD contains 30 mg of broad spectrum hemp extract standardized to 25 mg of CBD per serving.

Ingredient story:

While most supplements are formulated with lower-cost, MCT oil, we opted for higher-quality, vegan algal oil. Originally wild-sourced from Nova Scotia marine algae, it contains 100% natural triglycerides combined with powerful antioxidants. It’s a potent source of omega-3 fat, which refers to polyunsaturated fatty acids that are widely found in nature and important for human diet and physiology.

Included is 530mg/g of Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a specific type of omega-3 fatty acid that is the primary structural component of the human brain, skin, and retina.

In addition to its various health benefits and plant source, Alphamega³530 TG algal omega-3 oil was selected because it's extracted in an aqueous-based process, which means no chemical solvents are used. The algae source also minimizes the risk of heavy metals often found in fish. The oil is de-colorized and de-odorized to meet strict quality parameters, resulting in a product that delivers the nutritional benefits of omega-3 DHA without an underlying marine smell or taste.

Emerging research:

Like fish oil, algal oil is a potent source of omega-3 fatty acids and according to ongoing studies, supports sleep time and quality — in addition to heart, eye, and brain health. The comprehensive benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are another reason we chose this oil.

Dosing:

Core Sleep with CBD contains 330 mg of our proprietary omega and terpene blend (alphamega³530 TG Algal Omega Oil, Myrcene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Linalool, Beta Pinene).

Ingredient story:

Terpenes are a diverse class of organic compounds produced primarily by plants and select insects. As the primary constituents of essential oils, they’re believed to be part of the “entourage effect,” the theory that various compounds in cannabis work synergistically to create unique effects and benefits. Four specific terpenes are included in Core Sleep with broad-spectrum CBD:

1. Mycerne

Mycerne is the most abundant terpene in cannabis and is also naturally found in mangoes.

Emerging research: It is being studied for its sedative and inflammation/chronic pain-reducing properties — although no trials have been conducted on humans in the public domain.

2. Beta-Caryophyllene (BCP)

BCP is found in cannabis, as well as black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, oregano, basil, and rosemary. It is one of the only known terpenes that binds to cannabinoid receptors and may provide some of the benefits associated with CBD’s “entourage effect.”

Emerging research: It is being studied for its effects on inflammation, pain, heart disease, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, diabetes, anxiety, and depression—although no trials have been conducted on humans in the public domain.

3. Linalool

Linalool is found in cannabis, as well as lavender, mint, cinnamon, coriander, and birch bark. It appears to be most responsible for the spicy and flora aroma of cannabis.

Emerging research: It is being studied for its effects on anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain, inflammation, and neurodegenerative disease (arthritis, depression, seizures, insomnia) — although no trials have been conducted on humans in the public domain.

4. Beta Pinene

Beta Pinene is the most common terpene in the world. It’s found in cannabis as well as coniferous trees, pine, rosemary, basil, and cumin.

Emerging research: It is being studied for its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-anxiety, and memory-supporting effects — although no trials have been conducted on humans in the public domain.

Dosing: Core Sleep with CBD contains 330 mg of our proprietary omega and terpene blend (alphamega³530 TG Algal Omega Oil, Myrcene, Beta-Caryophyllene, Linalool, Beta Pinene).

Ingredient story:

Valeriana officinalis, commonly known as valerian, is an herb native to Europe and Asia whose roots have been used since ancient Greek and Roman times as a sleep promoter. It plays a role prior to and during N1 (first sleep stage), when the body needs to feel calm, relaxed, and drowsy in order to move to N2 (second sleep stage). By working synergistically with a natural amino acid known as GABA, valerian root extract ensures a more relaxed, calm state.

Highlights:

  • Works synergistically with GABA to ensure a less stimulated response
  • Together, the two promote a more relaxed, calm mind and body
  • Promotes restful sleep

Dosing:

Core Sleep with CBD contains 300 mg of valerian standardized to a clinically beneficial dosage of 0.8%.

Ingredient story:

Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, which refers to a group of herbs that have been used in Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine) for thousands of years to promote longevity, enhance vitality, support a healthy immune response, enhance focus, and help reduce everyday stress and fatigue.

The Sensoril® Ashwagandha in our supplement is derived from a unique extract of the leaves and roots of the Withania somnifera plant that have been studied in 14 human clinical trials. It has been shown to decrease cortisol (a key marker of stress) and relieve occasional sleeplessness.

Highlights:

  • Decreases cortisol, a key marker of stress
  • Reduces malondialdehyde (MDA), a key marker of oxidative stress
  • Relieves occasional sleeplessness

Dosing:

Core Sleep with CBD contains a clinically beneficial dosage + standardization level of 125 mg of Sensoril® Ashwagandha.

Ingredient story:

Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is an amino acid produced naturally in the brain. When GABA binds to its receptor (GABA-A), it renders the neuron less responsive to stimulation. In essence, it suppresses or inhibits the central nervous system to reduce excitability and, when bound, produces an immediate calming effect that may support a reduction in stress, anxiety, and sleeplessness.

Highlights:

  • Reduces excitability
  • Promotes relaxation + calmness

Dosing:

Core Sleep with CBD contains a clinically beneficial dosage of 100 mg of GABA.

Ingredient story:

Sourced from Japan, Venetron® is a patented, purified, powdered extract from the leaves of a wild perennial plant native to Central Asia and warm regions in Europe: Apocynum venetum L. (or “Rafuma” in Japanese). It has been used for centuries to promote sleep health. By binding to the GABA-A receptor, it reduces excitability and produces a calming effect.

Venetron® has been shown to impact multiple stages of sleep—including N1 and N2, where it has been clinically shown to help sleep initiation, and N3, where it has been shown to enhance non-REM sleep time.

Highlights:

  • Improves initiation + maintenance of sleep
  • Helps you fall asleep faster + stay asleep
  • Reduces feelings of nervousness, restlessness, + irritation

Dosing:

Core Sleep with CBD contains a clinically beneficial dosage + standardization level of 50 mg of Venetron®.
