Sleepy+: Feel Better Rested

Introducing Sleepy+_ Feel Better Rested

MONQ knows that you want to live your best life, and that requires a good night’s sleep. That’s why we’ve created a Sleepy blend family offering a variety of experiences, including Sleepy+, now available as an Original diffuser—a portable and disposable device filled with 200+ breaths of a CBD-infused essential oil blend.

Sleepy+ Primary Ingredients

Sleepy+ features four main ingredients: American-grown CBD, lavender, bergamot, and chamomile. The terpene-rich essential oils work to potentiate and optimize the CBD to create an entourage effect, leading to an enhanced aromatherapeutic experience. Anyone can add CBD. Only MONQ knows how to handcraft synergy to help you feel the way you want. Highlighted below are the primary ingredients in Sleepy+ and the benefits they provide. 

CBD

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is derived from hemp, a member of the cannabis family and cousin to the marijuana plant. Unlike its cousin, hemp does not contain THC, the psychoactive compound that produces an intoxicating effect, and so CBD enhances your experience, creating greater therapeutic benefits without a high. 

In Sleepy+, CBD works with the essential oil blend to calm the mind and body so that you can relax into a deeper sleep.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender essential oil has been shown to relieve stress and anxiety, improve cognitive function, and enhance sleep quality. This essential oil is most effective when used topically or aromatically.

Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot essential oil is filled with potent terpenes like linalool and alpha-pinene, which have sedative properties. This essential oil has been shown to relieve stress, reduce congestion, and improve digestion.

Chamomile Essential Oil

Chamomile essential oil has potent sedative properties. This essential oil contains both alpha-pinene and myrcene, two terpenes that have been shown to reduce stress. Most notably, chamomile essential oil has been shown to improve insomnia symptoms when used topically or aromatically. 

The Science Behind the Sleepy+ Blend

MONQ studied the effects of Sleepy on sleep and relaxation, using EEG. EEGs are used to detect brain activity through small electrodes on the scalp. During sleep, four types of impulses are observed: delta (1–4 Hz), theta (4–8 Hz), alpha (8–13 Hz), and beta frequencies (13–30 Hz).

The study found that Sleepy increased wave power in all four sleep wave frequencies by three percent. Sleepy also enhanced alpha+theta waves during sleep sessions, indicative of relaxed states. This series of studies demonstrated that the Sleepy blend effectively induces relaxation and promotes sleep. The infusion of CBD optimizes these effects to promote a deeper, sounder sleep.

Choose Your Experience

We know each person’s wellness journey is unique, which is why MONQ has created a variety of experiences for those seeking a good night’s rest. This Original diffuser joins a range of other popular products in the Sleepy blend family, including the classic Sleepy Original diffuser, Sleepy MONQ R, Sleepy Therapeutic Fragrance® Bottled Blend, Sleepy Roll-On, and Sleepy+ Roll-On

Final Thoughts

To relax into a deeper sleep, try breathing this blend about 30 minutes before going to bed. Let this synergistic blend of essential oils infused with CBD lull you to sleep so you can feel better rested.
