CBD products such as gummies, oils and drinks, have taken over the health space in recent years and have become notorious for improving chronic pain and promoting calmness. CBD drinks have been labelled as ‘hangover free sipping’, let’s look at how a CBD drink compares to a natural, cold pressed juice.

Why should I opt for a Sleep+ shot over a CBD drink?

Firstly, it is evident that both drink options aim to promote relaxation and improve the quality and length of sleep. Most importantly, if you are not well informed or are against consuming CBD, then Sleep+ is an obvious alternative. Whilst reaping the benefits of reduced anxiety and stress, and inducing a calmer state beneficial for sleep, this shot is also an easy way to consume some fruit and additional nutrients such as Vitamins C & B. Most importantly, the future effects of CBD on ones body are unknown. Various research has suggested that long term consumption of CBD could result in liver disease or damage. Therefore, Sleep+ offers a more gentle, natural alternative that will also benefit your wider health alongside the sought after benefits previously mentioned.
