We have all become very aware of how important sleep is for our well-being. It enables the body to repair and getting the right amount of sleep may also help prevent excess weight gain, heart disease, and muscle recovery.
CBD has emerged as a popular and natural solution to help with sleep. Many studies show promising signs that CBD can be effective at improving your sleep patterns.
“Four patients treated with CBD had prompt and substantial reduction in the frequency of RBD-related events without side effects.”
A 2017 review of cannabis literature found thatpreliminary research into cannabis and insomnia suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) may have therapeutic potential for the treatment of insomnia. CBD may also hold promise for REM sleep behaviour disorder and excessive daytime sleepiness. Research on cannabis and sleep is in its infancy and has yielded mixed results. Additional controlled and longitudinal research is critical to advancing our understanding of research and clinical implications.
One of the most prescribed medicines to treat this problem is Valium (Diazepam). Valium has been linked to dependency and withdrawal symptoms so it’s no surprise that people are turning to a more natural option.
Research is still in its preliminary stages and we will continue to share information as it becomes available. What’s your experience with CBD and do you use it for its sleep improvement benefits? Let us know! Haven’t tried CBD for sleep? Read why our CBD gummies could help!
This is huge news for Cold-Pressed, something we couldn’t have achieved without your support! We are building something special and are delighted to have been recognised by what has become the GRAMMYS of cannabis!
Better still, we have achieved this across the 2 categories that mean the most to us. The first category is the ‘Most Loved Brand’. Our company mission is to destigmatize the cannabis plant and building a strong brand helps us to spread this message far and wide.
The 2nd category is ‘Best Industry Newcomer’. The CBD world has seen many developments over the last few years and to have been recognised in this very competitive category is something we are very proud of.
Our applications for both categories exceeded the quality score benchmark. This was calculated through their strict scoring system raising the quality standards of CBD products worldwide.
Thank you for your support and love along the way, allowing us to reach this important benchmark for the business and we now look forward to kicking on and continuing the fight for universal acceptance of the plant.
What is the entourage effect and why is it so important when talking about CBD? A great place for a deeper dive into this topic can be found here. Below, we pick out some of the key areas and explain why we believe in its merits.
The entourage effect is when you consume a combination of cannabinoids and terpenes rather than an isolate product (such as CBD isolate/Pure CBD).
It is believed that these compounds work together to produce a combined effect that’s significantly more effective than a single active ingredient.
In the research, here, the analysis revealed that pure CBD extracts were far less effective in reducing the occurrence of seizures in epilepsy patients than extracts that included a mixture of cannabinoids and terpenes. 71% of those who took this specific medicine had fewer seizures, with only 46% of those treated with pure CBD experiencing the same result. There is also lots of anecdotal evidence and we expect to see this area further explored with many research projects in the pipeline.
It’s no surprise that the natural plant in its entirety, is more useful than a lab-isolated product.
The event offered an opportunity for us to speak to a range of different retailers allowing us to think outside the box. The retailers included;
Independents – having already achieved a considerable amount of listings in this area, it was no surprise to see many health stores and other independent retailers drop by the stand to discuss our products.
Supermarkets – these outlets will allow us to spread the message far and wide to help us to achieve our mission for ‘Universal Acceptance of the Plant’.
Coffee shops – we have demonstrated great results when retailing our gummy bears in the Cabana Verde coffee shops. Our range of packaging allows for customers to try the gummies whilst enjoying their coffee and then take away a large pack to consume at a later date.
Cocktail bars – what better way to add a different element to your cocktail than including a gummy as ‘garnish’. Also, CBD can enhance the enjoyment of cocktails consumed in the bar.
Tattoo studios – the gummies really made their name whilst appearing in the studios of some of the best tattoo artist in the world. Therefore it’s no surprise that tattooist are expanded their range of goods by offering the 7 and 30 day packs to their customers.
Event organisers – this did come as more of a surprise, but demand also came from event organisers and private members clubs looking to bring something new to the party!

Having fallen down the rabbit hole of NFTs over the last months we have really begun to appreciate what ‘Web 3.0’ can bring to the world and, in particular, our creative community! As Cold-Pressed Cannabinoids has developed we have really built an affinity with our community and, along with showing our appreciation for your support, we also wanted to find ways that we can give back. Launching our first ever NFTs with our collaborators has been great fun and we look forward to continuing to push the boundaries to achieve our goal for acceptance for the cannabis plant.
What is an NFT?
NFT is an acronym for ‘non-fungible token’. This is a unit of data stored on a digital ledger, called a blockchain, that certifies a digital asset to be unique and therefore non interchangeable. In layman terms, an NFT verifies the authenticity of a piece of art, its origin and its ownership. When purchasing fine art, collectors are buying the values listed above and this new technology is the latest way to digitalise this asset class.
As you will know, each month we produce a unique subscriber gift in collaboration with an artist that we work with. The artist kindly dedicates their time to create a unique design that we incorporate into a gift such as hats, socks, stickers etc. We decided to give this art longevity by creating the design as an NFT. We then offer the opportunity to purchase the NFT and own something we believe has real value!
For those who wish to purchase our NFTs not only will you be supporting our aim for ‘Universal Acceptance of the Plant’ but you will also be supporting the artist. As we promote and grow our collection we also see the opportunity for further value creation!
